50-year-old star Celine Dion has been in the spotlight due to the transformation of her fashion sense after her husband Rene Angelil passed away in 2016. But more than her bold dressing sense, it’s her shape that has become the hot topic among many netizens. A lot of social media users deemed her ‘skinny’ and her latest high-fashion looks have evoked many body-shaming comments. She, however, doesn't seem to give a damn!
In a recent interview to The Sun, Dion expressed that her new look is entirely for herself. "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,” she said. She further added saying, "I'm doing this for me. I want to feel strong, beautiful, feminine, fierce and sexy." It's always been a part of me … And I’m 50 years old, it’s not to try to take chances, it’s what I want to wear … I want to do whatever I choose to be. I have an opportunity to wear haute couture and the things that makes me feel beautiful, strong, fearless, feminine, attractive."
She continued saying that she wants the best of her and to be surrounded with ‘the best people’.
The singer will be headlining the British Summertime Music Festival at Hyde Park in London on July 5.
