Pop icon Shania Twain, has caused shockwaves by meeting with the ghost of Nelson Mandela for lunch – and remaining deeply unimpressed. In her 1997 hit single, ‘That Don’t Impress Me Much,’ Shania remained unimpressed by a string of boyfriends, who either owned cars, were rocket scientists, or were literally Brad Pitt. Clearly, she had extremely high standards, with one ex-boyfriend saying ‘…I am literally a rocket scientist responsible for sending men to the moon. And I wasn’t good enough!’ However, it was believed Shania simply had high standards, and required men to be truly exceptional to ‘impress’ her.
This week, she dined with the ghost of human rights icon, Nelson Mandela. They had met to discuss Shania’s claim that she was the ‘Nelson Mandela’ of country-influenced pop music, and many were shocked that Mandela had somehow risen from the dead. But when questioned after the lunch at Hog’s Breath Café, Shania simply shrugged and said the reanimated corpse of one of the most influential figures of modern mankind ‘…don’t impress me much.’
‘After all, he’s a corpse. He can’t keep me warm in the middle of the night.’
Difficult to argue with that logic.
