Last time every the appearance of 51-year-old Celine Dion in the light provoked the public to discuss not only her new rather extravagant image, but also her figure.
The singer has been criticized more than once for excessive, in the opinion of many, thinness, and in a recent interview with ET Online, the celebrity answered everyone body shamers.
I do a lot of ballet stretching and train a lot, because this is how I feel comfortable: both in my body and in my soul.
When I was 12 years old, I had a rounder face, because at that age there was more fat in my body, but I was always thin. People say: "She is much thinner now," but I just love to move, and with it comes weight loss,
Celine told the reporter.

The singer also noted that she does not take negative comments to heart.
If you do not want to be criticized, you have no place in show business. I accept only the positive. I take what is good for me and leave behind what is harming me. I focus on what suits me, how I feel and, after all, you cannot please everyone,
– Dion shared her thoughts.
Now the singer is on tour, but doctors advised her to take a break to cure a throat infection. Listening to their advice, Celine took a two-week pause to fully recover, and then continue the tour, to which she added a few additional dates.
