We often hear the phrase "the show must go on," and when you're one of the biggest artists in the world, this applies to you all the time.  

For Shania Twain, never interrupting a show to handle other business meant she's had to endure a few embarrassing moments while on stage.

For so long, the country star has shied away from discussing those incidents, but she finally gave in while on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.

While playing a game of "That Does Impress Me Much" with Cohen and fellow guest Patricia Arquette, Twain got a bit candid about the not so glamorous side of superstardom, revealing that she has peed herself on stage many times.

"I am on stage all the time," the 53-year-old admitted. "I have peed myself on stage. The show must go on!"

It's unclear if fans who were positioned front and center were able to detect that the Real Country judge had an accident, but there have been times when Twain was very good at covering it up.

She went into detail about one particular show, where she peed herself and had to think of a quick solution before any of the concertgoers suspected a thing.

"I was very clever in this one moment," Twain said. "I stood up from my chair to get up and sing, I peed myself, and the puddle? I just knocked my glass of water over."

"I was wearing a skirt, thank goodness," she continued. "I stood up, it all came out, I was dry and the glass of water [was] on the seat. I think when you're dyslexic you think ahead of these things."

Twain just doesn't seem to have much luck with accessing bathrooms, judging by another story she shared about a really embarrassing moment she experienced while in Rome.

"I was in Rome with my husband and the room was [tiny]," Twain said. "I went to bed naked that night, and I have to go for a pee so I open up the wrong door, and I ended up in the hallway. I'm knocking on the door [like], "˜Let me in!' [My husband was] like, "˜What are you doing out there?' I said, "˜Well, I was sure the bathroom was here.'"

Well, peeing yourself isn't exactly the best feeling, but it's nice that Twain can look back at those moments and laugh about it now.
