After leaving Spain, Shakira has settled quite well in Miami. Living in Florida has its perks, as the singer can enjoy glimpses of various sports teams the city hosts. Just days ago, she witnessed Lionel Messi in action for Inter Miami. Prior to this, she had been spotted a couple of times with her kids witnessing the Heat in action.

Consequently, her constant outing became a question for the interviewer of the Billboards magazine. The interviewer pointed out to the “Waka Waka” singer that no one knew Shakira was “such a social butterfly.” Subsequently, the singer answered, “Me either! I didn’t know it because I really was lazy about going out [before]. My favorite outfit is my PJs. But my kids are big Miami Heat fans.”
