Shakira has revealed that her manager Jay Z is so relaxed she "bosses" him around.

The 37-year-old Hips Don't Lie singer is set to release her self-titled 10th studio album this Monday (March 24) – her first record since signing to Jay Z's Roc Nation label.

Speaking about working with Jay Z Shakira revealed to The Sun newspaper: ''He's not my boss. He is my manager. In fact he says that I boss him around.

''But he is a great manager. He is very chilled, which is important.

''I think male managers are very relaxed and they know how to handle very stressful situations.

''The thing with women is we give so much importance to every little detail. Everything has the same level of importance. We lose perspective, or at least I do.

''The hairdresser didn't turn up! Arrrrrgggghhh, what can I do? It's the end of the world!

''Where's men's minds don't work like that so they have to prioritise so that puts things in perspective.''

Mum-of-one Shakira, who is in a relationship with Spanish footballer Gerard Piqué, also told The Sun that she thinks that women can be more "hysterical" when things go wrong. 

She added:  "Jay Z, in particular, keeps his cool, which is great for me because with a female artist's career there is always some chaos.''
