Shakira Talks About Her Curves: My Boyfriend “Doesn’t Like Too Skinny”

Everyone knows Shakira’s hips don’t lie and, fortunately for her, she doesn’t need to lie either … at least about her weight. The Voice coach said her boyfriend, FC Barcelona soccer player Gerard Pique, isn’t into the waif look (sorry, Kate Moss). In fact, she told Glamour magazine (via Us Weekly) that he likes his baby mama, who gave birth to their son Milan in January of 2013, on the meatier side!

"My man, Gerard, prefers meat over bone. He doesn't like too skinny," Shakira told Glamour during an interview for her cover shoot. "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."

Lucky girl! It must be nice not to have to have added pressure on top of that which comes from working in the already stressful entertainment industry. And her Latin fans are likely thrilled to hear this news as well, as she said she got flack from them for being too thin towards “the beginning” of her career.

It’s interesting to note that fellow Voice coach Christina Aguilera has also made similar statements about putting her son before exercise.

“If I have to choose between working out and spending time with my son after a hard day, it’s not even a question,” the “Beautiful” singer told Redbook magazine in their November issue last year.

Good for these gorgeous and fit ladies. It’s certainly nice to have healthy role models for teen and tween girls these days.

As for the collaboration with Rihanna that Shakira just announced via Twitter, she told Glamour that “Working with her was utopia.” She went on to say, "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."
