“I live for music and in some way music lives in me,” she told El Pais. “…I am made of this and for this. My every fiber. If I don’t sing and dance, I suffocate.”


Shakira revealed that she is writing new songs and plans to return focusing on her career in March. She gave birth to her second son, Sasha, just over a year ago.


She called her role in Zootopia “super fun” and different than anything she had done before, adding that she had been offered similar projects in the past but had turned them down.


“It looked to me like she needed more hips [and] I asked them to give her more,” Shakira told Spain’s El Pais newspaper in an interview coinciding with the premiere of the movie in Barcelona, the Colombian pop star’s adopted home town. “And they did it!”
