Shania Twain Ready To Return To The Spotlight

Shania Twain, who has spent the past five years out of the spotlight, says she is ready to resume her career. In the December issue of Redbook, she talks candidly about the issues she's confronted in the last few years. "I struggled a lot internally with my fame, and coping with it has been very difficult," she says. "I was at the point where I would never look anyone in the eye. It was like living in prison." After retreating to her chateau in Switzerland with her husband and son, Shania is about to re-emerge.

In addition to being mom to her 6-year-old, promoting a new perfume and working on an album due that's due out next year, she says she's learning to take care of herself. "I'm not such a slave to pleasing everyone, which I think is a female tendency." she says. "I take more time for myself; that's a very big part of mental, emotional and physical health." As for getting back into public life, Shania says, "I'm not naturally a spotlight person...[but] I don't mind being the center of attention in a controlled, comfortable environment." She adds that music is an integral part of her life, and she wants "to write and record things that affect people in a positive way." So what does the future hold? She jokes, "I'll probably be in the Canadian wilderness somewhere."
