Celine Dion admits to smoking pot in Amsterdam

Canadian diva Celine Dion is mostly squeaky clean, but every now and then her wackiness shows. She sometimes has a habit of oversharing- about her sex life, about her body, and many other odd topics that surprise me. In a recent interview, Dion admitted that she and some friends tried some pot while in Amsterdam…but nothing happened. Celine, you’re supposed to hold it in!

Celine Dion has admitted she once tried marijuana – but quit smoking before she was caught by camera-wielding paparazzi.

The Canadian singer was visiting Amsterdam and decided to try the drug in a local cafe.

‘The only time I did one puff was in Holland, where it’s legal. And I went to a cafeteria with some girls, with the little boats and the canals and we stopped and I tried.’

But the 39-year-old insists the substance had no effect on her: ‘Nothing. No. But I didn’t choke. I took one puff and I said, ‘Okay, nothing happened!’ It was funny.

‘It was, for us, like cheating. ‘Oooh!’ You know, there might be paparazzi!”

Poor Celine, somebody should have showed her how to inhale. But it sounds like she had fun anyway. I have a hard time believing people when they say that they’ve only tried it once, and it had no effect on them. The last time I tried it, I laughed for about 7 hours straight, then ate an entire bag of Funyuns. I’ve never been to Amsterdam, but I hear that there’s a lot more to the city than legal weed and canals. There’s also the Red Light district, where prostitution is legal. It definitely sounds like a great place to go for an “adults-only” vacation. I think I need to start saving my money now.

Celine Dion is shown performing in Brisbane, Australia on Sunday

    Big deal. We all have puffed it one time or the other.

    The first time you smoke you don’t really get high. and especially not from one puff! lol … “nothing happened!!”. very cute.

  4. Jody says:

    It’s a shame she didn’t indulge more, since it’s legal.

    I’m going on a safari this winter, and we have an 8 hour lay over in Amsterdam, so I’m excited for a mini-visit. I’m not sure if I’m ready for a full blown vacation yet– since I’m pretty well versed in holding it in.

    Side note: Anytime Amsterdam is mentioned, I can’t help but think of an episode of The Office, where Toby tells Jim that he’s been to Amsterdam, for a week… or maybe a month. so hilarious.

    Caption for the main pick:

    “Pull my fingairrr!”

    If I had been in Amersterdam, I would have tried harder. Celine is completely insane.

    She’s Canadian. Pot is next to legal. We joke around that if the cops do come across it, they confiscate the joint and smoke it themselves when their shift ends.

    Yeah, and there’s some more stuff in Amsterdam. Like… interesting architecture, great restaurants, good shopping. And locals who get brassed off by all the tourists only there to get high and walk around the red light district.

    Amsterdam is a really fun place, I adore it. The Reitsmuseum is there.

    I think she lied about “nothing happened” – she must have been high when she picked out that fugly-ass dress!

  9. (media)people lets just face it…pot is here it’s been here forever and its not going away…its not hurting anyone…only people hurt themselves. if you have a weak mind and character then youre life will probably suck. I also think that if you always make it a point to down-talk on everyone in the world you arent helping anthing. can we all just get a bong!?
