• Shakira is not a fan of 'Barbie'
  • She criticized the movie heavily
  • THIS is what she said

Shakira sat down with 'Allure' magazine and told her version of things to reporters. The article delves into her perspective on raising sons in a world where pop culture juggles the empowerment of women and the identity of men.

Empowerment or Emasculation?

In an eye-opening twist that's got everyone talking, Shakira, the Colombian chart-topping sensation, has unleashed a wave of surprise with her take on the cinematic sensation, 'Barbie'.

"My sons absolutely hated it," she declares, stirring the pot in a world where gender discussions are as heated as her Latin beats!

The "Hips Don't Lie" hitmaker isn't one to shy away from tough topics. "They felt that it was emasculating," Shakira admits, aligning with her boys' verdict. Her protective maternal instinct kicks in as she adds, "I’m raising two boys. I want ’em to feel powerful too [while] respecting women."

Shakira's stance is clear: empower women, yes, but not at the cost of men's essence. "I believe in giving women all the tools... without losing our essence," she asserts, striking a chord with those who yearn for balance in the empowerment equation.

When probed further, Shakira doesn't back down. "Why not share the load with people who deserve to carry it," she challenges, pushing the boundaries of traditional roles and sharing the spotlight of responsibility.
