December 15, 2003 - The Las
Vegas Review Journal reports Shania Twain put her boot in her mouth with
an inadvertent swipe at Las Vegas during a news conference Wednesday at
the Billboard Music Awards. Asked whether she has considered doing a Las
Vegas headliner deal similar to those of Celine Dion or Elton John, Twain
ruffled some feathers with the remark, "If I ever did that, it would be
because I'm old or something." Her remark drew audible gasps from the roomful
of 50 to 60 media members. "What was so controversial about that?" said
Twain, semishocked by the negative reaction to the inference that Vegas
is a boneyard for past-their-prime entertainers.
