Pop icon Shakira reflected on the idea of happiness after moving on from a painful breakup with longtime boyfriend Gerard Piqué
The Whenever Wherever singer opened up on coping with life following the split with ex Gerard Piqué over cheating allegations and single-handedly raising her two children.
Shakira, in a conversation with Billboard, shared that she can't summarize the idea of happiness. She said, “I don't think everyone has access to happiness. It's reserved for a very select number of people, and I can't say I'm part of the club at this moment.”
The Waka Waka crooner also discussed revitalizing her music career, saying that she has channeled the pain of her break-up into her music.
Shakira admitted, “Nothing can compensate for the pain of destroying a family.” She went on to add, “Of course, I have to keep going for my children's sake; that's my greatest motivation. But my biggest dream, more than collecting platinum albums and Grammys, was to raise my sons with their father. Overcome obstacles and grow old together. I know I'm not getting that now.'
Shakira recently became the first South American artist to receive the Video Vanguard Award at the MTV VMAs.
She is also among the top nominees at the upcoming Latin Grammy Awards. The singer also earned massive popularity following the release of her diss-track, Bzrp Music Sessions, Vol. 53, in which she detailed a story of betrayal amid allegations of infidelity on Gerard's part, who is now dating Clara Chia Marti.
