I didn't have any of those good assets to have successful teenage years. It was hard. And what saved me was definitely my whole family. I knew where I was coming from and where I was going to.
I love beautiful things. I'm not into art so much, like paintings.
Some people can't stand being alone. I love solitude and silence. But when I come out of it, I'm a regular talking machine. It's all or nothing for me.
I have become a housewife and there is no better job.
The craziest thing I've done is cut my hair blonde and short a couple of years ago. And people reached out to me saying, 'Celine, you're one of the most stable things we have in our lives, don't do that. We want you the way you are.'
I think it bothers people to see people that are happy and successful. So they try to find what's wrong with them.
At home, we don't listen to our music-we listen to other people's music. It keeps you attached to the show business world.
I'm so centered in feeling great about me that I can give great things to my son and my husband and my family.
I looked in the audience. There were no strangers. Everybody was singing and cheering and hugging. That was a beautiful picture to look at.
I have records in gold, in platinum, I have two Oscars, I have Grammys and so on.
In terms of music, I can try anything I want, even something that doesn't work at all, because I'm not putting my career in jeopardy.
I started at 5 years old in the kitchen table with my family supporting me. I know where I'm from and I know exactly where I'm going.
Since I was a little child, my nose - I think it's too big.
I love pencil skirts, but I'm always looking for a top. And then I'm afraid, by myself, to match, to try colors. When I wear a dress, I know the top matches the bottom. So I can't make a mistake.
There's no such thing is aging, but maturing and knowledge. It's beautiful, I call that beauty.
I worked really hard, and I surpassed myself... I didn't have, visually, what it took. I was not pretty, I had teeth problems, and I was very skinny. I didn't fit the mold.
On her son Rene: Oh my God, when he's 20 years old what's going to happen to me? I'm gonna marry him.
I'll be a Quebecker-Canadian. I'm from Quebec, and every time I go to a country, I say that. It's my roots, my origins, and it's the most important thing to me.
I often buy myself presents. Sometimes I will spend $100,000 in one day in a posh boutique.
I'm not going to be Rihanna. No one can be Rihanna except for Rihanna.
