She Stopped By WWHL

Imagine a world without "My Heart Will Go On." No pipes that immediately conjure up images of Leonard DiCaprio and Kate Winslet at their most beautiful, falling in deeply tragic love. No song that will make you belt out its cheesy lyrics no matter where you are. A million karaoke singers' dreams would be crushed before they could even begin.

While Celine Dion has built up an incredible body of work as one of the great pop divas, the Titanic love ballad is definitely her most popular work.

A World Without 'My Heart Will Go On'

Shockingly, that song almost didn't get made. While she was a guest on Andy Cohen's Watch What Happens Live, Dion explained that she almost passed on the song.

"It didn’t appeal to me. I was probably very tired that day — very tired. My husband said, ‘Let’s hold on.’ He talked to the writer and he said, ‘Let’s try to make it, like, a little demo.’ I sang the song once and they built the orchestra around it. I never re-sang it for the recording. So the demo is the actual recording. But after that, I’ve sang it about 3 gazillion times."

Can you imagine?!

Is She Open To Dating Again?

While she was dishing hot goss with Cohen, Dion admitted that she was still in love with her late husband, René Angélil, and that she wasn't sure if dating was in her future.

"You’re supposed to ask one question. I don’t date. I don’t have a boyfriend. And, you know, it doesn’t mean that I will not find someone in my life. If I do, that will be great. If I don’t, that will be great.

I’m still in love. I mean, once you’re in love so much, I’ve been living all my life with René, he’s still within me. I see him through the eyes of my children every day. I’m so passionate about life and I’m so lucky to have my three beautiful sons.

"“If I would have someone in my life, I would tell you because I’ve been an open book all my life. But if I do, I’ll come back and I’ll talk to you about it."

Just Friends

Dion also addressed the rumors that she was dating her longtime friend, Pepe Munoz, and promptly put them to bed.

"I was not surprised. It’s just that…because we’re best friends, we’re in show business and the tabloids and this industry is made for that. ‘Oh, that’s the way that best friends hold hands? Nuh-uh.’ He is my best friend and we have a good time together. It feels like today, you cannot have a man holding your hand. They didn’t know anything about [Pepe]…They started things. Until one day I said, ‘He’s gay, he’s not my boyfriend. He’s gay, calm down. I’m not trying to hide here. Everything’s cool.’ But we can hold hands! We can go to the movies and restaurants. Calm down, people!"
