Celine Dion is shocking fans with her drastic weight loss. The iconic singer was photographed looking very skinny during Paris Fashion Week, leaving fans wondering if everything is okay with her health, and haters calling her out for her gaunt appearance.
However, the 50-year-old singer doesn’t care what anyone else has to say. In an interview, Dion addressed recent critics of her big weight loss and a new figure, and then she urged her fans to stop body-shaming her.
Dion attended several events in the City of Lights last week. On Wednesday, the songstress donned an oversized gray suit that hid most of her tiny frame. While Dion smiled for the cameras and appeared happy, her frail body is definitely a concern. The singer, however, said she has learned to take criticism of her looks in stride.
Speaking on “The Dan Wootton Interview” podcast, Celine Dion opened up about her weight loss and said:
“I want to feel strong, beautiful, feminine and sexy. If I like it, I don’t want to talk about it. Don’t bother. Don’t take a picture. If you like it, I’ll be there. If you don’t, leave me alone.”
It’s possible the mother-of-three feels more outspoken since launching her new gender-neutral clothing line for children, called Celinununu.
She said in an earlier interview:
“I feel that now I have a voice, which is kinda weird as that’s what I’ve been doing all my life – using my voice, but in singing and performing. But I use my voice as well for things that I choose I want to do and things that I say to my team I don’t want to do.”
This is not the first time Dion has responded to rumors she has an eating disorder. The singer was left with no choice back in 2007 but to address the speculations that she was anorexic. She denied the claims and said that “it pisses people off that I am thin and I don’t make any effort. I have been thin all my life. Nobody in my family is overweight.”
