Are you excited to see Shakira return to ‘The Voice‘ for the winter 2014 season? She had some great advice for her mentees last year, I thought. Shakira is also the perfect choice for Glamour’s February issue, because it’s the “hair flip” issue. This means Shakira’s on both the front and back covers. When you “flip” the issue over, you get a mini-magazine packed with hair tips. Shakira also sat down to chat with Glamour.
Shakira on her duet with Rihanna…“[W]orking with her was utopia. She’s the sexiest woman on the planet. And at the end of the day, we’re both just basically Caribbean girls. The chemistry was so good and so real. She taught me dance moves. She was a sweet teacher.”
Shakira on working with fellow The Voice judge Adam Levine and other men in the industry…“Dealing with boys at work and being the only girl can be challenging. I have my insecurities, but I’ve learned I have to be a good sport. I have to be able to take certain jokes and not take them personally. There are jokes made almost every second of the day. I had to develop a tough hide. You know, the music industry is dominated by guys. I work with men 98 percent of the time—producers, arrangers, musicians, engineers.”
Shakira on her success…“Success happened little by little for me. I tasted the flavor of fame in small doses: I started at 10 years old when I won a music contest; I was performing at birthday parties, company meetings. I met with a record executive when I was 13 and sang ‘Material Girl’ to a cassette-tape boom box. I’ve shaken hands at every radio station, from Honduras to Ryan Seacrest’s. One day [I realized I was famous] enough. But here’s the thing: I’m still hungry. But I’m not hungry for fame—just the need to prove to myself that I can still do this.”
Shakira on her vision for her life…“I feel like I’m not on earth just to shake it and shake it endlessly, you know?”
Shakira on whether she has gotten any grief from Latin fans about her blond hair or being too thin…“At the beginning. But my man, Gerard, prefers meat over bone. He doesn’t like too skinny. [Laughs.] That takes pressure off. I already have a lot to worry about. This month I’m not exercising because I have an album to finish and I have a baby. And I like these pastries in front of me.”
Shakira on whether the injustice she saw growing up planted the seed for her education charity…“Being raised in a developing country opened my eyes to so much I cannot tolerate. In Colombia, education is sometimes considered a luxury, not a human right. And it’s not a priority in the agendas of many leaders. I feel a real sense of duty to use the voice and the platform I’ve been afforded by my fame to speak out for those whose voices don’t get a chance to be heard. [The Barefoot Foundation] provides education to vulnerable kids who live in extreme poverty. We’ve built six schools in Colombia and do work in South Africa and Haiti. We teach 5,000 students.”
You can read Shakira’s entire interview, and check out the hair tips, in the February issue of Glamour. It hits newsstands on January 14 and is available digitally now.
