Shania Twain Shares Why She Considers Cutting The Famous Brad Pitt Reference From Her Hit Song

Shania Twain Shares Why She Considers Cutting The Famous Brad Pitt Reference From Her Hit Song

Shania Twain, 58, is set to perform as one of the Legends at the Glastonbury Festival later this month, alongside co-headliners Dua Lipa, Coldplay, and SZA.

The singer will make her debut appearance at Glastonbury and recently discussed her upcoming performance on the podcast Sidetracked with Annie and Nick.

During the podcast, Shania and host Nick Grimshaw talked about her setlist and why she considers leopard print to be her favorite color. They also discussed her iconic 1997 hit song: “That Don’t Impress Me Much.”

One of the most well-known lines from the song was the transition from the pre-chorus into the chorus, where she mentions one of the era’s hottest stars, singing: “Okay, so you’re Brad Pitt/That don’t impress me much.”

Nick asked Shania whether she had ever considered changing the name from “Brad Pitt” to someone else, or whether she’d even actually done it, and the Canadian country-pop star revealed that she did indeed.

“Who would be your ‘So you think you’re Brad Pitt’ or 2024 do you think?” he asked, and she responded: “Well, I was at a live show, and Ryan Reynolds was in the audience.”

“And I just very cheekily said ‘Ryan Reynolds’ because he was there and it was very cute,” she shared, explaining that her reasoning behind picking Brad was a “James Dean” quality to him.

“I sort of see Brad Pitt as a James Dean of his generation,” she continued. “And I see Harry Styles as that as well, can’t you see that? He’s rugged, but pretty, does that make sense? It’s like a charm that he has.”

Shania believed that the best pick for a new “Brad Pitt” in the song would be “Harry Styles,” and even tried adding it in on the spot, justifying it by saying: “And it sings good too!”

Shania and Harry have openly shown their mutual admiration for each other, culminating in 2022 when Shania surprised audiences by joining Harry’s Coachella set, both dressed in matching patterned sequined outfits. In 2023, Shania further cemented their friendship by presenting him with an award at the BRIT Awards.

The hitmaker of “You’re Still the One” spoke with Zane Lowe last year about how she initially didn’t expect the Coachella performance to have such a significant impact on their fans across generations.

“I didn’t realize the significance of that moment,” she added. “I just saw it as a moment to get together with Harry, but I didn’t see it as such a landmark moment… It was such a wonderful surprise, everyone’s reaction.”

She continued: “It’s the Harries, his age group and even younger. Their moms had my music on, and they’re in the backseat, and they know. At some point, they know every word by heart.” Shania also added how she saw fans from Harry’s generation at her shows today.

“They’re there with their mom or their grandmother, or they’re just there with a bunch of girls because they were little kids together, growing up together, listening to this stuff. Now, it does absolutely make sense, and it’s beautiful.”
