Global superstar Shakira She spends very little time in swimwear, but a lot in the water. The singer is an avid surfer, and her regular beach garb is a wetsuit, though there have been a handful of times she’s rocked a bikini and showed off the look with fans.
The “She Wolf” singer likes to design her own swimsuits rather than shop major brands. In an Instagram clip from 2019, Shakira wore a hot-pink bikini with fringes on the front and hips. “Check out the bathing suit I designed!” Shakira proudly noted in the caption.
In another snapshot of her creation, Shak wrote, “Ok last bathing suit pic for now … Only one question: who wants me to design a bathing suit for you girls?” Of course, she had an overwhelmingly positive reaction to becoming a swimwear designer but has yet to pursue her talent in that field.
That’s probably because Shakira has spent two decades as a global pop superstar, first conquering the Latin music market then transitioning to English to gain a whole new audience with such early aughts hits as “Hips Don’t Lie” and “Whenever, Wherever.” Shakira has wowed audiences the world over with her high-energy concert tours which include her incredibly sexy dance moves.
Shak’s hectic work life slowed down a little after meeting Spanish soccer star Gerard Piqué while filming a video for her 2010 World Cup anthem, “Waka Waka.” The two officially confirmed their relationship status in 2011. Shakira revealed to fans on Instagram in September 2012 the couple was expecting their first child. Son Milan arrived four months later, on January 22, 2013. Sasha arrived exactly two years after Milan, on January 29, 2015.
The entertainer’s Instagram feed then became a mix of motherhood and music superstardom photos intermixed, along with loved-up photos with her hunky Barcelona F.C. Player boyfriend. They never married because they were content with their relationship.
Shakira’s rep announced that their 11-year relationship was ending on June 5, 2022. “We regret to confirm that we are separating,” the pair said in a joint statement released by Shakira’s rep, adding, “For the well-being of our children, who are our highest priority, we ask that you respect our privacy. Thank you for your understanding.”
Gerard and his new girlfriend Clara Chia Marti Shakira said that in August 2022 she would be releasing a new album. Elle the following month, “I feel like in this moment of my life, which is probably one of the most difficult, darkest hours of my life, music has brought light.”
Shakira showed it in 2023 by releasing a track that was seemingly directed at her former. In “BZRP Music Sessions #53,” the Colombian beauty sang, “I’m worth two of 22/You traded a Ferrari for a Twingo/You traded a Rolex for a Casio,” seeming to refer to Clara, who was 22 when she began dating Gerard.
Another telling line was a possible slam on the retired soccer player. “So much talk of being a champion/And when I needed you, you gave me the worst version of you,” she belted out, adding, “Sorry baby, I should have thrown you out a while ago/A she-wolf like me is not for rookies.”
