Shania Twain’s comments about Donald Trump don’t impress me much.

Over the weekend, Shania Twain’s interview in The Guardian lit up the Internet. She expressed her views on President Donald Trump, and it alienated much of her fanbase and put the singer in a pop-political scandal she didn’t want to become a part of.

Twain says if she was eligible to vote in the 2016 election, she would have supported Trump.

 

 

“I would have voted for him because, even though he was offensive, he seemed honest. Do you want straight or polite? Not that you shouldn’t be able to have both. If I were voting, I just don’t want bulls–t. I would have voted for a feeling that it was transparent. And politics has a reputation of not being that, right?”

Naturally, a hashtag #ShaniaTwainCancelled began to trend. HOW COULD SHE SAY SUCH A THING?

Twain took the opportunity to apologize, saying she regretted answering the question before digesting it first. Uh huh.

“As a Canadian, I regret answering this unexpected question without giving my response more context. I am passionately against discrimination of any kind and hope it’s clear from the choices I have made, and the people I stand with, that I do not hold any common moral beliefs with the current President.”

Twain added that she felt the President had “talked to a portion of America like an accessible person they could relate to,” but wasn’t expressly endorsing him.

She added: “My answer was awkward, but certainly should not be taken as representative of my values nor does it mean I endorse him. I make music to bring people together. My path will always be one of inclusivity, as my history shows.”
