An Exclusive Chat With Céline Dion on Her New Beauty and the Beast track
The Las Vegas headliner's thoughts on her new song, family time at Disney theme parks and more.

Image

Disney’s “tale as old as time” is back in theaters this week with the live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast. Las Vegas headliner Céline Dion recorded the animated movie’s titular song for the original soundtrack in 1991, and it became one of her signature hits.

Now, 26 years later, Dion has again lent her legendary pipes to the House of Mouse for “How Does a Moment Last Forever,” one of the original songs included on the recent release’s soundtrack. Before you hear the track while watching the credits roll, read on for Dion’s thoughts on the song, family time at Disney theme parks and more.

Did your kids see the movie yet?

Not yet … but I can’t wait to see it again with them.

What do they think when they hear you in a film?

Well, actually, when [16-year-old] R.C. was 2 or 3 years old, he was getting pretty emotional when he heard my voice. I couldn’t sing around the house. My [6-year-old] twins are the same. And now, every time they hear a girl sing, whether it be any female voice singing, they look at me and ask: “Is that you singing?” I don’t know if it is because they do not want me to be in the room when they listen to me. … So they ask, and every time I answer “Yes, it’s me” … or, “No, it’s not.” It’s interesting … They are so wonderful. Both Nelson and Eddy play instruments—they play piano. They have great voices, and I think Nelson will be a singer.

Since the first song became so iconic, was there any pressure about replicating or not replicating the past?

At first, yes, absolutely. … I am still very much in love with my first “Beauty and the Beast.” It put me where I am today. It was such an iconic moment, still is and will be for the rest of my life. When I heard they were doing Beauty and the Beast again, I asked myself why. But then I saw the new version with real characters, and it was totally another type of feeling.

So I really didn’t feel any pressure, in a way, because it was not the same song. And I am now very honored to be part of this.



Take us back to the mindset you were in when you recorded the original song, compared to now. How have the emotions changed? How have you changed?

Well, the first time I did “Beauty and the Beast,” it was at the beginning of my career. And it was a duet with Peabo Bryson, whom I still admire a great deal today. And I think of him often, especially now, and I thank him again for allowing me to sing that song with him.

Now, with this new song, my emotions have changed. Life changes—you grow, you get older, you get more mature. You have more life experience. I am a mum … so it changes my whole way of seeing things.

We’ve seen that you enjoy lots of Disney theme-park time with your family. What’s your favorite ride?

Every single one of them! When I go to Disney with my family, I reconnect with the child in me. Who doesn’t?

I have so much respect for Therese - she is a truly inspirational woman. Happy birthday, may she be blessed with many more years.



You can tell how much Céline adores her mum.

Celine Dion Talks About Her 'Titanic' Sweatshirt

Image

The songstress breaks her silence on the iconic look that broke the social sphere.

Celine Dion's stylist Law Roach, No. 21 on THR's Top 25 Stylists, is credited with putting the 48-year-old star back on fashion's radar — all starting with last July’s Paris Haute Couture fashion parade (Christian Dior, Giambattista Valli, Gucci), followed by countless fierce/statement-making styles.

Perhaps the most photographed look — and viral moment — of all was a Titanic sweatshirt by Vetements, which Dion teamed with skinny distressed jeans and gold Gucci sandals. The hoodie, emblazoned with Jack Dawson and Rose DeWitt Bukater (aka Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet), not only rocked social media, but also won the songstress' affections. "Law has changed me 65 times a day, but one of my favorites was the Titanic sweatshirt," Dion tells THR.

Says Roach, "I had the idea to put her in the Titanic sweatshirt because this year marks the movie’s 20th anniversary. I thought it would be so cool, but I was afraid she’d think it was corny. When I actually pulled it out and showed it to her, Celine snatched it up and threw it on. She was like, 'Man, this is cool.' "

Dion says she's incredibly proud of her work on 1997's Titianic hit single "My Heart Will Go On" because it helped get her where she is today. "My mother saw me [wearing the sweatshirt] and she said, 'Oh my god, this is way too big for you!' and she asked, 'Since when are you wearing clothes that are too big for you?’ She did not understand that it was cool!" laughs Dion.

The Los Angeles-based stylist, who also works with Zendaya, 20, and Ariana Grande, 23, pulled the $885 oversized streetwear from the designer’s archives because it was sold out. "He took it away from me!" exclaims Dion of having to return the hooded sweatshirt right after wearing it. Dion’s impassioned plea to Vetement’s designer Demna Gvasalia: "Please send it back!"

You can watch the Celine parts of The Voice here for one of the battles: https://vimeo.com/209367979

She would be SUCH an awesome coach. And also, what great press she's receiving - I truly believe that she's the most revered female vocalist alive, the love and adulation that people show her is just inspiring.

To her credit, she didn't want to stop, decided against it and then she gets asked about someone else :lol:

15 years ago today, A New Day Has Come was released...

Image

For my money, it's her most slickly produced record - it was one of the first albums I owned personally [as a 13 year old young boy!] and I have been in love with her music since. The album will forever hold a special place in my heart - it's one of the finest pop albums ever released IMO.
