Shakira covers the February 2014 issue of Glamour magazine. In the interview, Shakira talks about her duet with Rihanna. Shakira praises Rihanna and says she was a "sweet teacher." Shakira also talks about her success and her vision for life.
On Her Duet With Rihanna
: "[W]orking with her was utopia. She's the sexiest woman on the planet. And at the end of the day, we're both just basically Caribbean girls. The chemistry was so good and so real. She taught me dance moves. She was a sweet teacher."
On Her Success
: "Success happened little by little for me. I tasted the flavor of fame in small doses: I started at 10 years old when I won a music contest; I was performing at birthday parties, company meetings. I met with a record executive when I was 13 and sang 'Material Girl' to a cassette-tape boom box. I've shaken hands at every radio station, from Honduras to Ryan Seacrest's. One day [I realized I was famous] enough. But here's the thing: I'm still hungry. But I'm not hungry for fame - just the need to prove to myself that I can still do this."
On Her Vision for Life
: "I feel like I'm not on earth just to shake it and shake it endlessly, you know?"
The issue arrives on newsstands on January 14. You can see some photos from Shakira's cover shoot here
