Shania Twain Films Domestic Violence PSA for RCMP
Shania Twain is doing her part to make sure everyone has a happy and safe holiday. The songstress has filmed a domestic violence PSA, 'Sometimes Home Is Where the Hurt Is,' for the RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police), to air during the Christmas season.
"Sometimes home is where the hurt is," Twain says in the PSA. "It's really confusing to be hurt by someone you love. Whether it's physical, sexual or emotional, abuse is abuse, and it can happen in any family. You may not want to talk about it, but family violence shouldn't be kept a secret.
"You can break the silence. There's always someone who can help," she adds. "Tell someone you trust, and always report incidents of violence to the police. Because violence, especially in your own home, is never acceptable."
The 'You're Still the One' singer wrapped up her residency in Las Vegas earlier this month, which is allowing her time to work on new music.
“I am in the middle of putting the album together, and that’s very exciting,” Twain reveals. “That’s a whole new world there for me because that took a lot of courage, too. Just to really dive in there and expose my songwriting for the first time after a long time to my peers and have to sit there and get the feedback and be brave enough to do that.”
