Shakira shared her emotions and experiences after the end of her marriage to Gerard Piqué. The singer revealed that she had moments of happiness, but also admitted to living in a state of survival. Previously, she prioritized family life during her marriage, but after the separation, she found art as a form of therapy and a way to give a voice to women who went through situations similar to hers.
“I experienced moments of happiness and reflection, but I cannot say that I am in a state of complete happiness at this moment,” said the artist. “I believe that happiness is something reserved for a very select group of people, and I don’t see myself being part of that group at the moment. There are moments of happiness, distraction and also nostalgia.”
Shakira shared that she went through several emotional stages after her divorce, including denial, anger, pain, frustration, and a series of cycles of emotions. Now, she finds herself in a state of survival, feeling like she needs to keep her head above water to move forward.
After the end of her marriage, Shakira experienced musical success, mainly with songs that explore the breakup and take jabs at Piqué, as is evident in her hit “Bzrp Music Sessions, Vol. 53”. This move represented a major transformation in his lifestyle, as his previous priority was family life while in Spain, focusing on his children and marriage.
