Shania Twain says there’s one subject she could not talk to Oprah Winfrey about. During an appearance on the “Table Manners with Jessie Ware and Lennie Ware” podcast, Shania says a dinner with Oprah took a turn when the subject of religion came up.
Shania says dining with Oprah was one of the “most memorable” dinners she had. “It was great to just sit and have real talks, but as soon as we started talking about religion, it all went sour,” she said, adding, “So, I said, ‘Let’s stop talking about religion.”
Shania says the problem was Oprah is “quite religions,” while Shania says she’s more “spiritual.”
“There was no room for debate, and I like to debate,” she said. “Canadians like to debate everything. So, I’m like, ‘Oh, OK. It’s time to change the subject.’”
- ONE MORE THING! Shania appears topless for the artwork for her latest single “Waking Up Dreaming,” and the whole thing was her idea. “I styled that photograph myself. It was all about taking off the bra, taking off the shirt, tying the shirt around my waist,” she tells People. “This is a statement of being comfortable in my own skin and just being really myself.” As for anyone who may criticize the cover, she notes, “You have to be strong. I never really get angry with criticism. You can’t please everybody, that’s normal.”
