Shakira explains 'She Wolf' meaning
Shakira has explained the meaning behind her new single 'She Wolf'.

The 32-year old claimed that the song, which is currently at number four on the UK singles chart, is about women feeling empowered and being able to fully express themselves.

"'She Wolf' is the woman of our time," she told Radio 1. "The woman who knows what she wants and is free of prejudice and preconceived notions.

"She defends her deepest desires with teeth and claws like a wild animal."

The singer admitted that she used to spend hours attempting to master her trademark belly dancing moves.

"You just have to roll that belly, I used to practice by trying to flip a coin," she said. "But don't try that after eating.

"It's one of those moves I just thought of in the studio when we were shooting the video and it felt right. I assure you every muscle ached after that video."

Shakira releases new album She Wolf on October 12.
