Céline Dion sang the most iconic song from Titanic and she’s been known to pay subtle odes to the film every once in a while— she even attended several haute couture shows in Paris wearing a a replica of the famous Heart of the Ocean necklace. So fittingly she has some thoughts on the iconic movie’s plot points.

On The Tonight Show Staring Jimmy Fallon earlier this week, the Canadian singer weighed in on one of the most divisive debates from the film: whether or not Rose should have moved over as the boat sank to make room for Jack on the floating door.

Fallon brought the question up, joking, “Céline, I always try to ask you a good Titanic question every time you’re here because I know you probably love those.” At first, she was reluctant to answer and cracked, “Don’t put me in trouble. What if they want to do a Titanic number two?” But eventually the singer offered a very funny and logical explanation that knocks some of the wind out of the debate. “First of all, if you look closely [at] the picture, Rose is maybe dead or totally frozen, and she’s not quite all there, okay?” she said. “Second of all, he doesn’t need an invitation. Come on, baby! Make himself comfortable. Jump in. You know?”

She also made a really smart point about Jack being physically unable to pull himself on to the door. “And then who did not think about this guy who is in the middle of the frozen ocean and that maybe all his body is so frozen that he didn’t have the strength to… ” she said, right before singing a line from the song, “Jump For My Love.”

Pretty much everyone, from Brad Pitt to Margot Robbie, has debated this question. The film’s star Kate Winslet even recreated the scene with Stephen Colbert to give Jack some space. But, of course, Céline just masterfully changed the entire door discourse, like the legend she is.
