Launches line of baby toys

Shakira pairs with Fisher-Price to launch First Steps, a collection of toys and baby gear. Shakira is the first celebrity with whom the company has partnered. The line is to appear on shelves in November. Shakira:

I saw how important developmental milestones are and how toys can help babies reach them — including with my own son. I wanted to design a line of toys that stimulated development in the crucial early stages of life, the stages in which learning can be achieved through supervised play, fostering the development of psychological, social and motor skills.

Social media and specifically Facebook has helped myself and other artists bridge the gap between the stage and the audience.

Medicine

Single Release

Shakira sings with Shelton in the single, Medicine. Shakira:

I think I have real folk roots in my previous albums.The acoustic guitars, that type of narrative, songs that have a traditional structure. And I said to Shelton, ‘I want to do that type of song.’ When I wrote the song I didn’t know what direction to go in and I did like eight versions. Dance, pop … but I said no, this is a country song.

Shakira interview

Interview

Seacrest interviews Shakira during On Air With Ryan Seacrest and asks her which The Voice co-host gets on her nerves the most.

Adam [gets on my nerves the most] because he’s so competitive! And Usher is like Switzerland, he’s a little more neutral. And Blake can get on my nerves too, but he’s too funny.  But I think the chemistry is better than ever, it’s just great.

Seacrest interviews Shakira during On Air With Ryan Seacrest and asks her if her boyfriend agreed with the sexy theme of her video with Rihanna, Can’t Remember to Forget You. 

I told him. I asked him if he agreed with everything and he agreed I wanted to make sure because he’s super jealous. He’s territorial. He wants to know everything is under control.

Can’t Remember To Forget You

Rihanna releases the music video for single Can’t Remember To Forget You. Shakira says:

Working with Rihanna was utopia. She’s the sexiest woman on the planet. And at the end of the day, we’re both just basically Caribbean girls. The chemistry was so good and so real. She taught me dance moves. She was a sweet teacher.

Shakira interview

Interview

Seacrest interviews Shakira during On Air With Ryan Seacrest and questions her about her collaboration with Rihanna.

We’re both from the Caribbean, so I always thought we had this common ground and this song is pretty reggae, but it also has that rock attitude that I think Rihanna has, so that’s why I thought she was the natural choice for collaboration on this record, but I also thought it was a little bit of a challenge to get her to record this track because she’s so busy. I honestly thought it’d never happen, but I said, ‘I’m going to send it to her and see what happens.’ And she heard the record and she loved it and she said she was on board and I was the happiest girl alive!
