    Shakira lost an entire album when her suitcase disappeared from an airport

    The 47-year-old Columbian pop star had written enough lyrics to comprise her fourth album in the 1990s and kept it all in one bag but when the suitcase failed to arrive at an airport, she lost the whole thing and was forced to start from scratch


    Speaking on 'The Hot Ones' YouTube series, she said: "When I was like, 21, I had written a whole body of work. And it got lost at an airport in Bogota. I had all my lyrics in my dad's briefcase because I used to travel with my parents back in the day. And I think that it just just disappeared at the airport.

    "So that's why I named out album 'Where are the Thieves? ' After that story, I had to reconstruct all of the lyrics in my head. When I was able to, like after a great deal of effort."

    But the 'Objection' hitmaker doesn't think she was the target of a malicious attack and to this day believes she was just put in an "unfortunate" situation at the time, even though it was "so painful" to go through then.

    She said: "I wasn't targeted specifically. I know. I think just you know, the bag just disappeared. The suitcase disappeared with my lyrics. I was unfortunate. It was so painful."

    Meanwhile, Shakira has Milan, 11, and nine-year-old Sasha with ex-boyfriend Gerard Pique and recently revealed that she told them that her voice is "so much better" now than when she first hit the music scene.

    Now, she has explained that in those days she used to "overdo" the famous cries that are heard in her hit song 'Whenever, Wherever' and noticed that her vocals changed after each of her pregnancies.

    She said: "I think I used to overdo the cries in my voice, the le ro le lo le lo. I think it was exaggerated. A little bit rogue. Yeah. Too much Shakira. Yeah. And I noticed that after my pregnancies, my voice gets thicker, more rounded, more full. Also, my choices are more mature. I have evolved as a as a woman as a as a person. My intellect has evolved."
