Beyoncé Got Parenting Tips From Céline Dion

Hey, ladies with accented letters in their name have to stick together, eh? (That’s a Canadian tip of that hat for you, Céline!) Apparently Beyoncé got advice on how to interact with Blue Ivy from none other than the Quebecoise queen who was the reason I started teaching myself French when I was 12 and whose albums (up until Let’s Talk About Love, that is – I’m a purist) I still have in my iTunes WITHOUT SHAME.

Appearing on ITV’s Daybreak – which I used to watch every morning while writing these very stories for you all when I was back home in the UK -  Bey opened up again about motherhood, yada yada (via Digital Spy):

“I have a mommy voice. I keep my Beyoncé voice for the stage and I have my simple mommy voice,” she told ITV’s Daybreak. “I remember hearing a story about Celine Dion and she was like, ‘When I sing my… son cried’. And that’s so interesting.

“She has the most beautiful voice in the world and she’s like, ‘He hates it’. So I say, well, maybe I’ll just give a little simple nursery rhyme voice to my daughter.”

Beyoncé also admitted that she often feels under “a lot of pressure” in her career, but enjoys being a public figure that women can look up to.

“I can handle it, at least most of the time,” she said. “There’s a lot of people look up to me and I do respect that. Especially women. I feel we need each other so much and we need to know how powerful we are. So that’s really my message. Take care of your business, have your dreams, have your goals and know that it is possible, be the leader, be the president.”

Man, Beyoncé really loves encouraging women towards the presidency, doesn’t she? Which, you know, fair enough. Clinton 2016, etc.  I respect Beyoncé cos she does her thing, but looking up to her is a stretch. I did, however, look up to Céline Dion as a pre-teen with aspirations of stardom. I mean, how could you not?

Quotables: Celine Dion Loves Adele. But No, Really.

“I love literally everything about her. I love her extreme talent. I love her writing. Her songs come from the soul. She’s incredibly beautiful. I think it’s very refreshing to see, and don’t get me wrong when I say this, somebody who is not looking extremely anorexic. I know for a fact, as much as you do, that the music industry makes kids get sick. So we’re not going to go further on that, but you know what I mean. She is going to help us, she’s going to help the world. It’s going to be bad when I meet her. I’m going to give her the biggest hug. I’m not kidding.”

- Celine Dion has strong feelings for Adele. Stars, they’re just like us!

I’ve never really liked Celine Dion, not because of anything she’s done to me personally, but because I’m just not all that invested in her. She has a lovely voice, obviously, and “My Heart Will Go On” was one of the songs I used to sing at my bus stop in middle school when I thought no one could hear me (they could, young Emily, they could), but … eh. She gets a big ol’ gold star for this one though. “She’s going to help us, she’s going to help the world.” I actually teared up a little bit at that.

And just because our dear Adele hasn’t been doing much out and about, what with her growing a baby and all, let’s just take a quick moment to remind ourselves why she’s the best:

What a remarkable way to start the morning, right?
