Shakira on the Male Judges on 'The Voice': 'I've Treated the Boys With Mercy'

(Courtesy Elle) Shakira covers the July issue of Elle magazine

The July issue of Elle magazine doesn't hit newsstands until June 25th, but we have a sneaky peek at the cover story—featuring Colombian singer and The Voice judge (she's so funny on the show!) Shakira. Check out some of the best bits from the interview—wherein she dishes on being a mom and her relationship with Gerard Pique.

On the other coaches on The Voice: "In general, I think I've treated the boys with mercy."

On her relationship with Spanish soccer player Gerard Pique: "He has his own world and that's actually one of the healthiest things about the relationship. I know that he's the one person who is with me not because of any interest other than the love that unites us. There's nothing I can offer him beyond my womanhood—does that word exist in English?"

On being a new mom: "I'm still trying to figure it out. And I have a feeling I will try to do the same for the rest of my life. Some people put it like it's very idyllic, some people put it like it's a torturing experience, but it's not quite one thing or the other. It's like life—it comes with everything."
