EVERYONE is chiming in on the death of Whitney Houston!! EVERYONE!!

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!!

Celine explains:

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.

Good points, Celine!! Good points!!

We bet Dr. Drew would be so proud of her!!!

    She will turn out to be exactly RIGHT ON THE MARK. It's not hard to figure out. love Whitney but she was for years an addict and never did get a handle on it. So there is nothing wrong with speaking the truth, and admiring her in the same sentence, as Celine did.

    I like that she is open about the drugs. It is so much easier to just think about Whitney at her best and ignore the downfall - like people did with MJ. It is so tragic that she died, but it is also tragic how she chose to live. The ugly truth is that had she not died, she would have gone to the Grammy's and in all likelihood it would have been yet another embarrassing public display, and people would have been criticizing her, laughing at her, or ignoring her - that is also tragic.

    It is unfortunate that such an amazing talent has been lost. Addiction is an extremely difficult disease to overcome. My deepest condolences to her daughter and the rest of her family. Unfortunately, her death will not change how people suffering from addictions live their lives. Drugs become as necessary to an addicts life as Oxygen.

    Im Angie Stottlemyer. I am a homewrecker and I don't even care what I do to innocent children lives. As long as I have a man that's all that matters because I have daddy issues where my dad died years ago. I need tons of intensive therapy. I act like I'm better than everyone else but I'm basically a common whore, just above a street walker. I have std's but it don't matter, i have a boyfriend and that's all i care about, not my kids or anyone else's kids. I have sex in my car with random strangers and brag about it on fb

    The Auto-Play of this was NOT cool. Had to turn my bloody speakers off. I stopped the video and it stopped, then it Started AGAIN… in side video, that I didn't find till later after the whole page loaded. F-ing Annoying Big Time!

    So true, oh my god shes spot on. I'm glad shes also open about her opinion on drugs and whatnot, as well.

    She's right, the people who party the most out of the music and acting crowd are usually heavy users. Just look at the likes of Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, Vince Neil, etc, etc., who love to party and are always in trouble. People who don't need to hang out at Hollywood parties are usually the ones who live the longest in Hollywood. Sad, but true.

    Re: homewreckerhor – Sounds like someone i actually know in real life. There's a lot of people like this, and i try to stay far away from them.

    I think she clearly has a good point, but we can't assume that because someone is rich and famous that means is everything, i know successful,rich,loved people that are sad, and the fall into bad habits because they're empty on the inside. We don't know what "Having it all" means to everyone, and those celebritries who died because of drugs were clearly empty and not satisfied, there's something beyond money and fame.
    But i also think Celine was being honest and open about drugs and life in the spotlight, which not many celebs admit their fears.

    Performers become so identified with that celebrated performing persona that when the music fades, they must, must, must discover that they are so much more than just that performing person or they'll sink because of the resuming obscurity. They need to build a tangible life outside of the industry with friends or family that support them no matter what.

    I like that she said this - right on point and still in a sensitive way. I think more people need to wake up to this and figure out what could help.
