EXCLUSIVE: Lea Michele Adorably Loses It Over Meeting Celine Dion at the GRAMMYs
By Antoinette Bueno
Lea Michele's GRAMMYs night is already turning out to be a great one.
ET caught up with the 30-year-old actress on Sunday, as she turned heads on the red carpet in a daring Roberto Cavalli ensemble. Michele talked about meeting her idol, Celine Dion, just moments before, and how she attempted to play it cool!
"OK, so she was getting out of a car just now, and I was literally just alone standing outside of the hotel and I was like, 'I'm not gonna fangirl out,'" she recalls to ET's Cameron Mathison. "Because I get it ... it's a big day today. So, I just stood there and she looked at me and she goes, 'You look beautiful,' and then of course I was like, 'I'm the biggest fan,' and we shook hands. She's amazing, so I just take it as a sign from God that it's gonna be a good day."
Michele tweeted about their meeting, writing, "Just met @celinedion I'm DEAD it's going to be a good day. #grammys2017."
The Scream Queens star also talked about her upcoming album, and shared that her new single will be out in the next couple of weeks!
"I've been working on it for almost three years now, so I'm very excited for everyone to get to hear it finally," she says about her follow-up album to 2014's Louder.
Last December, Michele told ET that her new music is in part inspired by 48-year-old Dion.
"I really made sure that this album was all about my voice," Michele also told ET at The Grove's Christmas tree lighting ceremony. "It was inspired by a lot of the women I grew up loving and listening to, like Barbra Streisand and Celine Dion, so I think it just really is a good representation of who I am and where I am in my life right now, and I can't wait for people to hear it."
