Shakira has said that her personal drive comes from the fact that she never wanted to live in poverty again.
Shakira, whose father William Mebarak Chadid was declared bankrupt when she was growing up, has revealed that seeing others worse off than her family made her even more determined to succeed in her own life so that she could help others.
The 33-year-old told The Big Issue: “My dad went bankrupt when I was eight years old. I remember the day I realised that pretty much all of the comfort of our lives was gone. We had had very decent lives – two cars, my dad had a successful business and then from one day to the next we lost everything.
“He took me to the park to show me a reality much worse than ours. There were all these barefoot orphaned kids who were sniffing glue. I guess the image stuck in my head. I promised myself, ‘One day I’m going to succeed because there’s no way I’m not having a car again’.
“And I thought, ‘If I ever do it, I’m going to do something about these kids’.”
Shakira kept her promise by setting up a charity when she rose to fame at the age of 18.
She added: “When I had my first big success with Pies Descalzos, the album that made it big in Latin America when I was 18, I decided to establish my first foundation in Colombia.
“Ever since, I’ve been investing all my efforts in education, which have achieved amazing results for kids who live in poverty and conflict or kids who might have been recruited into the guerrillas or drugs cartels. Instead, they’re on their way to college. How can I not believe in this so passionately?”
Como Ama una Mujer (How a Woman Loves) is the first full Spanish-language album from American singer, actress, dancer, Jennifer Lopez. It officially released on March 27th, 2007. The album was produced by the world’s most renowned Colombian composer in the world, Julio Reyes.
The photoshoot for the album was done on September 4 and September 5 in New York City by photographers Markus Klinko and Indrani. The video for the lead single “Qué Hiciste” was filmed in Las Vegas in October, and was directed by Michael Haussman.
The song “Qué Hiciste” was released to some radio stations in January. The song will be on all radio stations the day the album is released which is March 27th, 2007. 4 tracks on the album feature the strings of the London Symphony Orchestra. Argentine Latin rock singer Fito Páez worked on some tracks of the album, including the first single “Qué Hiciste”. Jennifer recorded in Puerto Rico with producers Luny Tunes and Pharrell on a reggaeton track titled “Te Voy A Querer”.
Jessica Simpson goes back to basics for Marie Claire’s May issue, gracing the cover with zero makeup or Photoshop retouching. Why would anyone expose themselves to that kind of scrutiny, you might ask? For Simpson, it’s all in the name of real beauty.
Following the launch of her VH1 TV show, “The Price of Beauty,” Simpson, who has been frequently pummeled in the press for her weight issues, is now launching a new initiative with Operation Smile called A Beautiful Me to empower women everywhere to appreciate their own beauty.
Though it sounds like the singer has developed quite the thick skin since the “mom jeans” debacle in January 2009 — “I don’t have anything to prove anymore. What other people think of me is not my business” — the 29-year-old is not completely immune to the pressure in Hollywood to maintain a size zero figure.
