from AINAHS post Gosh you take it pretty seriously!


I´m not getting it too seriously. It´s not Marco´s point of view! I´m just thinking as a person who knows notting about her (a normal person) would think reading this article!

And what makes me THAT mad is that I know this ridiculous article will be translated and posted everywhere (even here in Brazil) !.... and as Chris has just said some other sites had just beggin to take parts of the article like the "shania not wanting to perform" ! Tomorow will be "shania doesn´t do sex!"...

thats a SHAME... I was expecting a GREAT article from Time not this S***!

Let's work on it. And some wonderful comments have been made here. I'm sure many of them will be used. Please post your (calm) thoughts everyone. All suggestions are welcome.

Shania has said in how many interviews over the past several weeks how she can't WAIT to get back up on stage and tour. And the wires are jumping on this Time thing. Sigh....

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

Yes, I'm hopeful it will. Time apparently considers entertainment coverage to be unworthy of serious attention, but for Rolling Stone it's the main thing.

I think we should start an alternate thread in the moderator forum for us to hash out a letter based on everyone's comments.

I´m calm now LOLOLO !

The things I think we should write are:

-They shouldn´t use tabloids as a sorce!
-Shania has a normal life with Mutt! Eja is here to prove!
-She wants to be back in stage with the fans as she said in zilions of interviews!
-Well WE EXPECTED MORE FROM THEM! THATS THE POINT!

Well that´s my opinion!

I completely agree with you Sheri....the low quality of this article has stunned me... ..and I agree that a letter in response to the article is a great idea..just to point out the many mistakes and sloppy mentions the journalist made....

Look at how it is being reported now......
http://www.cnn.com/2002/SHOWBIZ/Music/12/01/twain.ap/

Shania loves to perform...or does she?
PARIS, France (AP) -- Shania Twain, possibly on her way to becoming the first female singer with three 10 million-selling albums, can afford to be a little contradictory.

"I never burned to perform, and I don't care if I ever perform again," Twain said in a Time magazine interview on newsstands Monday. "I have no need to do that."

A few hours after that October statement, the 37-year-old Canadian was singing her signature ballad, "You're Still the One," with an aspiring singer on "Star Academy," a French reality game show in which amateur singers share a house and vote each other out on the basis of their musical progress.

Twain's pop-country "Come on Over," released in 1997, sold 19 million copies to become the most popular album by a female singer in American history.

Twain and Whitney Houston are the only women to have two albums sell more than 10 million copies each. And Twain's newest album, "Up!" released November 19, sold 874,000 copies in its first week, giving her a good head start toward reaching eight digits for a third time
----------------------------------------------------


I sense a PR crisis in the making.

That is why she got Q on her team - they get the big bucks to make lemon out of lemonade.

They will spin this to Shania's betterment and in the process Time Magazine will be made to look almost as bad as the tabloids they rely on for "facts".

We needed an EOTY awards + a world wide tour to proof she was a GREAT PERFOMER and know only a RIDICULOUS article from a huge magazine to stat it all over again!

C'est la vie!

We need a good comprehensive article on Shania that spells out the facts and Shania's thoughts and feelings where she has been, where she is and where she is going - with Rolling Stone being owned by Vivendi Universal just maybe this will happen in their January issue.

Yikes, the writer collected some People and NE article and so on..and wrote from them an article. Even Darryl's name did not get right.
Another thing, I think he had he's own view on them before, an just used the article for it, since it goes in one way.
Third, I tought, that they had show it for approvement before posting it, but who knows.
Last but not least, it was a mistake from Shania's side, because for reduce the demage her image got here she'll have to answer to some not nice questions, not just in the State, but abroad too.Even if she don't like to explain whatever they doing.

where did they find that journalist!!!! i am really angry because of how irresponsible that story is...the journalist probably thinks his job is done once he types in his article and sends it in - but did he stop to think how it would affect shania after it was done? he uses unverified facts and makes no sense most of the time...i normally enjoy reading Time magazine and look forward to it every week - i am really disappointed this time.
