Canadian singer, Céline Dion, 49, has been hailed a ‘model of grace’ for gracefully handling a drunk female fan with remarkable skill when she ran to her on stage.
The incident occurred during her performance at the Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, over the weekend.
When the fan rushed the stage and grabbed the Canadian icon, she began acting erratically and rubbed up against her, forcing security to rush over but the singer decided to handle the situation with compassion instead.
“You know what? We’ve got babies that we love, and we’re going to fight for them,” she says during the incident, which lasted for two minutes. “And we’re wearing gold, that’s a sign.”
At one point the security staff go to pull her offstage, but Dion sent them away. “Get out, get out, get out,” she says jokingly to the security guards as she takes the woman’s arm. “I’m going to help you out. Come.”
After the incident,the singer thanked the crowd and the security guards, saying “Some people go through a lot, and some people want to talk.”
“Thank you for your patience,” she says calmly. “And now, are you ready to celebrate?”
