I am shy about my body, says Shakira

The 32-year-old 'She Wolf' hitmaker said that she does not consider herself a sex symbol and prefers to keep her famed body under wraps when not performing, reported Contactmusic. "When I perform I feel free. But when I'm on the beach I don't run around topless or wobble with my hips. Perhaps it's difficult to understand but I'm kind of shy when it comes to my body," said Shakira.

But the blonde beauty who likes to keep a low profile, said that she has never thought of herself as a sex symbol. "I think the external appearance in show business is important and over the years I've discovered my assets. Honestly, I've never seen myself as a goddess or sex symbol," said Shakira who used to be overweight as a teenager.

The singer who is now comfortable flaunting her toned physique in revealing outfits, said that there was a time in her life when she suffered from self-loathing due to her looks.
"We all have our insecurities but I used to have more of those days in my twenties. I found nothing satisfied me and I just wanted to hide from the world. You should always make the most of what you've got and I think I've tried my entire life to figure it out," said Shakira.
