Celine Dion has found yet another famous, if unlikely, fan: unpredictable NBA star Ron Artest.

The Los Angeles Lakers forward attended one of Dion's performances in Las Vegas over the weekend and went on a tweeting spree afterwards, proclaiming that the show was "crazy dope."

"I'm at Celine dion concert! Backstage!! Wow!!! Me and my boys!! Wow!!! She said she love my Jimmy Kimmel show when I had my beard on!!!!!!!!" he tweeted.

Later, he added: "Celine made me and all my thug friends cry with the French song!!!! She cried !!! Wow!!!! She hugged me !! I got chills!!"

"I think Celine show will entertain anyone!"

The starstruck former NBA all-star, who is reportedly petitioning the L.A. courts to allow him to change his name to Metta World Peace, posted a photo of his entourage and Dion together.
