While the tweets continue to flow in and the celebrities continue to comment, one singer has A LOT to say about dear Whitney.
Celine Dion always looked up to Whitney as a singing inspiration, but she wasn't too comfortable with her leisure activities, that's for sure!!
Whitney's been an amazing inspiration for me. I've been singing with her my whole career, actually. I wanted to have a career like hers, sing like her, look beautiful like her.
It's just very unfortunate that drugs and, I don't know, bad people or bad influences took over. It took over her dreams, it took over her love and motherhood…
I mean, you think about Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe, Michael Jackson, Amy Winehouse, to get into drugs like that for whatever reason, is it because of the stress, the stress and bad influence, what happens? What happens when you have everything?
And it didn't just stop there! Celine became so emotional speaking on the loss, she began to open up on her fears of falling into the same crowd:
It's tragic. Her music will live forever, but it's not enough. Time after time we lose people—it's too soon and there's no time for that. I mean, taking pills to go perform and taking pills to wake up and taking pills to go to bed. It's so unfortunate.
There's something that happens that I don't understand, and that's why I'm so scared. I'm scared of show business, I'm scared of drugs, I'm scared of hanging out, and that's why I don't do parties and hanging out, and that's why I'm not part of show business. We have to be afraid.
During her candid chat with correspondent Bill Whitaker, the KUWTK starlet credited her continued success to her activities on social media. Of course, this interview now seems in poor taste as Keeks' online use has been blamed for making her the target of an armed robbery in Paris earlier this month. Oof.
Perhaps this segment can now be used as a learning tool for Kimmie and other celebrities? Be sure to ch-ch-check out the HIGHlights from the special for yourself (below)!
