The Word: Celine Dion’s house broken into

If you’ve ever seen Celine Dion’s Vegas show (not that I have, but let’s just say a certain Metro gossip columnist has a soft spot for her work with Peabo Bryson in “Beauty and the Beast”), you’d know the singer has some weird fans.

It also seems like she has some weird stalkers. 

Last week, an unnamed 36-year-old man broke into the diva’s Montreal-area home, raided her refrigerator and drew himself a bath before police arrived, alerted by the home’s alarm system, according to the Huffington Post. “He opened the water faucets, was pouring a nice, warmish bath. He even managed to eat some pastry that was in the fridge,” a police spokesman says. “The suspect was coming down the big staircase and was asking: ‘Hey, guys — what are you doing here?’”

Dion, her husband and children were not home at the time.

First of all, hooray for the super-descriptive French-Canadian police! (“Warmish” bath? What detail!) And if it weren’t for the “36-year-old” clue about the intruder, I’d bet the farm it was Kato Kaelin.
You just know that ’90s relic is currently a homeless Celine Dion fan.

Courtney Love: Out and about

New York hot spot Hiro transformed into a celebrity party on Tues-day night at modeling firm One Management’s 10th anniversary celebration. The main attraction next to guest Helena Christensen was Courtney Love. The singer took the stage at 11:30 p.m. and per-formed for about an hour. She was backed by the latest incarnation of Hole, with president of One Management, Scott Lipps, on drums. The president of a management company on drums? Maybe next time, she could get the guy who broke into Celine Dion’s house to play bass. Armed with her usual stage antics, including a bountiful supply of cigarettes and wine, Love performed more than 10 songs, including hits like “Violet” and “Malibu.” She also did an acoustic rendition of “Ne-ver Go Hungry,” that she told the crowd she wrote in rehab. “The words really mean a lot to me,” she said.
