Shakira // November 2009 Rollingstone Magazine

Shakira and her chi-chi’s are front and center on the cover of the November 2009 issue of Rollingstone Magazine. And the 32-year-old singer says she’s ready to make some babies now she’s sold over 50 millions records and racked in over $100 million in doing so. At this stage in the game, the Colombian entertainer is on the verge of releasing her third English album She Wolf and now she’s ready to “reproduce.”

In Rolling Stone’s new issue, on stands today, Shakira tells Vanessa Grigoriadis about the pressures of becoming a true superstar in the U.S. now so she can indulge a “physical calling” soon: “My body feels like it is asking to reproduce,” she says, revealing that a baby could be in her post-She Wolf future.

To meet that goal, Shakira hit the studio hard for She Wolf, and gave Rolling Stone an up-close look at her coffee-fueled sessions at the Bahamas’ Compass Point Studios, a location she chose specifically for its rock & roll cred. “I am such a huge fan of Bob Marley, the Cure and AC/DC, and when I heard about this legendary studio where all of them recorded, I knew I had to be here,” she says.

Shakira also talks about Lil Wayne being on her new song, why she refuses to marry her boyfriend of nine years and more in the latest issue of RS, on stands now!
