DISGUSTING: Quadriplegic dumped from wheelchair by Florida deputy who didn't believe he was handicapped. The deputy has not been terminated, but has been suspended without pay pending the outcome of an investigation.
Says Celine: "I want him to be successful as a human being. I want my son to be able to talk to me. I’m with him, I wanted that son. If he’s a gay person, he’s not any less of my son, or any less happy for that."
She's also amused by her drag impersonators: "I do look at what they do. Actually sometimes they make me laugh backstage, they put my stuff on and they do my gestures, and they try to make me laugh. It works!"
And if you missed last week's post on why she's amazing, here it is.
Thank Rich at FourFour for this trip into the world of Dion, culled from her new DVD.
Rich writes: "...it's very easy for someone known as the Queen of Bland to knock you on your ass with her singular bizarreness. Last month, Céline released a 2-DVD set devoted to her just-wrapped stint in Las Vegas, the soul-robbingly successful, Cirque du Soleil-inspired A New Day... schmaltzfest. In addition to the show itself, there are feature-length (seriously!) documentaries on the making of the production, her fans and a real-time look at what goes on backstage as A New Day... unfurls. All are never less than fascinating, mostly because Céline Dion is a fucking spaz. There's almost a druggy effect due to her aforementioned goody-goody rep: watching this stuff, I felt high because I could not believe that boring old Céline was capable of being such a ball of weirdness. Her M.O.R. reputation is hilarious because she is, in fact, all over the road." More at FourFour.
