Shakira Covers Glamour, Talks BF-Approved Curves, Utopia With Rihanna [PHOTO]
Shakira covers the February issue of Glamour, her beautiful face framed by a big mess of beachy waves. She also reveals that she no longer feels the pressure to be skinny and that she found working with Rihanna to be heaven on earth.
The cover lands just in time for ‘Can’t Remember to Forget You,’ the Colombian dynamo’s new single featuring RiRi. It was first reported as ‘Can’t Remember to Forget,’ but Shak’s tweet of the cover art confirms the title with a “You” at the end. You can see the cover below, boasting two director’s chairs, as opposed to scantily-clad shots of either sexalicious singer.
February is also Shak’s bday month, as she’ll turn 37 on Feb. 2, so it’s more of a reason to celebrate.
In the feature, she talks about embracing, as opposed to battling, her curves, and the utopia that was working with RiRi. Do we sense a girl crush coming on here? Yeah, we do.
Shak admitted that her BF and baby daddy, footballer Gerard Pique, likes her figure to be shapely.
“My man, Gerard, prefers meat over bone,” the singer said. “He doesn’t like too skinny. That takes pressure off. I already have a lot to worry about. This month I’m not exercising because I have an album to finish and I have a baby. And I like these pastries in front of me.”

She also gushed about RiRi, saying, “Working with her was utopia. She’s the sexiest woman on the planet.” Next to Shakira herself, of course.
The fact that both are “Caribbean girls” made their collabo that much tastier.
“The chemistry was so good and so real,” Shak said. “She taught me dance moves, she was a sweet teacher.”
Aw. We cannot wait to see them tango in the track’s video whenever it lands.
But back to the present and immediate future. Hurry up and get here, Jan. 13 — that’s when the single drops. We’ll be waiting.
