Shakira could be utilizing all the bad press to her advantage in order to produce new music. The artist from Colombia recently posted a mysterious message on social media. The article displays a video with the words “No fue culpa tuya,” which translates to “It wasn’t your fault,” and typewriter noises in the background.
Fans immediately began to speculate as to whether it was related to her release of new music or her breakup with her longtime companion Gerard Piqué.
“I feel something incredible is coming,” a fan wrote with another adding, “Stop apologizing if it was his fault.”
Shakira has experienced a difficult year. In addition to divorcing her partner of more than ten years, her father is ill, the Spanish government is looking into her, and she might spend eight years in prison.
Shakira recently made an appearance on the cover of Elle Magazine and gave an update on her music as well as some information about her personal life. She remarked, “I feel like in this moment of my life, which is probably one of the most difficult, darkest hours of my life, music has brought light.”
She claimed to have sacrificed everything for her family. “As a soccer player, he wanted to play football and to win titles and I had to support him. I mean, one of the two of us had to make a sacrifice, right?” she said. “And I did it. I put my career in second gear and I came to Spain, to support him so he could play football and win titles. And it was a sacrifice of love,” she said.
“Thanks to that, my kids were able to have a present mom, and I have this amazing bond with them that is unbreakable and that sustains us. You know, that is it. That’s all I can say.”
Shakira also discussed the song “Te Felicito,” which many people believe was written in reaction to her split. When questioned about the song’s lyrics and their possible allusion to her relationship with her ex, she responded, “Either consciously or subconsciously, everything I feel, everything I go through is reflected in the lyrics I write, in the videos I make. When the glove fits, it fits. Like I said before, my music is that channel.”
