Singer Shakira says she is trying to give her children a normal childhood and that she avoids playing her own music.
“I don’t make (my kids) listen to my music. I try to avoid playing my own music in my house. I try to give them as much normalcy as I can,” Shakira told ET Canada, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
The 44-year-old singer says she cannot deny the fact that she is a “public person”.
She added: “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 had recently written a powerful essay about child separation to shine a light on the children who have been separated from their parents and detained at the US border.
She wrote: “I am the daughter of a New Yorker who was born to Lebanese immigrants amidst the great economic depression of the 1930s, immigrants who, thanks to their entry into the US, were able to build a solid foundation for themselves and their family before they finally settled in Colombia, where I was born and grew up.
