Celine Dion calls for self-acceptance in 'Imperfections' music video

Celine Dion calls for self-acceptance in 'Imperfections' music video

Celine Dion unveiled the accompanying music video for her recent single, “Imperfections”, a few months ahead of her new album’s release.

The black-and-white video was directed by Canadian visual artist Gabriel Coutu-Dumont, and produced by multidisciplinary artist Janicke Morissette.

It sees Dion reflecting on self-criticism as she wears a wide range of high-fashion outfits, from a bell-sleeved gown to a mixed-print ensemble.

The clip is interspersed with moments showing the singer sitting at a makeup table, where she removes the cosmetics on her face.

“I got my own set of scars to hide/I got my own imperfections/I can’t hold your heart when I’m fixin’ mine,” she sings in the refrain.

“Imperfections” is one of three singles Dion released earlier this month, following “Courage” and “Lying Down”.

They will all be featured in her 12th English-language studio album, “Courage”, which the singer is supporting with a world tour.

Dion’s “Courage” world tour, which marks her first global trek in a decade, kicked off on Sept. 18 with two dates at Videotron Center in Quebec City, Canada.

After hitting the road across North America, the Canadian powerhouse will travel to Europe on May 2020, with shows announced in Germany, Italy, Norway, England and France. RGA/JB
