Shakira is offering up relationship advice in the new issue of Ocean Drive.
The Voice coach has raised some eyebrows in the past when commenting on her relationship with boyfriend Gerard Pique, but the singer is clearing the air and speaking on equality in the magazine’s Women of Influence issue.
Shakira explained, “In my house, I would say the balance of power is fairly equal. Relationships have to have a give and take if they’re going to work in the long term.”
She continued,”To me, being powerful means you are in control of yourself above all and know how to use your strengths to achieve things that are important to you – in my case, a lot of the time that ends up being philanthropic endeavors,” the 37-year-old added.
