Having sold more than half a billion records worldwide and owning the most-liked Facebook page in the world, this Latina goddess is a pop icon to say the least. Shakira is the epitome of summer beauty on the cover of Glam, with her bronzed skin taking center stage framed by her seriously swoon-worthy golden strands, which by-the-way, she loves. “I like that blond hair gives a lot of light onstage and makes my face pop a little more. The dark hair made me look more goth. And besides, how many blond Latinas are there in the world? Hello! [Laughs.]” And with barely-there eye makeup complemented by a shimmery light pink lip, it looks like the star just returned from a day at the beach — the sexiest beach ever.

Now 37 years old, the Colombian virtuoso recently dropped her tenth album, Shakira, almost a decade after releasing her first debut album. And her success doesn’t end with her unstoppable music career – Shakira and soccer-star boyfriend Gerard Piqué are the happy parents of one-year-old son, Milan (talk about some good-looking genes).
So, will we be hearing wedding bells anytime soon? Probably not, Shakira told Glam, “We already have what’s essential, you know? We have a union, a love for each other, and a baby. I think that those aspects of our relationship are already established, and marriage is not going to change them. But if I’m ever going to get married, he’s the one.” Although it may not be the most traditional route; for Shakira, love is all you need – and that’s a philosophy we can get behind.
And as if we didn’t love her enough, Shakira also started the foundation (when she was only 18, may we add), “Fundación Pies Descalzos,” in an effort to improve the education and health of children worldwide. So far, the foundation has built six schools, improving the standard of living among communities worldwide.
