Shania Twain Reacts To Supreme Court's DOMA Decision

Shania Twain was one of the many celebrities to hit Twitter in order to celebrate the Supreme Court's decision to strike down the Defense of Marriage Act [DOMA].

"Congratulations to everyone celebrating #equality today in the U.S. #loveislove"

The 5-4 ruling by the court gives legally married same-sex couples the same federal rights as heterosexual couples.

Twain is one of the few country stars to speak out in favor of same-sex marriage - with the most vocal being Carrie Underwood, who told the Independent that having such opinions can lead to alienating fans:

"It's scary," she said. "It's scary to have a platform and have people listening to you. At some point, you are going to say something that a lot of people consider to be not so right to them."
