Maybe it's not given to everybody to discover this thing." "I think the music industry changed. Listening to some music at home from Britney Spears and to Destiny's Child, which is a positive and great thing, but the rap thing, I'm a little afraid of this. I mean, I like the beat. It's good. But sometimes I have to be careful about the lyrics." "I think we have a great album. I feel like I have things to sing about. I definitely feel that this album took the least of my voice, but more of my soul and even more of my heart-everything was relaxed and soft." "I think we stopped wanting the future too much." "I want to be more successful as a mother than I am in show business." "I was 14 years old. I was with my mother. It was my first French TV show and very nerve-racking. I didn't really rehearse. I did my vocal exercises, but I didn't have a lot of training." "I was looking forward to seeing my husband and having a life and maybe trying to have a little child and have no schedule, no training, no discipline."

"I went crazy about what I was going to wear, which is ridiculous because I should be concerned about what I am going to sing!" "I went to a Berlitz school for two months, every day, nine to five. It was very intensive. I was not speaking the language fluently; singing it was a little bit easier. But it was scary to do an English interview. What am I going to do if I don't understand?"

"I will never be the same." "I will perform My Heart Will Go On for the rest of my life and it will always remain a very emotional experience for me." "I wish we were all naked all of the time. I get so sick of the way we've become obsessed with image. Who's wearing what, why someone has their hair cut in this way, who has reinvented themselves and why? Today everything's always about looks, good looks and fashionable clothes." "I won't have to fly anywhere for while. I'll do my show every night and come home to my son and my husband every evening.

"I'm flattered when they take the time to impersonate you. I think it's a good sign." "I'm going to go to New York, take the plane and never come back.

I love to sing. I mean, it's not a new thing. It's part of me. I love to be here and see my friends again and that's great." "I've always believed it's what's underneath that counts. If we were all forced to be naked then perhaps we would start to see that a little bit more." "I've had time to be sick for the first time in 18 years. There's been no worrying about schedules, no vocal training. I can let myself laugh without worrying about irritating my voice, and I can scream when I'm happy." "I've never been cool-and I don't care." "I've seen diapers. And believe me, my mother is right. What's in the pooh-pooh is like the Bible. The truth is in there." "If I could, I would have 14 kids like my parents had. But I think I'm a little late for that." "If people need a partner, a helping hand, to cry, to dance, whatever it is, I want it to be like a little shoulder to lean on. As we all know, the world is going through a lot." "If the opportunity comes to do a really great movie, I would like that. By then, I'm almost 40 years old." "If you begin to ask: Why we, why that, everything, then you become crazy. Don't be passive, don't give up and don't say: Now I have this thing in me, and it will kill me." "If you don't hear from me again, you'll know I'll be happy because I'll have my family." "If you want it so bad, it gets easier. You go to New York for two weeks, and you relax. And you give yourself shot after shot after shot and blood tests. The doctor every day. For some people, it might be very hard." "In the age of 15 I recorded two German songs, I liked it. German is like a big piece of wood for a fireplace, very strong, very beautiful. It's super for a powerful love song." "In vitro... it's a long process, a lot of patience. It involves a lot of shots. I'm 33 years old." "Isn't it amazing that we always have to be heroes? Like, it's okay to say, Mommy is scared. Mommy is hurt. Mommy is tired." "It was Florida and it was Montreal. I listened to music, I watched TV, I watched the others perform, I listened to some other people's music, and I gave space to hear life." "It was so touching to see the two men of my life embracing." "It was very emotional to be home and do one last farewell show. I was going on to my new life, which was very important for me." "It's children. It's human being. It's love. It's making a difference in somebody's life." "It's our room, 200 shows per year, five shows a week, and... 60 performers on stage." "It's the moment you think you can't that you realize you can." "James Cameron didn't want to have any songs in this movie. The composer James Horner wrote that song without him knowing. So we did a demo, and the demo became the record. I never re-sang the song. They built the orchestra around it. I'm glad James Cameron changed his mind." "Look at Catherine Zeta Jones and Michael Douglas. She's a clever girl, because like me, she knows that an older man has time to love and nurture you." "Love is kitschy!" "Maybe I've done it-for 20 years I've done it so much that I still hear it and it still feeds me very well." "Maybe we do some intimate shows here and there, something unplugged, something light." "Maybe we'll try for another child with more IVF." "Meal is often a ceremony at us in order to get the right people together to a table. Otherwise I eat what does well to me." "My body is my friend."

And Vegas will end, he'll be 5 years old." "My husband and me retired for two years, so that there will be less talking about us and my weight." "My husband got ill almost three years ago. He got cancer. And he needed me more than before." "My husband Rene and I were recently out for dinner in Berlin. Sausages with sauerkraut and such things. Yummy, but nevertheless they laid heavily in the stomach." "My mom was 41 when I was born." "My real dream came true. We had a son." "No sophisticated time schedule anymore, that is something marvelous. Just cooking noodles, cultivating tomatoes, playing golf, lying in bed, eating chips with ketchup and spooning up peanut butter directly from the glass." "Nobody said it was going to be easy. But I want to be successful as a mother. No matter what I have to do. There's not even a decision. I'm not even going to think about it." "Not every song is a big ballad, but every song is as powerful." "Of course I hope the album is going to be as successful for the record company as the one before. I'm certainly not going to give any less; if anything, I have more to give, because I have something new to talk about." "People used to laugh and call me vampire because I had these big teeth like fangs." "People who do such bad things in the world-they're probably not around kids a lot." "Rene actually has no good voice for singing, more like a godfather in a mafia movie: low, hoarse like a rasp. But very sexy-like his feet. Yes, sir!" "Rene isn't interested in fashion. What I like he likes, too! We don't love each other for what we are wearing." "Rene used to organize everything. But when he told me that he needed me, I became a little bit more in charge of taking care of the family and making sure that we stopped planning too much ahead and don't forget today." "Rene was my manager and husband, but I felt we were starting to lose the most important part of our relationship. Everything was about work and my voice and we weren't allowing enough space for our love, so we decided to take some time out." "Rene was very scared, and I saw him scared the first time in my whole life with him. And that was good. I thought I loved him at the max, but no. I had much more to give him - I didn't know that - and he let me." "Shall I go on 15 years more just to find out: My parents are dead, I have golden picture-frames, but no more friends, whose photos I could put in? I would like to have time for my family and above all time for my husband. Now." "Since I was a little child, my nose-I think it's too big." "So far so good. We take it a day at a time." "Sometimes it's embarrassing for myself, when I'm sitting in a restaurant with other people who are thinking if they should drink either a glass of wine or a take a dessert. I take always both. In addition to the ice cream I take a big portion of whipped cream." "Sometimes people imitate you, and Anna Gasteyer exaggerates my character and personality, but it's funny. I asked her to come and be part of my show and do a number with me." "Sometimes when something like this happens to you, you have no choice. It's something that you have to go through. Life decided that you're going to get sick, but you still have a choice." "Speaking honestly: Rene loves me the most when I'm wearing nothing." "The most important thing is to accept yoursel, and that's what I have done. I am healthy, I can walk and jump around and care about others-that's the essential part for me." "The only way to be stable is to be in one place. I'm going to be based in Las Vegas for three years. And I'm able to give the visual show I want for my fans. Every song will become an experience. It's going to be 50 or 60 performers on stage." "The past three years have been so precious to me because they've shown me how human we are and how the things we must value aren't the money and the fame, but our health, our love and our family." "The rumours, that say I would eat only salad and raw vegetables-aren't true. I just eat irregular, but possibly sound." "There's a big age difference, but I think older men have so much more to offer than young guys. They've done all their running and sown all their wild oats." "There's been nothing but discipline, discipline, discipline all my life." "There's people still there, waiting to be rescued, and for me it's not acceptable. I know there's reasons for it, I'm sorry to say, I'm being rude, but I don't want to hear those reasons." "There's something of everthing in my bathroom." "There's two people that I do love so-that I admire, that I look up to in my life, my mom in my personal life, and Barbra in show business. I just love her very much." "They're stealing 20 pair of jeans or they're stealing television sets. Who cares? They're not going to go too far with it. Maybe those people are so poor, some of the people who do that they're so poor they've never touched anything in their lives. Let them touch those things for once." "This is my big return, for sure. Every time I do something, it is entirely my whole self or not at all." "Throuh my husband Rene Angelil I knew golf. For him golf is like a religion, he plays it nearly daily. At golf you move the whole body, namely over hours on fresh air. That's pleasant and makes you calm." "To learn more languages, Spanish, Italian-or better, Japanese and Chinese-they take over the world economy slowly! In addition, German gladly." "Two years ago I saw the Cirque de Soleil. It changed my vision of my performing. This is what I wanted for me." "Up to now I don't know my home country Canada completely, let alone Europe. I travelled around the world, but I only saw concert halls and luxury hotels. We want to see all, what we missed up to now." "We are living in Florida, the whole year it's much warm, often also sultry." "We call him Rene-Charles. I went through labor for 24 hours. And then, Rene took him in his arms." "We went through life and death in one day. I'm glad everything happened like it did, because it gave us a chance to see what our priorities are. Being rich and famous is a wonderful thing, but it can't stop you from having cancer, it can't stop you from having problems trying to conceive a child." "We were lucky that in vitro worked the first time for us. We put three embryos in my belly and we have one that's five days old; it's frozen and it's there waiting for us. I'm going to go get this baby." "What I am eating I keep in me." "What I hope the most is to be more successful as a mother than in show business, because to be a mother is the most difficult I will ever have to do." "When I first started in this business, people took one look at me and said it wouldn't happen. They didn't even wait to hear me sing, they judged me entirely by what I looked like, my hair, my clothes, my face." "When I found out it was a boy, Rene started to cry." "When I started in show business, when I turned 18 years old I wanted to learn English and I wanted to sing in English." "When I was pregnant, I was holding my breath for eight months and a week." "When I'm at our house in Florida, I sometimes only wear a swim suit all day long. I only dresses myself chic or sexy when I'm working or go out with my husband Rene." "When I'm dressed I feel great. I can wear everything and never have had a problem because of the size or or a blouse that's too tight." "When I'm in naked front of my mirror I'd like to be a little bit more thick. I think women with curves are very beautiful. I don't put on weight." "When it was time for me to change for the Titanic thing, I used to come up in the middle of the stage, changing my wardrobe, putting on my big dress for the finale." "When it was time for me to perform live, I didn't know how I was going to present myself. I concentrated on not changing hands with the microphone. I was going to perform on television like I was in my living room and all those people were my brothers and sisters." "When you are a new mother, your body is-you're not in control totally." "When you want a child and you've been trying for six years, and this miracle baby comes, it's not hard. And every night, I gave myself a shot. And it's big needles like this in the muscle." "When you're a singer it's not only to sing and then we try to have a hit here, there's a responsibility of what you sing. Some people are being influenced. You enter people's life with some music. There intimacy. So whatever you sing you got to be careful sometime with lyrics." "While I was pregnant, two things I know for sure. He won't be blond and he won't have blue eyes! That's for sure. He's almost blond and he's got the eyes of the sky." "Yes, man, I love my husband, so when it's time to watch sports I'm right with him. I've been there for 20 years." "Yesterday, we can't do anything; tomorrow, we don't know. Today." "You don't want to bother people. Too much is too much. If you want to sing and be there all the time, you have to take a break." "You know, what I want the most right now, of course, my album, my record is fun." "You shouldn't always think about perfect breasts, a perfect body or a perfect nose. Of course, I'm thinking, that my nose could be thinner, my chin less peak or my belly a little more stronger after my pregnancy. But who cares? I am what I am!" "You're breast feeding every two hours. Milk is like... end of two valves, like the milk is coming out of your breast, which is a fantastic thing." "I have become a housewife and there is no better job." "My child was not only carried by me, but by the universe." "As a singer, I've had many opportunities to travel, and one thing I've learned is that through my music, I can be accepted by people all over the world. I often wonder why so many of us can't accept people who are different here, in our country? It's just not fair to be prejudiced against those whose race, religion or colour aren't the same as ours." "On her son Rene: Oh my God, when he's 20 years old what's going to happen to me? I'm gonna marry him." "On her baby: He's 16 months old and he eats soap and paper. What's going on with kids?" "On her son again: I smell his feet; they have a scent that's a bit like vinegar." "I often buy myself presents. Sometimes I will spend £100,000 in one day in a posh boutique." "I wish we were all naked all the time. I have always believed it's what's underneath that counts. If we were all forced to be naked, perhaps we would start to see it a little bit more."
