Shakira, the global pop icon known for hits like “Hips Don’t Lie” and “Whenever, Wherever,” is embracing her newfound independence.

Shakira, who shares two children with her former partner Gerard Piqué, opened up about the challenges of balancing her career and family life during their relationship. She admitted,

“In a way, it’s kind of good not to have a husband because… I don’t know why, it was dragging me down, man.”

While Shakira didn’t elaborate on specifics, her comments suggest she felt her creative drive diminished while in a relationship.

For 11 years, Shakira was in a relationship with soccer player Gerard Piqué. However, amid infidelity rumours, the couple separated in 2022. Shakira now admits that being married had a dampening effect on her music career. With Gerard out of the picture, she feels a renewed compulsion to work and create music like never before.

Following the split, she seems to be experiencing a creative resurgence. She expressed a renewed focus on music, stating,

“Now I feel like working. I feel like writing songs. I feel like making music. It’s just a compulsive need of mine that I didn’t feel before.”

This newfound energy is exciting for fans who have been eagerly awaiting new music from the Colombian singer.

Her experience highlights the complex relationship between personal life and artistic expression. While some artists thrive in single-focused environments, others find inspiration and support in their relationships. Ultimately, the ideal balance is unique to each individual.

Shakira’s newfound singledom isn’t all sunshine and rainbows. As a single parent to her two sons—11-year-old Milan and 9-year-old Sasha—she faces unique challenges. Yet, it’s precisely this independence that fuels her artistic fire. Without a husband in the equation, Shakira is holding down the fort, both as a mother and as a passionate artist
