Celine Dion: 'Drugs, Bad People' Caused Whitney Houston's Death

Apparently, Celine Dion is a toxicologist now and has confirmed that Whitney Houston’s death was indeed caused by drugs.

Okay, she’s probably not far off, but some feel Celine Dion spoke out of turn when she said:

“It’s just really unfortunate that drugs, bad people or bad influence took over. It took over [Whitney]’s dreams. It took over her love and motherhood.”

Celine called ‘Good Morning America’ on Monday to talk about the late pop singer and offer her two cents about drugs and the entertainment industry. Dion continued:

“When you think about Elvis Presley and Marilyn Monroe and Michael Jackson and Amy Winehouse, to get into drugs like that, for whatever reason… Is it because of the stress and bad influence? What happens when you have everything? What happens when you have love, support, the family, motherhood? You have responsibilities of a mother and then something happens and it destroys everything.”

Dion says she chooses to stay out of the hoopla of the entertainment industry.

“That’s why I don’t do parties and I don’t hang out. That’s why I’m not part of show business. We have to be afraid…Taking pills to go perform and taking pills to wake up and taking pills to go to bed. It’s so unfortunate,” she said.

I mean, I get what Celine Dion is saying, but right now, she’s really coming across as that friend you don’t call when you go out to party with everyone else.

“I’ve always said you have to have fun and do music and you can never be part of show business because you don’t what it’s going to get yourself into,” Dion continued. “You have to do your work and get out of there.”
