Photos of a visibly thinning Celine Dion has been circulating online and a lot of people got alarmed and worried about her figure.

“Celine Dion is ONLY two years older than Mariah Carey.💀💀💀”

“And Celine gave up her career not once, but twice, to help care for the love of her life, the man who she’s loved since the beginning. I don’t care what Celine looks like, her soul is beautiful.”

I have no idea why this tweet is doing numbers, but since my IG is basically cat pics and puns, I’ll plug this instead: “Call someone you’ve been meaning to call. You’re already on the phone and you’ve got time. Do it.”

“Celine dion lost her brother and husband to cancer within the SAME WEEK. let that happen to you and see how you look afterwards. god y’all are so fucking gross with this ageist insensitive bullshit.”

“Céline Dion lost her husband and her brother , she suffers from anorexia. She’s been through a lot. This comparison is useless and a woman is more than just her looks.”

Whatever the reason behind the drastic change in her figure, it’s Celine’s body anyway. It’s her body and her choice on how to shape it. Unsolicited opinions won’t help in whatever she’s having right now. People may be able to call out and express their concerns in a more polite way.

In an interview with U.K.-based newspaper The Sun, Celine was able to address the criticisms that surrounded her figure.

“If I like it, I don’t want to talk about it,” she said. “Don’t bother. Don’t take a picture,” she told The Sun’s Dan Woolton.

Followed by her empowering statement.

“I’m doing this for me. I want to feel strong, beautiful, feminine and sexy.”

Celine Dion stressed out that she has no time for body shamers.

“If you like it, I’ll be there,” Dion said. “If you don’t, leave me alone.”

Her statements have proven that she’s unbothered about her figure and about the criticism that people throw at her. Despite everything she may have gone through in the past, she’s still a powerful and empowering icon regardless of how people see her figure.

Besides, she’s famous of her voice and not of her figure. Although, her sense of fashion made her much more admirable and inspiring.

Celine Dion became a fashion icon at 49. She said fashion helped ease the pain of her husbands death.
