SHAKIRA The Singer Discusses Her Body Image Issues

"The Voice" Judges Give An "Extra" Interview

I love Shakira so much for opening up about her experience with motherhood so far!  She is just so real and tells is like it is, instead of trying to paint  the whole experience as something out of a fairy tale!  The singer and judge on The Voice appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres show for a special Mother’s Day episode where she talked about what it was like when her son Milan was first born;

“Delivering a baby is not as idyllic as people make it seem. Don’t expect that he is going to be rosy cheeks, cherub when he is born. Actually, when I saw mine, I was like, ‘Oh my God,'” Shakira joked to Ellen DeGeneres. “‘He is purple and wrinkled. What is this?'”


“Looking at your new image in the mirror . . . I looked like a Shar-Pei when I first delivered,” she said. “I was like, ‘Oh my God. Am I ever going to be sexy again? Is my man ever going to feel attracted to me again the way he used to be?'”

Who would have thought that Shakira would have body image issues!? Just goes to show you that we all get those feelings, no matter what we look like!
