Shakira has given an interview with Rolling Stone, posted on their site. In the interview they talk about her new fragrance Elixir - she has a highly successful fragrance line in Europe and South America - they also talk about her philanthropic work (as always....), her new album and... A 2013 WORLD TOUR! (that she sorta confirms for 2013)
Why did you choose to release a new fragrance that, as you said, is more sensual and exotic? Do you feel more sensual at this point in your life?
I don't know that I would say I feel more sensual or exotic than before, but I'm definitely in a great place in my life, and I hope that translates in my work, both with the fragrance and the new music I'm working on.
How do you combine these two creative entities?
I don't really combine them, per se, but they're both an extension of me. As an artist, I tend to be very involved in all of the creative aspects of my career, so whether that's writing and producing a record or developing a scent, it usually speaks to where I'm at in my life and what I'm feeling at that moment.
With my career, I'd really just like to continue to grow as an artist, a songwriter and producer and hope that my music continues to allow me to tour the world and perform for my fans. That's probably my favorite part of my job.
Is there a particular artist and/or person that inspires you?
Right now I'm really inspired by dance music and what's going on in the DJ electronic world, but my roots are more rock & roll and folk – I've always drawn inspiration from Led Zeppelin, Nirvana, Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, amongst many others.
What would you hope people can take away from all of your creative endeavors?
I hope I can make my fans happy, make them dance, inspire them and accompany them.
Will you be touring anytime soon?
Yes, I'll likely tour next year. I don't like to stay off the road for too long.
What are you currently working on?
I'm currently working on my new album and hope to share some new music with everyone really soon, and it’s taking up just about all of my time!

Lotus is not easy for the public to digest. Its a indie record really that only true music lovers will like. Even the critics don't understand how good it is based on these reviews. They know nothing about music.
I just don't get why people want to make sense of the world. At the end of the day, we are all living on some random rock in the middle of a big black darkness which we know nothing about. It is pretty much a lost cause. Don't agonise over it...just enjoy life!
