Celine Dion knew that in returning to Beauty and the Beast, she was returning on her own.
The 48-year-old singer opened up to ET about making the decision to record a song for the latest movie incarnation of the classic fairy tale -- without the guidance of her late husband, Rene Angelil -- at the live-action film's premiere in Los Angeles on Thursday.
"My first Beauty and the Beast, the decision was made with my husband. Now I'm making decisions on my own. It's a little bit harder," she explained. "I couldn't say yes right away, because I felt like I was kind of cheating in a way."
Well, thankfully, the singer decided to sing again for the revival movie starring Emma Watson, this time with the perspective of how transformative the 1991 animated version was in her career.
