Dion consulted husband's painting before singing for Beauty

Celine Dion and her late husband

In her first United Kingdom interview in seven years, Celine Dion spoke to Bizarre's Dan Wootton about her upcoming European tour, and about the love of her life, late husband René Angélil.

'I proved to Rene that he was there for me and I'm going to be there for him; and I'm still there for him'. So what's happened is I got myself a huge bed and I sleep with my twins. "I took care of him the best way I could". I need them. I need them close. "You gave so much; you don't deserve that". But we watch a lot of TV together.

Meanwhile, she said, the boys draw comfort from her strength. "I couldn't say yes right away, because I felt like I was kind of cheating in a way".

"We kiss him every night", Dion said. We have a little ritual where we say goodnight to him with a little picture and all that. I miss him as a partner, like the man I chose, embraced, like the man with whom I made love ... "And they write words, put them in balloons and we send the balloons to the sky".

Despite the fact that her recording of the original pop version of "Beauty and the Beast" (alongside Peabo Bryson) helped thrust her into worldwide superstardom, French-Canadian fever dream Céline Dion was torn when asked to record a new song for the 2017 remake. After her husband had died a little over a year ago to throat cancer, the infamous "My Heart Will Go On" singer shared her perspective on what it would be like to get back in the dating world. (Oh, one thing I did understand during the show was her admission that Angélil was the only man she'd ever "known", presumably in the biblical sense.) In that same interview, Dion said she "will probably grieve for the rest of my life". "I am definitely in love with him, married to him", she told The Sun.

'What a fighter, what a writer, what a vocalist - and her creativity is freaking me out'. He's the love of my life.

Céline Dion: always in love with René, she does not see herself in a couple with anotherRene Angelil was the only man of his life: hard for Celine Dion to imagine on the arm of another. I am definitely in love with [René], married to him.
