Shania Twain Covers 'Redbook' June 2011

Shania Twain Covers 'Redbook' June 2011

Shania Twain graces the cover of Redbook magazine’s June 2011 issue, on newsstands Tuesday (May 17).

Here’s what the 45-year-old singer and star of Why Not? with Shania Twain had to share:

On betrayal: “Being betrayed is one of the most valuable lessons life can teach. Now that you are wise to the game, you have the tools to choose your friends more carefully and protect your inner circle from these predators. Wear your scars like a badge. Someone hurt you, you lived through it, and now you can talk about it without rage and revenge in your heart.”

On regaining her voice: “When my marriage broke down, I got so physically constricted that I couldn’t get any volume out at all. . . . I realized I couldn’t live without singing and had to do something about it. This is why I was like, ‘Just get it all out right now. Clean the pipes.’”

On how she knew husband Frederic Thiebaud was right for her: “I got to observe Fred going through the same thing I was, and I admired how he handled it. That is where I fell in love with him, because he was so exemplary in every way.” “He’s attentive, brighter than God should ever allow any one man to be, funny, romantic, and cute as heck. Most of all, he shows what he feels, and that’s a quality that could come in any shape or size and be admired—it just so happens that Fred has a very gorgeous shape. He’s too good to be true, only he’s real! Good for me, is all I can say, and I’m loving every minute of it.”

    I remember back in 1999, they were playing those cringe-making godawful songs of hers, “That Don’t Impress Me Much” and “Man! I Feel Like a Woman!” everywhere. At least, she disappeared for a while and has kept a low profile since unlike today’s singer-songwriters who are overexposed on a long-term basis. It would be good if she does some mainstream movies, however.

    I’m glad she was able to find someone worthwhile through what must have been a difficult process. She sounds like she really has a good heart and values. Betrayal is definitely a hard thing to deal with. I admire her take on it and how she’s handled it since.

    Very talented singer. Never cared for her songs. I am happy she was able to find love again and leave her scum ex in the dirt. Some men are just pigs and she deserves MUCH better.
