Shakira's Body: Asking to Reproduce

Shakira's Body: Asking to Reproduce

Shakira shows off her best assets on this revealing cover of Rolling Stone.

The 32-year-old “She Wolf” singer spoke to the magazine about femininity, motherhood and the pressures of being a woman.

“You know, women have to make enormous efforts through life, much larger than men,” Shakira shared. “We deal with so many pressures: the pressure of aesthetics, and how society wants us to deliver our performances as mothers, daughters and wives.”

But she’s ready to focus on starting family, Shakira said. “My body feels like it is asking to reproduce, to have a huge belly and carry babies.”

The singer has been in a relationship with investment banker Antonio de la Rua for the past nine years.

    She might be rethinking this given that her man has a history of cheating on her! Something her “people” have had to squash more than once!

    what a hottie

  • Shakirakitten

    Yes, Shakira, go have those babies. They are such a good thing in life.

  • Posh

    Love the cover she looks incredible and I cant believe she’s over 30!

  • caroline

    Where did the cleavage come from? Duct Tape Trick 1001?

    She’s been one of the rare females who has resisted a boob job.

  • caaro !

  • hissip

  • Ashley

    She is so attractive. She’s laid low for the past few years, good to see her back on top!

  • ARI

    She’s hot!!! love her. Is she in love with Matt Damon?

  • notalezzie

    I’m not one to have girl crushes but Shakira is so tempting. Doh!

  • Meadow

    PREACH Shakira. Women are under much more societal pressure than men…especially, and unfortunately, from other women.

  • Jen

    She is right. Love her

    What a KILLER body…..To me, Shakira has THE perfect body. Not too thin and no too thick. Perfect. She’s too gorgeous. And I love how she moves. I’m her biggest fan (even though she’s not such a great vocalist. Her dance moves take over me.) but I don’t like her stupid “she wolf” crap nowadays….so not the style I’ve always LOVED of her!

  • lexy

    She’s awesome! Not loving the current song either but I’m sure she’ll have other stuff out soon that I’ll like. She’s very talented and that’s so rare today in the music industry!


    Even though I still like her belly dancing, I lost ALL RESPECT for Shakira since the slutty video of SHE WOLF. And where the hell does this stupid statement come from ??? “my body is asking to reproduce” !!!!!!!!!!!! Sooooooo dumb and brainless !!!!!!!!!

  • ailis

    her boyfriend is the son of the former president of argentina, de la rua…he left the presidency building on a helicopter, he couldn’t run the country, leaving it more miserable than it was before!! that whole family is hated over here. shakira honestly could do better.

  • anna

    @ANANASCOUSCOUS: maybe it’s not dumb, just lost in translation! english isn’t her first language you know?! it’s spanish! maybe it makes sense in spanish..

  • Eric

    ANANASCOUSCOUS, I think you need to do some reading of real poetic books because your lack of intelligence is shining through. Reproduction mean having babies. Therefore…her body is asking to have babies… or “the clock is ticking”…Hope this clarifies. It’s not lost in translation, it’s just illiteracy

  • [forgetMEnot]

    I love how she can be sexy without being vulgar like some artists today.

  • bebe

    i love her. love her awesome songs and gorgeous face. i hope she get what she wish for and keep low profile like always.

  • jp fan

    Love Shakira. Homegirl is hot. I wish I could dance like her and Beyonce too.



    ERIC … it’s always so funny when some people like you can be aggressive just to defend their idols. Thank you for explaining life to me. Without your help I was “lost in translation” and couldn’t understand the metaphorical meaning of Shakira’s statement. Without your help, I couldn’t understand the meaning of the word “reproduction” which is the same in english and in french which is my mother tongue.

    I could make your day by starting a pathetic argument on a celebrity forum like this one but unlike you, I have a life.
    I maintain the fact that very often miss Shaki says very stupid things in her interviews and we just have a perfect example with this legendary sentence :
    ” my body feels like it is asking to reproduce”.

    This has nothing to do with her talent. She obviously has some.



    Excuse me …. did you watch her SHE WOLF video ?????????

  • Mauricio De Souza
