Gerard Piqué Opens Up About His Turbulent Months
Gerard Piqué, Shakira’s ex and a popular football player, has recently revealed how he has been coping after going through a series of turbulent months, which involved criticism for his behavior post-separation from Shakira. In a recent interview with El País, Piqué has talked about how people perceive him and his response to those sentiments.
The negative media attention towards Piqué and the bad relationship he apparently had with Shakira has caused unrest among his fans. Piqué has been quick to defend himself, stating that he is doing what he wants in life and its perception by others should not affect him. He is not concerned with cleaning up his image and will always be true to himself. Piqué believes that only his close ones know him, and they are the only ones who matter.
Piqué avoids the subject of Shakira during his interviews but throws ‘darts’ her way. He gives the impression that he is protective of their children while taking subtle digs at the singer. In a recent interview, Piqué seemed to reproach Shakira when asked about her latest song, “BZRP Music Sessions #53.” He avoided the question but emphasized that parents have a responsibility to protect their children.
Gerard Piqué Responds to Shakira’s ‘BZRP Music Sessions #53’
Shakira recently released her new song, “BZRP Music Sessions #53,” which has stirred up controversy as she accuses Piqué of trading her for another woman. The song includes two phrases that refer to a downgrade in Piqué’s lifestyle: “You traded a Ferrari for a Twingo” and “You traded a Rolex for a Casio.”
In response, Piqué decided to use a Casio watch to announce that the brand would sponsor the soccer league Shakira founded, the Kings League. He was seen driving a Twingo shortly after, which sparked mixed reactions from social media users.
Although Piqué has not spoken directly about the ‘hit’ song, he implied during a conversation with Gerard Romero that the car he was driving did not belong to him. While some people supported him, others believed he agreed with Shakira.
Shakira recently celebrated the success of her new song at her residence, which adjoins that of her ex-in-laws. She shared a video of herself dancing with her friends, writing about how important it is to have people who support you in tough times.
