Celine Dion Talks Madonna From Jamaica Jazz & Blues Festival

At her headlining performance this weekend from the Jamaica Jazz and Blues Festival in Montego Bay, Jamaica, Celine Dion was asked about fellow superstar Madonna's upcoming halftime performance at next week's Super Bowl.

"That tart? She needs to back away from the mic and the Botox. Girlfriend is looking a little stretched, don't cha think?" Dion told reporters.

Okay, not really. She shared with The Trend on Zappos Couture, "I love Madonna and know her well. She's going to be great, just fine; she doesn't need any luck. She's going to do her thing, do what she does best, (and) give us something for us to remember."

Unfortunately, now that we know that Madonna's Super Bowl special guest is going to Cee Lo, I'm not so sure I agree. Ironically, he also appeared at the Jamaica Jazz and Blues Festival this weekend.

And speaking of, bringing Celine to that event is being heralded as monumental for the locale. Jamaica Jazz and Blues producer Walter Elmore said, "Because Celine Dion has never appeared in this region nor at a music festival, this is a coup for us. We are certain her appearance will bring more visitors to Jamaica and enhance the stature of our world class event."

Conceived as a vehicle for increasing Jamaica's tourism during the low season, the Jazz and Blues Festival was launched in October 1996. *
