In further proof that it's Celine Dion's world and we're all just living in it, the Canadian diva has paved the way when it comes to answering awkward questions that you really don't want to get too specific about.

In Montreal to launch her new handbag collection, Dion was asked the following by a reporter: "How are things going? It's a whole new world, you're a single woman. How is life?"

To which she responded first by asking whether the reporter wanted a date, "are you asking me out?" she sassed.

Then, and most gloriously, she sang a little snippet of Rihanna's Shine Bright Like a Diamond.

Which is the most Celine Dion response, and also the most perfect response.

Other suggested uses for employing this tactical response: When Uncle Bob asks you why you're still single at Christmas, when your boss asks you where your overdue sales report is and if your partner asks if those shoes are new.

As reported by ET Dion also spoke about her beloved late husband Rene Angelil, who passed away from cancer in January 2016.

"There are times when you go through a lot, whether it's disappointment or a loss for example," she told the rapturous crowd. "There is a force that takes over when you believe and I'm such a believer."

Fans of Dion believers were out in force to see their queen in Montreal, with many posting videos and pictures to social media of Dion gracing them with their presence.

Coupled with Dion's new status as the internet's favourite style icon, the dionaissance is in full bloom.
