Shania decided to beautifully put an end to it by getting naked for her latest album. The fans were delighted
The recent release of Shania Twain’s Netflix documentary, Not Just a Girl, opened a floodgate to the newest—and possibly most personal—leg of her career. The country-pop sensation recently announced the impending arrival of her latest album, Queen of Me, along with an accompanying tour. And as the title implies, the record is all about self-love, which is why Shania posed nude in the mud for its artwork.
At 57, the singer wants this album to represent her conquering all the things she was too insecure to do when she was younger. It may be hard to believe considering her high-profile past, but Shania is more comfortable in her skin now than ever.
“I was very insecure woman, girl….I was one of those teenagers that would never wear a bikini at the beach, for example,” she recently told TalkShopLive. “So I’m saying, well, the heck with that. 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.”
That manifested, partly, as Shania’s muddy photo shoot. She hasn’t shared the photos, but a few album teasers show her bare-skinned behind a horse and wearing a mostly opened button-down shirt. Just because the shots look effortless, though, doesn’t mean they were.
