Sha­nia: my agony

Daily Star Sunday - - FRONT PAGE -

MU­SIC leg­end Sha­nia Twain felt like she was “dy­ing” af­ter her hus­band of

14 years ran off with her best friend.

The That Don’t Im­press Me Much singer hit rock bot­tom af­ter mu­sic pro­ducer Robert Lange ended their mar­riage.

Sha­nia told me: “Be­trayal is a hard, dark and deep fall. I’ve been through some in­cred­i­bly dark times be­fore, so this wasn’t the first time I’ve felt like this but it still hit me hard. It felt like I was dy­ing in­side and

I’ve been to that place be­fore. It’s a dark, deep fall and it is hard to come back from.”

The Cana­dian singer has had many ca­reer highs, in­clud­ing

1997’s Come

On Over, which is still the biggest­selling al­bum by a fe­male solo artist in his­tory.

But she also has a his­tory of per­sonal lows in­clud­ing grow­ing up in an abu­sive home, her par­ents be­ing killed in a car crash and be­ing forced to take a 15-year ca­reer break due to los­ing her voice af­ter get­ting Lyme dis­ease.

Sha­nia per­formed at Ra­dio 2’s Live in Hyde Park gig last Sun­day along­side Take That, Emeli Sande and James Blunt. She re­leases come­back al­bum Now on Septem­ber 29. She added: “I put all of those feel­ings and emo­tions into the lyrics of this al­bum and I’m not apolo­getic or em­bar­rassed to say I got that low.

“Peo­ple are ask­ing if I’m scared or ner­vous to come back af­ter all this time, but I’ve been through the scary, hor­ri­ble bit with my throat prob­lems and di­vorce. “The jour­ney was so dif­fi­cult and long. Re­leas­ing the al­bum is the easy bit.”
