Shania Twain will have chosen Donald Trump had she been able to vote during the 2016 U.S. elections.
Yes, regardless of the profanity-laced tirades, scandals, and eyebrow-raising statements of the elected official, the 52-year-old Canadian singer will still choose Trump over others for presidency, saying she prefers transparent and honest official, which Twain revealed in an interview with The Guardian. It showed her conservatism that is also supported by her beliefs in family dynamics.
"I would have voted for him because, even though he was offensive, he seemed honest," Twain admitted.
She further reiterated that she just doesn't want "bullsh*t" and that the decision to vote for Trump was because of "a feeling that it was transparent." Twain explained that politics has already a reputation of the opposite of transparent.
It wasn't the only thing she talked about. Many fans might be wondering why Twain suddenly disappeared from limelight in the 2000s, despite her hits and successes at the time. The "Come On Over" singer suffered after being bitten by a tick and later on contracting Lyme disease.
Twain was a country singer that turned into a rocker, thanks to her then producer and now ex-husband Robert "Mutt" Lange, who also worked with infamous AC/DC and Def Leppard. Her husband ended up cheating on her with her best friend, Marie-Anne Thiebaud, which became a controversial fallout for the two.
Twain then went on to be with Thiebaud's husband, Frederic. However, the singer seemed to hint she was not over the nasty event of her life, saying that her dreams entailed her doing bad things to her former friend.
It was during her successful transition when fate decided to take a sharp turn. Worse, it took a toll on her voice, her heaven-sent gift and talent adored by the audience.
The problem is not one that could be treated easily or one that resulted in cancellation of several performances and concerts. No. It was something bigger, and Twain had to have a 15-year rest to be able to come back to the spotlight again.
"I was too embarrassed to tell anybody that I couldn't sing. For a long time, I didn't even know why I couldn't sing," she confessed.
The "From This Moment' singer explained that she wanted a break from the business when her bundle of joy with Lange came in 2001, named Eja. However, a more than a decade away from the spotlight was too much. Of late, she had just undergone laryngoplasty, which had left a scar on her neck.
