Céline Dion's 12-year-old son, René-Charles, never used to be too impressed by his mom's music, despite the fact that she's sold more than 200 million albums worldwide.

"I’m not his favorite singer, for sure," Dion told Access Hollywood. "I’m his favorite mom, though. That’s the main thing."

But that all changed when her son, whom she calls R.C., found out that her new single "Loved Me Back to Life" was written by Australian singer Sia Furler, who also wrote Rihanna's hit "Diamonds."

"He said, ‘No way!’" the 45-year-old singer laughed. "He couldn’t believe it because I’m not cool, and I’m not Rihanna."

“So he’s like, ‘What? Sia wrote you a song? That must be a mistake. Like, this is not normal. She must not be feeling her best,’” she continued. "Because she’s so cool, for her to write a song for me? It’s like, thank you, Sia. Maybe this will help us!"

R.C. is more impressed by Eminem than his chart-topping mother, and when it was suggested Dion collaborate with the rapper to earn herself some street creed with her kids, she said, "I’d love to!"
