Celine Dion has no Las Vegas residency advice for Lady Gaga

By: Meaghan Wray

Celine Dion may be the ultimate Las Vegas superstar but she's not about to give pointers to Lady Gaga, who begins her own two-year Vegas residency at the Monte Carlo Resort & Casino in December.

“Do I have advice for Lady Gaga? No!” the Canadian chanteuse exclaimed during a live feed from her Las Vegas stage during CNN’s New Year’s Eve Live. “This girl knows exactly what she’s doing. She knows what to do!”

Lady Gaga, known for her lavish stage performances (she brought the house down at the 2017 Super Bowl half-time show), shared the Vegas news on Instagram with celebratory photos of her signing the contract. Pictured in a cap that read “Vegas,” the “Poker Face” singer, 31, called it a dream come true.

“I was made for this town, and I can’t wait to light up the Park Theater like never before!”

Celine, who has been performing at Caesars Palace since 2002 – one of the longest stints by a singer in Vegas – says Gaga simply doesn't need her advice. "I will never, ever, ever in my whole life tell someone professional – super-talented like she is – how to do things,” said the Canadian star.

These two musical forces clearly have the utmost respect for each other. Back in February last year, the two had an epic rendezvous on the Grammys red carpet. While Celine – looking fierce in her bright green Zuhair Murad gown – was speaking with ET, Gaga made a stealthy appearance. The two shared a hug, and Gaga received mighty praises from Celine, “You’re amazing, I love you.”

Gaga and Celine had an epic meeting at the 2017 Grammy Awards.
