Shakira shows off her incredible abs in bikini video shoot

Shakira told us back in 2006 that her hips didn't lie - and boy, she wasn't kidding!

The musician stunned her 56 million followers on Instagram last week by uploading a video of herself in a pink bikini that she had designed herself.

Spinning around while grinning at the camera, the 42-year-old looked fit and happy as could be, and soon followed the footage with a picture of herself looking fabulous in the same swimwear.

Shakira stuns in a pink bikini:

"Ok last bathing suit pic for now 😜... Only one question: who wants me to design a bathing suit for you girls? Shak," she wrote in her caption.

The Colombian singer didn't have to ask twice; soon enough her Instagram post was inundated with comments from excitable fans, who showed appreciation for her video and picture, and agreed that she should design more bathing suits.

"No words existe [sic] to describe her," wrote @fortieryanick, while @ginnie_8a was equally in love, stating: "Summer BOD GOALS🙌🏼😍".

"WE STAN A NATURAL QUEEN!" added @j_a_a8.

The entertainer started her own beauty line, S by Shakira, in 2010 and released three successful fragrances including S by Shakira Eau Florale, Rock!, and Elixir. In addition, she has a line of body lotions and body sprays.

In a 2014 interview with the Independent, Shakira spoke out, stating her aim was to empower women and make them feel comfortable in their own bodies.

"I felt that any woman who is in control, who is in touch with her femininity and sensuality, is a woman that is empowered. Is a woman who is comfortable in her own skin. Which is so important as well," she told the outlet.

However, back in 2010, the Waka Waka songstress said that body positivity was something that took time, and admitted she had gone to therapy to overcome her own issues.

"I am just like all women – we're born to criticise ourselves," she said. "Therapy has helped me so much in every aspect of my life from body image to relationships. It's about understanding myself – sometimes I'll speak to my therapist for an hour a day, it has become my routine. I've become so much more comfortable with who I am and the body God has given me."
