    Shakira says Barbie movie 'emasculates' men

    “I love pop culture when it tries to empower women without stripping men of their ability to be men and protect and provide.< /p>

    “I believe in giving women all the tools and believing in that we can do all this without losing our essence, without losing our femininity. I think men have a purpose in society and women have another purpose.
