“She needs a spine transplant”: Everybody hates Shania Twain now

Amanda HeadRebel Contributor

First Shania Twain told a British newspaper that she would have voted for Donald Trump. After the inevitable backlash, she apologized in a series of tweets.

Now people on both sides are ticked off at her. There was no reason for this to happen...

This story is bullshit. Nobody gives a fuck. You either like Shania Twain’s music, or you don’t.

Trump supporters, and their Canadian “mini-me”s are such whiney pussies. Just read the rest of the comments here if you doubt this for just one moment.

She threw you a soundbite you could have used for ever, but when she realized that she had offended almost the entire citizenry of her home and native land, she backpedaled because her primary market is still all those Canadians who love her, partly BECAUSE of her white trash origins and her struggle to “make it” from when she was young, poor, and ignorant, but also she reminds them of THEIR youth and THEIR struggles to “make it” – whether they lean right or lean left – if they love country music, and they love Canada, odds are, they love Shania. She fucked this cash cow up a bit by dipping her toe into American politics. Celebrities need to learn this – and many like Shania learn the hard way – you either need to dive all the way in, like U2 or Neil Young, for example, or stay the fuck out of politics completely – there is no middle ground.

Now she’s just ignorant – at least when it comes to politics. But she’s a smart marketer, and that’s why she backpedaled. I agree she’s spineless, but she’s YOUR kind of spineless – she’s a superficial “fair weather” conservative, like most of you. I don’t hate her for that, I’m not outraged, I think it was funny, and indicates that the vast majority of celebrities should stick to their day jobs.

Me, as a bit of a leftie, who hates most country music, am I “outraged” at her initial comment? No. Not at all. I still like her – as a musician, or a bit of ‘fake news’ eye candy, she’s still “okay” – but more so because she still seems very down to earth and hasn’t forgotten where she came from – despite being wealthy beyond the dreams of the vast majority of her fans and fellow Canadians, and all the plastic surgery and other fakeness – including the “art” – that goes with the genre she performs. Will I break all the CDs we bought just prior to when our then six year old watched her spellbound at her first Grey Cup performance and asked shyly if she was married? Shall I delete her songs from all my wife’s playlists? Of course not.

Members of Team Angry needs to get a life. Being part of the Perpetual Anger Machine must be very draining. No one gives a fuck about this or half of the other bullshit you whinge about. Why not cover some real news? Tell us about something REALLY controversial from Hollywood – like what’s up with Scientology? Who’s in that cult, who is out? Whose the next great white hope from Hollywood for the GOP? It’s been a long time since Bonzo Went to Washington.

Give us some positive coverage of your favorite conservative celebrities, instead of just bashing the other ones who you secretly admire and would do so publicly if only they were doting Trump supporters, instead of intelligent human beings with flaws and shortcomings, just like all the rest of us.

Shania is RIGHT . . . . Trump may very well be the Last, Best Hope for Western Civilization today !

Certainly we have no leaders in this country . . . h*ll most Canooks are too friggin stoopid to know what is going on in their country, let alone the world.
Any group that would elect a Justin Trudope, Dog Catcher Wynn, Rachel Nutley, and Hopeless Horrigan . . . is desperately out of touch with reality.
So-called Conservatives are not much better . . . they are spineless, gutless and more concerned about getting their pensions than the well-being of Canada.

When you keep jumping from starboard to port ,eventually the ship of values and beliefs will capsize and sink.

You would think she might have learned something after a few decades? Guess not?

Enough of the Back Tracking to Please The Left.
The Left Loves To See You Crumble To Them and Their Political Correctness Crap!
For The Most Part Donald Trump Is Doing A Great Job Of Making America Great Again.
Merry Christmas Is Back In The USA, Thanks To Trump!
PM Jihadi Justy Treasonous Trudy on the other hand is A Total Disgrace To Canada and World!

These celebrities make statements & when they get criticized, they apologize. For what, if they don’t believe what they’re saying, why not shut up already. Now she’s angered both sides.

If you don’t have the strength of your convictions, STOP TWEETING.

Another Canadian that doesn’t live in Canada but continues to embarrass themselves and takes Canada along for the ride.

Keep doing your little singsongs Shania and leave such things as politics, values, the state of the world and social comment to those who actually have a spine.

Foolish girl…..if you’re a sheep in the collective, the rules are easy to follow. You stray from the herd, the wolves will devour you.

It never pays to backtrack.. make a statement that you’re comfortable with and be prepared to defend it.!!

I’m surprised that she didn’t know any better. Maybe she was rebooting her career. A very bad move for someone who enjoys her privacy.
commented 2018-04-24 16:20:34 -0400
Too bad Shania didn’t stand by her original statement.
commented 2018-04-24 16:17:02 -0400
Note to all Conservatives: Quit apologizing to the Left. It enables them. It feeds them. If anything, say things purposely to make them angry then refuse to apologize. Shania, I forgive you, but please retract your apology!
