London: Columbian pop star Shakira says she is so obsessed by chocolate that she constantly dreamed of the sugary treat while she was on a diet recently.

The 33-year-old pop star admits she only realised how strong her cravings for chocolates were when she woke up tearful after dreaming of it while dieting to get in shape for a music video, Contactmusic reported.

"I love chocolate. I`m addicted to it. Do you know when I realised that? Shortly before we started shooting the video for `She Wolf`," Shakira said.

"I needed a whole month to get back into shape. I danced, worked out and had to stick to a strict diet – only fish, spinach and a specially-prepared dessert with tofu. For the first time in my life I was dreaming of chocolate and cake and always woke up with tears in my eyes," she added.

However, the `Hips Don`t Lie` singer made sure she made up for her deprivation as soon as filming the video was complete.

"When we finished shooting the video I went to a café in Los Angeles and had five pieces of chocolate cake in one go," she said.
