Drake has tattoos of multiple female singers, including Rihanna and Sade

Dion said she's concerned about the effect of time on the representation of her face on his body

VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) – Singer Celine Dion is asking fellow Canadian Drake not to get a tattoo of her face on his body.

Drake had mentioned to Dion in 2017 that he might add her portrait to his collection of singer tattoos, which already includes Rihanna and Sade. But in an interview with iHeartRadio Canada this week, Dion begged the rapper not to.

“Please Drake, I love you very much,” she said. “Can I tell you something? Don’t do that.”

Dion said she would be concerned about what the ravages of time would do to the tattoo. As we get older, she said, gravity takes over and that might not leave the ink of her face in the best shape.

“We can sing together – whatever you want to do. I can talk to your mother,” she said in the interview. “Whatever you want, but please – this is not the moneymaker over here.”

Drake has not yet responded to the singer’s pleas.
