Hey, if you look that damn good at 57, why wouldn’t you?
She’s obviously just as stunning as ever, but added that it was more so about the message and meaning behind doing that than the actual photo itself:
“Repeating the message to myself was the beginning, just saying, ‘OK, I’m fine with the way I look, I’m fine aging, I’m fine and comfortable with myself.’
And this was the final step of saying, ‘I can’t just tell people that. I can’t just say it. I’ve got to live it.'”
Shania also mentioned that she actually went bra-less in the music video for her aforementioned first single, but that it was almost an easier decision back then because she still felt like everything looked the way it was “supposed to” by society’s standards.
Now, she’s fully confident in getting older and all the wisdom and experience that comes along with it, so she’s trying to live it out and embrace every part of that:
“When I did my very first video, ‘What Made You Say That?’ this is the very, very first album I ever recorded. I was bra-less in that video.
But as the young woman that I was, it seemed fine because I was perkier. So my message is, why should it be offensive just because I’m older?”
Amen to that, Shania…
That’s why she’s a country queen, still inspiring women (and men) all over the world to be exactly who they are and embrace it.
The massive trek will start in Spokane, Washington in April, and finish up in the UK in September, with Hailey Whitters, Breland, Lindsay Ell, Kelsea Ballerini, Mickey Guyton, Priscilla Block and Robyn Ottolini rotating different dates as openers.
