Celine Dion has revealed that scenes for a new documentary were initially meant to be kept private.
The My Heart Will Go On singer's film Celine: Through The Eyes Of The World - to be on limited release in US cinemas - allows fans rare flimpses of her offstage life during her last world tour.
She said: "It was not supposed to be shown, we wanted to make the best out of a privilege of touring the world - having my mother, who is 82 years old and my son, who is seven years old, and to make it really like a photo album, to bring back home memories - it was for a souvenir, really, but then it turned out to be ... quite exquisite."
Celine was happy to share intimate moments with fans.
"I want to be kind of accessible. I don't want to be doing this showbusiness and be different," she said.
"What we do, it's extravagant, it's extraordinary ... I don't call it a normal life but we are normal people. For people to see we live as normal as possible ... (it) makes my singing even more true and it gives me an extra bond with my fans."
Celine also spoke about her struggle to have another child, and hopes she is providing a voice for other women with similar issues.
"If I help people through my voice, through my interviews, through what I go through, I do not want to change that at all. ... I think it's making a difference," she said.
