Shania Twain can't believe she has 'the best karaoke song ever'

"I mean, every person in the world can sing that song with an exclamation mark"

Shania Twain never expected 'Man! I Feel Like A Woman!' to become an all-time karaoke anthem.

The 57-year-old singer still can't believe her iconic 1999 track has been recognised by Billboard as the greatest karaoke song of all time, and she noted its "feel-good" appeal.

Appearing on 'The Jennifer Hudson Show' this week, she said: "I think that is so cool. Certainly I would never have imagined that, that I would ever have the biggest karaoke song in the world.

"But I enjoy the compliment and I can just imagine… I mean, every person in the world can sing that song with an exclamation mark.

"It’s just a statement, kind of feel-good song.”

Meanwhile, Shania previously admitted turning her life story - which, as well as her long career, includes growing up in a violent home, losing her parents in a car crash and her first husband cheating on her with her best friend - into a movie could be on the cards, while her songs would make a great soundtrack for a stage show.

Asked about the possibility of a biopic or a musical, she said: “Yes. Both of those things are possibly in the future.

“All sorts of things are in the pipeline. I’m writing songs all the time and the Netflix documentary ['Not Just A Girl'] has been a huge talking point in my life and career.

“There’s all sorts of things coming up but things I probably can’t talk about right now. But I’ve got a very busy few years ahead of me.”

The Canadian singer - who has son Eja, 21, with ex-husband Robert 'Mutt' Lange and is married to Frederic Thiebaud - spent a long time in London working on her new album but has ruled out a permanent move to the UK because she wouldn't be able to secure her dream home.

She explained: “If I could live at the stables in Hyde Park, I would. I just want to live next to the horses each morning.

“That’s been my dream for many, many years and I’ve asked a lot of people but I don’t think it’s going to happen.”
