Shakira Flaunts Sculpted Physique in Her First Performance After Giving Birth ‎

Shakira is one H๏τ mama! The 38-year-old singer made her first on-stage appearance since giving birth to Sasha, her second child with soccer star Girard Pique, back in January.

“Came to surprise some friends tonight,” she wrote on Facebook alongside a pic of her backstage rocking a form-fitting little black dress that proved she’s been working hard all year long.

Shakira looked absolutely stunning as she took the stage in Barcelona to perform “Mi Verdad” alongside the rock group, Mana.

Check out the video to see Shakira’s impressive bod and tune in to The Insider With Yahoo on TV tonight for the latest in entertainment news.

No, you’re not the only one still gobsmacked by Shakira’s impressive MTV VMAs performance from September 12, when she was recognized with the Video Vanguard Award.


Britney Spears is too — that’s why she was dancing with those knives on Instagram. When she posted the initial video on September 25, Spears wrote, “I started playing in the kitchen with knives today 🤷🏼‍♀️🤷🏼‍♀️🤷🏼‍♀️ !!!”

This prompted worry from some fans, including someone close to the star who reportedly called police for a wellness check.

Per the Los Angeles Times, a sheriff’s deputy from the Ventura County Police Department visited Spears on September 27, and the check “was sufficient,” per a spokesperson.


Since then, Spears has clarified that the knives are props, and she just wanted to try out some of Shakira’s moves. (It’s traditional in multiple cultures to dance with knives.) “No one needs to worry or call the police,” Spears wrote. “I’m trying to imitate one of my favorite performers Shakira … a performance I was inspired by !!! Cheers to us bad girls who aren’t afraid to push boundaries and take risks 💅🏼💅🏼💅🏼!”

Adding, “The way Colombia has served as inspiration for my career as an artist is immeasurable. Colombia is a never-ending source of inspiration: for colors, culture, sounds, stories, folklore, and food. It’s such a rich culture and I’m so grateful to have been raised where I was and have it be my lifelong muse.”

Looking back on her decades-long career, where her music has stood the test of time, Shakira said she’s proud to “represent women who come from my country” in a “male-dominated industry.”

However, she’d still like “to have more female producers and engineers. I do see more representation on the artist side, but I think there still could be more on the industry side.”


Earlier this month, Shakira received the coveted MTV VMA’s video vanguard award, which recognizes an artist’s lifetime achievement.
