Shakira Stays in Spain...but Not For Gerard Pique

Shakira is extending her lease on her Barcelona pad for a little while longer, but no one can guess how long she'll stay put because she is, after all, a gitana

The colombiana rented the former home of world class swimmer David Meca for an "indefinite period." The beautiful mansion, in the Bellaterra neighborhood of the coastal Spanish city, boasts a full gym, a lap pool and most importantly, complete peace and quiet—the home was a convent before it was converted for residential use. Whatever is drawing shakira to Barcelona, we're sure it has absolutely nothing to do with rumored love interest Gerard Pique, since both parties have vehemently insisted that they are "just friends".

Actually, we're not so sure, because the two were recently spotted out and about celebrating their birthdays together. Yup, both the pop star and the FC Barcelona defender turned a year older on February 2nd. Though the age difference is hard to spot, Shaki has ten years on the soccer star, who celebrated his 24th birthday. We'll let you do the math to figure out how old Shakira is.
