While they don’t know one another personally, Shania Twain has some pearls of wisdom for Miley Cyrus.
In a new interview with Canada’s Globe and Mail, Shania says, “I don’t know why she’s doing what she’s doing. So, I don’t really have a opinion on that. But you’ve got to do what works for you. Being in that critical eye is a challenge in itself. Miley is assessing what she’s doing, and saying ‘this is who I am,’ then I say do that. Hopefully she’s enjoying it.”
Shania added that her next challenge as an artist is finding a new producer to helm her new music. She says, “It’s time to get into the studio. The new songs are more intimate than they’ve ever been for me, and that will help in creating the sound that I want.”
Shania Twain was voted most beautiful in Country Weekly Magazine.
