Whenever Shakira is found she is probably hoping that no boar crosses her path and attacks again.
Shakira has worn several hats throughout his career, both literally and metaphorically. She is an international superstar, a loving mother and sometimes a potential target for wild boars to try and play with as well. Shakira recently encountered the invasive species in Spain, and luckily she survived to tell the story of this incredible encounter.
On a walk with her Milan, 8 year old son in Barcelona, Shakira was suddenly confronted by a couple of wild boars, who swarmed and stole her bag. As the Grammy winner shared in her Instagram Stories (via BBC) the boars retreated with her bag into the woods, but Shakira was able to retrieve it, along with her phone, in order to update her followers on the really savage affair.
Fortunately Shakira and her son didn’t look any more worn after the incident, but the bag wasn’t so lucky, indicating how dangerous things might have been under other circumstances. Her initial video showed the bag with several tears in it as if the boars had torn it apart with their teeth. It’s such a shame to lose a bag to rogue boars, although something tells me that Shakira will be able to replace it more easily than she could replace the body parts that those boards might have chewed on.
While it’s quite shocking that something as random as this could happen to anyone who lives in areas without sporadic assaults from wild boar, these kinds of attacks aren’t that rare in some parts of the world. Wild boars are one of the most invasive species on the planet and can damage cars, homes, and sometimes handbags. Animals’ penchant for destruction doesn’t really care how many albums someone has sold around the world.
An admittedly silly downside to this story is that fans couldn’t see the singer “She Wolf” hunting those boars to see how deep she ventured into the woods to retrieve her things. Honestly, I’m a little shocked that she even bothered to venture after the bag. she mustn’t have seen what happened to Robert Baratheon in Game Of Thrones. It’s one thing to lose a bag to the boars. It’s another to lose your life!
While I wish it were under better circumstances, it’s always good to see Shakira actively being a badass. It’s been years since she released a new album, but maybe this moment could lead to a creative spark and a new song or two. It might be a little optimistic to assume, but even if she doesn’t drop new single “Boars Ate My Lipstick”, it’s likely going to be a bizarre story that fans will remember for years to come.
While we talk about Shakira’s quirky stories, keep rolling with the times when it looked like her Super Bowl performance outfit was inspired by her Zootopia character.
