Shakira just wants to ride her bicycle, and for people to stop going through her trash.  

The Colombian star recently returned to her hometown of Barranquilla, Colombia, to shoot a music video with Carlos Vives for their upcoming single "La Bicicleta" (The Bicycle). The singer spoke at a press conference on Saturday, towards the end of her four-day visit to the South American country, where she was forced to make two things very clear.

"For now there is no plan for a wedding nor am I pregnant," she said, when asked about whether she intended to marry beau and Spanish soccer star Gerard Piqué, according to EFE. "We're very happy the way we are, and for now there are no plans for marriage."

Shakira also took the time to call out some unwelcome guests who've been snooping around her home to confirm rumors that she may be pregnant with her third child.  

"And because I have paparazzi at my door going through the garbage to see if they can find any proof of pregnancy, let me make it clear: I'm not pregnant, so they can go home and wash their little hands," Shaki told the press.

The songstress made quite a splash during her visit to the coast of Colombia, she and Vives rode bicycles in the streets of their respective hometowns, Barranquilla and Santa Marta, as dozens of fans lined up for a peek at the superstars. 

Dozens of fans showed up to watch the two Colombian singers ride their bicycles.

Both artists shared photos of their bike adventures from their social media accounts. 

"I've always dreamt of writing, producing and recording a song with Shakira so that together we can show our Colombia to the world," Vives told Billboard on May 5. "She has taken our country's music to unimaginable heights, and finally being able to collaborate with her is a realization of this dream."

The trip ended on a happy note as Shakira and Vives were both serenaded to his iconic song "El Amor De Mi Tierra" (The Love of My Country), in a video that he shared on Twitter. In the caption he wrote the little party was for Shakira, so she "never forgets the love of her country."
