Shakira Cancels Latin GRAMMYs and AMAs Performances Citing 'Personal Matters'

Our thoughts are with you, Shakira!

The 39-year-old singer has canceled her scheduled performances for the upcoming Latin GRAMMYs and American Music Awards this month simply citing “personal matters,” without elaboration, in a note to her fans.

“Due to personal matters, I won’t be able to travel to Las Vegas and LA to attend the @LatinGRAMMYs or the @AMAs this year,” she tweeted on Monday. “I will be accompanying @carlosvives in spirit @LatinGRAMMYs, celebrating this incredible year that we’ve shared together with #LaBicicleta.”

Shakira has been hard at work on new music throughout 2016, teaming up with fellow Colombian artist Carlos Vives for a track titled “La Bicicleta” in May. The song is up for Record of the Year and Song of the Year at the upcoming Latin GRAMMYs.

A rep for Shakira had no additional comment about the singer’s current circumstances.

Also earlier this year, the mom of two lent her voice to Disney’s animated hit,¬†Zootopia, playing the adorable pop star Gazelle!

“We wanted to make Gazelle the character that I’m interpreting a little bit more similar to me,” the “Hips Don’t Lie” singer explained. “And so they asked me what I thought it should have and I said, ‘Put some meat on the bones, you know? Poor girl, she needs some hips.’”
