Shakira really knows. She is not only queen of Latin music, but also of resilience. She is a master in the application of the saying 'In bad weather, good face'. Because she has known how to play like no one else the desperate game that she had on the table: a traumatic breakup with Gerard Piqué and a trial for tax fraud that could have landed her in jail. And she has done it in her own style. Like the wolf that she is, in the best sense of the word. That is, a matriarchal, powerful animal that defends its own with all its resources. Baring their teeth, howling or biting if necessary. Music Session
He released the bomb song with Bizarrap and it exploded in the form of a record of downloads and collection. To the point that last Wednesday she won the Latin Grammy for Best Pop Song. She said the lyrics exactly: “You left me as a neighbor to your mother-in-law / With the press at the door and the debt in the Treasury.” Well, she has already lost sight of her mother-in-law, in Miami she breathes much easier and has settled the Treasury problem with an agreement that is very favorable to her. The eight years in prison and the fine of 23.8 million euros that they were asking for have been transformed into three years in prison replaced by the payment of 432,000 euros and a fine of 7.3 million. A millionaire sum but almost laughable for Barranquilla, which only with the issue with Bizarrap has far exceeded this amount.
And Shakira is not the least bit stupid. She has stood up and has known how to be practical, beyond her suffering. Wow, the saying that “women no longer cry, women make money” has been applied. And she has given strength to many who, like her, have suffered abandonment and betrayal. But it's been almost a year and a half since the breakup with Piqué and, now, after the sword from the Treasury (in the entire process she will have paid more than 25 million) we hope that the Colombian finds inner peace. May new times come for her and Hurricane Shakira calm down. Please. Because so much wind gives us migraines.
She hinted as much herself when she picked up the Grammy. That a new stage began. She promised her children that from now on she would be happy. And after the judicial agreement, she stressed that she was doing it for them. "I had two options: continue fighting until the end, mortgaging my peace of mind and that of my children, stop making songs, albums and tours, without being able to enjoy my career and the things I like, or make an agreement, close and leave this behind chapter of my life looking forward,” he declared in a statement. Well yes, it's time, Shakira. Look forward. And not just for them, but for all of us.
