The French Canadian singer, Céline Dion, has stolen hearts across the world with her timeless looks and epic voice.

But per usual, haters and trolls had thoughts about the singer as of late when she posted a stunning photo of herself in a shimmery power suit from the Paris Fashion Week.

A few of the comments included hurtful and frank messages about her body, like:

“Fantastic my dear as usual. But I’m a little worried bout’ your health, sometimes you look too much skinny and weak. And tired. Are you ok, hunny?”

“You are iconic! But please gain some weight.”

“we can see through your skin. would you please eat something.”

“Not attractive at all! Eat!”

“Please! The anorexic look isn’t working for you.”

Supporters were few and far between – with one commenter coming to the singer’s defense, saying:

“These comments remind me of why I hate social media. The human race [is] just so mean, cruel, rude and hateful to any and everyone as if they have the ultimate right to judge and put others down. Seriously grow up people. We can do better. #BEKIND

But Céline herself shut all the noise down, saying:

“I’m doing this for me. I want to feel strong, beautiful, feminine and sexy,” Céline recently informed The Sun in regards to her fashion choices.

She then had a message to everyone who felt the need to criticize her choices as well as her figure in general.

“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.”



Snaps for Céline!

Céline is proud of her bold fashion choices and admits her look was not always bold, referencing working on her brand with her late husband.

“The way that we used to work before was more conservative.” Céline shared.

Her viral looks are less about “trying to take chances,” and more about finding outfits that make her “feel attractive.”

Céline has since become a fashion icon as well as brazen business woman, who takes risks she wouldn’t have dared when her late husband was in charge.

Céline shared how she is living the best of her life right now, telling the The Sun:

“To be honest with you, I think I’m at the best of my life right now and I really want to enjoy and embrace every moment of it.”

“It’s all new. It’s like I’m having a second wind — 50 has been great for me.”

René Angélil, Céline’s late husband, discovered Céline when she was just 12-years-old, becoming the only man she ever kissed.

He passed away three years ago to cancer at age 73.

The last two years, Céline has been accompanied by dancer Pepe Muñoz almost everywhere.

And while it has been widely speculated the two are together, their love is still unconfirmed.

I guess we will just need to let Céline do her thing because after all, she is just living her best life and I think we should take a page out of her book.
