Celine Dion Blames Drugs, Hollywood for Whitney Houston Death

by at . Comments

Celine Dion called in to Good Morning America today and had A LOT to say about Whitney Houston, an artist Dion referred to as "an amazing inspiration."

"It's just really unfortunate that drugs, bad people, bad influences took over her dreams, her motherhood," said the singer. "When you think about Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe, Amy Winehouse, Michael Jackson.. To get into drugs like that for whatever reason - because of stress, bad influence, whatever."

While the official coroner's report won't be available for weeks, sources say Houston died from a mixture of drugs and alcohol. There were bottles of Ibuprofen, Xanax, Midol and Amoxicillin for at the scene.

Whitney, sadly, left behind an 18-year old daughter, Bobbi Kristina, who is suffering terribly without her mother.

And Dion just finds the whole thing tragic, blaming the overall lifestyle of Hollywood a bit for the downfall of this icon.

"What happens when you have everything? Love, support, motherhood... Something happens that I don't understand. That's why I'm scared of show business, of drugs and hanging out. That's why I don't go to parties!"
