Shakira slams ex Gerard Piqué's new girlfriend Clara Chia
The singer talked about the need for women to support other women, while also celebrating her latest hits.
Shakira didn’t hold back in criticizing ex Gerard Piqué's new girlfriend, Clara Chia, during a recent interview.
What did Shakira say about Clara Chia?
The singer let her feelings known when discussing women supporting each other. Shakira and Piqué split back in June 2022 after 11 years together, and he went Instagram official with Clara last month.
“There is a place in hell reserved for women who don’t support other women,” said Shakira while speaking to Enrique Acevedo of Canal Estrellas on Monday.
Shakira added that she has more confidence in herself following the split, and that while her dream of having a family with a mother and father under the same roof have been dashed, she is still grateful for what she has.
“I bought that story, that a woman needed a man to complete herself,” Shakira added. “I also had that dream of a family where the children had a mum and dad under the same roof.
“You don’t achieve all your dreams in life but life has a way of compensating you and I think life has certainly done it with me with the marvellous two children I have who fill me with love every day.
“I’ve always been emotionally quite dependant on men, I’ve fallen in love with love, and I think I’ve been able to understand that story from another perspective and today I am sufficient on my own.
“When a woman has to face life’s battles she comes out stronger.”
Shakira celebrates her musical accomplishments
Although Shakira has been in the headlines due to her personal life in recent months, her music continues to thrive after becoming the third most listened to artist on Spotify globally.
“I am glad this is happening to a Colombian, to a Latin American woman, and that it’s happening for me in Spanish. That’s when I say that it is worth it, and that I have a purpose in society, a place, a role,” she said.
“I constantly have a debt with myself: I want to check if I really have talent or if I still have it, if it has not disappeared. That’s what makes me want to go back to the recording studio and, now, I’m more excited than ever.”
