The Columbian singer does not let her own kids listen to the songs she has sang

Shakira has some strict rules related to which kind of music her sons can enjoy at home.

The Columbian singer does not let her own kids listen to the songs she has sang. 

"I don’t make them listen to my music," admitted Shakira to Entertainment Tonight. "I try to avoid playing my own music in my house, in my own environment."

"I try to give them as much normalcy as I can," continued the pop icon, who has been in a relationship with Spanish footballer Gerard Piqué since 2011.

"I can’t deny they can’t escape the reality that I’m a public person, as well as their dad. But we try to provide as much normalcy as we can, and live really as very simple people," Shakira added. 

Regarding Piqué, the singer said he isn't much of a help when it comes to critiquing her songs. 

"He doesn’t understand videos very well," added the singer. "He’s like, 'OK, what are videos for? I don’t understand! It has nothing to do with the song!' I’m like, 'OK, you know what, let’s not discuss this right now!'"
