Series of interviews with journalists

On May 12, 2016, four months after René’s death, Céline gave interviews on the subject for the first time. Celine wore different clothes and did her hair differently for each interview.

On May 18, ABC aired Deborah Robert’s interview with Céline on “Good Morning America.” (It was rebroadcast that evening on “Nightline.”)

The same day, Canada’s TVA aired “Céline maintenant,” an interview with Céline by Québécois host Marie-Claude Barrette.

One week later on Tuesday, May 24, Céline spoke with Stéphane Rotenberg for “Ma vie sans René,” a TV special broadcast on the French channel M6.
