The Barbie movie which came out last year is still making headlines
00:04
this time with Colombian pop star Shakira,
00:07
who was the mother of two boys.
00:08
She gave her hot take on the popular movie in a recent
00:11
interview. Damn, she got dragged for this comment in an
00:15
interview. Shakira said my sons absolutely hated it.
00:18
They felt that it was emasculating and I agreed to a certain
00:21
extent. Damn. She also added,
00:25
I like pop culture when it attempts to empower women without robbing
00:29
men of their possibility to be men to also protect and provide
00:34
I think that men have a purpose in society and women
00:37
have another purpose as well.
00:39
Why, why are you dragging Barbie?
00:41
Like what did Barbie do to you,
00:44
Shakira? Like she like,
00:46
OK, your boy you didn't need to go public with,
00:48
with the what your son said?
00:50
You could have just kept that in the group chat.
00:51
You know, like do you think mommy,
00:53
we don't like it like she might be jealous because you know
00:55
who was on the album?
00:56
Carl G was a real T maybe but you know what I'm
01:02
a little confused, Shakira,
01:03
your album is kind of a woman empowerment.
01:06
I mean the title is Las Mujeres.
01:08
Jano. Jan women no longer cry.
01:11
Ok. But why are we crying about the Barbie movie being
01:13
emasculating? Tell me about that because for me,
01:16
it was surface level.
01:17
I felt like the Barbie movie could have gone a lot farther
01:20
you know, like it touched on a couple of issues
01:24
but I think she just missed the whole point of the
01:27
movie. So I guess Shakira versus Piquet just turned into Shakira
01:31
versus Barbie. Damn,
01:33
you wanna get really canceled?
01:34
Y'all wanna know the real hot tea that I got you giving
01:37
J Lo vibes. This is what happened.
01:41
She did, she did her New York Times Square performance and
01:44
everyone said Shakira from the block,
01:46
Shakira from the block.
01:47
Now she acting like J Lo you acting J Lo ish right
01:50
now. This is hurting my heart.
01:52
Barbie movie O yo if,
01:55
if those are, if you know,
01:56
if I'm her son,
01:57
I'm like I can't tell mom anything like I can't tell you
02:00
shit like yo, that wasn't,
02:02
you know that was for me and you mom now all the
02:05
girls hate me at school.
02:07
Low key like yo,
02:08
your mom don't like Barbie like yeah,
02:11
he's sitting alone in the cafeteria table because of his mom,
02:14
Colombian ma. Of course,
02:16
man, all Shakira,
02:17
this breaks my heart but on to the next story
