Arguably, country songstress Shania Twain is best known for carefully explaining to us what the best thing is about being a woman (CliffsNotes: it’s the prerogative to have a little fun) and being Canadian. But another thing you may know about Shania is that got done dirty by both her ex-husband Mutt Lange and ex-best friend back in 2008. Yeah, despite having co-written and sung the song that was used in every wedding dance from 1998-2003, she and Mutt did not, in fact, make it. Shania has since married and moved on, but people still wonder if the two cheating lovebirds are still together, still going strong? Shania went on Dax Shepard’s podcast Armchair Expert to answer the question and tell everyone she’s got a better husband!
Shania Twain recently released music for the first time in five years, and taking both the wig-filled video for that single, Waking Up Dreaming, and her looks at last night’s Grammys into account, I’d venture to say she’s hit the “fun sassy wigged auntie” season of her career. She wasn’t nominated for any awards this year, but she first hit the red carpet in a red wig, white pantsuit with black polka dots, and a matching big ass hat (perfect for peeing in); then presented the award for “Best Country Album” with a red wig again and a getup that reminded a lot of people of a character from the anime Chainsaw Man.
Since Disney has pissed off an army of bottom-feeding racist trolls by casting Halle Bailey as Ariel in the upcoming live-action The Little Mermaid movie, they figured why not further piss off the small-minded cretins by casting a Black lead in their small-screen ABC live-action/animated hybrid Beauty and the Beast: A 30th Celebration special? Oscar-winning musician, H.E.R., snagged the lead role of Belle in the production. But, since she’s a bookworm, the scalawags who are pissed about Ariel may not consider Belle sacred since books are their Kryptonite. While many other celebs have signed on, castle head-bitch-in-charge, Mrs. Potts, was yet-to-be-determined, but Variety reports that iconic country star Shania Twain is in final talks to take on the role of the self-righteous teapot who tells everyone how to live their lives but couldn’t even prevent Chip from getting chipped.
The 2020 CMT Music Awards were held last night and while it was mostly socially-distanced with stars appearing via video from all over the world, that doesn’t mean we don’t get to critique their fashion choices. There was a distanced carpet, and there were performances, including Noah Cyrus keeping the definition of elegance alive by looking like a Fredrick’s of Hollywood Kacey Musgraves.
It’s been a minute since we last checked in on Shania Twain, our reigning shady country queen and one-time maybe Trump supporter. And for good reason. Shania’s been busy making movies, like that one last year with John Travolta and his wig, and the upcoming Christian-themed biopic, I Still Believe, starring that hot ginger from Riverdale. But, fortunately, everybody’s favorite least-impressed Canadian took some time to sit down with Sunday TODAY and get into her struggles with Lyme Disease.
While, as Michael already pointed out, Prince’s eyes are probably still rolling in their grave after Usher gave him a tribute (still better than what Usher has given to people in the past) at last night’s Grammy Awards, there was one thing that Prince could be proud of. Prince’s fashion DNA was all over the red carpet, right down to the bare asscheeks. The men were having fun at the Grammys, outshining the women with looser expressions of gender and daring accessories. Let the girly-girls like Ariana Grande have their beautiful gowns. With the exception of the Jonas Brothers, the men of the red carpet took risks that paid dividends (the Jonas bros’ bronzed blazers with wives as accessories should file for fashion bankruptcy). Sorry ladies, its the guys time to shine. We already know what boobs look like.
