Her heart will go on…in a non-binary fashion. Celine Dion has been teasing what looks like a well-curated arrest video for a few days on Instagram, and I was really hoping it was going to end up being a redo movie of The Bling Ring. Alas, we won’t have Celine calling up a Vanity Fair journalist to sob about who made her shoes. Instead, the video is part of a campaign to launch Celine’s partnership with fashion brand NUNUNU on a line of gender-neutral children’s clothes. Divas may come a dime a dozen, but how many #woke divas do you see doing the damn thing like this??
Today says the children’s clothing partnership is meant to “liberate children from the traditional roles of boy/girl.” While we’re at it, can we also liberate them from that Baby Shark song, too? The ad demonstrates the gender liberation by having the Queen of Quebec break into a newborn wing at a hospital to spread magical gender-erasing powder over the kiddos, thus ridding them of the pink and baby blue hues we’ve all been drilled into believing were a must-have for anything shoved out of a hoo ha:

Celine’s magic dust wipes away the binary gender signs and replaces them with what oddly looks like the cross on the Swiss flag. Eh, Switzerland is known for being neutral, so maybe this makes sense. The CELINUNUNU line seems to be heavy on black and white colors as well as stars, so it seems like there will soon be a lot of babies walking (crawling?) around who look like they’re going to their first Good Charlotte concert. I think they’re cute and really make it easy to buy shit for a newborn. Somehow, however, I feel like every writer at Fox News looked at this, clapped their hands in glee, and squealed, “The primetime lineup just wrote itself!”
