Celine Dion Ends Up On Ground After Crazed Fan Storms Stage & Refuses To Take No For An Answer

Sometimes we may think celebrities live a perfect life with all the money and fame they have, but there's a downside to being in the spotlight. Ordinary people don't have to worry about that one obsessed fan who might have intentions to do them harm.
Musicians in particular are constantly surrounded by concert groupies, but that's why bodyguard pepper the perimeter of the stage. No one is supposed to get past these burly bouncers, yet sometimes a very determined fan can sneak by and get within inches of their favorite singer.
Earlier this year, Celine Dion must have felt at least a little bit of terror when a woman stormed the stage during one of her live performances in Las Vegas. When the singer hit the floor, the crowd could do nothing but gasp.
Many of her fans would probably agree that Celine is one of the most classy women out there. But, it can be hard to hold your cool when you're face to face with a stranger and they suddenly lunge straight towards you.
However, the stranger wasn't aiming for the singer's throat - instead, she seemed to want a hug. The strange incident happened when Celine was performing live at Caesars Palace, where she's in the midst of a 5-year concert residency.
Many people would balk if a total stranger invaded their personal space, but Celine graciously allowed the woman into her inner circle.
Instead of calling for her bodyguards to remove the overzealous groupie, Celine kindly welcomed the woman on stage. At the beginning of the video footage that was captured by a fan, Celine can be heard saying:
"I'm glad you came up on stage tonight. I'm glad that you wanted to come closer to me."
Unfortunately, the woman seemed to take Celine's sweet comment as an invitation to get even closer to the her. When the fan suddenly flung her arms around the singer's shoulders, poor Celine was caught off guard and let out a surprised yelp!
The Canadian songstress quickly recovered from her shock, and in an attempt take her fan's high energy down a notch, Celine started singing the theme song to the kid's show, Barney.
"I love you. you love me."
When a bouncer tried to approach the fan, Celine politely asked him to back away - she wasn't going to him rudely haul the woman away.
"Olivier, you can leave her here but stay with her because she'll need you."
When a second bouncer approached, Celine explained to the woman that the men were her friends, and they weren't there to hurt her. However, she did let her fan know that this year was going to be a year of change:
"We're going to make a change for your baby, because you know what? We've got something in common. We've got babies that we love. And we're going to fight for them."
After the Celine let the guards finally escort the woman off the stage, she apologized to her audience for the brief interruption in the concert. But, in a tongue-in-cheek move, the singer dramatically fell to the floor when she watched the woman disappear down the stairs.
"Some people go through a lot. And some people need to talk, and I want to say thank you to all of you, because for maybe five minutes we have given this lady a moment to talk."
However, most of those in the audience would probably agree that witnessing their favorite singer handle one of her fans with kindness and understanding was no interruption at all. What an amazing woman!
