In an interview for Good Morning America on Monday (Feb 13), diva Celine Dion did not waste any time to start pointing fingers at bad influences and drugs for the sudden and tragic death of Whitney Houston, who passed away in the bathtub of her hotel room.
Despite admitting Whitney was an inspiration to her, Celine had not problem speaking out about her idol’s struggles with drugs and alcohol that ended up taking over the late singer’s life, dreams and even motherhood. We just want to remind Celine, an official cause of death has not been released yet.
“Whitney’s been an amazing inspiration for me,” Dion said. “I’ve been singing with her my whole career, actually. I wanted to have a career like hers, sing like her, look beautiful like her.
“It’s just very unfortunate that drugs and, I don’t know, bad people or bad influences took over. It took over her dreams, it took over her love and motherhood…I mean, you think about Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe, Michael Jackson, Amy Winehouse, to get into drugs like that for whatever reason, is it because of the stress, the stress and bad influence, what happens?
“What happens when you have everything?”
Celine is right. All of those legends had everything to live a long, happy, fulfilling life, but they all passed away too soon, leaving a huge legacy. Anyhow, Celine also pointed out that Whitney’s music has “saved” and inspired a lot of people and that’s how we should remember her.
“When music helps or when music changes the lives of a lot of people…I’m sure that her music has helped a lot of people. Music is therapeutic, it’s helping a lot of people.
“It’s tragic. Her music will live forever, but it’s not enough. Time after time we lose people—it’s too soon and there’s no time for that. I mean, taking pills to go perform and taking pills to wake up and taking pills to go to bed…It’s so unfortunate.”
At the end of the interview, Celine declared she was herself deeply scared of show business and what it can do to people. And that was an incredible shocking and revealing admission by the “My Heart Will Go On” singer.
“There’s something that happens that I don’t understand, and that’s why I’m so scared,” the clearly shocked singer told GMA’s Robin Roberts. “I’m scared of show business, I’m scared of drugs, I’m scared of hanging out, and that’s why I don’t do parties and hanging out, and that’s why I’m not part of show business. We have to be afraid.”
