Sacramento King-slash-MC Ron Artest revealed his sensitive side in an interview with The Smoking Section , where he praised Nelly for not “talking about killing people” and gave a certain breast-beating Canadian some love:
Give us an artist/group from another genre that you’d like to collabo. Someone outside of the box that people wouldn’t expect.
Celine Dion. She has an amazing voice. I really like the sound and beautiful quality of her voice. She’s an extremely talented singer.
We’re hoping Celine somehow gets wind of this and invites Artest to drop by for a Vegas set–in our dream world, the Francophone singer would persuade him to take some French lessons and throw down a cover of “Bonnie and Clyde.”
