Shania Twain claims that flaunting her “new body” as she gets older has been “liberating.” The 57-year-old was open about how removing her top for the “Waking Up Dreaming” cover helped her overcome long-standing body image concerns. Twain posed for the cover image while wearing a cowboy hat and a pair of vibrant pointy-toe boots, concealing her naked chest with her arms.
The country-pop icon is no stranger to forging her path in the music business, despite the fact that the image upset some fans. Twain continued, vowing not to “regress” to her timid self after noticing her “courage” was “dulling.” However, many may not understand where Shania comes from and why she owns her self-confidence with every chance she gets. Shania revealed in a recent interview that she was “ashamed” of being a woman due to the sexual abuse she suffered at the hands of her stepfather.
The trauma was so disturbing that she tried to flatten her breasts as a developing child. But Shania Twain claimed that by her mid-20s, she had reclaimed the self-assurance of being a woman that is essential to her music. Moreover, she stated that fashion has also assisted her in embracing her femininity.
