Nicole Kidman isn't the only star taking it off in V Magazine this month!

Celine Dion bravely went topless for a sexy spread in the September issue. The 44-year-old singer and mother-of-three was excited to do her first promo shoot in six years.

"I'm like this in my real life. I was scared a little bit because this was so different for me, but I'm glad I did it, Dion told the magazine. "Usually there's always a reason when I do a photo shoot, there's not the opportunity to go crazy. With this it was two in the morning and I was still jumping on the trampoline. In the house, in my normal life, we are always playing. It doesn't seem this way on stage, but I'm playing a lot." 

In the racy photo, Dion stands with her side to the camera and covers her chest with her arms. Wearing big hoop earrings and long evening gloves, the singer shows off her the sexy curve of her bare back.

Dion and her husband Renee Angelil, 70, have three children together — son, Rene-Charles, 11, and twin boys Eddy and Nelson, 22 months.

"I thought I had a life before, but until I was a mom, I had no idea," the "My Heart Will Go On" singer shared. "Why would I want a hit? Why would I want to win awards? There is nothing I can hope and wish for my career: I can just hope to be blessed as a mother for the rest of my life the way I am now. That's the only nomination I want."
