Shakira: I boss Jay Z about


Shakira “bosses” Jay Z about and insists he is only her manager but praised him for being relaxed.

The ‘Hips Don’t Lie’ hitmaker, who will release her self-titled 10th studio album on Monday, her first record since signing to Jay Z’s Roc Nation label, insists the ‘Holy Grail’ hitmaker does not tell her what to do.

She told The Sun newspaper: “He’s not my boss. He is my manager. In fact he says that I boss him around.

“But he is a great manager. He is very chilled, which is important.

“I think male managers are very relaxed and they know how to handle very stressful situations.

“The thing with women is we give so much importance to every little detail. Everything has the same level of importance. We lose perspective, or at least I do.

“The hairdresser didn’t turn up! Arrrrrgggghhh, what can I do? It’s the end of the world!

“Where’s men’s minds don’t work like that so they have to prioritise so that puts things in perspective.”

Shakira, 37, thinks women can be more “hysterical” when things go wrong and they “lose it” more than men.

She explained: “But Jay Z, in particular, keeps his cool, which is great for me because with a female artist’s career there is always some chaos.”

‘Shakira’ is her first English-language album since ‘She Wolf’ was released in 2009 and her first as a working mum, after giving birth to 14-month-old Milan, her son with FC Barcelona player Gerard Pique.

She added: “It’s exciting to be back. A bit scary and exciting at the same time and I honestly don’t know how I do it. Only we women can multitask in the way we do. Men would never be able to juggle in the same way.”
