Shania Twain Reveals Which Actor She Would Name-Drop in a Song Today
She knows the perfect contemporary fit for her hit 'That Don't Impress Me Much.'
Shania Twain knows who'd replace Brad Pitt in "That Don't Impress Me Much" if the hit were written today.
In a new print issue of the UK magazine Radio Times, she revealed her pick: "It's Channing Tatum."
She said Tatum came to mind after watching the Magic Mike's Last Dance trailer.
"I'm trying to think how I would sing that," she said of the actor's name, which she thought wouldn't be as easy to belt out as "Brad Pitt."
But the lucky interviewer had the chance to hear Twain test out how the song would sound with Tatum's name: "'Okay so you're Channing Tatum' —yeah, that works," said the Canadian pop-country icon.
Twain, 57, recently swapped out Pitt's name for Ryan Reynolds' when she performed the classic at the 2022 People's Choice Awards in December.

Reynolds was thrilled to get the honor, tweeting, "I can’t think of a more iconic, smart and beautiful person to not impress all that much. Thank you for an amazing night, @ShaniaTwain❤️.
In an interview with NME, Twain also talked about another popular line from one of her most famous songs.
"People have been saying, ‘let’s go girls!’ forever. It’s not like I invented that phrase, [but] the fact that I put it in a song that became so big, I guess it just resurfaced in pop culture as a catchphrase," she said of the memorable opening line from "Man! I Feel Like A Woman."
Besides crafting unforgettable hits, Twain recently broke her five-year hiatus with new album Queen of Me. The album arrived in February and was written with some of the top pop songwriters, including Wayne Hector, Adam Messinger, and Iain Archer.
