Drake is famous for his interesting body art, comprised mostly of memes and inspiration from throughout his life, but his latest muse, Celine Dion isn’t so keen on being plastered on his body.
Fellow Canadian, Celine Dion told iHeartRadio Canada about her feelings on Drake’s latest tatty inspo.
“Please, Drake, I love you very much,” Dion. “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.”
But the only thing better than the fact that Queen Celine totally rejected Drake’s commemorative art is the reason why. Get this, she doesn’t want him to get her face immortalised in a tattoo because she already has a thin, elongated face and doesn’t want it to look bad as Drake ages. I mean, does it get any more on brand for Celine than that?
“As you go older—you too when the time comes—my face will go longer and it will go no prettier. So please don’t tattoo it. If you do it, just do a face one so you can change your mind.”
Celebrity tattoos are very on-brand for Drake, with his personal art collection currently depicting Rihanna eating ice cream, Denzel Washington, Aaliyah, Sade and even himself walking before The Beatles in the timeless Abbey Road shot. But Celine does not want to be a part of this party. No, thank you.
The Celine tattoo idea dates right back to 2017 when Drake first mentioned that Celine was his muse. According to Complex, he told her that he wanted to immortalise her in tattoo form at the Billboard Music Awards in 2017. Because apparently if you’re famous you can just walk up to another celebrity like it’s fucking nothing.
I imagine the two incredibly famous Canadians catch up over a cuppa and some maple syrup-drenched waffles.
“It means the world, you’re very iconic. We love you. I’m, like, a year away from a Celine tat,” the Degrassi star told Dion.
But actions speak louder than words, Drake, and I sure as hell don’t spy a Celine tatty slip with my little eye. That was 2017 and if my calculations are correct, we are currently in 2019. Still no Celine tattoo.
Honestly, I think Drake would be pretty stupid to get the tatty now, but maybe he’ll take her up on the coffee offer. I know I sure would.
