Shania Twain is back and is proving she's still the one, but a recent photoshoot for UK's The Times Sunday Style has sparked some backlash.

The "Waking up Dreaming" singer posted a photo from the shoot on Instagram earlier this week.

In the photo, Twain wore cheetah print (of course), some exotic tights and a little black number.

She was accompanied by "icon" Ruby—a hawk.

She captioned the post:

"Listen - I'm an icon, we all know that."

She added a laughing emoji.

"But the real icon from my shoot with @thestyle is obviously RUBY!"

However, according to many fans' comments, that don't impress them much.

Many commented on Twain's coat, but most were outraged she posed with a captive bird.
