Dion's reaction? She tweeted a laughing face and a thumbs up emoji along with the encouraging words, "Excellente interprétation !! / Good job @nickiminaj!!"
Minaj, understandably in full fan mode, responded, "I love you so much. Thank you!!!" with a queen's crown emoji before taking to Instagram to share a screenshot of the full conversation along with the most hilarious—albeit relatable—caption.
Reaching out to fellow musicians Ariana Grande—Minaj's "Side to Side" duet partner and co-singer of the live-action Beauty and the Beast's theme song (originally performed by Dion for the 1991 animated movie)—and Dawn Richard, the 34-year-old excitedly wrote, "@arianagrande @dawnrichard look who hit me y'all !!!!!! It's @celinedion wait til I tell my mother."
Minaj isn't the only celebrity to fully admit to getting starstruck by the legendary musician: Beauty and the Beast star Emma Watson recently revealed that she was extremely nervous to meet Dion—who performs a brand-new track for the Disney live-action remake—for the first time.
Now, if only the two queens would collaborate on a single!
