Shakira, who moved to Miami just last month after splitting from ex Gerard Pique, just won Billboard's first Woman of the Year honor at the inaugural Latin Women in Music gala where she made her appearance.
She made references to her ex during her acceptance speech for the prestigious award, per Billboard. “It’s true that when I felt most lost, music put me on the road back to myself,” she said, speaking to over 2,000 in attendance at the May 6 event. “But the most important lessons I learned from other women, and for them I wrote what I wrote and I sang what I sang. Because only a woman can love until she’s ripped apart; can speak with the most brutal honesty; can sing with anger; dance in ecstasy and be brought to tears with emotion. Only a woman can do that,” she said.
"This has been a year of seismic change in my life where I’ve felt more than ever and very personally what it is to be a woman. And what it means," she said to the crowd. "It’s been a year where I’ve realized we women are stronger than we think, braver than we believed, more independent than we were taught to be. Because what woman hasn’t, at some time in her life, forgotten herself because she’s seeking the attention and love of someone else?"
She continued, "But there comes a time in the life of every woman where she no longer depends on someone else to love and accept herself just as she is. A time when the search for someone else is replaced by the search for oneself. A time when the desire to be perfect is replaced by the desire to be authentic, and where finding someone who is faithful is less important than being faithful to ourselves."
The singer revealed on Instagram in April that she was relocating to Miami from Barcelona, where she was previously raising kids Sasha, 8, and Milan, 10, with her ex-partner Gerard Piqué, per PEOPLE. "I settled in Barcelona to give my sons stability, the same that we are now looking for in another corner of the world besides family, friends, and the sea. Today we started a new chapter in the search for happiness," she wrote.
