We all know how much Toronto rapper Drake loves him some Celine Dion. Who doesn’t anyway? Shocking thing is, some people love an artist so much that they immortalize them somehow with an ink of their face on their body. We’re still wondering if that is cool or just crazy obsession.
Well, Drake is no stranger to getting a tattoo of the “people” he admires on his body. The One Dance hitmaker once inked an image of himself standing in front of the Beatles (from their famous Abbey Road picture) on his arm. He debuted the tattoo with the caption “I got more slaps than the Beatles” to celebrate his 35th top 10 ahead of the iconic group on the Hot 100.
Two years ago at the Billboard Music Awards, the rapper reportedly told Celine he was “like a year away from a Celine Dion tatt“. Now, the singer is begging him not to do it.
In an interview with iHeartRadio in Canada the singer said; “Please Drake, I love you very much. Can I tell you something? Don’t do that.
‘You can write me love letters, you can send me autographs for my kids, you can come and visit, I can have you home for lunch or dinner, we can go for a drink, we can sing together, whatever you want to do.
‘I can talk to your mother. Whatever you want! But please, this is not the money maker over here.
‘The thing that I want to say to you is that all of us are going forward in life, and I’ve always been very thin, and as time goes and as you get older – you too when the time comes – my face will go longer and it will be not pretty.
So please don’t tattoo. If you do it, just do a fake one so you can change your mind. If it’s Nicole one day, Celine another day, Barbara one time.”
