Shania Twain is in her fearless era.
The country-pop diva talked about embracing menopause and why she’s proud to be flaunting more than ever in an interview with the New York Post’s Alexa magazine published Wednesday.
Twain — a five-time Grammy winner with a number of hits to her name, including “That Don’t Impress Me Much” and “Man! I Feel Like a Woman!” — described the experience as a rewarding challenge.
“I think menopause was a very good thing for me because there were a lot more things changing in everything about me physically that I had to very quickly come to terms with,” Twain, 58, said.
“Menopause taught me to quickly say, ‘You know, it may only get worse. Just love yourself. Get over your insecurities – they are holding you back. She explained.
“I always sing about fearlessness and all that. When I write, I’m there. However, I don’t live it as I write it. I’m more fierce than I ever was because I really demanded it about myself. I’m more fierce than I ever was because I really demanded it about myself.”
That new outlook inspired Twain to bare her soul, and more, for the cover of her single “Waking Up Dreaming,” which came out last year.
Talking about her topless, Western-themed photo shoot, she said: “I think I needed to capture where I am right now, because it’s a moment that I want to remember.”
“So I just had to be brave about it, to own it,” she said. She said that she had to be brave and own it. I am exactly the way I should. I’m exactly the way I should act at my age. It’s fine. It’s all good.” It’s good.”
The Canadian song-writer struck a similar note around the release of the song last year.
“I am a women in my late fifties, and I do not need to hide behind clothes,” she said to People magazine. I can’t tell you how great it felt to shoot naked.” “I don’t even feel emotional about it, I just feel fine about it.” “It’s liberating.”
