Posted Sunday March 9, 2014 4:50 PM GMT

She is gearing up for the release of her new studio album, and during promotions Shakira chatted with Billboard magazine.

During her interview, the "Hips Don't Lie" beauty opened up about her partner Gerard Pique's views on her steamy music videos and how she balances her busy career with her family time.

On Gerard's territorial attitude:
“He’s very territorial, and since he no longer lets me do videos with men, well, I have to do them with women. It’s more than implied in our relationship that I can’t do videos like I used to. It’s out of the question – which I like, by the way. I like that he protects his turf and he values me, in a way that the only person that he would ever let graze my thigh would be Rihanna.”

On staying fit:
“The gym is too demanding for someone who already has so many demands. I want to do something fun, and sports trim me down as much as the gym. Tennis is great because I spend an hour moving and concentrating on that little yellow ball. It’s great therapy.”

On balancing her schedules:
“Sometimes I yearn to stay at home with Gerard and Milan. For so long I decided to have what I have now, this family, that it’s logical for me to feel divided. A part of me – well, all of me – wants to be with them all the time and be a housewife. But there’s another part of me that still wants to make music and that’s still pleased with success. I won’t deny it. I know it sometimes sounds almost immoral to admit you like success, but I like it – I like it.”
