Shakira, 46, told Enrique Acevedo of Canal Estrellas Monday, repeating a famous quote from Madeleine Albright. She appears to be referring to her ex-husband, Gerard Pique, and his new 23-year-old girlfriend, Clara Chia Marti.
"I've always been emotionally dependent on people." "I've been able to understand that story from another angle, and today I'm enough on my own," she said, adding that her new power comes "from experiencing a difficult loss, of accepting it, of tolerating a frustration, and of acknowledging that life doesn't always bring us what we desire."
Shakira said she's now focusing on being a "lioness" for her and Gerard's two sons, Milan, 10, and 8-year-old Sasha.
She released a song called "BZRP Music Session #53," which included the lyrics, "You left me with my mother-in-law as a neighbor," and she was debted to the government. "You thought you hurt me, but you made me stronger."
If I hadn't written that song, I'd be in a completely different situation, "she told CNN. I took a photo of myself and my feelings of agony." This is one of the things that I am most grateful to Biza, for giving me that space, that opportunity to vent. It's also necessary for my own healing, for my own recovery process.
Shakira said Bizarrap's suggestion was "a Milan suggestion." "Milan told me: 'Mommy, you must do something with Bizarrap... he's the Argentine god!'
