It might as well have been Celine Dion walking into the Coffee Tree at Bloor and Jane Streets Tuesday afternoon.
The resemblance is striking.
Both the French Canadian pop phenomenon and actor, singer Laura Landauer are willowy in stature; they’ve both got light brown hair highlighted blonde and a bright-eyed smile. Even their mannerisms are similar.
Perhaps people are quick to make the connection, mused Landauer, because she’s been impersonating Dion for the past four years.
“It’s been a crazy month,” enthused Landauer as she settled into a couch with a cup of tea.
She’s been busy promoting her appearance in The Love Guru, Mike Myers’s latest film in theatres June 20. It’s the story of Pitka, an American who was left at the gates of ashram in India as a child and raised by gurus. He moves to Canada to seek fame and fortune in the self-help business. His first challenge is to settle a rift between a Toronto Maple Leafs star hockey player, Darren Roanoke, and his estranged wife, Prudence, who’s left him for a rival skater named Jacques Grande, played by Justin Timberlake.
Landauer plays Dion in a concert scene during which Timberlake’s character, a huge fan, rushes the stage and dances to her singing ‘I Drove All Night.’
“Celine,” he exclaims, “It is my day of lucky, hahaha.”
“I’m not a star struck person,” Landauer revealed. “Mike Myers was so nice, very personable. I only encountered good things.”
Landauer assumes Myers discovered her as Dion on one of her many YouTube videos. The concert scene was filmed at the Guvernment last October over two days. Although she brought her own costumes, Myers had everything picked out for her to wear.
“This was his baby, you could tell. He’s got his hands on everything,” Landauer said.
Landauer impressed the filmmakers so much that they invited her to New York City in January to shoot some further scenes. She has yet to see the final product.
“I don’t know what’ll be shown. I did a lot so we’ll see. I had a ball. That Justin Timberlake, he can move. He plays this Quebecois hockey player. You’d never recognize him as Justin Timberlake.”
She wasn’t nervous, her confidence bolstered by the designer dress and thousand dollar shoes she was wearing.
“They had a great stage set up with all these people. I couldn’t wait to get up there,” she said.
Landauer grew up in Montreal in the ’80s. She had dark curly hair about the same time Dion did.

Question: How was your experience performing on Justin Timberlake’s FutureSex/LoveShow tour?
Answer: That was all around Europe, and it was just fantastic to be on tour with such a pro. Everywhere we went, Justin would say the local swear words onstage. He’d learn some of the language, normally something a bit dirty, and it would make people roar with laughter. And I learned to run around in high heels, and the stage was massive.
Now we have available for you to d/l the studio version of Justin Timberlake & Madonna “4 minutes” performance at the Roseland Ballroom in NYC. Enjoy!!!
Paramount Pictures has released 2 new images from THE LOVE GURU featuring Justin Timberlake. The movie opens in theaters June 20th!

Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel are still a perfect SET!
Though the two have kept an ultra-low profile in recent months, it doesn’t mean there’s any trouble in paradise – and they definitely proved it Friday night!
Joined by a group of friends, Justin and Jess invaded the VIP area at Miami’s SET nightclub around 12:30 a.m. Friday evening, an eyewitness tells OK!. While their pals couldn’t keep their hands off the overflowing Grey Goose and Patron in the room, the lovebirds couldn’t keep their hands off each other!
“They were showing a lot of PDA!” the eyewitness tells OK!. “It was a lot – considering how coy most celebrity couples are.”
Dressed in casually – she in a breezy ethnic blouse and short skirt; he, jeans and T-shirt – the couple of nearly a year and a half engaged in a marathon of hugging, French kissing, hand-holding, dancing, singing, and gazing into each others’ eyes, the source adds.
”You couldn’t tell them apart,” the source says. “They only had eyes for each other. They told friends they just wanted to have fun that night – no photos, no media, just a private table where they could let loose.”
And apparently that they did.
By the time J&J exited SET – hand-in-hand, of course – at 3:30 a.m., they were still as giddy as ever.
“They were telling friends they had the best time,” the source says.

Everytime there is an award show, the media starts rumors that Justin Timberlake is going to attend.
This time e! columnist Marc Malkin says that there is a good possibility that both Justin & Jessica Biel are going to show at the 2008 MTV Movie Awards, and that it totally makes sense for him to be there cause he has a new movie coming out, “The Love Guru” starring Mike Myers, who is hosting the award ceremony this year.
The MTV Movie Awards will be broadcast live from the Gibson Amphitheater in Universal City on June 1.
Check the video below:
Much Music created a list of the 12 artist that they consider are the most powerful musicians of today.
One must take into account not just album sales, but also clothing lines, fragrances, sold-out tours, charities, endorsement deals and, of course, relevancy, the music channel states.
And Justin Timberlake succeeds in all these aspects (well the fragance is still to come), he is a complete singer /actor /entertainer /producer /business man, he does just about everything. That’s why he made it to the 1rst position of the list, ahead of other artists of the caliber of Jay-Z, Diddy, Kanye West, and Bono.
Here is what they say about him:
Back in 1991, the “King of Pop” Michael Jackson released an album entitled Dangerous, which launched 6 Top 20 hits. Flash forward 15 years and Justin Timberlake releases his second solo album, FutureSex/LoveSounds, which goes on to launch 6 Top 20 hits. The only difference here is that when Michael Jackson accomplished said feat, he was nearing the end of his musical career – Justin Timberlake is only just beginning. Girls love him, guys want to be him, and parents think he’s the perfect boy to have over for Christmas dinner. He inducts Madonna into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, he dates respectable women, and he loves getting Punk’d. He sings, he dances, he plays piano and guitar, he beatboxes, and now he acts. It seems the man can do no wrong, and thus he ends up at number 1. The New King of Pop, indeed.
Justin has achieved so many things in such a short period of time, and he has a bright future ahead, congrats!!
