She Wolf

I’d never thought I’d write a blog post about…Shakira. But I just saw this stunning beauty of a woman in an interview on a Swedish TV show (where Dolph Lundgren was one of the other guests – how funny is that?) which completely changed my whole idea about her.

I’ve never really been a fan of her music although I must give her credit for some of the most floor filling tunes of the last decade. There is something utterly feminine about her that awakes the She Wolf in each woman.

The “She Wolf” as she describes it is “a woman of our time, individualistic, free of prejudices, that fights with teeth and claws for her liberties and doesn’t let herself be locked up in society’s cage”

In the interview she also quoted Rousseau, said that everyone should be “political” but not a politician, spoke intensely about her commitment to child care and education in Colombia, stated that she had just finished her history of western civilization studies at UCLA and that women may dress in short skirts but they know what they’re talking about.

I absolutely love watching modern dance and this is one of the best interpretations I’ve seen of resistance, strength, devotion and madness…a She Wolf breaking free.

I’d never thought I’d be so inspired by…Shakira.
