Celine Dion Emaciated in Haute Couture Designs Brings Justin Bieber-Like Bombast to New Single


Celine Dion looks like she needs a cheeseburger, even an Impossible Cheeseburger, in her new video. It’s called “Imperfections,” but Celine poses in dozens of haute couture outfits and is filmed in rich black and white to indicate she has no imperfections. I don’t get it. Maybe her fans will. If the camera adds ten pounds, then in real life (if there is such a thing) Celine needs help.

I’ll say this: the director, Gabriel Coutu-Dumont, has re-created Irving Penn to absolute perfection. All you Celine Dion fans should look up Penn’s work to see what the original looked like. If Kate McKinnon doesn’t do a parody of this video TODAY I will be disappointed.

The song is produced like something from Justin Bieber’s last album with those bird sounds. Apparently she released four new songs last week from an album that will be called “Courage.” They are all full of bombastic over production. I know I’m in the minority here. I never understood her popularity. And it’s all coming back to me now.
