Shakira’s Boyfriend Won’t ‘Let Her’ Work With Male Singers Anymore, Which Sounds Super Healthy


Oh Shakira.  How I wish you (and your hips) were lying about your relationship with your boyfriend and the limits he feels he can place on your career.  Remember that video Shakira made with Rihanna‘s butt?  Turns out there was a more prominent reason behind (no pun intended) it beyond “straight, hot women pretending to be gay gets straight guys really hot and bothered.”  Apparently Shakira’s boyfriend and father of her child, Girard Pique, only wants her butt rubbing on other women only from now on:

“He’s very territorial, and since he no longer lets me do videos with men, well, I have to do them with women. It’s more than implied in our relationship that I can’t do videos like I used to.  It’s out of the question  which I like, by the way.  I like that he protects his turf and he values me, in a way that the only person that he would ever let graze my thigh would be Rihanna.”

Since “territorial” would be the type of word I’d use to describe how my dog feels about his stuffed batman toy whenever anyone else goes near it, I can’t really relate to using that term to describe my relationship.  You know why?  Because it sounds pretty unhealthy.  Don’t get me wrong, if she’s tickled pink to be considered “his turf”, then that’s her prerogative.  I’m just saying it’s a damn shame that the career she’s achieved and I’m sure worked pretty hard for has the potential to suffer because her boyfriend doesn’t know the difference between real and pretend.

Also, if he’s so jealous and insecure, could he have picked a less vixen-like video co-star than Rihanna?  I mean, she’s no Pollyanna.  You’re not going to see her starring in a video wearing a Duggar Denim special, you know?  Sigh.  I’m not saying I’m an expert in celebrity relationships or that I have any right to judge how someone else defines “happiness” or anything, I’m just saying I wouldn’t be surprised if this relationship doesn’t last longer than you can sing the chorus from “Whenever, Wherever.”

      His name is actually GErard Piqué. I know this is an american site but he is a soccer player in FC Barcelona, the best team in the world. He belongs to the national team that won the last world championship in Africa. He is not just a random guy, he is a celebrity on his own. Hemight still be a dick though, there’s no denying that.

        Where he plays soccer is SO not the point.

        Haha.. I was reading this comment and thinking exactly the same. Whatever where he plays, who he is or how many milions he makes a year. That don’t give anyone the right to be a douch. And it’s sad that she thinks this is a good thing.

        Yeah, when your significant other uses the word “territorial” to describe you, where you play soccer or how famous you are doesn’t change your fundamental jackassery.

      That’s disappointing, especially since Shakira just got of a guy she was with for 11 years who turned around and tried to sue her for $100 mil. You’d think she’d make better choices the second around. I’ve been following Shak’s career since she was thirteen years old and she’s always been considered a powerful female force, even back then. I don’t know, maybe squeezing out a kid makes you bow to its father or something.
