>In here is also talked about the no sex thing. Now I don't know if Shania actually said this herself ...<

Shania has stated that the assertion is not true.

Gotcha. My fingers don't always properly express what's really on my mind, either.

Yeah..somewhere between my brain an the keyboard the thought got lost. Maybe it was the fact that "Waiter Bring Me Water" was playing at the time. I am reallly liking that song.

This article felt like cut and paste somehow. Grab this sentence from THIS publication. Grab this thought from THAT publication. And to give credibility to the Enquirer gives me chills.

You hit the nail right on the head. Looks like they decided they needed a Shania article but had no one that knew anything about her and didn't take the time to find out anything. They just grabbed tidbits wherever they could find them without no concern as to their relevance or accuracy. I would have expected a lot more from such a major publication.

Yeah, even after Shania mentioned them in her "She's Not Just a Pretty Face" song.

I think you are onto something. It did seem a bit all over the place. If they were going to do a story, they should have at least grabbed some facts from Eggar's book, at least he has researched the subject.

LMAO!!!

Yeah, didn't BB say they had a Time magazine person traveling around with them in Europe? You would think they would have gotten their facts straight. Maybe we could write TIME, and straighten out some of their facts.

Well! i´m really confused!..... I guess I hated this article!...... I end up thinking that:

- Her music is GREAT but is ALL MADE TO SELL! ALL MADE TO HINOTYSE YOU!
- Shania does all that because of Mutt and her mother!
- She doesn´t like to be Shania!
- Mutt is crazy to get money and is not worried about expressing feeling in song-writing ... he only wants what sells!
- Shania hates to perform.
- Her brother thinks she´s a robot!

With all this I read I made me think that DOC is right! She is tired of been Shania! She doesn´t enjoy it!

It´s bad to read THAT in such a prestigious magazine like TIME!... It´s really bad! cause people will be getting all this as TRUE! We are not talkin about a tabloid! its TIME MAGAZINE. it will for sure be translated even to portuguese, and it will be available anywhere!

I REALLY HOPE THIS IS ALL WRONG!

Well... Thats not the Shania I love!

Marco

Looks like I'm going to pass on buying TIME this time. I didn't like the article at all...ESPECIALLY when they used NE as a stupid resource!!!! What were they thinking?!?! The writer kept going back and forth with his ideas about whether or not he liked Shania's music--just another stupid critic I guess.

A HYPER Shania fan,
Desiree

Hopefully, Marco, readers will notice how scattered and unverified comments are and realize this is not a one on one interview. People who are fans of Shania will recognize the fiction and continue to believe what they hear from reliable sources. People who dislike Shania would dislike her regardless of any article they read.

Because I feel familiar with Shania's basic philosophies - from various interviews where we've seen and/or heard her own thoughts, as well as numerous articles or publications that follow those patterns she's allowed us to know... I read the Time article and lost my respect for the magazine. I would have expected so much more from it. I can't help but believe they know good and well how fictional the Enquirer comments were. It would seem that they simply didn't care whether they were accurate or not, they just wanted to create an impact. Well... they did. I won't purchase another Time magazine. I hadn't realized it's a tabloid wannabe.

Gosh you take it pretty seriously!

Consider these thoughts:

1 The reporter did a terrible job of properly and accurating reporting and was extremely sloppy in his research work and used as fact info from tabloids.

2 He blew a golden opportunity to properly present one of the finest singers in the world to the world.

3 The Rolling Stone article due in January may actually very likely make Time look like neophytes and babes in the woods when it comes to properly and accurately writing about Shania.

4 Time is owned by AOL Time Warner and they appear to have materially deteriorated in their journalism and integrity since the change of ownership. They seem to be leaning toward the tabloid approach to journalism and are no longer a prestigious publication (if they ever were).

5 To let this rag get you upset gives them way too much credit.


A few nice letters to their editor may assuage your rancor and frustration over this piece.

One problem, AP news wire has picked up the story of "shania not wanting to perform" So this will start to spread. I guess this gives Shania more publicity to set the record straight. Let's hope the people magazine article is better researched.

Maybe between the moderators and admins here we can write a letter to their editor correcting some of their facts? What do you think????

That stuff from Def Leppard is from an interview they gave after not their last album but the one before that!
