This does impress us much!
Shania Twain has had a lengthy career on the stage, and sometimes that leads to a few accidents. The 53-year-old country singer opened up on Thursday’s Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen, revealing during a game that she had, in fact, peed herself on stage.

As for Styles, who has called Twain one of his biggest fashion inspirations, she noted, "We have met. I love him. He’s such a cutie! He’s an incredible singer. He’s a wonderful talent, and I want to work with him, so…”
