Celine Dion is convinced fellow singer Adele will help to change the music industry by refusing to slim down as she will inspire new generations of young female singers to love their body.
The My Heart Will Go On hitmaker is full of praise for the young Brit, who has kept her curves since finding fame, and she hopes Adele's global stardom will prove that women in the music industry don't need to be skinny to be successful.
Dion tells Vegas magazine, "I love literally everything about her. I love her extreme talent. I love her writing. Her songs come from the soul. She's incredibly beautiful. I think it's very refreshing to see, and don't get me wrong when I say this, somebody who is not looking extremely anorexic. I know for a fact, as much as you do, that the music industry makes kids get sick...
"She is going to help us, she's going to help the world. It's going to be bad when I meet her. I'm going to give her the biggest hug. I'm not kidding."
