The anecdotes with Shakira that Jaime Bayly remembered

with the title Last night I dreamed of Shakirathe journalist and television host recalled what happened between them when they were young and, if they had accepted the invitation of the Colombian artist, they would probably have children today.
“I met her when she came to Miami and she didn’t know how to speak English; when she lived in an apartment on the beach and drove a red convertible; when she wanted to conquer the world with that miraculous voice that came from centuries of blood spilled in Lebanese lands and was intermingled with the poetic tear of being Colombian and living leaning into the abyss, looking curiously and wondering if she would fly like a butterfly, if she jumped with The open arms; when she lived, as many Colombians lived, bewitched by the temptation of the abyss, singing, painting or writing on the very edge of the cliff, ”Bayly wrote.

The journalist added that he will never forget the way the Colombian singer saw him more than two decades ago.
“No one had looked at me the way Shakira looked at me that night on television, and no one would look at me like that again, not even her, who, twenty-five years later, already knows very well that I was not worth that look of fire, of incendiary promises, of poison and honey, those luminous feline eyes that burned the entrails and made the imagination dance,” he added.
Bayly also revealed that Shakira invited him to the movies to see titanicbut he rejected her because he was married.
“Shakira, brave as always, who called me one day and timidly told me that she was inviting me to the movies to see titanic, in those days when we still went to the movies. And I, a coward, trying to avoid my own shipwreck, that her marriage to Cassandra would collapse… I told the beautiful immortal singer that I couldn’t go to the movies with her. She never called me again. She never looked at me like that night again… If I had had the slightest courage to go to the movies with her… maybe today we would be together, we would have children and I don’t know if we would be happy, “added Bayly.
