    Being a celebrity has its advantages, from designer clothes to red carpet events, but it also has its drawbacks, from the endless criticism to the dreaded rumour mill.

    One of the most damaging phenomenons inflicted on celebrities nowadays is body-shaming, with everyone from Victoria Beckham to Meghan Markle feeling the full brunt of it.

    The latest celebrity to be targeted by body shaming is Celine Dion.

    The 51-year-old has made news recently, with fans voicing their concerns for her weight, accusing the singer of being too skinny.

    This week, Celine addressed the online criticism in an interview with Entertainment Tonight Canada, explaining: ’you can’t please everyone’.

    ‘Is there anything wrong about my body? I’ve always been very thin,’ she explained. ‘I do ballet. I do a lot of stretching and I work out because it helps my mind, body and soul.’

    Going on to talk about the bullying comments, she continued: ‘If you don’t want to be criticised, you are in the wrong place.

    ‘I take what’s good for me. I leave behind what is not good for me. I let my management take care of that, and if it hurts anyone, they will take care of that. And I need to focus on what’s right for me, how I feel and, last but not least, you can’t please everybody.’

    Celine Dion is currently on her Courage Tour.
