Shakira has broken her silence and gives new details about her break with Gerard Piqué. The singer has granted an interview in which she has made it clear that she has remained silent “to process everything.” The Colombian also confirmed that she had to deal with all this while her father was torn between life and death and that sometimes she feels that everything is a “bad dream”.
“Oh, it’s very difficult to talk about this, especially since it’s the first time I’ve talked about this situation in an interview. I stayed silent and just tried to process it all.”
“It has been difficult not only for me, but also for my children. Incredibly difficult. I have a paparazzi camping out in front of my house, 24/7. And there is no place where I can hide except in my own house.”
A total circus
“I have tried to hide the situation in front of my children. He tried to protect them, because that is my priority in life. But then, at school, they hear things from their friends. It seems like a total circus to me.”
take refuge in music
“Writing music is like going to a psychiatrist, only cheaper. Music is definitely one of those tools, one of the few tools I have to survive extreme situations. There have been days when I have had to pick up my pieces from the ground and the only way to do it, to really do it, has been through music.
A bad dream
“My job allows me to put myself together, and realize who I am and why I’m here, what my purpose and mission is,” he said in an interview with Elle.
