There has been no official cause of Whitney Houston’s death, but there certainly seems to be a trend of what people think could have happened to the beloved singer that many of her peers considered an inspiration to their own careers.
Celine Dion is one of those singers, who admits to being heavily influenced by the “I Will Always Love You” singer. But she did call into Good Morning America this week to talk about how Houston’s drug-influenced life ultimately led to her untimely death.
"Whitney's been an amazing inspiration for me," the “My Heart Will Go On” singer said, E! Online reports. "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.”
She continues on to say how “unfortunate” it is that "drugs and, I don't know, bad people or bad influences took over.”
She maintained, “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?
She also asked the gripping question, “What happens when you have everything?"
That question led to Dion’s revealing that she is “scared of show business,” Entertainment Weekly reports.
“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."
