Shakira reveals who REALLY wears the pants in her relationship

Shakira doesn't hold back when it comes to discussing her relationship with soccer star, Gerard Pique. The singer stirred up some controversy a few weeks ago when she said that her longtime boyfriend will only allow her to film music videos with women. But in a recent interview with Ocean Drive magazine, the mom to 1-year-old Milan clarified her statements and revealed who REALLY wears the pants in the relationship.

And the answer may surprise you! Check out what she had to say below.

In the interview, Shakira said that when it comes to power in the relationship, both she and Pique wear the pants. "I would say the balance of power is fairly equal," she told the magazine. "Relationships have to have a give and take if they're going to work in the long term." 

That answer might surprise some people, since her previous comments made it seem like Pique had the upper hand. But as Shaki puts it, "Gerard doesn't tell me what to do—we discuss everything as a couple, as I imagine most partners do. We have a beautiful relationship and one of mutual trust."

In fact, she was surprised to see that those comments were taken so seriously as they were meant "in a lighthearted, humorous way."

The truth, it's all too easy to take something a celeb says out of context or try to make their words more serious than they actually are. Only Shaki and Pique know what goes on between them and that's the way it should be. But according to her, they have a healthy and supportive relationship. And if she's happy, isn't that all that really matters? After all, let's be real here-- Shakira isn't the type to allow anyone to boss her around!
