Colombian popstar Shakira is smitten with her short legs and says she is proud of her petite figure.
The She-Wolf hitmaker insists she doesn't care if people criticise her for flashing her flesh as the singer's short legs take her places, Daily Mirror reported.
"I've grown as a woman and if I want to show my legs in a video, does that make me less of a thinking person? I don't think so. I'm actually very proud of my short legs. They take me to places. Actually when you're short, people feel pity for you, so you can get away with a lot more stuff. If I was tall I'd be in big trouble," Shakira said.
The 32-year-old star who sizzles in the music video for her latest track Did It Again, was also forced to work really hard to get her body toned for the act.
"I did gymnastics when I was 12, so I guess some of that flexibility remains in my muscles. But I did work out for a whole month, mostly to reshape my body. I was never very disciplined about fitness. Now I'm starting to get more aware," Shakira added.
