Celine Dion slams critics of her weight

CELINE Dion has slammed critics of her weight, as she says she feels “sexier” than ever.

The 50-year-old singer has lost some weight in recent years and changed her clothing style to fit her new body, but has hit out at those who believe she’s too slim, because she says if they don’t like the way she looks, they should just “leave (her) alone”.

During an interview for The Dan Wootton Interview podcast, she said, “I’m doing this for me. I want to feel strong, beautiful, feminine and sexy. 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 comments come after she launched a gender neutral clothing line for children called Celinununu last year, which she created to give children a “chance to feel free to find their own individuality”.

She said, “It’s not that we’re hoping to shift gender norms with Celinununu. It’s more about offering a choice and giving children a chance to feel free to find their own individuality, their own true essence without being tied to stereotypes. I think that every child needs to have their own identity, to express themselves freely, and to not feel like they have to be like someone else.” – BANG!
