Shakira looks red hot as she picks up eight awards at the 2023 Premios Juventud event

Shakira had all eyes on her while attending the 2023 Premios Juventud awards in San Juan, Puerto Rico, on Thursday.

The Whenever, Wherever hitmaker, 46, commanded attention in a fiery red mini dress that showed off her incredible figure.

The Colombian singer paired the red hot ensemble with matching sunglasses, and wore her honey tresses cascading down in waves.

The beauty, who skipped the red carpet, took home eight awards, including Best Pop/Urban Track.

Upon learning she would be taking home the most trophies of the night, the mother-of-two gushed on stage: ‘The best luck I’ve had is with my fans. You inspire me to be better and to never give up.’

To be honest, when I had self-doubt, you made me believe in myself again. When I feel fragile, you give me strength. You’ve protected me, you’ve been loyal. You celebrate my joy and are with me in my struggles. It’s because of you I want to be a better musician, a better person,’ she continued.

At one point during the night, she was seen hugging her sons Milan, ten, and Sasha, seven, who were in the audience.

Shakira was also honored with the Agent of Change Award along with singer Camila Cabello, 26.

As she accepted the honor, the Colombian powerhouse said: ‘We live in an ambiguous world, surrounded by good music, beauty, TikTok dances, filtered selfies.’

‘But there are realities that cannot be filtered or made up. There are places where people who are born poor die poor because they do not have the opportunity to receive a quality education.’

It is an imperfect world, but fortunately it is constantly changing. And that is a truth that cannot be wasted. When my 10-year-old son tells me with sadness that a friend of his would like to change his skin color because he doesn’t feel part of it or that someone else is being pushed aside because of his preferences.’

She went on to say as a mother, it is her responsibility to ‘show him that he doesn’t have to be quiet’ and that ‘he can ‘raise his hand’ and use his voice to ‘complain about that and everything else he disagrees with.’
