Shania Twain is still covered in mud.
The Grammy-winning songstress opened up about the inspiration for her latest nude photoshoot in an interview with TalkShopLive.
“My truth is that as I get older, and I wish I had this truth when I was younger, I would rather be criticized by others for how I look or what I look like.” Try not to let it affect you too much.
Twain also opened up about the insecurities that plagued her teenage years, explaining that her current body confidence wasn’t always present.
“I was a very insecure woman…like, I was one of those teenagers who never wore a bikini on the beach,” she said. I didn’t do it when I was younger, so I’m going to do it now.I’m going to feel and show that I feel comfortable in my own skin.
“So what I did was do a photo shoot naked, just in the mud,” Twain continued. It was all a message to myself: share those anxieties and take off the skin of those anxieties.”
Now, Twain embraces his body and isn’t shy about the changes that come with aging.
“It started with repeating the message to myself: ‘OK, I’m fine with how I look. I’m fine with aging. I’m fine and I’m happy with myself.’ , OK, I can’t tell people that. I can’t tell that. I have to live it,” she said.
For Twain, living this truth sometimes includes going braless, as she did at the beginning of her career.
“When I made my first video, ‘What Made You Say That?’ This is the first album I recorded,” she explained. “I was braless in that video. The question is whether it should be a target.”
