Shania Twain Says She Would Have Voted For Trump In 2016

Country star Shania Twain is Canadian, but if she had been allowed to vote in America’s 2016 elections, her choice would have been Donald Trump.

The singer expressed as much during a wide-ranging interview with The Guardian published Sunday. In it, Twain discussed her early life, her soaring “crossover” career, the Lyme disease that took her voice, her 15-year absence, and her recent comeback.

But as it often does, politics came up, and Twain made it clear she would rather have hers be “honest” instead of “polite.”

“I would have voted for [Trump] because, even though he was offensive, he seemed honest,” Twain told The Guardian. “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 bullshit. I would have voted for a feeling that it was transparent. And politics has a reputation of not being that, right?”

After a decade and a half-long break, Twain recently released her fifth album, called “Now,” and will be beginning a comeback tour in May.
