Shania Twain once passed up an opportunity to make an album with Prince at Paisley Park. But it wasn't just any album, it was what Prince called the next Rumours album, the iconic Fleetwood Mac record.
Shania, who was going through a nasty divorce from Mutt Lange at the time was having difficulty finding her footing. She tells Apple Music, "I hadn’t found my voice yet. I was still working on it. I was so far from finding it, still. I was writing, but I was too insecure to get with Prince in the studio. I was too insecure in every way."
On top of that, Shania, who is known to have a potty mouth was told by Prince that cursing isn't allowed in his home. She said to Prince, “Oh no, I love you so much, but I don’t think I could get through writing and recording an album without swearing somewhere along the way! What are you going to do to me if I swear? I’m going to have to stand in the corner or something!” Needless to say the album never materialized.
Shania's Queen of Me album comes out Friday.
