Mlebourne: Celine Dion has confessed about her obsession with footwear and revealed that she owns about 3,000 pairs.
The 43-year-old singer is obsessed with footwear and has admitted to being unable to resist adding to her collection when she goes out shopping, but she doesn’t feel guilty because it’s her only real vice.
“If you have, let’s say, 600 pairs of shoes, you’re considered a freak? I have about 3,000 pairs. Look, some people do drugs, and I buy shoes,” the Daily Telegraph quoted her as saying.
The ‘My Heart Will Go On’ singer feels very lucky to be able to buy expensive shoes and other luxuries and admits the spending power she now has and the lavish Florida estate she lives at with her husband Rene Angelil and their children - 10-year-old son Rene-Charles and 13-month-old twins Eddy and Nelson – is very different to the house she was raised in.
Dion, who has sold millions of albums worldwide, has acknowledged her fans as being responsible for giving her a great life and she is thankful that after 30 years people still want to come and see her perform.
“My fans bought me my house. They bought my records … I’m very fortunate, and people have bought my albums year after year, and they come to see the shows, and it’s expensive, and they still come,” she added.
