Shania Twain Shared a Cheeky Message In Honor of Brad Pitt's Birthday
Brad Pitt celebrated his 57th birthday yesterday and received thousands of birthday messages from fans online - including a special tweet from Shaina Twain. Twain took to Twitter in honor of the actor's birthday to spread a special message that caught everyone's attention. In the tweet, the country singer features a cheeky kiss-faced emoji and some people have been wondering - did Twain just get her shot with Pitt ?! Well ... not exactly. For one thing, Twain is happily married to her husband, Frédéric Thiébaud. Second, the tweet is nothing more than good old joke. See the fun tweet below!
"Happy Birthday to Brad Pitt, I'm making an exception today?" Twain wrote on Twitter. ICYMI, the tweet is actually a reference to a line from their 1997 hit "That Don't Impress Me Much" that calls out the actor.
"Okay, so you're Brad Pitt / I'm not very impressed," Twain sings on the track.

If you're wondering why (and how) Twain wasn't impressed with Pitt all those years ago, the singer finally revealed in a 2017 interview with Billboard why she now included the Pitt name on her hit. She told the point of sale that her reason for naming the actor was a scandal that was unfolding at the time regarding nude photos of Pitt and his then-fiancé Gwyneth Paltrow to be posted on Playgirl.
“You want to know the truth about this story? I've never said that before. I'll say it now, ”Twain told the publication. “I remember a friend visiting me and it was just before Christmas and we were baking cookies. I wrote this album and there was a scandal from [Pitt] and Gwyneth [Paltrow] that there were nude photos of him [in Playgirl magazine, which Pitt later successfully sued for publishing the paparazzi photos], ”continued they away.
Twain remembered that there was "all the anger" and TBH just didn't impress her. "I just thought," I don't know what all the fuss is about. "I don't think I'm impressed very much, I mean, what all the fuss is. We see people naked every day," she told Billboard. "I really thought so. I didn't choose Brad Pitt. But that was just the association at that moment and the things we make a fuss about and whatever. Of course, it could have been any beautiful guy. "
If only we could have got what we're sure of was an epic reaction from Pitt. I think we're just keeping our fingers crossed Shaina Twain is making another exception next year!
