Shania Twain Superfan’s Obsession Has Taken Over Her Life
When Shania Twain‘s music video for ‘That Don’t Impress Me Much’ was released, it impressed a lot of people — that includes superfan Saskia Vese, who now is downright obsessed with the country star.
The 32-year-old fan tells Daily Mail, “When I saw the video for ‘That Don’t Impress Me Much,’ I was amazed. People were obsessed with the fact she dared to show her midriff, which was very unusual for a country and western star at the time.”
Instead of just listening to Twain’s music and plastering posters on her walls like many fans, Vese went the next step (or leap) further and began building a huge collection of outfits mirroring the star. She also started up a tribute act, even hiring a voice coach to make her vocals emulate Twain.
But that’s not all.
“When I meet people I didn’t know, I introduce myself as Shania,” Vese admits. “I’ve even begged my mum to call me Shania too. She just laughs at me and refuses, though.”
The ones who aren’t laughing, of course, are her ex-boyfriends. The Twain wannabe explains, “With every boyfriend I’ve had, there came a point where there were three people in the relationship. I suppose men want to feel as if they’re at the center of my attention, but I’ve never been able to give them that because I’m too creative and driven.”
With thousands of dollars invested into her outfits, Twain merchandise such as mugs and table mats and the loss of a few relationships, it’s safe to say that this obsession has taken over Vese’s life.
Next, she plans to head to Las Vegas to catch one of the songstress’ shows, but there will only be one true Shania in the house — with a close look-alike in the stands.
