Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.
Shakira Opens Up About The Other Woman
We reported yesterday that the Colombian singer would be sitting down with Mexican journalist Enrique Acevedo with news station Canal de las Estrellas.
Ahead of the interview, Acevedo wrote on Instagram, “I am pleased to share with you that tomorrow on the Canal de las Estrellas news, we have a preview of our exclusive conversation with Shakira. We went to Barcelona to talk about her music and lyrics, the moment she is going through in her career, and what is coming in her life.”
The interview aired on February 27th and it did NOT disappoint.

Piqué and Shakira called it quits in June 2022 due to the retired fútbol player’s infidelity.
He quickly got into a relationship with his Kosmos employee, Marti (23), soon after they announced their split.
It’s rumored that Marti was the woman he was cheating on Shakira with, but has never been confirmed.
Shakira admitted she has learned A LOT since breaking up with her partner of nearly 12 years.
Shakira: “There’s A Place In Hell” For Women Like Marti
Since the split, she’s realized she can be entirely “self-sufficient” after buying “into the story that a woman needed a man to be complete. I’ve always been emotionally quite dependent on men I’ve fallen in love with, and I think I’ve been able to understand that story from another perspective, and today I am sufficient on my own.”
Shakira continued, “There is a place in hell reserved for women who don’t support other women.”
You may recall that the “Hips Don’t Lie” singer found out Piqué was cheating (allegedly with Marti) on her from an opened jar of jam.
According to ShowNews Today, the Colombian-native had returned home from a trip with their children when she found a jar of strawberry jam in their fridge.
Shakira Is Focused On Becoming A “Lioness” For Her Children
Seems harmless if the entire family like strawberry jam, BUT nobody in Shakira’s home likes that kind of jam.
She instantly knew that her children and Piqué do not eat strawberry jam, and so her suspicions that someone had been staying at their home while she was gone grew immensely.
What’s more, the jam had been eaten.
Shakira alluded to the incriminating evidence in her music video for “Te Felicito” featuring Rauw Alejandro.
The song title translates to “I Congratulate You” in English. Shakira congratulates a male figure for being a good actor in the song.
Despite the deceit, mistrust and lies, Shakira told Acevedo that she’s “come out stronger” after facing “life’s battles.”
“When a woman has to face life’s battles, she comes out stronger,” Shakira noted.
Shakira’s focus is solely on her two children, whom she shares with Piqué, and becoming a “lioness” for them.
“That strength comes out of experiencing a painful loss, of accepting it, of tolerating a frustration, of understanding that life doesn’t always bring us what we want,” she explained. “There are dreams that are broken, and you have to pick up the little pieces from the ground and put yourself together again and also be an example to my children.”
