Celine Dion praises Adele


Celine Dion is convinced fellow singer Adele will help to change the music industry by refusing to slim down, and she will inspire new generations of young, female singers to love their bodies.

Bing: Celine Dion's Vegas act

The hit maker is full of praise for the young Brit, who has kept her curves since finding fame, and she hopes Adele's global stardom will prove that women in the music industry don't need to be skinny to be successful.

Dion tells Vegas magazine, "I love literally everything about her. I love her extreme talent. I love her writing. Her songs come from the soul. She's incredibly beautiful. I think it's very refreshing to see, and don't get me wrong when I say this, somebody who is not looking extremely anorexic. I know for a fact, as much as you do, that the music industry makes kids get sick. ... She is going to help us, she's going to help the world. It's going to be bad when I meet her. I'm going to give her the biggest hug. I'm not kidding."

Now for my comment and I know I am going to get some crap answers. Before Adele (and even still) there was and is Celine Dion. I cannot for the live of me understand that Adele received more credit in a short time, than Celine Dion. What I see the problem is, that right now you only have Adele to chose from, besides Beyonce, but is Adele a super duper, never before encountered singer, No far from it. I like her songs, they are o.k. even if a little one sided, but would I say she is better and deserves to be the record breaking ultimate Singing Star, whos Album dominated the charts for weeks on end, NO, simply because Celine Dion, Whitney Houston, Anita Baker, God too many to mention were by far more superior in their vocal abilities and did what Adele is doing now a hell of a lot better, so why did they not get the chance to break records, simply because in their time you simply had a list of Divas to chose from, while in todays time, the lack of great singers and true musicians is so limited, that Adele looks like a Wunderkind! Oh the irony of it though.

Isn't Jennifer Hudson doing a commercial for Weight Watcher as she is getting thinner? I could be wrong.

Celine, don't know jack.  Arethea Franklin has never been thin, Jennifer Hudson either and both of them can sing their ****'s off!  Celine is just mad because after her mega hit My heart will go on, she hasn't done anything!
