``I have always been attracted to writing
music. I wrote my first song, My Dark Glasses, when I
was eight. It wasn't anything profound. At the age of
eight what can you write about - the devaluation of
the peso?
``I do not think I am ambitious. I was just following
my dreams and when I got my first record deal they
started to crystalise. I had this inner voice telling
me it was what I had to do.'

overnight I feel as though I have been prepared for
all the attention I am getting. Now that this is all
starting to happen for me around the world it makes me
feel that everything has been worthwhile. "

talented," Shakira says. "Yesterday on the plane,

when Shakira travels, her parents often accompany her.
"That I have in common with Britney, too. That, and
the hair," she says, laughing and pointing to her dyed
blond tresses.shakira on britney
