‘I’m doing fantastic’: Seemingly drunk Shania Twain shows up at Preds game

Canadian country star Shania Twain might have had a bit of a headache Monday morning.
The singer was in the crowd Sunday night during Game 6 of the Stanley Cup finals between the Nashville Predators and the Pittsburgh Penguins.
During a break in the action, Twain spoke to Hockey Night in Canada’s Scott Oake and her appearance quickly set Twitter and Facebook ablaze, with many users joking about her, er, enthusiastic segment.
Sporting sunglasses and a Supreme sweatshirt, the Timmins, Ont. native appeared to have sipped one too many beers. Our favourite description came from Twitter user @theeKMc, who dubbed her: “Tipsy McStagger.”
“I’m doing fantastic,” Twain boasted. “I mean it’s Hockey Night in Canada, it’s amazing. I’m so proud of our sport... Here I am in Nashville and all these years later and I’m seeing these people out here embracing hockey and if I’ve counted right, I think there’s 30 of our Canadian players on these two teams tonight.
“When I came to Nashville, there wasn’t even a hockey team here and then all of a sudden there was hockey and there were just a few spectators here and now look at this. This is a genuine Stanley Cup event, where everybody is just into the spirit of it and I feel really proud... Our national sport is infectious and Nashville has the bug.”
“Great to see Shania Twain's last ever TV interview,” comedian Gerry Dee tweeted.
Former Amazing Race Canada contestant Ashley Callingbull praised the Grammy-winner, “Shania Twain's interview at the playoff game [crying emoji] still love her though. Actually... I might love her more now.”
Actually, we second that statement.
Twain will release her first album in 15 years this August. Titled Now, the first single "Life’s About to Get Good" will drop June 16.
