Celine Dion has been a target of harsh criticism because of her slim figure recently. Many people believe she should put some weight because she doesn’t look like her younger self any more. But this singer says she’s happy the way she looks and has one message for those who comment on her looks and her style; “Leave me alone.”
Since the death of her husband Rene who was 26 years her senior, this incredible singer started rocking completely new style. She opts for designer pieces that she is convinced make her look fearless and attractive, something many of her fans don’t agree with.

Speaking to The Sun, she said, “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.”
Her fans on the other hand say they are concerned for her well-being because looking that skinny isn’t healthy and don’t really want to shame her. Some of the comments are, “She looks so fragile” and “Celine, you are too skinny.”
She says she understands the concerns and convinces her fans she’s feeling beautiful and healthy the way she is. “I’m not anorexic. 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,” she told The Guardian. The superstar also added that she’s “found the wind beneath my wings” and isn’t afraid to take risks and makes bold choices.
Celine claims she’s eating healthy, working hard and is practicing ballet four days a week. She claims there’s nothing her fans should be worried about. “When you go back, when I was 12 years old, my face was rounder because you have more fat when you’re younger…But I’ve always been very thin,” she told PEOPLE.
Honestly, Celine looks satisfied the way she is and I guess people shouldn’t be so harsh on her looks if that’s what makes her happy after everything she’s been through in her life.
