"You can't achieve anything in life without a small amount of sacrifice."

Shakira is a great and brilliant singer and songwriter who has given us songs like "Hips Don't Lie", "Beautiful Liar", "This Time for Africa", "Loca", and "Chantaje, and many more such gems.

Her music has been so influential that she has inspired people no less than Beyoncé, Rihanna, Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez, Katy Perry, Britney Spears, and many more -- no wonder she is called the Queen of Latin Music and is put in (by Sun newspaper) the list of 50 artists that will never be forgotten.

About Shakira's Real Height

The long and short of Shakira's height is that she isn't tall -- but she is well-proportioned and doesn't look short at all. Shakira used to be described as 5'3" tall but IMDb now lists her at 5'2" instead -- which is more like her real height. Which makes her closer in height to other female singers such as Ariana Grande (5'½"), Cardi B (5'1¼"), Lady Gaga (5'1½"), etc.

Anyway, as Kevin Hart has said: "Height is nothing -- personality is everything" and Shakira has a giant personality that looms large in the world of music.
