I don’t know why everyone is all up in arms over the news that Celine Dion uses 6.5 million gallons of water a year at the house pictured above. It’s 6.5 acres, though. That’s only a million gallons an acre!
To be honest, we’re lucky that she doesn’t water her lawn with blood diamonds and the souls of Siberian children. I hear that’s the secret combo to keep the weeds at bay, and she’s diva enough to try it.
All joking aside, sure, she uses a lot of water (enough to fill a 50 gallon bathtub every four seconds, in fact). But you know what? She pays for it. It’s not like she’s stealing it from a neighbor’s pool or something.
I’m sure we all waste a little water every now and then. For example, I bet some of you probably leave the faucet on when you brush your teeth. As for me, I like to leave the shower water running for a while before I get in. Sure, it’s to keep from getting sprayed with an icy blast when I first turn it on, but it’s the same thing, right? Yup, me and Celine are like two peas in an over-watered pod.
