Shania Twain, 55, herself reflected on how much the 39-year-old superstar’s performances inspired her own, particularly Twain’s Las Vegas residency, back in February. “I thought her show was great and I was motivated to get on that same stage, so her show inspired me a lot. It was a fantastic show,” she said during her own Apple Music show Home Now Radio.
Spears’ attorney Samuel D. Ingham III said in court last November that the pop star “will not perform again” out of fear of her father James Spears, who’s had a central role in the court conservatorship that has controlled his daughter’s life and career for 12 years. She’s been on an indefinite work hiatus since early 2019.
On Wednesday, Spears will be able to speak directly in court at her conservatorship hearing in Los Angeles.
