The Canadian Press - ONLINE EDITION

Shania Twain says she's making new music and preparing to return to stage

TORONTO - Canadian country-pop darling Shania Twain is recording a new album and preparing to return to the stage.

The superstar singer from Timmins, Ont., made the revelation backstage at Sunday's Juno Awards, where she was inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame.

"I'm not really sure when I'll be able to get back up on that stage. I am preparing for it, I can tell you that, and I am already in the studio with new music and I'm very excited," she told reporters after a tearful speech onstage at the Air Canada Centre.

Twain added that fans will be able to hear her new music "soon," and that she's documented some of her songwriting process in an upcoming documentary-style TV series about her life.

Set to debut May 27 on the OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network in Canada, "Why Not? with Shania Twain" follows the chart-topper as she rediscovers herself after divorce and a break from recording.

Her journey includes a trip to her birthplace of Timmins with her sister, Carrie Ann, and a travelling adventure with her bandmates and closest confidantes.

"I actually created the concept myself," said the five-time Grammy winner, who also has an autobiography due out this spring.

"I actually went to (Winfrey), to be honest, initially, and said, 'What do you think of this idea that I have?' She loved it, and that was the end — that was the end of the beginning, I suppose."

Canuck rocker Bryan Adams introduced Twain during Sunday's Juno bash, calling her a "Canadian Treasure." In a video tribute, several music giants — including Kenny Rogers and Anne Murray — also sang her praises, and the crowd went wild as she walked onstage.

Backstage, Twain was humble and nearly speechless when she reflected on the accolades.

"I don't feel iconic, no, I can tell you that. I don't feel that way at all. I feel like a small-town girl from Timmins. That has never changed and it never will," she said, looking typically radiant in a long, flowing gown of black and white sequins with her long hair up in a ponytail.

"I was overwhelmed by the support. I feel wonderful in Canada. The people have never let me down, the fans have always been amazing and I just love this place, what can I say? I'm just at home here."

This year marked the 40th anniversary of the Junos, which Twain said she's watched since she was young.

"I was in awe of our Canadian awards show, I was in awe of our Canadian stars," said Twain, 45, who married businessman Frederic Thiebaud New Year's Day in Puerto Rico.

"And when I won my first Juno, that was it — I'd made it."

BEST SERENADE

We didn't think it could get any better after hearing Drake and Justin Bieber swapping verses of McLachlan's I Will Remember You, but that was before we saw Drizzy serenading Shania Twain in his opening monologue. With lyrics like, "You worked at McDonalds and I eat McDonalds / We should be together!" and "I'm dying to make you feel like a woman, baby," we're amazed she didn't jump out of her seat and rush the stage.

Still got that honeymoon feeling? Newlyweds Shania Twain and husband Frédéric overjoyed at JUNO Awards

They may have married over New Year but it seems that Shania Twain and her husband Frederic Thiebaud still have that honeymoon feeling.

The couple, who wed in Puerto Rico on January 1 this year, were looking overjoyed as they attended the JUNO Awards at the Air Canada Centre yesterday.

The Canadian singer took to the red carpet in a grey floor-length gown with black jewel embellishment.



Shania, 45,was honoured at the ceremony in Toronto and was inducted into the Canadian Hall of Fame and she took to the stage to receive her award.

Smiling widely she gushed about her home country and said: ‘I love our lakes, I love our bush, and, most of all, I love our people.’

But while it was Shania’s moment she had eyes only for Frederic and they were seen in fits of laughter as they sat together in the audience earlier in the evening.



Shania and Frederic married comes two and a half years after they discovered their respective ex-spouses were allegedly having an affair.

Twain was devastated to discover her first husband Robert 'Mutt' Lange got together with the singer's best friend Marie-Anne Thiébaud - ex-wife of Frédéric.

After initially consoling each other in the aftermath of the marriage breakdowns, Twain and Thiébaud's friendship developed into love, with the country star revealing their engagement on December 21.





Last night the couple were looking happier-than-ever as they celebrated Shania’s achievements.

Shania wasn't the only one celebrating last night and Arcade Fire walked away with four JUNO awards.

Deadmau5 and Drake, who was accompanied by his mother, were also in attendance at the Canadian Music Awards.

Shania has sold over 39 million copies of her 1997 album Come On Over which became the best-selling album of all time by a female musician in any genre and best-selling country album of all time.

Her last album was released in 2002, but yesterday Shania revealed that she is back in the studio nearly a decade later.

According to the Toronto Sun Shania said: ‘I’m not sure exactly when I’ll be able to get back out on that stage. I am preparing for it, I can tell you that. And I’m already in the studio working on new music and I’m very excited.’

And Shania hasn’t just been focusing on music the singer has an autobiography coming out as well as a reality show on the Oprah Network called Why Not? With Shania Twain.

The Junos were better than the Oscars and Grammys
Drake hosted better than he raps
by Michael Barclay on Monday, March 28, 2011 11:27am

Like most 40-year-olds in a business known for arrested adolescence, it was high time the Juno Awards ceremony started acting its age. That meant no more bad jokes, no embarrassing speeches, no cloying attempts at achieving that nebulous adjective “world-class.” A 40-year-old is neither young nor old, and last night’s Junos maintained a perfect balance between respect for elders (Neil Young won Artist of the Year) and the upstart youth (Justin Bieber won Pop Album of the Year).

Of course, there were still bad jokes—this is an awards show, after all—but nothing as cringe-worthy as in years past. As host, hip-hop superstar Drake was charming enough to make you forget that his whiny emo rap is mostly about the emptiness of fame and how terrible it is to be rich and get laid all the time. In his opening skit with Justin Bieber, they duetted on Sarah McLachlan’s I Will Remember You; with pianist Chilly Gonzales, he riffed on the rapper Snow and the Hockey Night in Canada theme, which at the very least proved that he can actually sing without Autotune.

For a next generation star, Drake was oddly old school—like, Brat Pack old school. The man is an actor, after all, and at the Junos he played his part better than anyone expected. (Or maybe, after James Franco co-hosted the Oscars, our collective expectations have plummeted to new depths.)

Choosing a hip-hop star—whose album Thank Me Later was the eighth-bestselling album in the U.S. last year—to host suggested a large generational shift, but other than an awkward skit where Drake visited an old-age home to teach seniors how to act hip-hop (which was more amusing than it had any right to be), this year’s Junos were remarkable for how successfully intergenerational they were.

Perhaps because the awards were celebrating a milestone, they managed to pull an all-star list of Canadian legends that encapsulate the history of Canadian popular music: present were Robbie Robertson, Neil Young, Buffy Sainte Marie, Rush, Bryan Adams, Daniel Lanois, Blue Rodeo, Maestro Fresh Wes, Sarah McLachlan, Shania Twain, Billy Talent, Feist, Broken Social Scene, Arcade Fire, K’naan, and Deadmau5. Seems only Celine was missing. The days when Canada’s sense of cultural security depended on whether or not Anne Murray would show up at the Junos are long past.

There’s always a fair amount of flag-waving at the Junos, and not just when K’naan is performing. Drake’s opening speech could have been written by Heritage Minister James Moore—and maybe it was, as Moore cancelled his usually stilted performance this year (hopefully because CTV would have considered it campaigning during an election). Shania Twain, being inducted into the Hall of Fame, gushed endlessly about her home and native land, in a speech seemingly inspired by Jean Chretien’s electoral stump speeches—she stopped short of saying, “I love da Rockies!” She did, however, say, “I feel like I should be wearing the Canadian flag here tonight. I love our lakes, I love our bush, I love our people,” prompting filthier minds to snicker at a major sex symbol using the word “bush.” (Though has anyone even made a “bush” joke since the John Waters movie Pecker? The woman is from Timmins, after all, give her a break.)

Humility was also the order of the evening. Twain said she was “more proud of the music made in Canada than I am of my own success.” Young, accepting Artist of the Year after beating Bieber and Drake, laughed, “What year is this?!” Single of the year went to the re-recorded version of K’naan’s Waving Flag, commissioned for Haitian earthquake relief. Arcade Fire promoted its own Haitian charity, Kanpe. Neil Young spoke eloquently while accepting the Allan Waters Humanitarian Award about musicians’ role in philanthropy.

For a ceremony that’s billed as more of a big-tent variety show than a hardware handout (only eight of the 40 awards are presented during the broadcast), the performances were perfectly pleasant, but not earth-shattering: Sarah McLachlan looked lovely; Hedley sounded suspiciously like Sarah McLachlan; Arcade Fire performed “Rococo,” a song that ’70s FM radio DJs might call a “deep cut,” and Broken Social Scene’s Andrew Whiteman made sure the TV cameras could see that he wrote “Vote Harper Out Now” on his guitar.

The sole misfire was right off the top: opening performer Down With Webster. Gene Simmons’s favourite Canadian act is a limp rap-rock group who looked like they won a high school battle of the bands, with a horn section clad in balaclavas and lyrics like “Woe is me / I’m so woah.” Yep, the show had nowhere to go but up from here.

Buck 65 and Deadmau5—the electronic performer who only ever appears in public with a giant mouse mask over his head—presented the Group of the Year award to Arcade Fire, the first of three awards the band scored during the telecast. Arcade Fire’s Win Butler politely kissed Deadmau5 on both sides of his mask, and gave a shout-out to “all the bands we came up with, from Royal City and the Hidden Cameras to Wolf Parade and the Unicorns.” Butler is a Texan who married a Montrealer; those fine bands probably form his sense of Canadian music, and it’s one of the reasons why his band is a hero to a new generation of this country’s music fans.

Not surprisingly to anyone, Justin Bieber won the Fan Choice Award, which is based on an Internet poll. As Esperanza Spalding and Kim Kardashian can tell you, Bieber fans know a thing or two about flooding the Internet with devotion to their idol. When Neil Young took Artist of the Year later in the night, Twitter’s funniest hashtag became whothef—kisNeilYoung.” Bieber phoned in his acceptance speech from a tour stop in Rotterdam, closing by saying, “Peace, Junos”—just to make sure we knew this wasn’t a generic thank-you video he sends out to all the award shows.

If Shania Twain’s induction into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame ruffled the feathers of Stan Rogers fans, still irked over their hero’s exclusion, they should note that Ms. Twain—who Steve Earle once called “the highest paid lap dancer in America”—has the bestselling album by a female artist in history; she sold 39 million copies of 1997’s Come On Over, a feat that’s considered impossible in today’s music industry.

It was an odd night for the Canadian music industry: Arcade Fire’s success, for example, has been in spite of the industry here, rather than a product of it (they thanked Dounia Mikou, the sole employee of their record label, Sonovox, which licenses the band’s music around the world). Drake and Justin Bieber owe a huge part of their success to their all-star American mentors (Kanye West, Lil Wayne, Usher) and social media. Sarah McLachlan just announced her split with her long-time manager, Nettwerk’s Terry McBride. In one of the only major-label victories of the night, Best New Artist went to Meaghan Smith, whose deal with Warner Music meant she was the only act in that category not on an independent label.

But if Toronto as an industry town was shut out of the awards, Toronto as a cultural centre was celebrated in ways that seem heretical. Did Drake really call Toronto “the greatest city in the entire world” on Canadian television? Isn’t there some kind of CRTC regulation about that?

And then there was the parade of Toronto roots music all-stars paying tribute to the city’s musical history: Sarah Harmer did Joni Mitchell’s Carey; Jim Cuddy, who learned how to play guitar with Gordon Lightfoot songs, did If You Could Read My Mind; City and Colour and Derek Miller did Neil Young’s Old Man, and The Band’s Shape I’m In was performed by all of the above, led by the Sadies and also featuring Serena Ryder, Greg Keelor, Justin Rutledge, and Kevin Hearn doing a very convincing Garth Hudson impersonation. Even though it was a shameless boomer nostalgia trip, it was the most inspired musical performance of the night.

And so there were no ridiculous speeches or performance flubs. There were no awkward presenter pairings. Shameless CTV cross-promotion was at a minimum (Lloyd Robertson appeared in Drake’s opening skit) and Ben Mulroney made himself the butt of a joke before anyone else could. Drake proved to be a much better host than he is a rapper: it was telling that he led the nominations but was entirely shut out, losing even Best Rap Recording to the much worthier Shad.

Two years ago, the Junos had sunk so low that I felt like burning a flag after watching. This year, the Junos were not only more entertaining than either the Grammys or the Oscars, but they represented the real maturity of the Canadian music industry. It’s about time.

Shania creates a buzz at Junos

By Jane Stevenson, QMI Agency

Shania Twain was teased backstage about her Canadian Hall of Fame induction acceptance speech at Sunday night's Junos in which she said: "I love our lakes, I love our bush, and, most of all, I love our people."

When told the Twittersphere was abuzz with her bush comment, she said: "What do you call it a forest?"

"C'mon, I'm from Northern Ontario! It's called the bush in Ontario! Somebody back me up here!'"

Twain, whose last album was 2002's Up!, said backstage at the Junos on Sunday that she's currently in the recording studio but couldn't give too many details on either the album or when she might start performing live again given rumours she might be doing a Las Vegas show.

"I'm not sure exactly when I'll be able to get back out on that stage," said Twain, 45, dressed in a lavender and black gown. "I am preparing for it, I can tell you that. And I'm already in the studio working on new music and I'm very excited."

In the meantime, Twain has an autobiography coming out and a reality show due on the Oprah Network called Why Not? With Shania Twain, which she said she pitched to Winfrey herself. But she says the Hall of Fame induction is right up there in terms of career achievements.

"Well, there's nothing like today. This is a really big moment and feels very genuine in every way."

Posted Mar 28th 2011 4:30PM by Joshua Ostroff

It was hardly surprising that country music mega-star Shania Twain was inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame at Sunday night's 40th annual Juno Awards in Toronto, but who would have guessed she'd get Twitter all a-titter when she proclaimed her affection for her Canadian homeland by saying, "I love our bush!"

Backstage after accepting her award from friend Bryan Adams, the classy star in her sequined gown ignored the assembled reporters' double entendres about her trending quip. "What do you call it? A forest? C'mon, I'm from Northern Ontario. It's called the bush in Ontario. Somebody back me up here!"

Shania also ducked questions about when exactly she would return to the stage to do more than say thank you, though we will apparently be hearing new music sooner than later.

"I'm not sure when I'll be able to get back up on that stage," she admitted. "I'm preparing for it. I'm already in the studio working. You're going to hear new music soon. I'm not sure how much I can tell, but I documented some of my songwriting process and I'll share that on the [TV] series. When that will become an album? It's all happening as we speak."



Shania, who attended the awards show with new hubby Frederic Thiébaud, was particularly talkative about her upcoming TV show, 'Why Not? With Shania Twain' on Oprah Winfrey's OWN network. "I actually created the concept myself," she said proudly. "It's not a reality show, it's a documentary type thing about an isolated experience in my life documented in real time. I actually went to Oprah, to be honest, and asked, 'What do you think of this idea that I have?' She loved it and that was the end."

As for the whole experience of becoming a Canadian Hall of Famer, Shania said she feels overwhelmed by all the support.

"I feel wonderful in Canada, the people have never let me down; the fans have been amazing. I just love this place. I'm at home here, and this is a really big moment. It feels really genuine in every way," she said, though she demurred when asked about being an icon.

"I don't feel iconic, I feel like a small town girl from Timmins -- that has never changed and it never will. I'm 45 years old and I started there and ended here, and that's who I am. I'm flattered, but I can't say I feel it myself."

Thanks for posting my videos Tommy. When Shania talks about releasing new music and 'being in the recording studio' - she could certainly mean her recent trip into the studio with Lionel Richie.

I know she was in contact with David Foster, and I am sure Foster and others are lined up to work with her! All we can do is hope and wait. At least she is back in the spotlight, out of the years of seclusion spent with Mutt.

Frederic has such a positive, outgoing influence on her. Too bad about the stalker. Just another reason to stay far away in Switzerland!

I cannot wait for the show! And I cannot wait for the new book!
