Shakira Says Partner Gerard Pique 'Doesn't Tell Me What To Do'

Shakira rocks a zebra print dress for the cover of Ocean Drive‘s May/June 2014 issue honoring “Women of Influence.”

Here is what the 37-year-old singer and The Voice coach had to share with the mag:

On how she makes her relationship with Spanish soccer star Gerard Pique work: “In my house, I would say the balance of power is fairly equal. Relationships have to have a give and take if they’re going to work in the long term. Gerard doesn’t tell me what to do‚Ä”we discuss everything as a couple, as I imagine most partners do. We have a beautiful relationship and one of mutual trust.”

On how becoming a mother has changed her: “Everything is different. Maybe the biggest change is that I think about the future more, what the world will be like for him when he grows up. But when it comes to living, it’s all about the present.”

On working with Rihanna for the provocative “Can’t Remember to Forget You” music video: “It was a blast, honestly. I’m sure on the outside it looks like two divas, but when we got together, we realized we had a lot in common‚Ä”both Caribbean girls from small towns who are very down to earth when it comes down to it, and just enjoy having a good time.”
