‘As a Canadian, I regret answering this unexpected question without giving my response more context.’
The That Don’t Impress Me Much hitmaker continued by explaining that she recognizes the sociopolitical climate and that her core values have been centered around being inclusive.
Twain said: I am passionately against discrimination of any kind and hope it’s clear from the choices I have made, and the people I stand with, that I do not hold any common moral beliefs with the current President.

‘I was trying to explain, in response to a question about the election, that my limited understanding was that the President talked to a portion of America like an accessible person they could relate to, as he was NOT a politician.
‘My answer was awkward, but certainly should not be taken as representative of my values nor does it mean I endorse him. I make music to bring people together. My path will always be one of inclusivity, as my history shows.’

She explained: ‘I would have voted for [Trump] because, even though he was offensive, he seemed honest. Do you want straight or polite? Not that you shouldn’t be able to have both.
‘If I were voting, I just don’t want bulls***. I would have voted for a feeling that it was transparent. And politics has a reputation of not being that, right?’
Meanwhile Shania showed that she is still hip as she partied it up at Coachella last week with Nicki Minaj, French Montana, Timothee Chalamet, and members of Migos.
