Shania Twain Sends a Special Birthday Shout-Out to Brad Pitt in a Cheeky Reference to Her 1997 Hit
"Okay, so you're Brad Pitt/ That don't impress me much," Shania Twain sings
“Okay, so you're Brad Pitt/ That don't impress me much,” Twain, 55, says in the song.
The star previously opened up about why she included the famous actor in the track in 2017, telling Billboard that it had to do with a scandal that was unfolding in the news regarding nude photos of Pitt amid his split from ex Gwyneth Paltrow.
“I remember I had a girlfriend visiting me and it was near Christmas and we were baking cookies,” Twain said at the time. “I was writing this album and there was a scandal of [Pitt] and Gwyneth where there were naked photos of him.”
“And this was like, all the rage,” she continued. “I just thought, ‘I don’t know what all the fuss is about.’ I’m like, well that don’t impress me much, I mean what is all the fuss?”
The line in the song, therefore, was meant to downplay the controversy.
“We see people naked every day,” Twain said. “That’s really what I thought. I wasn’t picking on Brad Pitt. But that was just the association in that moment and things we make fusses about and whatever.”
Twain added, “Of course, it could have been any gorgeous guy.”
Twain also referenced the famous lyric earlier this year, when a Twitter user commented on how Pitt’s role in the movie Ad Astra features several different aspects from “That Don’t Impress Me Much,” including lines about how being a rocket scientist and having a car aren’t impressive features.
