Celine Dion hits back at body shamers: “I’ve always been very thin”

Celine Dion has fired back at body shamers after people have criticised the singer for being too thin.

The 51-year-old addressed the negative comments in an interview with ET, saying that there was nothing wrong with her.

“I do ballet. I do a lot of stretching and I work out because it helps my mind, body and soul,” she said on the opening night of her Courage Tour in Quebec, Canada.

“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.”

Dion has been at the forefront of the music industry for 40 years after she released a number of French albums in her early teens.

She was then pushed into super stardom with hits such as My Heart Will Do On, The Power Of Love and Because You Loved Me.

The star is used to being in the spotlight.

“If you don’t want to be criticised, you are in the wrong place,” she told ET.
