Shakira drops jaws in sexy black swimsuit as she graces Rolling Stone cover – and talks reconnecting with herself after Gerard Piqué split

Shakira dropped jaws as she graced the cover of Rolling Stone in a sexy black swimsuit.

The Whenever, Wherever singer, 47, worked her magic in low-cut swimsuit adorned with golden accents as she ran her hands through her glossy blonde waves.

Her gorgeous complexion shone with mascara, blush, and a slick of lip gloss.

Shakira opened up about her life after splitting from long-term partner Gerard Pique, whom she shares sons Milan, 11, and Sasha, nine, with.

The music icon vulnerably described the sacrifices she made during her relationship and how she has begun to find herself again since their split.

‘When you leave a relationship of many years, there are things about yourself that seem to have been lost along the way,’ she told the publication.

‘There’s things about yourself that you change for the other person or give up. When that relationship breaks down, you feel like you’re left with nothing and you have to heal, search for yourself, and travel back toward the center of yourself.’

Shakira made Gerard and their children her top priority during their relationship and even moved to Barcelona for him, as he played soccer for FC Barcelona. 

But during her time in Spain, Shakira noticed certain things about her were changing. 

‘I was in sweatpants in Barcelona!’ she told the outlet. Referencing the glossy pants she was wearing, she added, ‘I mean, these are sweatpants, but they’re Amiri. In Barcelona, I was wearing sweatpants from the Gap, with my hair in a bun.’

She has since moved to Miami with their children and is happy to report her Caribbean accent is beginning to return.

‘My accent! My Caribbean accent is back now that I’m out of Spain,’ she gushed.  ‘Now I’m hanging out with Barranquilleras from my kid’s school and surrounded by Cubans, Puerto Ricans, Dominicans, Colombians. Yeah, my accent is back, thank God.’

She also has got her ‘sexy back.’

‘More swag. I got my swag back. And I got my sexy back,’ she says.
