Shania Twain is no longer worrying about getting older. The 54-year-old admits in an interview with the LadyGang podcast that she’s accepted that she can’t fight time.

“For me personally, I'm sure it's very different for everybody, but I just started with time,” she says. “Stepping out of battles that I couldn't win. I mean, you know, ageing is a battle you can't win.” She adds, “'That battle and the focus and energy it takes, is taking up too much space! In my life, my emotional state, my mental state.”

Shania says she has too many other things to be concerning herself with including writing songs. “'I want to fantasize and enjoy what I do have and just, like, forget about the stuff I can't change, or that I can't have,” she explains. “So, I think it's a waste of time and energy to worry about trying to slow my aging process down.”
