Shakira Talks Family & Relationship in ELLE July 2013

Taking time away from “The Voice” judging table, Shakira soaked up the spotlight on the cover of ELLE magazine.

Check out a few highlights from Shakira”s interview below. For more, be sure to visit ELLE!

On Gerard:
“He has his own world and that”s actually one of the healthiest things about the relationship. I know that he”s the one person who is with me not because of any interest other than the love that unites us. THere”s nothing I can offer him beyond my womanhood – does that word exist in English”

On becoming a mom:
“I”m still trying to figure it out. And I have a feeling I will try to do the same for the rest of my life. Some people put it like it”s very idyllic, some people put it like it”s a torturing experience, but it”s not quite one thing or the other. It”s like life – it comes with everything.”

On her friends on “The Voice”:
“In general, I think I”ve treated the boys with mercy.”

On what”s next for her music:
“I have no idea of where I want to go musically, but I”m fine that way. I don”t need to remain faithful to any concept, you know.”
