Shakira makes a comeback at MTV VMAs, receives video vanguard award amidst personal changes.

Shakira’s journey this year has been eventful, marked by her split with Gerard Pique and finding a new lover as she revamps her life.

Her comeback was highlighted at the MTV VMAs, where she took to the stage with her powerhouse energy for the first time in 17 years. Not only did Shakira win hearts with her 10-minute medley performance, including hits like “Hips Don’t Lie” and “TQG,” but she also received the prestigious Video Vanguard Award.

In an emotional speech, Shakira thanked her fans, saying, “Thank you so much for being my army and helping me fight all my battles.”

Last year in June, the 46-year-old pop star separated from her boyfriend of 11 years, Gerard Pique, with whom she shares two sons. Reports surfaced that the former soccer player cheated on Shakira with his current girlfriend, Clara Chia Marti.

A source confirmed to US Weekly, “Shakira’s lowest point was finding out Gerard cheated on her when her dad was in the ICU.”

Now, multiple sources have revealed that Shakira is romantically involved with NBA star Jimmy Butler. “It’s a new chapter for Shakira, and she is feeling better than ever.”

Shakira was first spotted with Jimmy in July. A source told US Weekly, “They’re growing closer every day, and Shakira appreciates how he takes the lead in the relationship.
