Shania Twain has been known to use a bit of sexuality in her artistry. So what does she make of the recent dustup about Miley Cyrus’ MTV Video Music Awards performance?

“You’ve got to do what works for you,” Shania tells Canada’s The Globe and Mail.

“Being in that critical eye is a challenge in itself,” Shania adds. “If Miley is assessing what she’s doing, and saying ‘this is who I am,’ then I say, do that. Hopefully she’s enjoying it.”

So did Shania ever feel pressure to sex it up?

“I was always comfortable with what I was doing. Looking back, I never felt pressure to exploit myself,” she said.

“And I remain comfortable with it today. It would be horrific, looking back 20 years later, as I am now, and feeling embarrassed at what I did. I would never want to set myself up for that.”
