Celine Dion is considering a tattoo tribute to her late husband.

The My Heart Will Go On hitmaker was left devastated when her beloved spouse Rene Angelil died of cancer in January and is thinking of having a electrocardiogram line - a display of the electrical activity of the heart - etched on her skin as a permanent reminder of him. She said: "Since my husband passed away, they can make the tattoo as his heartbeat. So, I might have his heartbeat on my body for the rest of my life." The 48-year-old star - who had sons Rene-Charles, 15, and five-year-old twins Eddy and Nelson with Rene - made her revelation when asked to choose if she prefers tattoos or piercings. And in her deliberations, Celine poked fun at the way tattoos alter as people get older. Playing 'This or That' in a quickfire interview with The Scene, she said: "In tattoos, I've seen so many people that, they have tattoos when they're young and they get older and the name changes. "You know, it used to be 'Louise' and now it's like, 'Louis.' You are goin' down! It's gravity, baby. It's goin' down." And Celine admitted she would rather look fashionable than feel comfortable in her clothing. Asked to choose between fashion or comfort, she said: "I don't care about comfort. The day you start thinking about comfort, you're getting old. And I'm just starting, so I'm not getting old!" Though she is distraught at her husband's passing, the Think Twice singer takes comfort in the fact Rene is no longer suffering. She said recently: "He's good. He doesn't suffer anymore. I think he's enjoying looking down. "Passing away is part of life. Many things help you to go through this, but especially my kids."

Rita Ora has therapy once a week.

The 25-year-old singer admits she experiences feelings of anxiety when she starts to think about the future, but finds it helpful to discuss her fears with a counsellor on a regular basis. She said: "I'm not scared to admit I've had therapy. I have someone I speak to once a week. People suffer from it in different ways, but for me it's more about thinking about the long-term goal. I'm a very 'in the moment' person, so if I have to do something there and then, I'll be fine. But if I think about it, that's when anxious thoughts start going on." The Body On Me' singer is thankful to have a supportive team of people around her that will ease her fears. She said: "I get so nervous because I care so much. Sometimes I get nervous about recording a song in the studio. I'm like, 'I'm not ready to record this yet.' Or, 'I don't think I can do this.' So I'm relieved to have people around me who encourage me to do well." While Rita recently spent months locked in a legal battle with Jay Z's Roc Nation label, she doesn't seem to bear a grudge after signing to Atlantic Records, as she still regards the '99 Problems' rapper as one of her "idols", while she thinks of his wife Beyonce as "the queen of life". Discussing her inspirations, she told the new issue of Britain's Cosmopolitan magazine: "There are people I respect strictly for their hustling business purposes. Victoria Beckham for one. She's an incredible inspiration and I love her stuff. And she came from the Spice Girls - major! "Jay is one of my idols and Beyonce is obviously the queen of life. I'll never not appreciate the experience I have had with them and the things I've seen. They've been great mentors. I look up to them a lot." The I Will Never Let You Down singer admitted she has been a victim of sexism within her career. She said: "Things would be said differently and conversations would be taken outside (the room) only because I am a woman."
