Man, Shania Twain still looks like a woman.
The country star said Sunday (May 19) on the 2013 Billboard Music Awards red carpet that she likes to have “fun with fashion.” While that was evident again at the event, she’s also feeling quite comfortable as a current Las Vegas resident, which made it a short hop for her to get to the awards at the MGM Grand — as it was when she appeared at last month’s Academy of Country Music Awards, also staged at that site.
Twain is back in the spotlight as the star of her own show (“Shania: Still the One”) at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace, where she started a two-year run in December. “Whose Bed Have Your Boots Been Under?,” “Come On Over” and “That Don’t Impress Me Much” are among the many hits the performance encompasses.
Despite the considerable size of that room, Twain maintains “it’s more intimate than when you’re out on the road” to entertain audiences there. “And there’s more consistency in the performance.”
That engagement also is helping Twain rev up to record again. While she says “the writing is always there” in terms of prepping new material, she muses, “I’ve gotta kick myself in the butt and get back in the studio.”
That would be only her fifth studio album … and in the meantime, Vegas will be providing plenty of opportunities for fans that the Twain shall meet.
