Celine Dion recently deigned to talk to a mere mortal and the two takeaways from the conversation are: Leave her alone, and leave her alone!!!!

In an interview on The Dan Wootton Interview podcast (and reprinted by Wootton in The Sun), she of golden voice and superb earnestness said that while rumored boyfriend Pepe Munoz is not “the man in her life,” he is another man in her life. Munoz, 34, was spotted by Dion’s side during her whirlwind voyage (replete with numerous flights of fancy) through the recent Paris Fashion Week. Dion works with Munoz, a dancer, and said this of another man (who was in the room during the interview): “We’re friends, we’re best friends. Of course we hug and hold hands and go out, so people see that. I mean, he’s a gentleman. He’s giving me his hand to go out.”

But also, Dion confirmed that she is single, adding, “By the way, when I say, ‘I am single,’ please, leave me alone. Thanks.” She supposedly said this jokingly, but the message is clear.

Leave Celine alone!

Additionally, when the topic of Dion’s “slimmer frame” arose, Dion said in her simultaneously vague and specific Celinese: “If I like it, I don’t want to talk about it. Don’t bother. Don’t take a picture. If you like it, I’ll be there. If you don’t, leave me alone.”

It bears repeating: Leave Celine alone!

(Obviously, this is an impossible prospect given how preternaturally entertaining she is. But leave her alone.)

Oh, and regarding the decision to remove her No. 1 R. Kelly duet “I’m Your Angel” from streaming services, Dion said, “It’s extremely sad and we had to do what we had to do. It’s just unfortunate. That’s all.”
