The world was taken aback when music icon Shakira and football star Gerard Piqué announced their split last June. Now, in a recent interview on the “Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” Shakira opened up about how she’s been coping with the breakup.
The singer revealed that she discovered Piqué’s infidelity in an unexpected way – by noticing that her jam kept disappearing and neither her sons nor Piqué were eating it. Since then, Piqué has gone public with his new girlfriend, Clara Chia Marti.
However, Shakira has found solace in music, and her new song “Bzrp Music Sessions, Vol. 53” has become a global hit. The song, which Shakira describes as a healthy way to channel her emotions, has resonated with many women around the world who can relate to her situation with her ex.
“I really felt that I don’t even have fans out there,” Shakira said. “I have a sisterhood of women who have been through the same things that I have been through, who think the way I think, who feel the way I feel, who had to put up with so much crap the way I had to.”
Shakira and Piqué met in 2010 on the set of her song “Waka Waka (This Time for Africa).” They confirmed their romance the following year and have two sons, Milan and Sasha.
Despite the pain of the split, Shakira is grateful for the support of her fans and the newfound sisterhood of women who can relate to her experiences. And as she continues to channel her emotions through music, she proves that even in the toughest of times, art has the power to heal.
