It's well established that the most celebrated hips in music don't lie, and neither does Shakira's song "23." Monday night at the iHeartRadio Theater in Burbank, Calif., the sultry singer told her wild audience (one of the rowdiest, most excited audiences we've ever seen!) and those watching Yahoo Screen's live stream: "I looked into those blue eyes and I was like, 'This is right.'"
Host Ryan Seacrest asked the blushing Shakira about her love life with hunky Spanish soccer star Gerard Piqué, who at age 27 is 10 years younger than the singer. The age gap did make Shakira hesitate at first, but Piqué won her over. She said with a giggle, "We are very touchy-touchy. We like to be all over each other." The happy couple, who met when Piqué was 23—hence the song title—welcomed their baby boy, Milan Piqué Mebarak, to the world in 2012.
Out of the whole interview, the answer we love the most was this valuable piece of wisdom Shakira gave when asked if she believed in love at first sight:
"Yes. It is a tough question. You feel that there is an avalanche coming when you meet the right person. I think love is something that you have to work on and it develops over experience and time. Love is a practice."
Before the show, Yahoo Music chatted with the star about her duet "Medicine" with fellow "Voice" judge Blake Shelton. Shakira told us she had eight versions of the song, and selected the country-style version because of her love of the genre's distinct storytelling style. From there, she contacted Blake, and he loved it!
In front of a packed house, Shakira commanded the stage like a rock star, golden mane a-flying, with a set of new hits from her highly anticipated album "Shakira." and the perennial classic "Hips Don't Lie."
Shakira's new album "Shakira." will be available starting Tuesday, March 25, with three bonus tracks on the version that is available exclusively at Target.
