“I named them and they became very close to me. And then I couldn’t eat them. I was like, ‘Okay, if I cannot eat these chickens because they actually have names and they are my friends, I am not going to be able to eat any chicken again.’ So I became a vegetarian,” contactmusic.com quoted Shakira as saying. But she soon gave in to her cravings.

“I lasted for one month. I tried, I really tried. Yeah, I gave it a go,” she added.

Shakira is now a happy carnivore again, but says she didn’t kill her pet chickens.

“I didn’t last as a vegetarian, but I did not eat those chickens. I promise those chickens survived,” she said.
