Shakira used to have low self-esteem and didn’t love her curves. The singer admitted that she wished away her figure, along with her hips, and curly hair.
She said: “All through my twenties I spent more time worrying what I didn’t have than thinking about what I did have. I wished I was taller, had longer legs, slimmer hips, a smaller bottom, even straighter hair”, she added. “I’m just like all women – we’re born to criticise ourselves.” Shakira described her therapy as “incredibly liberating” and praised her therapist for allowing her to “not feel pressured”.

Shakira says she feels better about herself now. Thank heavens. We’d never have been treated to the eye-raping horrors of her humping speaker boxes, if she hadn’t gotten over her issues. Pictures below show Shakira as she waves to fans by her midtown hotel in New York City, New York on January 22, 2010.
