Shakira And Her Sons Think Barbie Movie Is Emasculating


Shakira has shared her and her sons' thoughts about the Barbie movie, which came out last summer.

During a recent interview with Allure magazine, where Shakira graces the cover, she explained, "My sons absolutely hated it. They felt that it was emasculating. And I agree, to a certain extent. I'm raising two boys. I want 'em to feel powerful too [while] respecting women. I like pop culture when it attempts to empower women without robbing men of their possibility to be men, to also protect and provide."

She went on to say, "I believe in giving women all the tools and the trust that we can do it all without losing our essence, without losing our femininity. I think that men have a purpose in society and women have another purpose as well. We complement each other, and that complement should not be lost."
