Real estate buying like 'Monopoly': Celine Dion

Celine: Vegas is 'thinking family'

Singing superstar Celine Dion now calls Las Vegas home, and she told CNBC ahead of her Tuesday night performance that her decision to become a resident musician at Caesars Entertainment instead of touring was because of her family.

But it doesn't mean she'll never tour again, Dion stressed.

Las Vegas is growing, she said with the best shopping, restaurants, and attractions.
