Celine Dion wants to record with Eminem

Ballad singer Celine Dion wants to record a track with Eminem, despite the rapper’s controversial lyrics.

The ‘Think Twice’ singer would love to collaborate with the rapper – famed for his controversial and often violent lyrics – to give her more street cred.

When asked if she’d collaborate with Eminem by AccessHollywood.com, she replied: ”I’d love to.”

The vocalist – famed for her ballads – also talked about getting the seal of approval from her son Rene-Charles, 12, after he found out she’d worked with Sia Furler – who has penned hits including ‘Titanium’ with David Guetta and ‘Diamonds’ for Rihanna – on her new album.

She explained: ”When I told [Rene] I was getting ready to do another album and that there’s a new song called ‘Loved Me Back to Life’ and it was Sia who actually wrote it for me, he said, ‘No way’. He couldn’t believe it because I’m not cool, and I’m not Rihanna.”

Celine also admitted Rene – her son with husband Rene Angélil – isn’t a huge fan of her tracks.

She added: ”I’m not his favorite singer, for sure. I’m his favorite mom, though. That’s the main thing.”

Celine’s new album ‘Loved Me Back to Life’ is released on November 1.
