Shakira, the famous Colombian singer, and songwriter has been making headlines recently for her controversial statement about the notion that a woman needs a man to complete herself. In a world where traditional gender roles and expectations continue to prevail, Shakira’s statement has sparked a much-needed conversation about the harmful stereotypes that perpetuate the idea that a woman’s worth is tied to her relationship status.
Shakira, who has been in a long-term relationship with Spanish footballer Gerard Pique since 2010, has been vocal about the importance of maintaining a strong sense of self and independence in a relationship. She has often spoken about how her relationship with Gerard Pique has enriched her life but has also emphasized that she does not need him to feel complete.
Shakira’s Controversial Statement: Debunking the Myth That a Woman Needs a Man to Complete Herself
Shakira‘s statement that a woman does not need a man to complete herself has been met with both praise and criticism from people around the world.
“I believed the narrative that a woman needs a man to make her whole. “I also saw a household with a mother and father living together,” she told the source.
“You don’t achieve all your dreams in life, but life has a way of compensating you, and I think life has certainly done it with me with the marvelous children I have who fill me with love every day.”
Shakira continued by describing how she was emotionally dependent on Gerard Pique and how their split had made her “stronger” to handle whatever life had in store for her.
“I’ve always been fairly emotionally reliant on guys, but I’ve also been in love with love, and I think I’ve been able to see that tale from a different angle, and now I can survive on my own,” the singer from Colombia remarked.
Shakira stated, “There is a place in hell designated for women who don’t support other women,” in an apparent jab at the 23-year-old PR student. “A lady becomes stronger after facing the challenges of life.”
