However, she admits that she was petrified ahead of the shoot:
“I did a whole shoot as part of the album artwork where I’m completely nude. And it was very… it was really scary. I don’t really love my body, I don’t love looking at myself in the mirror with the lights on or looking in the mirror at all at my body. So I said, listen, I’m going to face that fear.
It was so empowering, I’m so glad I did it. I was petrified, but once I flicked that switch, and dove into it, I’m like ‘I’m all in.’ I committed 100 percent.
And I wasn’t thinking about what anybody thought, I didn’t think about who was in the room. This is about me, this is my moment to really embrace myself in a vulnerable moment. It had to be vulnerable where I felt that I was facing a fear of being judged or maybe even laughed at, being embarrassed.
But it was only empowering. It was really fabulous.”
You would never believe this woman is 57.
It’s nice to see a female icon from our younger years stepping out with a new lease on life and the fortitude to share that with other women. We all need a little more Shania in our lives and less fear to “feel like a woman!”
