Shakira Did A Candid Interview About Her Split From Gerard Pique, And Said “There Is A Place In Hell” For Women Who Don’t Support Other Women
Shakira has had a rough couple of years; the Spanish government charged her with tax fraud, she got attacked by wild boars, and her relationship with Gerard Pique ended after he cheated with 23-year-old Clara Chia. Since the split, 46-year-old Shakira’s been pretty open about her anger towards 36-year-old Gerard. See: her diss track and the balcony witch she faced towards her soon-to-be former mother-in-law’s house. Now, Shakira’s condemning the other woman to infierno! The Independent reports that, during a candid interview on the Mexican program, En Punto con Enrique Acevedo, Shakira said, “There is a special place in hell for women who don’t support other women.” Well, at least Clara Chia will have some company while she’s burning up down there: Amy Poehler and Tina Fey!
Now, Shaki didn’t overtly reference Clara Chia, and some people online claim her words were taken out of context. Here’s exactly what Shakira said. via the Independent:
“I bought the story that a woman needs a man to be complete. I had that dream of having a [nuclear] family: mother and a father living with their children living under the same roof. Not every dream in life comes true, but life finds a way to make it up to you,” the “She Wolf” singer responded, per The Independent’s translation.
“There is this quote… that I love, and it says, ‘There is a special place in hell for women who don’t support women.’”
Even though I’d love to credit Taylor Swift as the originator of this now-iconic saying, according to the Internet, it can be attributed to former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright circa 2006. Shakira goes on to tell interviewer Enrique Acevedo that she experienced “catharsis” after recording her anti-Gerard track with Bizarrap, and she’s got more confidence after the breakup:
Shakira admitted that she’s “always been very emotionally dependent”. “I just love love. But I think somehow I see things from a different perspective now,” she reflected. “I feel I’m enough and I think when a woman faces challenges in life, they come back stronger. You learn to see your flaws, to embrace your vulnerability and express that pain you might be feeling.”
Here’s a few clips of Shakira’s interview, if you speak Spanish:
Este video es importantísimo. Esa dependencia emocional de la habla Shakira la podíamos intuir de sus canciones, observar ciertos “patrones” en ella pero que sea capaz de reconocerla y articularla es clave para su proceso ❤️ La quiero abrazar. pic.twitter.com/ZBHINnphIO

I wonder what Clara Chia, Tina, and Amy can expect to find in that “special place in hell”? Lil Nas X giving Satan a lap dance? Madeleine Albright waiting to stick a red hot fire poker up their assholes? Endless herds of hungry wild boars?
