Celine Dion is putting her infamously extravagant Florida mansion on the market, and I think if we pool all of our life savings, we can maybe afford to buy … one of the lawn chairs. The asking price for this 10,000 square-foot love nest is $72.5 million, which does seem like a lot, doesn’t it? But! When you consider what you’re getting for the money — a massage room, a movie theater, a tennis court, a simulated golfing range, an automated shoe carousel, a vast water park, an 8-room guest house, a lazy river, 400 feet of private beach, and the chance to breathe the same air as the greatest entertainer of our time, well, it starts to sound like a steal, doesn’t it? (Kidding. It is still exorbitantly expensive.) Queen Celine is reportedly selling the property because her recent decision to extend her contract at Caesar’s Palace until 2019 (hollllaaaaaa!!!) requires her to be closer to Sin City. Oh well, her loss, our gain! I’ve got, like, $400 to chip in. Let’s make this happen. [WSJ]
Get out your best power notes and pour yourself a fresh cup of Tim Hortons, because Grammy-winning singer Celine Dion is finally, officially on Twitter.
The 44-year-old singer tweeted her first message only a handful of hours to go, which already reads like she has a better grasp on the social media platform than Cher — but probably not as well as, say, Rob Delaney. Read more at Celebuzz…
How would it sound if Celine Dion sang “Total Eclipse of the Heart”? What if she sang it and then passed the song off to Adele, who then passed it off to Barbra Streisand, Christina Aguilera and Shakira? Singer Christina Bianco has a show called “Diva Impressions,” and during a recent performance she sang the classic Bonnie Tyler hit as 19 different famous singers. Her Zooey Deschanel is so spot on. The whole thing is pitch perfect. [YouTube]
“Communication. A very good girlfriend talked to me about the real meaning of communication, the right way to communicate and really properly communicate on an equal and respectful level. It changed the way [Rene and I] related to each other… It’s a lesson that every married couple should know to hold their relationship together.”
– Celine Dion, who has been married to her manager Rene Angelil for nearly 20 years, revealed to Vegas Deluxe that up until seven years ago, she and Rene “weren’t communicating properly.” Celine may be one of the richest, most famous women on the planet, but just like the rest of us, sometimes she needs a dose of straight talk from a girlfriend to get her life in order. Glad to hear that she and Rene are stronger than ever (and also that they have extended her Vegas contract to 2019 — I’m hoping to see her show at least 20 more times!). [People]
God, I love the internet. Some brilliant person out in the world took footage of Celine Dion rocking out at one of her French concerts and swapped out the audio for Daft Punk’s new hit single, “Get Lucky.” You will not believe how perfectly they match up. Also, if you’ve never seen Celine dance, well, prepare to be amazed. [YouTube via Gawker]
It’s Celine Dion’s birthday tomorrow, and not a day goes by that I don’t thank the sweet lord that this woman was born. Celine Dion is awesome, and if you don’t agree with me, well, read on for 20 compelling reasons to love her, illustrated by some of my favorite Celine GIFs… Keep reading »
Dear Jacek Korolko AKA The Guy Who Was Fined For Blasting Celine Dion Songs,
My love for Celine Dion is well documented, but it’s tough for me to find men who appreciate her majestic vocal stylings as much as I do. My current boyfriend, for example, could sum up his feelings about Celine Dion with a shrug and a “meh,” which upsets me to no end. You, on the other hand, obviously share my passion for Queen Celine, because you were recently fined £1,300 (nearly $2,000) for blasting her songs at high volume at your apartment complex in Bristol, England. Apparently your neighbors have been “very distressed at the unreasonable volume of music played often late at night,” but let me tell you something: your neighbors are idiots. Move in with me, and we’ll crank up the volume to “The Power Of Love” until all the windows shatter.
‘Cause I’m your lady,
After getting an email announcing that The Weezer Cruise is making its triumphant return in 2014, we got to thinking about celebrity cruises. Everyone from Kate Gosselin to Kenny G has been taking their act to the high seas, but we have yet to see some of our favorite celebs get in on the action (Chavril, where are you?!). Grab your bedazzled bikini and click on the gallery to check out seven imagined celebrity cruises that we really wish were real….
Yesterday, The Frisky’s Official Celine Dion Fan Winona posted an awesome Celine look, and reader bettyb said she was craving Celine’s shoes. We feel you. But! Since Celine is, well, Celine we figure her shoes are pretty unaffordable. If we had to guess, we’d say she’s wearing either a pair of $450 Burberry pumps or a $557 pair of Guccis . But who has the cash for that? After the jump, we give you the whole look — including Celine’s to-die-for Jil Sander coat — for way less.
