SINGER Sha­nia Twain has come clean about what in­spired her hit sin­gle That Don’t Im­press Me Much… Brad Pitt’s COCK!

The ac­tor gets a namecheck in the lyrics of Sha­nia’s 1997 hit and now we know why.

The coun­try- pop star, 51, ex­plained that nudes of the Thelma and Louise star leaked to Play­girl had her won­der­ing “what all the fuss [ was] about”.

Sha­nia dished about the song’s ori­gin story dur­ing an in­ter­view with Bill­board mag­a­zine.

She said: “I re­mem­ber I had a girl friend vis­it­ing me and it was near Christ­mas and we were bak­ing cook­ies.

“I was writ­ing this al­bum and there was a scan­dal of [ Pitt] and Gwyneth [ Pal­trow] where there was naked pho­tos of him.”

The pho­tos scan­dal blew up af­ter Play­girl pub­lished pics of Pitt in the al­to­gether at his home, taken with­out his per­mis­sion.

The Man, I Feel Like A Woman songstress said the pics were “all the rage”, but not for her.

She said: “I just thought ‘ I don’t know what all the fuss is about. I’m like, well that don’t im­press me much’.

“We see peo­ple naked ev­ery day. That’s really what I thought.”

She claimed she “wasn’t pick­ing on Brad Pitt” with the lyrics, adding: “It could have been any gor­geous guy.”
