It’s perfectly normal for her as a human (not to mention, a celebrity) to want to break free from the conventional idea people had of her for so long. Yes, this image was painstakingly designed by René, Sony, and Céline - but ship has sailed. Céline gets it, why don’t her fans?!
Her simplicity was what endeared her to the fans fall, yet made her critics laugh at her. Nobody likes to be put in a box. Clinging to “the way things used to be” is unhealthy and unrealistic. So what if she’s saying “no” to an exhausting press junket, and “yes” to silly Instagram photos shoots? That’s what works for her lifestyle now as a mother. Artists can’t follow a formula for inspiration. They have to live on the edge, surround themselves with new stimuli, and let their creativity grow organically - not by dusting off the old playbook and locking herself in a studio to record a new album like clockwork every few years. She’s been saying this for YEARS.
Ultimately she is on her own damn journey and every second of it that she shares with us (even if it’s trying to sell us handbags, baby clothes, sunscreen, chapstick) is a f***ing blessing to be cherished. One day she WILL stop singing for us, and then where will we be? Still whining?
