Céline Dion Collaborates On New Gender Neutral Fashions For Kids

Céline Dion has collaborated with fashion brand NUNUNU to develop a new gender neutral line of children’s clothing.

The concept is to allow children to find their own personal style rather than be boxed into a traditional pink vs blue mindset.

Asserting that “fashion builds concepts deep within our minds,” the company says the new line (titled CELINUNUNU) “aims to free the forces of creativity and imagination in children, nurturing equality and flexibility of thought that enable kids to fully embrace who they are.”

And speaking of ‘embracing who they are,’ the new ad spot for the fashion line casts Céline as a badass binary-busting ninja.

In the video, we see the “My Heart Will Go On” singer enter what appears to be a gender-segregated maternity ward.

Celine provides voiceover narration for the spot: 

“Our children. They are not really our children. as we are all just links in a never-ending chain that is life. For us, they are everything. But in reality, we are only a fraction of their universe. We miss the past. They dream of tomorrow. We may thrust them forward into the future. But the course will always be theirs to choose.”

Reaching into her bag, she finds black glitter confetti (of course) and blows it across the room transforming the ward into a gender-neutral space. The children are suddenly decked out in bold black and white, non-gendered fashions.

Céline explained to PEOPLE that the new line “lets children choose outside stereotypes and norms so they can bring from within their own tastes and preferences.” 

“We help them feel free, creative, inspired, respectful of one another and happy in the world,” she adds.

With that in mind, the line offers ‘fashion-forward’ looks utilizing bold prints (alphabets, stars, plus signs) in a palette of black, white, yellow and denim. The plus sign is meant as a symbol of equality.

Most of the clothing is priced between $50 and $100, although there is a $290 leather jacket available for your 3-year-old to grow out of in a few months.

Back in the maternity ward, though, security has shown up and our heroine attempts to escape. But, curses, she’s felled by a flying tackle.

In a last ditch effort, she attempts to play the celeb card as she’s cuffed and being taken away: “Guys, relax, easy - I’m Céline Dion.”

But, alas, to no avail. The cop replies, “Yeah, girl, and I’m Beyonce.”

"Deadpool in Heels" Dancer Yanis Marshall Is Rocking Our World

Meet the man behind the latest Deadpool in heels video.

A couple days ago, we shared with you the latest viral hit on the internet. Actor and comedian Ryan Reynolds shared a promotional video for the upcoming Deadpool movie. In the video, the merc with a mouth dances around Celine Dion on stage while wearing heels.

But, if you thought Reynolds was wearing the suit and heels (but you probably didn’t), you were dead wrong.

Yesterday, a man named Yanis Marshall posted on Instagram a shout out Reynolds gave him. In the screenshot of Reynolds’s words, you can read:

“How does Ryan Reynolds dance so beautifully? Did he have eight bones surgically removed from his body in order to move as if a graceful swan had sex with Fred Astaire?” The answer my surprise you. Yes. I did have eight bones removed from my body. But the dancing was all Yanis Marshall. This man is not just a dancer… he’s an elite athlete, hero and all-around hilarious person. Follow him on Instagram. Put him in movies. Throw confetti at his feet when you see him. He is a gift to this weary world.”

But who is Yanis Marshall? Well, he’s a dancer and choreographer who’s getting work and attention for his vibrant personality and his fierce dancing (often while wearing heels).

You might have already seen Marshall through Britain’s Got Talent. Marshall auditioned back in 2014 and ended up becoming a finalist.

But he doesn’t just dance, he choreographs dances too. Yanis Marshall also has spent time working as a coach and choreographer on Dancing With The Stars and the Ukraine’s version of So You Think You Can Dance. And now, he’s the choreographer for Cirque du Soleil’s Las Vegas Zumanity show (a show bursting with sexual energy and that also has same-sex romances depicted).

Congratulations to Yanis Marshall. His hard work is paying off and Ryan Reynolds is helping to get his name out there.

We're Gagging Over Deadpool Dancing To Celine Dion In Heels

Bless Ryan Reynolds and the marketing team for Deadpool.

Throughout his career, Ryan Reynolds has been known as a funny guy. But, only since he truly embraced his comedic side has he found his niche in Hollywood.

Part of the first Deadpool film’s success was because of the movie’s wonderfully creative marketing. From emoji billboards to cabin hubby posters, the comedic genius and creativity of Reynolds and his team shined brightly.

Now that the sequel film is just around the corner, Reynolds is giving us one last jab of viral bound bliss by releasing another promo on Twitter (and he’s doing it in heels).

Earlier this morning, Ryan Reynolds shared a video on Twitter that at first seems like a performance by Canadian singing sensation Celine Dion. But after a few moments of watching, viewers realized they were getting a Deadpool treat.

This is just the latest in a long stream of funny and creative trailers and viral videos used to promote the superhero film. All of it aligns with the brand and vision that the bounty hunter-and-sometimes-hero had in the comic books.

You can check out a few other funny videos that reference pop culture icons like Bob Ross and Toy Story down below.

Deadpool 2 arrives in American theaters on May 15.
