Focused on Her Kids and Career

Shakira, the globally renowned music star, has made it clear that dating is not a priority for her at the moment.

In a recent Rolling Stone cover story, the 47-year-old singer, who is set to embark on a world tour in November, shared that she is “not thinking” about finding a romantic partner anytime soon. Her focus remains on her children, Milan, 11, and Sasha, 9, whom she shares with her ex-partner, Gerard Piqué.

Aftermath of Her Breakup

Shakira and the former soccer player ended their 11-year relationship in June 2022 amidst rumors of Piqué’s infidelity with his current girlfriend, Clara Chia Marti.

Reflecting on her current stance on relationships, Shakira humorously remarked, “What can I tell you, I like men. That’s the problem. I shouldn’t like them with everything that’s happened to me, but imagine how much I like men that I still like them.” She added that her children’s emotional and psychological well-being is her top priority, and they would need to be very prepared for her to enter a formal relationship.

Embracing Independence

Despite not seeking a romantic partner, Shakira is open to having friends and emphasizes her newfound independence. She shared, “I’m so much less fragile than I thought.

I was always so scared of pain because I thought I wouldn’t survive it. Through this process, I became stronger than I thought I was. I became a more independent person, one who doesn’t rely on anyone but herself and her wolf pack.”

Creative Freedom and New Music

Her recent musical endeavors also reflect her independence. Shakira credited being single as a significant factor in her ability to work on a complete body of music, releasing “Las Mujeres Ya No Lloran” in March.

During an appearance on the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, she noted that not having the “husband-factor” has allowed her to focus on her music: “Now I’m husband-less. Yeah, the husband was dragging me down. Now I’m free. Now I can actually work.”

Conclusion

Shakira’s focus remains on her music, her children, and her personal growth, embracing her independence and strength following her separation from Piqué. With her world tour on the horizon, Shakira is dedicated to her career and family, proving that she is stronger and more independent than ever.
