Shania Twain felt like ‘science fiction’.
Shania Twain's medical history hasn't been very forgiving, with diagnoses ranging from Lyme disease to open throat surgery.
The country-pop singer said in a recent interview with UK outlet Mirror that not even living near Lake Geneva in Switzerland could shield her from medical issues; she had to be taken to a hospital in a helicopter when she developed COVID pneumonia and was unable to breathe normally.
“It was progressively getting worse,” Twain said. “My vital signs were getting worse… and in the end I had to be air evacuated.”
“It was like science fiction, I felt like I was going to another planet or something,” she added. “It all kind of happened in slow motion.”
After regaining her health, Twain resumed writing songs, some of which will appear on her upcoming album Queen of Me.
