Even though Céline Dion is a multi-million-selling pop icon, occasionally people have chosen to focus more on her body than on her considerable professional accomplishments. In 2019, for instance, fans of the “My Heart Will Go On” songstress took to her Instagram page to comment on photos of the star appearing rather thin. But while some of these remarks may have been well intentioned, Dion wasn’t up for having her looks reviewed. And she would go on to tell the world the real reason for her alarming weight loss, too.
In fact, it could be said that Dion was subject to “body-shaming.” And as you may know, this phrase is often used when a person is seemingly criticized for their frame – sometimes because they’re perceived to be either too large or too slender. Yet while such observations may ostensibly be made out of concern, body-shaming can also turn into outright bullying.
And Dion has been through a lot in her life, including medical problems that have required surgery. Unsurprisingly, then, she wasn’t happy to see people inappropriately talking about her weight and the perceived state of her health – and this led the star to deliver an epic clapback to her critics.
