Shakira Accepts Latin Grammys with a Subtle Dig at Ex-Gerard Pique
Shakira added another chapter to her already illustrious career by taking home three awards at the Latin Grammys on Thursday night. The Colombian singer-songwriter, who is no stranger to the spotlight, took a subtle dig at her ex-Gerard Pique during her acceptance speech.
Shakira, who split from Pique in June 2022 after 12 years together, received the awards for Best Pop Song and Best Urban Interpretation from her ex’s Spanish teammate, Sergio Ramos. In her acceptance speech, she expressed her gratitude to her fans for their unwavering support during the challenging times in her life.
I want to express my heartfelt gratitude to my Spanish fans, she declared. Your unwavering support has been a beacon of light, guiding me through the darkest moments and lifting me up when I needed it most.
Shakir’s remarks were widely interpreted as a reference to her breakup with Pique. The couple had been together for over a decade and share two children together, Milan and Sasha.
In addition to her two awards, Shakira also won Best Song of the Year for her collaborative track with record producer Bizarrap, Shakira: Bzrp Music Sessions, Vol. 53. The song, which was released in January, is a breakup anthem that has been widely interpreted as a diss track directed at Pique.
Shakira’s Latin Grammys win is a testament to her enduring popularity and her ability to connect with her fans on a personal level. Her subtle dig at Pique was also a reminder that she is not afraid to speak her mind, even when it comes to her personal life.
