SHANIA CHATS WITH FANS ONLINE

Shania Twain recently chatted online with fans about her new album, about being famous and about what she's been up to lately.

The big question from fans was what to expect from her upcoming album, "UP." The answer -- "Lots of music," said Shania. "I think you'll hear a natural progression, but you will still recognize me from where I left off."

As for being famous, Shania says that's not really her focus. "Being famous isn't all that great or anything to aspire to, personally," she said. "I always pursued music and was lucky enough to become successful. If I could do what I do without being famous, that would be my choice. Ideally, I would have become a back-up singer and have other stars sing my songs... It's changed my life in a big way because I don't get a lot of privacy and I'm naturally a fairly withdrawn person, so it's challenging for me to get out there and be a star."

And what about motherhood -- has it changed her life? "It's changed my priorities in life, which ultimately affects everything," said Shania. "The time was right to have him, so it hasn't turned my life upside down. It's all come very naturally and I'm managing it very well, so I can't say life has changed all that drastically."

The chat was sponsored by Britain's "Top of the Pops," and can be viewed in its entirety: here.
