Shakira Says BARBIE “Was Emasculating” and That She Likes Pop Culture “That Empowers Women Without Robbing Men of Their Possibility to Be Men” — GeekTyrant

Greta Gerwig’s Barbie movie got a lot of love from audiences, and there are a ton of people who enjoyed the movie. But, not everyone was on board with it and it had its fair share of backlash. Well, that backlash continues with Shakira.

During an interview with Allure magazine, the music icon was asked about her thoughts on the Barbie movie and she didn’t hold back on her thoughts, saying: “My sons absolutely hated it. They felt that it was emasculating. And I agree, to a certain extent.”

She went on to explain: “I’m raising two boys. I want ’em to feel powerful too [while] respecting women. I like pop culture when it attempts to empower women without robbing men of their possibility to be men, to also protect and provide. I believe in giving women all the tools and the trust that we can do it all without losing our essence, without losing our femininity.”

The singer expanded on her thoughts saying: “I think that men have a purpose in society and women have another purpose as well. We complement each other, and that complement should not be lost.”

Shakira was then asked: “Just because a woman can do it all doesn’t mean she should?” To which she responded: “Why not share the load with people who deserve to carry it, who must carry it as well?”

Some of the other things that people have said about it come from podcaster Matt Walsh who said it is “the most aggressively anti-man, feminist propaganda fest ever put to film.” Bill Maher also slammed the film as “man-hating.”

Gerwig previously weighed in on the film’s backlash, saying: “Certainly, there’s a lot of passion. My hope for the movie is that it’s an invitation for everybody to be part of the party and let go of the things that aren’t necessarily serving us as either women or men. I hope that in all of that passion, if they see it or engage with it, it can give them some of the relief that it gave other people.”
