Celine Dion Hits Back At Body Shamers About Her Big Weight Loss
Singer Celine Dion doesn’t care what anyone else has to say a. In an interview with The Sun on Tuesday, Dion addressed recent critiques of her big weight loss and new figure, and the 50-year-old singer urged her fans to stop body-shaming her. “I’m doing this for me,” she said of her new look. “I want to feel strong, beautiful, feminine, and sexy.” As for what other people have to say about it, Dion said, “if you don’t [like it], leave me alone.”
Dion’s interview comes just days after she posted a picture of herself to her Instagram from Paris Fashion Week, where she is pictured leaning against a wall in a metallic suit. Fans immediately noticed her slender frame, with one user commenting, “this is not a good picture of you makes you look old and way too skinny.”
In her interview with The Sun, Dion also addressed the long-standing rumors about her alleged relationship with background dancer Pepe Munoz. Once again, Dion denied the reports, claiming Munoz is simply her “best friend” and affirming that she remains single. It has been three years since her husband and manager, Rene Angelil, died from cancer in January of 2016.
Dion also took the opportunity to post a video announcing an upcoming visit to the U.K., the first performance she will be doing since announcing the end of her Las Vegas residency Celine, set to end in June of 2019.
