The Canadian singer told the Guardian that she appreciated President Trump's authenticity and probably would have lent her support if she was an American citizen. She said, "I would have voted for him because, even though he was offensive, he seemed honest. Do you want straight or polite?", the singer explained. "And politics has a reputation of not being that, right?"

That quote didn't impress her fans much, and the backlash began soon after, resulting in Twain posting a string of tweets in an attempt to clarify her views.

In a new interview with The Guardian, Shania Twain-who ended a lengthy hiatus from the music industry previous year with the release of her album Now-described the already well-known story of her current comeback, but also dropped a few surprises.

In the chat, Twain, who had laryngoplasty to reconstuct her vocal box six weeks since prior to it, admitted, "I never thought I'd sing again". "I am passionately against discrimination of any kind and hope it's clear from the choices I have made, and the people I stand with, that I do not hold any common moral beliefs with the current President".

She's about to embark on her first album tour since 2002, with dates in most major Canadian cities.
