Might be a bit early to run around claiming drugs killed Whitney Houston. Maybe we should instead wait to hear from the coroner to start making public statements? Of course the first thing I thought was that Whitney died from some sort of drug overdose (with her history it’s not a big stretch), but I wouldn’t go out and claim it publicly!
Speaking this morning via phone on Good Morning America, Celine Dion didn’t hold back when talking about Houston’s troubled life and legendary career.
“It’s just really unfortunate that drugs, bad people, bad influences took over her dreams, her motherhood,” the French-Canadian star, 43, said of Houston, who famously fessed up in a 2002 interview with Diane Sawyer about using cocaine, marijuana and pills. “When you think about Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe, Amy Winehouse, Michael Jackson . . . To get into drugs like that for whatever reason–because of stress, bad influence, whatever.”
Dion lamented that her immensely talented idol, who left behind daughter Bobbi Kristina, apparently succumbed like other superstars before her. “What happens when you have everything? Love, support, motherhood…Something happens that I don’t understand. That’s why I’m scared of show business, of drugs and hanging out. That’s why I don’t go to parties!”
What do you think? Was Celine out of line – or do you agree with her?
