Tearful Shakira battles addiction

It’s surprising svelte ‘Hips Don’t Lie’ singer Shakira has such “small and humble” hips (and thighs and belly etc) after the revelation she’s “addicted” to chocolate.

The Colombian chart-topper confesses, “I love chocolate. I’m addicted to it. Do you know when I realised that? Shortly before we started shooting the video for ‘She Wolf’. I needed a whole month to get back into shape.

“I danced, worked out and had to stick to a strict diet – only fish, spinach and a specially prepared dessert with tofu. For the first time in my life, I was dreaming of chocolate and cake. I always woke up with tears in my eyes.”

But the crying didn’t last long. Shakira continues, “When we finished shooting the video, I went to a café in Los Angeles and had five pieces of chocolate cake in one go!” We’d love to have seen the petite singer ‘She Wolf’-ing that down!
