Shakira on Working with Rihanna: It Was Utopia!

Shakira on Working with Rihanna: It Was Utopia!

Shakira sexily plays with her hair on the cover of Glamour magazine’s February 2014 issue, on newsstands January 14.

Here’s what the 36-year-old entertainer had to share with the mag:

On working with Rihanna for their upcoming duet: “[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.”

On working with men in the industry: “Dealing with boys at work and being the only girl can be challenging. I have my insecurities, but I’ve learned I have to be a good sport. I have to be able to take certain jokes and not take them personally. There are jokes made almost every second of the day. I had to develop a tough hide. You know, the music industry is dominated by guys. I work with men 98 percent of the time‚Ä”producers, arrangers, musicians, engineers.”

On her vision for her life: “I feel like I’m not on earth just to shake it and shake it endlessly, you know?”

FYI: Shakira is wearing an Alexandre Vauthier dress on the cover.
