Her marriage and her health suffered, but she's back and she's stronger than ever.
The world has truly missed Shania Twain. After fifteen years, she's returning with a brand new album - but her time away from music has certainly not been a relaxing one. She opens up about her health struggles and heartbreak in an emotional new interview as she makes a comeback.

Lots of musicians take time away from their careers to focus on their personal life, but for this 52-year-old songstress that was the last thing she has wanted to do the past decade and a half. She was forced to quit performing in 2004, just two years after her last album 'Up!' due to problems with her vocal chords. She had originally thought the issues were down to becoming a mother to her son Eja but she was later diagnosed with dysphonia, which she has blamed on her contraction of Lyme Disease.

Piers Morgan has criticised the US government for quailing under pressure from the gun lobby. Morgan delivered an impassioned speech on the last episode of his CNN show 'Piers Morgan Live'.
Piers Morgan ended his three year run on his CNN talk show Piers Morgan Live on Friday (28th March) with a plea to the US government to change "the absurd gun laws".Morgan's show was cancelled following low ratings and possibly his involvement in the phone hacking scandal, nevertheless he left the show on a somewhat controversial note.
Morgan, ever controversial, used his final show as an opportunity to comment on the social and political implications of gun laws in the US. He referenced recent tragedies in which guns were used to kill large numbers of people which prompted criticism of gun laws in the US and worldwide.
Morgan has spent a number of years in the states over the past decade and described gun violence, such as that displayed in the Connecticut Sandy Hook massacre and the Colorado Aurora Cinema, as "a disease that infects every aspect of American life". Referencing these attacks Morgan said, as The Independent reports: "I assumed that after 70 people were shot in a movie theatre and then just a few months later 20 first-graders were murdered with an assault rifle in an elementary school, that the absurd gun laws in this country would change, but nothing has happened".

Multi Grammy winning country star Shania Twain beams and waves as she is snapped by photographers on the red carpet at Cirque du Soleil's 'One Night for One Drop' charity event at the Bellagio Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.
It's been too long for Shania Twain, but her return to the live circuit at on the opening night of her two-year residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace on Saturday in Las Vegas brought about a reaction akin to that of her debut, CBC News reports.
Emotional at her overwhelmingly warm response, no doubt from those either euphoric over their big casino-win, or nearly passed out from alcohol over their bad luck on the slots, Twain addressed the crowd, dabbing the tears from her eyes. "Thank you. Thank you so much -- you guys are going to get me all emotional, and then my eyelashes are going to fall off," she said. "This is a very overwhelming night.... It's been a lot of years for me since I've been here. I realize what I've been missing, thanks to you." Later on, she asked halfway through her set, "You guys having a good time so far?" and after the cheers, said, "I hope so, 'cause that's the only reason I do this.... Otherwise I would just stay on my lonesome and sing."
Performing at the Colosseum - a high-ceilinged, 4,298-seat modern replica of the Roman architectural marvel - inside sprawling Caesars Palace, Twain's show featured no shortage of set pieces. She first sent a jolt through the crowd by charging onstage on the back of a black stallion before launching into a rowdy rendition of Ain't No Quitter with the stage decorated to look like a Wild West saloon.
