Shania Twain has finally revealed why she name drops Brad Pitt in one of her biggest hits “That Don’t Impress Me Much.” When Brad was younger, he was very well-known for his pretty boy status and good looks, which is exactly where the inspiration for the song came from.
“I remember I had a girlfriend visiting me and it was near Christmas and we were baking cookies. I was writing this album and there was a scandal where there were naked photos of him [in Playgirl magazine]. And this was like all the rage,” the star explained during a press conference with UMG.
She continued: “I just thought 'I don't know what all the fuss is about.' I'm like, well that don't impress me much, I mean what is all the fuss. We see people naked every day. That's really what I thought. I wasn't picking on Brad Pitt. But that was just the association in that moment and things we make fusses about and whatever. Of course, it could have been any gorgeous guy.”
This juicy information comes just in time for her comeback tour, hitting North America in 2018. The singer delighted fans when she made the announcement on Thursday (Aug 17) following an appearance on The Tonight Show. The “Come On Over” singer rocked the late night stage in a stunning black sequined jumpsuit while performing her new track, “Swinging with My Eyes Closed” off of her upcoming album NOW.
The SHANIA NOW tour kicks off on May 3 in Tacoma, Washington, and will see the singer make stops in Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Hamilton, Ottawa, London and Quebec City. Tickets to see the Canadian country queen go on sale Aug 23.
