A Chat With SHAKIRA
She’s a superstar, mother, and still has time to sit next to Adam Levine on The Voice. The gorgeous Shakira is featured on the cover of Glamour’s February issue. The singer chats about her amazing success, dueting with Rihanna and her education charity, The Barefoot Foundation. With dazzling blonde hair and radiant skin, this beauty is the quintessential star with beauty and heart.
Photographer Nicolas Moore took these brilliant shots in the second annual ‘hair flip’ issue, featuring Shakira on the front and back covers. There’s a special ‘mini mag’ included that features over 100 new hair ideas. Here’s a glimpse of the singer’s special interview:
Shakira on her success…
“Success happened little by little for me. I tasted the flavor of fame in small doses: I started at 10 years old when I won a music contest; I was performing at birthday parties, company meetings. I met with a record executive when I was 13 and sang ‘Material Girl’ to a cassette-tape boom box. I’ve shaken hands at every radio station, from Honduras to Ryan Seacrest’s. One day [I realized I was famous] enough. But here’s the thing: I’m still hungry. But I’m not hungry for fame—just the need to prove to myself that I can still do this.”
Shakira on her vision for her life…
“I feel like I’m not on earth just to shake it and shake it endlessly, you know?”
Shakira on her duet with Rihanna…
“[W]orking with her was utopia. She’s the sexiest woman on the planet. And at the end of the day, we’re both just basically Caribbean girls. The chemistry was so good and so real. She taught me dance moves. She was a sweet teacher.”
