WATCH: Celine Dion pleads to Drake not to get tattoo of her face
Celine Dion asked Drake to not get a tattoo of her face, after she was reminded of the rapper’s supposed intent to have her image inked on his torso.
Drake was said to have told Dion of his plan while they were at the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas, United States back in 2017, as per Billboard last Thursday, Sept. 19. He currently has tattoos of other artists such as Rihanna, Lil Wayne and The Beatles.
Dion made the request when the rapper’s idea was brought up in her interview with iHeart Radio Canada on Wednesday, Sept. 18, as seen in a video posted at the radio network’s YouTube channel on the same day.
“Please Drake, I love you very much,” Dion said in the interview. “Can I tell you something? Don’t do that.”
She mentioned some alternatives to getting a tattoo such as writing her love letters, sending her autographs for her kids, visiting her home for a meal and singing together.
“Whatever you want to do. I can talk to your mother,” she stated. “Whatever you want, but please.”
Dion added that her face was not her moneymaker, and pointed out that a tattoo of her face on the rapper’s body would not age well.
“As you go older – you too when time comes – my face will go longer and it will go no prettier,” she said. “So please don’t tattoo.”
Dion then advised the rapper to get a fake tattoo if he decides to push through with his plan, in case he changes his mind about bearing a permanent image of her. Ryan Arcadio/JB
