Shakira’s ex Gerard Piqué has admitted to listening to her so-called “diss track” that appears to mock him and his new girlfriend.
The ‘Hips Don’t Lie’ singer’s former partner – who has sons Milan, 10, and eight year old Sasha with Shakira – broke up from her last year after a 12-year relationship and she recently released the tune ‘Bzrp Music Sessions, Vol. 53’, which she has said was a cathartic way of expelling her pain over their break up.
Gerard said in an interview with Barcelona-based radio station RAC1” Yes, obviously (I’ve listened to it.)”
But adding how he didn’t want to comment further, the ex-Barcelona centre back added: “I don’t want to talk about it – I don’t think I should talk about it.”
After a long, awkward silence, Pique stressed that all he wants is for his kids to be happy.
He said: “We have a responsibility, those of us who are parents must protect our children.
“Everyone makes their own decisions. I don’t feel like talking anymore. I just want my children to be well… I’ve always had a close relationship with my children.”
Shakira said at the weekend she used her new song to get rid of the “c***” she has endured since becoming single.
She said on ‘The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon’ about releasing ‘Bzrp Music Sessions, Vol. 53’ in the wake of her split from Gerard: “I’ve had a very rough year since my separation and writing this song has been so important to me.
“It’s been a healthy way to channel my emotions.
“I really felt that I don’t even have fans out there. I have a sisterhood of women who have been through the same things that I have been through, who think the way I think, who feel the way I feel, who had to put up with so much c*** the way I had to.
“And I did write the song for me but also I feel that it was meant for so many women out there that needed a forum and a voice to represent them in so many ways.”
Shakira sings on ‘Bzrp Music Sessions, Vol 53’ in an apparent dig at Gerard’s new girlfriend, Clara Chia Marti, 23: “I’m worth two 22’s. You traded a Ferrari for a Twingo. You traded a Rolex for a Casio.”
The three-time Grammy winner and Gerard released a joint statement announcing their split last June.
