Shania Twain reflected on her biggest onstage malfunction, and it’s probably not what you’d expect.
The global superstar sat down with Kelly Clarkson on the original American Idol champ’s daytime talkshow, The Kelly Clarkson Show, on Thursday morning (February 2). Clarkson and Twain were talking about quick wardrobe changes during live performances, and how challenging and “exhausting” it is to switch looks in a short amount of time (Clarkson said, because of a zipper, her dress nearly came off completely, “and I was commando” underneath).
Twain’s biggest mishap, however, was a bit different:
“…Actually, the biggest mishap I’ve had on stage was with my horse. One time, my horse was on stage, drops a big poop — and it’s big, and it’s steamy and it’s stinky, you know — I mean, not for me. I love the smell of horse poop. Everything I own smells like horse poop. But, it was just really awkward, so I just had to say, ‘well, (expletive) happens!’”
Twain is gearing up for a massive international tour in 2023, in support of her highly-anticipated album, Queen of Me, which is set to make its long-awaited debut on Friday (February 3). The award-winning singer-songwriter has previously shared how her Queen of Me era aims to celebrate being comfortable in her own skin. She previously opened up about posing nude in a photoshoot. Twain said on The Kelly Clarkson Show:
“I think it’s just very important to be comfortable in our own skin… I always did [have a problem with nudity]. I’m one of those people that never enjoyed looking in the mirror with the lights on, and now I’m 57. …If I don’t learn to love what I’m looking at in the mirror now, I’m gonna hate myself tomorrow! …So, I said, ‘I’m gonna start right now.’ So, I did that photoshoot, I did a lot of nude photos, I forced myself under lights, in front of the cameras with the crew there. I’m taking these pictures, I’m marking this day as, ‘this is the best I’m going to look anyway, forever, so I might as well own that and enjoy it while I’ve got whatever that is, at 57.’”
