DRAKE SET TO GET A TATTOO OF CELINE DION, BUT SHE SAYS PLEASE DON’T, REALLY
So I don’t know much about Drake, aside from his being the Global Ambassador for the current NBA Champion Toronto Raptors. My real introduction to him was in the NBA playoffs, losing his mind with his (nonexistent) poker face at every single game he attended (and he attended them all). But his name and face are iconic these past few years, regardless. He’s one of those people who you know of, even if you’re not a fan. Well, or if you’re too damn old, like me. But this news cracks me up. And it should. Evidently, Drake wants to add a special tattoo to his inspiration collection. But this time, it’s of Celine Dion. And what does Celine Dion say? “Please, Drake, I love you very much. Can I tell you something? Please don’t do that.”
CANADIAN WORLD MUSIC ICONS SHARE THE LOVE, BUT CELINE SAYS NOT THE INK
So what’s the story with Drake and Celine Dion? Well, for starters, they’re both Canadians. They are both, “We the North.” Well. And they’re both iconic musical artists in their own rights. Do they know each other? I would assume that’s inevitable, to some degree. So why would Drake want to get a tattoo of Celine Dion’s face on his body? Well, in part because that’s what Drake does. Many of his tattoos are dedications to his muses and musical influences. And while I don’t know about Celine’s muse status, it’s safe to say she is an influence in music across the world.
CELINE JUST DOESN’T WANT HER FACE TO DROOP IN TWO PLACES AT ONCE, WHICH MAKES SENSE
But regardless, Celine Dion isn’t comfortable with her face on Drake’s body. But I get it. I don’t want her face on my body either. Make of that what you will. But her logic is sound. She explained, “As time goes, as you go older, you too — when time comes my face will go longer and it will go not prettier.” Ha! So there you have it. Celine doesn’t want to age in two different places. I get that. Instead, she said he should get a fake instead. Or they could go to dinner, he could come over and visit her kids, etc. So there’s love there. But aging, um, is a stretch for all. There’s no reason to double your ante.
