Celine Dion Devastated After Husband’s Death:

Celine Dion is devastated after her husband René Angelil died ‘after a long and courageous battle against cancer’
René Angélil, lost his battle against cancer, aged 73. As he wished, the music executive died peacefully in Las Vegas watched over by his 47-year-old wife. René leaves behind the couple’s three children, René-Charles, 14, and four-year-old twins Nelson and Eddy, as well as his three grown up children from two previous marriages, Patrick, Jean Pierre and Anne Marie.

A talented singer himself, René began managing artists after his pop group The Baronets folded. He discovered Celine, who was 12 at the time, in 1980, mortgaging his house to finance her career so convinced was he that she would become a star.

At just 19yrs she fell for him and their professional relationship turned romantic and René asked for the hand of his protege in 1991. A lavish wedding took place three years later amid the splendour of Montreal’s Notre-Dame Basilica.

Towards the end of his life their roles reversed with the My Heart Will Go On superstar taking care of her one-time mentor. After her husband was diagnosed with cancer for a second time in December 2013, Celine decided to take a year-long hiatus from her residency in Las Vegas to nurse and be there for her husband.

She spoke openly about how she was coping, saying that they had spoken about his death “I’ll say, ‘You’re scared? I understand. Talk to me about it,'” Celine confided. “And René says to me, ‘I want to die in your arms.’ OK, fine, I’ll be there, you’ll die in my arms.”

She said that they kept going because of the support of family, well-wishers, friends and fans. The support plays a big role in me telling him ‘One more day, let’s do it’. It helps tremendously.”

Her main focus was reassuring him that she was strong enough to look after their young sons.”My biggest job is to tell my husband, we’re fine,” she said. “I’ll take care of our kids. You’ll watch us from another spot.”

Jennifer Lawrence Rude Outburst At Reporter:

Actress Jennifer Lawrence ‘rude’ outburst at foreign reporter who used his phone during Golden Globes interview to E!’s Juan Pablo Fernández-Feo during a press conference has sparked outrage.

The reporter looked at his phone prior to asking a question, English is not his first language and he could have been recording the interview – asking Jennifer how she felt about forthcoming Oscars night, for which she is also nominated – she scathingly said ‘You can’t live your whole life behind your phone bro’.
‘You’re just not gonna… You can’t do that. You gotta live in the now,’ she said as she rolled her eyes and wagged her finger at him, prompting the room to descend into laughter.

Utterly ‘rude’ we at LS HQ really think she needs to lighten up …. and learn how to speak English too!

Icon David Bowie Has Died :

​David Bowie has died at the age of 69yrs, after an 18 month battle with cancer.

Bowie, rose to fame in the late 1960s and became one of the most influential and inspiring artists in music history with his eclectic style and versatility to re-invent himself.

His 1972 album, ​The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust, and the Spiders From Mars​ made him a superstar, his alter ego Ziggy Stardust iconic.

The famously colourful and enigmatic star last performed live 10 years ago, never courted press or fame, he was a superstar… in every sense of the word and released his latest album Blackstar on Friday, his 25th and final album, without doubt his legacy will live on and continue to inspire many musicians and artists.

Some of his most well-known hits included ‘Space Oddity’, ‘Let’s Dance’, ‘Life On Mars’, ‘Rebel Rebel’ and many more…

LS HQ send our thoughts to family and friends at this time, when the rest of us are mourning a superstar…
