Shania Twain: ‘Ageing is a battle you can’t win’

Shania Twain has given up trying to fight ageing as it was "taking up too much space in my life",

The Man! I Feel Like a Woman! hitmaker is currently in the midst of her Let's Go! residency show in Las Vegas and, speaking on Tuesday's instalment of the LadyGang podcast, the 54-year-old confessed getting older helped her acknowledge her power as an artist.

"For me personally, I'm sure it's very different for everybody, but I just started with time," she said. "Stepping out of battles that I couldn't win. I mean, you know, ageing is a battle you can't win."

The Life's About To Get Good star added: "That battle and the focus and energy it takes, is taking up too much space! In my life, my emotional state, my mental state… I've got songs to write. I'm not gonna sit around."

The musician, who released a new record, Now, in 2017, went on to insist her music is her top priority, and she has no time to give to other insignificant worries.

"I'd rather dream about songs or dream about other things I want to do in my life, and I want to just daydream. I want to fantasize and enjoy what I do have and just, like, forget about the stuff I can't change, or that I can't have," she smiled. "So, I think it's a waste of time and energy to worry about trying to slow my ageing process down."
