Shakira was on the cover of Elle for the month of July, and in the interview she opens up about The Voice, her relationship with Gerard Pique and being a mother.
She said of her coworkers on The Voice, "In general, I think I've treated the boys with mercy."
On her relationship with Pique she said, "He has his own world and that's actually one of the healthiest things about the relationship. I know that he's the one person who is with me not because of any interest other than the love that unites us. There's nothing I can offer him beyond my womanhood - does that word exist in English?"
She said she is still figuring out being a mother.
"I'm still trying to figure it out. And I have a feeling I will try to do the same for the rest of my life. Some people put it like it's very idyllic, some people put it like it's a torturing experience, but it's not quite one thing or the other. It's like life - it comes with everything," she said.
