Shakira's Collaboration With Rihanna Explained! Colombian Singer's Beau Won't Let Her Make Videos With Men

Rihanna, Shakira, Can't Remember to Forget You YouTube

Attention all male singers. If you're hoping to star in a music video with Shakira one day, well, you're out of luck.

It seems the Colombian cutie's boyfriend, soccer star Gerard Piqué, doesn't exactly like the idea of his lady appearing on camera with the opposite sex.

"He's very territorial, and since he no longer lets me do videos with men, well, I have to do them with women," Shakira tells Billboard.

Which probably explains, in part, why the Voice coach wound up collaborating with Rihanna on the tune, "Can't Remember to Forget You." (Not to mention, the somewhat steamy video for the song, which finds the two women caressing each other.)

"It's more than implied in our relationship that I can't do videos like I used to. It's out of the question—which I like, by the way," Shakira adds. "I like that he protects his turf and he values me, in a way that the only person he would ever let graze my thigh would be Rihanna."

And clearly Shakira had no problem working with the Barbadian beauty.

"She's the sexiest woman on the planet," the "Hips Don't Lie" star told Glamour. "The chemistry was so good and so real. She taught me dance moves. She was a sweet teacher."
