Celine Dion poses topless
The stunning Canadian songstress calls the Grammy-winning singer “a total package” in an interview for V Magazine’s upcoming Travel issue.”I think that her whole image is very good!” the 44-year-old star said. “The way that she is will definitely help the new generation of girls accept themselves.” Dion sang the British chart-topper’s praises during a chic black and white photoshoot at her Florida home – her first non-promotional magazine shoot in nearly six years. The “My Heart Will Go On” singer said that Adele has the potential to bring change to an industry that she’s always been wary of – a feeling that’s increased in the wake of fellow pop legend Whitney Houston’s death. “I have always been scared of the industry,” Dion said. “I was just in shock when Whitney’s life had been taken because of drugs. It’s a big loss for all of us.” But the star says she won’t let her concerns stop her from taking the stage. “I was brought into this world to do this, no doubt,” she said, though acknowledging that she’s taken on a much more important endeavor in recent years – motherhood. “I thought I had a life before, but until I was a mom, I had no idea. I’m more grounded now than ever before,” she said. The confidence she’s gained from being a mother shows. “I’ve been an open book all my life, and I think that’s why people like me,” Dion said. “I’ve been criticized for it, but I’m not forcing myself to be the person that you see.” V Magazine’s Travel issue hits stands on Aug. 30.
