Celine Dion's Recent Instagram Post Has Fans Worried About Her Health

For the last 16 years, Celine Dion has been singing and dancing to sold out crowds at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. While she just made headlines for closing out the epic residency, she is once again in the news, this time for a photo she posted on Instagram. The pic shows the 51-year-old legend sitting on a floor in a black leather skirt and a black t-shirt that says "FOMO." She captioned the shot "F.O.M.O. It means Fear of Missing Out, or does it?" but rather than answering that question, a majority of the comments are about with how Celine looks in the photo.
Many of the commenters focused on Celine's physique, with dozens of fans noting that she is too skinny. Some tried to gently point it out while others flat-out shamed the singing star:
Of course, Celine's fans stood up for her, but they didn't need to since the singer herself has previously addressed these concerns. A couple months ago, she told People that her busy schedule, which is filled with performances, rehearsals and lots of dancing, is what's responsible for her weight loss.
She explained, "Dancing has been in my DNA all of my life. It's a dream. And so hard! I do [ballet practice] four times a week. People say, 'She's a lot thinner' but I'm working hard. I like to move and [weight loss] comes with it."
She's also been more direct with her trolls. Earlier in the year when asked by The Sun about her fashion choices and body, she stated, "I'm doing this for me. I want to feel strong, beautiful, feminine and sexy. If I like it, I don't want to talk about it. Don't bother. Don't take a picture. If you like it, I'll be there. If you don't, leave me alone."
Don't expect Celine to slow down even though her Vegas residency has ended. She heads out on the Courage World Tour in September. Get all her dates here.
