Shakira HATED Barbie?! Check Out This Hot Take!


You’re kidding us! Shakira of all folks didn’t like Barbie?!

The Waka Waka singer unleashed the scorching sizzling absorb her new Allure profile on Monday. During a convo about feminism, the query got here up concerning the already beloved movie. But Shak dissatisfied the interviewer by saying:

“I watched it, yeah.”

And then an extended pause. Eventually she fired off:

“My sons absolutely hated it. They felt that it was emasculating.”

But that wasn’t all! She’s on the hater practice, too! She stated:

“And I agree, to a certain extent. I’m raising two boys. I want ’em to feel powerful too [while] respecting women. I like pop culture when it attempts to empower women without robbing men of their possibility to be men, to also protect and provide. I believe in giving women all the tools and the trust that we can do it all without losing our essence, without losing our femininity. I think that men have a purpose in society and women have another purpose as well. We complement each other, and that complement should not be lost.”

“Robbing men of their possibility to be men”? “Losing our femininity”?? Uh oh. It sort of appears like Shakira thought Barbie was woke rubbish! Is this girl actually workforce Ben Shapiro?!

That’s fairly upsetting, tbh. We thought the film fairly particularly mocked poisonous masculinity, not that it stated males typically had been ineffective. Or in different phrases, it made enjoyable of LAME GUYS. But for those who hear No Scrubs and instantly suppose, WhY aRe tHeY bEinG mEaN tO Me? Well, we will’t enable you there.

Obviously Shakira’s sons are very younger, and the film wasn’t essentially made for that demo. But grownup males — and ladies — who thought the film was simply anti-man? OR anti-femininity??? We don’t get it.

But actually we additionally don’t get how Shakira could possibly be so anti-Barbie when she’s additionally preaching such an anti-patriarchy message herself! Heck, she instructed the Allure reporter, when requested about enjoying the position of the Biblical Eve on the duvet of her 2005 album Oral Fixation, Vol. 2:

“Eve was a story created by misogynists to put women in the little box where we have to remain silent, not speak our minds, and not be a catalyst for change. To keep things as they are… I think there’s something refreshing about women when they get to be themselves and be unapologetic. Because we’ve had to apologize so many damn times in the past.”

We imply… preach it, gurl! But like… she additionally thought Barbie was reductive? She’s positively not on that Shapiro crybaby wavelength, so what provides?

Well, it could be that phrase in there we talked about. It sort of appears like Shak doesn’t wish to be preached to! While talking about recording her new music after her very public divorce, she defined:

“Creating this album has been a transformation in which I have been reborn as a woman. I have rebuilt myself in the ways I believe are appropriate. No one tells me how to cry or when to cry, no one tells me how to raise my children, no one tells me how I become a better version of myself. I decide that.”

“No one tells me how I become a better version of myself.” Definitely not a plastic doll come to life, proper?

But once more, even when she didn’t dig the messenger, she’s sort of hammering the identical message so far as we will inform. Because she stated:

“In the past, when women went through a difficult situation, they were expected to mind their manners, to hide the pain, to cry in silence. That’s over. Now, no one will control us. No one will tell us how to heal, how to clean our wounds.”

Sounds good to us. What do YOU take into consideration Shakira’s learn on Barbie? And the way it parallels or differs from her personal model of feminism?? You can learn her full interview for extra context HERE!
