Celine Dion Says She's 'Doing Okay' After Mother Therese's Death

Celine Dion updated fans on how she was doing since it was announced that her mother, Thérèse Tanguay Dion, had passed away the night before.

“I’m pretty sure that you heard the news about my mom passing away early this morning,” the legendary singer told the crowd during her concert at the American Airlines Arena in Miami. “But I’m doing okay.”

Celine continued, “My mom was 92. She was ill for quite a while. And we knew she wouldn’t be with us long. Two days ago, we got a call from the nurses who were taking care of her so well, saying that her time was coming soon. Very soon. So last night, I joined my brothers and sisters in Montreal and I spent the evening at her bedside.”

“We told stories. We sang songs. We hugged each other. And we said our goodbyes,” she shared with her fans. “We are pretty sure that mom waited for us to be all together before [she passed].”

Earlier in the day, Celine shared a touching tribute to her mom on Instagram.

Heidi Klum Responds Following Criticism of Her Comments About Gabrielle Union's Firing

Heidi Klum Responds Following Criticism of Her Comments About Gabrielle Union's Firing

Heidi Klum is responding to criticism of her comments about Gabrielle Union‘s firing from America’s Got Talent.

Some fans thought Heidi, who was a judge on the show for six seasons, was negating Gabrielle‘s experience in her comments.

“Recently, a reporter asked me to share my thoughts about Gabrielle Union’s experiences while working as a judge on America’s Got Talent. I told the reporter that I had not experienced similar issues while I was a judge on the show — my experience was a positive one. I can only speak of my own truth, and by no means is that meant to negate or question Gabrielle’s truth,” Heidi told People.

She continued, “I am aware that my experience may not be the same as Gabrielle’s. What I can tell you is that I am a fierce advocate for all people, no matter their race, age, religion, gender or sexuality. Everyone should be treated equally and with utmost respect.”

“Personally, I have experienced very hurtful things while being married to a man of color and having three beautiful children with him. While everyone’s challenges are different, I want nothing more than for a just world and for people to be kinder to one another,” Heidi concluded.

Zoe Kravitz Reveals Why She Said Yes to Playing Catwoman

Zoe Kravitz Reveals Why She Said Yes to Playing Catwoman

Zoe Kravitz is opening up about what drove her to take on the role of Catwoman in The Batman!

The 31-year-old actress explained the she said yes to the role because of Catwoman’s “really strong femininity.”

“I think Catwoman, Selina Kyle represents really strong femininity, and I’m excited to dive into that,” Zoe explained during the Winter Television Critics Association Press Tour (via Variety).

She added, “I think femininity represents power, and I think it’s a different kind of power than masculine power. That’s something that’s really interesting about Batman and Catwoman. I think Batman represents a very kind of masculine power, and Catwoman represents very feminine power — slightly more complicated, and softer, too. I like the idea that you can be soft, you can be gentle and still be very powerful and still be very dangerous.”

The Batman is set to hit theaters on June 25, 2021.
