The song earned its songwriters an Academy Award for Best Song and gave Dion her first Grammy Award for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal."Beauty and the Beast" served as the lead single from Dion's 1992 self-titled album, which, like her debut, had a strong pop rock influence combined with elements of soul and classical music.I’d wake her up in the middle of the night and she’d be like, “Babe, it’s three in the morning—go to bed! Some people hear me and they’re like, “You sound so different! ” Did you ever have that friend growing up who had something to say and once she said it, you were like “Damn, yup—she’s totally right”? She’s real, sharp-tongued, she’s a lesbian’s lesbian, I like to call her. I will say that the person was so amazing and so sweet and an amazing icon to work with. The problem with being with so many cool people on set is group text messaging.
