Céline Dion, the Vogue diva
With her talents as a burlesque comedian, Céline Dion hits a home run with Vogue video. The world-renowned Quebec singer proves once again that she has mastered the art of creating magical moments and is able to move us and make us laugh in a very unique way. But in real life, she does not take herself to seriously. Under her fanciful looks in the video, Celine Dion is an exceptional, gentle and funny woman. I met her a few years ago. I have never forgotten this meeting. Let me tell you the story.
I was 19 years old. I was invited to a party organized by Céline and her late husband, René, at a restaurant in Montreal. It was an evening of thanks to Céline’s musicians and I was accompanying a friend. While the guests waited for the meal, Céline walked around all the tables. We shook hands (oh, god, she has a strong handshake!) and we talked a little. I do not remember what we discussed; First, because it dates back 30 years but mostly because my hand was hurting. It’s as if it had been in a vise. And, I must say, I am not of a fragile nature. I may be a bit masochistic however, because I immediately liked her. And I have loved Céline Dion ever since. Yes, she is a talented singer (and also an excellent actress for those who don’t know), but she is also authentic despite her celebrity. The Alpha Woman model at its best; Funny, kind, strong, generous and faithful to herself and what is important in her life. All her performances carry a message of solidarity and pacifism.
In the Vogue video, she shines like a star and enjoys playing the role of a diva! I say “play” because in real life, Celine is really interested in others. She is a stage beast but also a woman of great sensitivity and she certainly does not have a diva attitude. She maintains a strong link with her roots.
I wish our paths would cross again. But this time, I would give her a kiss on the cheeks instead of shaking her hand!
Thanks for reading and following me. Stay strong, stay stylish!
