It’s deniable that 2013 has definitely been the year of Colombian superstar Shakira. This Latina has had an incredible year in different areas of her life.
From her romance with FC Barcelona Gerard Pique to her success as a judge on NBC’s The Voice to the birth of her son, Milan, the year 2013 has brought Shak as her fans affectionately call her, a whirlpool of joys.
“When I met Pique the sun came out,” Shak tweeted at the start of their relationship and though rumors of a sudden split between the two surfaced Shakira quickly put them to rest on twitter yet again. “What I wouldn’t do for those blue eyes,” she tweeted in Spanish and posted a picture of her sweetheart.
Her time on the show The Voice was also well accounted for Shakira’s on set chemistry with Adam Levin and Usher and her enthusiastic on-air persona helped make Season 4 the best to date according to online fan sites for the show. So much so that Shak was called back for the upcoming 6th season starting on February of 2014.
But it’s safe to say that of all the good things 2013 brought for the “Hips Don’t Lie” singer the birth of baby Milan was by far the best.
In an interview alongside fellow The Voice judge Usher Shakira opened up about her new feelings about motherhood. She said that it was way different than how she had imagined in her mind that it would be but that she loves being a mother and still being able to “things for myself and my career.”
Her most recent album has been delayed several times but is scheduled to be released early in 2014. The album will feature musical collaborations with a few artists including singer Rihanna.
