Shania is now in Denmark

Shania is now in Denmark

Shania checked in to a luxurious hotel late Thursday (Danish time)

A Danish tabloid met up with her.

Here's the scan (It was a full page-article):

The picture text reads: "STARHAPPY: Shania Twain is so thrilled for the programme "Star For A Night" that she is willing to get a standardfee - far below the the worldstar's price. After a recently ended promonotial tour in the USA, she checked in at the d'Angleterre in Copenhagen."

"Star For A Night" is a programme that allows ordinary pople to dress up and lip sync, pretending to be a real star. "D'Angleterre" is the most luxurious hotel in Copenhagen/Denmark.

The headline reads: "DR gets Shania Twain for 5.000 kr"

DR ("Danmarks Radio") is statsowned/public service/commercial free Danish Broadcasting Company. 5.000 kr. (Danish "kroner") is ca. $750.

The rest of the article (it's in Danish!) tells that Shania arrived late Thursday in a cab without bodyguards to the hotel where her 8-man crew has been staying since Sunday.

It goes on writing about the small fee.

Shania says that Eja is in Schwitzerland; "I am not worried to leave at home, because he is with his father".

The article quotes the Time-article: 100 room-mansion and no sex-religion. (That story just wont die - I said it was a tabloid!)

Thanks to Annette from the Forums she got a firsthand glimce of Shania. Here is her observation.

We are still in shock!!! She's so amazing!!! and so beautiful, she's even more beautiful in real life than on tv She's got the most fantastic smile She's just so... petite!!!

The Boogie show was great! We were standing outside less then 2 meters from Shania It was so unreal! She wore jeans, black top and a cap
They didn't talk about something that we don't already know. There were some questions asked by sms: What's the most embarrasing thing you have done on stage? Shania: Tripped on stage at a concert in Canada.
They showed the video for Ka-Ching We were standing inside at the time and when we saw the video we hurried outside, because they had speakers outside and we wanted to hear the song. The about 8 other persons there hurried after us, because they thought Shania was out there But we just wanted to see the video
The video rocked btw

She didn't come out after the show, so we didn't get our autograph or to really meet her. But it was totally worth it anyway

Star for a night:
She sang Ka-Ching, and she sang live Her own band wasn't there... After the song she sat down with the competitors (what's it called ?) and sang YSTO with them
After that there was a short interview and she gave a piece of advice to the competitors. It was some thing about staying true to what you want to do and not go with the flow, that's what makes you uniqe.

Amalie & Annette

Don't know if anyone got screencaps of the show, but if they did, please post them!

Also, glad to know she sang live this time!:D

I think we can afford this fee to have a one song performance of the song..:BL ;)

I don't mean to make Shania sound calculating but she didn't do the show for the money in the short term. It is part of her publicity and will pay handsome dividends in the long run.

She cut her hair??


tankandmaddie 02-21-2003 09:17 PM

Why do you think she cut her hair?

It looks different.


tankandmaddie 02-21-2003 09:47 PM

I can't even see her hair very well anyway.

Sheri 02-22-2003 01:10 AM

I think she simply wasn't wearing any extensions. It's back in a ponytail or braid.

Well. I got to see Shania for real!

Unfortunately, she slipped into the studio at the "TV City" through a back intrance or something, so I never got a picture or a autograph.

The Boogie-show is like Total Request Live at MTV, where you outside, through the windows, could see her in the studio getting interviewed. The studio is (unlike MTV) at the ground floor, so I was less than 2 meter away from her.

I have to say, she is really short and skinny, Well: TINY.

About the shows:


The interview:She wore a demin-cap and black blouse and jeans: She has been in Denmark a couple of times. Musically, she progressed over time from country to several styles. In the beginning, her record company said she had to make a choice; country. Still it was her music. With the current album she had the chance to be combine different influences. She can make songs from "Woman In Me" very rock or pop. The current album has 3 versions. She reffers to impressionist painters, who paint the same scenes in different lights.

They played the "Ka-Ching!"-video.

SMS questions: Her songs are from personal experience; her female perspective.

It depend whether she is hard to impress, but she is easy to please (She has never met Brad Pitt).

Her most embarring thing, she has experienced on stage, was when she fell because she didn't see a running tread mill. It was in Toronto.

Star For A Night

Shania performed "Ka-Ching!" with a lepard skin-cap, black blouse, bare belly buttom and brown pants.

She jammed "Still The One" with the 6 contestants, sitting down on the stage stairs.

The interview: They talked about her first performance. She was 8 years at a Telethon. She never practice her voice. An advice to the contestants: Stay original and true to yourself: That makes you original.

At the Boogie-show there was some people, who managed to get an ID-tag, saying they knew someone at the TV City, and got to meet Shania and got an autograph at the rehersals of Star For A Night in another studio at the TV City. They said that she was very nice and pleasant.

Shania made it into the tabloids again:

Here is the best from the article:

"Sometimes I loose the courage and feel like stopping my career. Then you meet some fans or play a concert, and then the good humour comes back. It's like playing on a team, where you are being backed up, even if it's not going so great" says Shania Twain. It's clear, that behind the wellgrommed friendly exterior, hides an irritation over the present markedcondition.
"When I was growing up it wasn't necessary to be on television to sell your music. Now everything is extremely visual. Unless people can relate to you as a person, they can't relate to your music" tells Shania Twain.


Shania has become 37 years old, and tiny ryncles can be traced under the make up. Her son, Eja, had become one-and-a-half year old and has made Shania slow down her career due to family life. But even if Shania is far older than the teenagers that dominate the charts today, she can go on for a long time.
"I feel nothing regarding my age, Neither physically or mentally, so I can go on for a long time" she tells, almost offended over the question."


Accordingly to Time Magazine, Shania is member of a sect that prohibit amongst orther things sex. But that rumour is soon swept away by Shania.
"It's nonsens."
"How do you think I got my son", she ask laughting.
"Is it done the naturally way?"

STAR AND MOTHER. Shania that last night appeared on "Star For A Night" has slowed down. She wants to be more for the son Eja.
