“I’m doing this for me. I want to feel strong, beautiful, feminine and sexy.”

Do you like Céline Dion’s new look?
Many critics think the 50-year-old singer is too slim or her style is too outlandish. Trully the singer looks slimmer than her pre-widowhood days.
Following the death of her longtime husband, René Angélil, in January 2016. Dion began gravitating towards haute couture pieces, but she said that she’s not “trying to take chances,” but simply opting for clothes that make her “feel attractive.”
“I’m doing this for me. I want to feel strong, beautiful, feminine and sexy,” she said in an interview with Dan Wootton, of ITV, The Sun and The Dan Wootton Interview podcast.
Her new clothing choices are beffiting of her new weight – as Dion lost some consideranle weight and a little bit looks older than her age. But Dion doesn’t care what the critics think of her new size – she wants to be left alone.
“If I like it, I don’t want to talk about it. Don’t bother. Don’t take a picture,” she said. “If you like it, I’ll be there. If you don’t, leave me alone.”
Concerning her perceived romantic relation with her backup dancer, Pepe Munoz, said to be her boyfriend. Dion dispels the rumours saying:
“I am single,” she said. “The press said, ‘Oh my God, René just passed and now there’s another man.’ Yeah, there’s another man in my life but not the man in my life.”
“It was probably overwhelming for him at the beginning when we started working together because we were dancing together,” she told Wootton. “We bonded right away as friends, we had a good time. It evolved. But when people started to take pictures and it was like, ‘Who’s that guy? René?’ … Let’s not mix everything.”
“We’re friends, we’re best friends,” she explained. “Of course we hug and hold hands and go out, so people see that. I mean, he’s a gentleman. He’s giving me his hand to go out,” she said. “I don’t mind because he’s handsome and he’s my best friend.”
