A new Netflix documentary about the life of Shania Twain dropped on July 26. Titled “Not Just A Girl”, this documentary takes an intimate look inside Shania’s life, growing up in Ontario and her childhood struggles. Famously, she’s been open about what she had to endure throughout her turbulent childhood. Also detailed is the ending of her marriage to Mutt Lange. Most importantly, however, is the highlighting of the impact she’s had on other artists.
Several colleagues and famous fans appear in this documentary. Kelsea Ballerini, Lionel Richie, and Avril Lavigne are just some of the famous faces there to honor Shania Twain. “She was a trailblazer,” Richie states of her impact. “She reached through the stereo and made me feel safe when I was a young kid,” Orville Peck comments on the impact Shania had on him growing up.
Shania notes how pressures of family life caused her to lose her voice in a sort of way. She took time to raise her son Eja independently. Through the inspiration of friends like Lionel Richie, Oprah Winfrey, and Gladys Knight, among others, she regained her vitality and has returned to the force to be reckoned with that she still is.
The documentary is peppered with vignettes and highlights of her career. Featured in the doc are various clips from her most famous music videos. Entertainment news clips and shots of her at the Grammys also appear. What stands out the most are her dedicated fans who show her unconditional love and appreciation.

Don’t you hold me down
Change is gonna come
But my patience running out
Made my decision
What the dictionary’s missing
Is my definition
I’m not just a four-letter wordI’m not just a girl
Oh just a girl (hey)
I’m not just a girl
Oh just a girl
I pack my suitcases
I’m going places
I’m gonna rule the world
