“I never felt it was right to ask me to downplay my femininity just to be respected for my art. I resented that and I thought, ‘No, in fact, I’m going to make my very first video braless—because I’m a woman, and I don’t feel like I need to strap myself down anymore, which is what I always did when I was in high school,” Twain said in a “Good Morning America” interview.
