Celebrity Body Types: Shakira (Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll, AKA “Queen of Latin Music”)
The Four Body Types Scientific Identification: Body Type One, BT1
Genetically Underdeveloped Vertebrae (Muscles/Muscle Mass): None/0
Date of Birth: February 2, 1977
Age: 46 (as of 2023)
Unscientific/Nonsense Body Types Rough Correlations: Endomorph, Kibbe/Soft Natural, Hormone/Ovary
Celebrity Shakira shows off her Body Type One (BT1) shape figure/physique during her vacation with her friends and family including her ex-partner Gerard Piqué. The candid images reveal no obvious signs of skinny fat (cellulite, thin fat, loose skin, saggy skin, crepey skin, normal weight obesity) anywhere on her body, even after giving birth to two kids. The full development of her vertebra (posture) and muscles/muscle mass is currently not in debate.
Science recognizes that one pound of muscle burns six calories daily, but one pound of fat/skinny fat only burns two to three calories. Which directly affects metabolism (the more skinny fat and fat, the slower the metabolism). Having so many developed vertebrae, muscles, and muscle mass assists greatly in terms of metabolism/metabolic rate (BMR), including aging gracefully.
Genetics/genes/DNA are important, but diet, exercise, metabolism, BMI, and lifestyle also matter. It will be interesting to see how well Shakira maintains her body shape figure/physique as she continues to age. Is she really a Body Type Two (BT2) with a slightly underdeveloped sacrum vertebra?
Shakira Figure/Shape – BT1
Grammy Award-winning and Emmy Award-nominated superstar singer and songwriter Shakira displays her Body Type One shape/figure while taking time off. Her music career began at the age of 13, signing with Sony Music Colombia. She released her first two albums Magia in 1991 and Peligro in 1993, both of which were commercial failures (the albums eventually were pulled from release and are no longer considered official albums but only promotional).
In 1995, after her regional hit single ¿Dónde Estás Corazón, she recorded her third international debut studio album Pies Descalzos, catapulting her to stardom in Hispanic countries while finally breaking through to U.S. listeners. It reached number five on the U.S. Billboard Top Latin Albums chart. As well, it spawned six hit U.S. Latin chart singles including Estoy Aquí (reached number two), ¿Dónde Estás Corazón? (reached number five, 1999 Grammy Award-nominated for Best Latin Rock/Alternative Performance), Sueños Blancos (reached number 11), Un Poco de Amor (reached number six), Antología (reached number 15), and Se Quiere, Se Mata (reached number eight). The album eventually achieved Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) certified platinum status.

To date, she has estimated sales of 85 million records worldwide from 11 studio albums, 5 live albums, 5 compilation albums, 62 music videos, and 81 singles, making her the highest-selling Colombian artist and the best-selling female Latin artist of all time. She has won three Grammy Awards including MTV Unplugged for Best Latin Pop Album in 2001, Fijación Oral Vol. 1 for Best Latin Rock/Alternative Album in 2006, and El Dorado for Best Latin Pop Album in 2018. Moreover, she currently holds nineteen (19) Guinness World Records.
Expanding into television in 1994, she starred in the Colombian TV series The Oasis. Since then, she has made cameo appearances on Taina (2002, Nickelodeon), Ugly Betty (2007, ABC), Wizards of Waverly Place (Disney Channel, 2010), Dora and Friends: Into the City (2011, Nickelodeon), The Voice (2013-14, NBC), The Disney Family Singalong: Volume II (2020, Disney Channel), Dancing With Myself (2022, NBC, executive producer), and Zootopia+ (2022, Disney), no less. In 2020, she was nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award for her performance in the Super Bowl LIV Halftime Show Starring Jennifer Lopez and Shakira in the category Outstanding Variety Special (Live). She also won an ESPY Award for Waka Waka (This Time for Africa) with Freshlyground for Best Song in 2011. Her movie credits include Zootopia (2016, voice).
Businesswoman Shakira Body Shape
As a businesswoman, in 2010 she started her own beauty line called S by Shakira, including the perfumes S by Shakira and S by Shakira Eau Florale along with lotions and body sprays. So far, she has released 30 fragrances, not counting deluxe editions. In terms of philanthropy, she founded the Pies Descalzos Foundation (Barefoot Foundation) in 1997 and over the years has focused her attention on Latin America in Solidarity Action (early childhood public policies) and as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, to name a few. Shakira’s demanding live concert responsibilities likely help with maintaining her body shape figure by increasing her metabolic rate thus burning more calories to keep excess fat weight at bay. She has been romantically linked to Antonio de la Rúa and Osvaldo Rios.
Her net worth is estimated to be $300 million. You can catch her on social media including Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. See more businesswoman, Hollywood executive producer & actress, and superstar singer & songwriting musician Shakira celebrity Body Type One (BT1) photos on Google.
