Celine Dion goes blonde
Celine Dion says she feels "like a Barbie" in her new Rapunzel-like platinum blond tresses. She showed off her dramatic makeover recently at the Nevada Ballet Theatre's Black and White Ball, where she was the 'Woman of the Year' honoree.

After being saluted before the creme de la creme of Las Vegas society at Caesar's Palace, she told the reporters present that she recently decided she wanted to "become a blonde for a while, for the moment."

When asked if blondes indeed have more fun, she added, "sometimes. I'm like every woman; I like to play and have a good time." Life is good, she said, as her megashow, A New Day... nears its first-year anniversary in March.

Her son, Rene Charles, turned three earlier this week, but the birthday party was delayed until later, when she got a day off from work, "so we can spend the whole day with him without rushing anything. We're going to celebrate in style."

She addressed the issue of having a second child, acknowledging that it is very much in the plans.
