Shakira attended university at UCLA in disguise after finishing the tour for her 2005 album ‘Oral Fixation Vol 2’, the Colombian popstar has revealed.
The singer took a short course in history over the summer at the Los Angeles-based university after her lengthy jaunt ended in May 2007 .
“It was such a long tour, I needed a break from me,” explained Shakira. “The universe is so broad, I cannot be at the centre of it. So I decided to go to the university and study history for a summer course, just to kind of switch gears, taste the student life.”
“I used to wear a cap and a big backpack, I looked like a boy,” she admitted. “I didn’t get recognised. Some people looked at me very suspiciously, a few people asked me, but I told them my name was Isabelle. I would go to university over and over again if I could.”
