Nick Jonas Shares His 5 Favorite Songs From 'Lifetime Crush' Shania Twain

The 24-year-old singer-songwriter Nick Jonas has called Shania Twain his first celebrity crush and thanks her for “breaking barriers of genre to allow other people to think outside the box and push the envelope.” Here, his favorite tracks by the woman he calls a “true inspiration.”

“Don’t Be Stupid (You Know I Love You)” 1997
This is the first Shania song I ever heard. I remember the country-pop feel of the song was unlike anything else out there at the time, and I became a lifelong fan in that moment.

“That Don’t Impress Me Much” 1997
Shania was always so incredible at making iconic visuals for her music, as well as being cutting-edge production-wise. This video and song are, in a word, legendary.

“Forever and for Always” 2003
This song has been a major source of inspiration to me melodically. Back in the day, my brothers and I would warm up to this with our band, getting our harmonies locked in before the show.

“I’m Gonna Getcha Good!” 2002
The production and vocal performance on this are next-level. My brothers and I covered this song in 2008. I played drums and sang my favorite part, the pre-chorus, so the rest of the time I could rock out.

“You’re Still the One” 1997
I got the chance to see Shania’s Vegas show, and when she performed this song onstage with a white horse at her side, it really sealed the deal for me: Shania Twain, lifetime crush.

Maybe I was rough
Like a Kurosawa Samurai
Maybe I don’t remember
Exactly the events of that evening
Maybe I put “The” song
That made you cry like a river
Maybe I was heartless
Or so may it seem
Maybe I laughed
A mean and derisory laughter
But all I can say
Is I love you and never wanted to be anywhere
Else but with you
In our cocoon of laughter and passion
And poetic things and beautiful songs
And stupid jokes as that’s what really we are
Of coffee mornings
And happy patients as we are healers
And just you and me in a cosy warm room

otp: philippa and sheala :D

  • Who made the first move;


  • Who said ‘I love you’ first;

Sheala. “You’re being so damn frustrating, Phillipa! I love you and you keep making all these stupid choic-” she was cut off by Phillipa kissing her both out of happiness and to avoid saying it back…

  • How often they fight;

It depends on what you mean. Sometimes Phil picks fights to show affection.

  • Whose big spoon/little spoon;

Sheala is the big spoon. Even smol owl dictators to be need to be held and loved every so often.

  • What their nicknames are for each other;

Silver Fox and Grey Owl.

  • Whose the better cook;


  • Their song;

The parody of wolven storm that I’m working on, I swear.

  • Who remembers their anniversaries;

They both do.

  • Their favorite thing to do together (besides sex);

Read/work together.

  • Who ‘wears the pants’ in the relationship;

It’s a constant struggle, but Phillipa doesn’t mind letting Sheala take the lead sometimes.

  • How they would get engaged;

Phillipa would propose. Sheala would say no, and Phil would plan the wedding anyway. Sheala would give in.

  • What their wedding would be like;

Knowing Phillipa, big, elaborate, and fancy. Sheala wanted no wedding at all, but compromising knowing that their honeymoon will be just them, and full of blessed solitude. 

  • How many kids they’ll have;

None. Can you imagine? 

Move on, leave, run away, escape this place… but don’t forget about me, about us, about this town. Always remember where you come from so you can appreciate how far you’ve come.

You claim to love her, inside and out, but the only time you call her beautiful is when it’s 3 in the morning and I’ve already turned you down.
