Shakira Talks About Britney In Cosas Magazine


I always thought we were both completely different artists. It's like comparing Miro to Dali. I respect her a lot, she's very professional in what she does and she's earned all the fame and success she has. She's decidely a very talented and hard working woman, a great woman from the entertainment business, but I believe that what she does, and what I do are two very different things. People have compared me to other singers, like Alanis Morissette and Celine Dion, for example. Maybe we all have something in common. It's probably very normal at the beginning, when people aren't too familiarized with what you're trying to do, they place you in a category until they finally know you. I'm sure that people listen to my music and read my lyrics and know who I am, and where I come from, what my motivations ares and what I'm made of. Those who simply see me on tv shaking my hips, maybe believe that's what I do for a living, but that's not the case. My job has many dimensions: writing songs, producing them, arragements etc.
