    It was a great interview and Shakira is certainly a knowledgeable and inspiring interviewee! Viewers won’t see this but after the interview ends, she pulls her hair back into a high ponytail and with her sports vest on – she looks like she’s off for a run! Got to fit that exercise in when you can!!
