The 'Hips Don't Lie' star says the pair text each other a lot to keep in touch.

Shakira has opened up about her friendship with Rihanna and insists the 'What Now' singer is still just the "girl next door" type.

"She is still the girl next door, approachable and humble," Shakira revealed in The Sun On Sunday at the weekend. "We are friends and text each other, but our lives are in different geographic places.

"She's quite a busy woman and so am I," the 'Hips Don't Lie' singer added.
