After meeting the legendary songstress backstage at the Billboard Music Awards, Drizzy bowed to her and let her know that she is on his ink queue. “You’re very iconic,” he said. “We love you. I’m like a year away from a Celine Dion tat.”
Celine had kind words for her fellow Canadian Aubrey, too. “It’s really nice to meet you,” she said, before introducing the 6 God to her son.
This isn’t the first time that Dion has received this type of love from a Young Money MC. In March, Nicki Minaj showed her appreciation for Celine by lip-synching to “It’s All Coming Back to Me Now.”
It was a big night for Dion, who delivered a heart-wrenching performance of “My Heart Will Go On,” in honor of the iconic song’s 20th anniversary.
Meanwhile, Drizzy had a big night of his own, performing in front of Bellagio’s famous fountains and setting a new single-year record with 13 BBMA trophies. The rapper took home some of the evening’s most coveted honors, including Top Artist, Top Billboard 200 Artist, and Top Hot 100 Artist.
Celebrating his record-setting win, Mr. Graham offered these parting words: “Life is like toilet paper. Either you’re on a roll or you’re taking shit from some asshole.”
