Shania, This Year’s Cosmo Queen

Among receiving other honors such as Playboy’s music poll awards, Shania Twain was at a New York City party recently to officially accept her title as Cosmopolitan magazine’s “Fun, Fearless Female of the Year.” While making her acceptance speech, Twain delivered a touching story, wearing a dark plum business suit with a skirt. Her speech included details about a Canadian business woman she knew who battled sexual harassment at an earlier job. According to Twain, the lady decided that instead of running from the situation, she’d put a stop to it. This also inspired Twain not to be ashamed of being sexy, but to instead be proud. Her message to younger girls was to “Be proud of your femininity.” When Twain’s tour ends in July, she will be excited “to be a wife for a change.” She and husband/producer Mutt Lange have homes in both Switzerland and Miami, Florida.
