DION BOASTS 3,000 PAIRS OF SHOES
Say what you will about Celine Dion but I have to tip my trilby to the woman, who has confessed she owns about 3,000 pairs of shoes.
The 43-year-old singer has told the Daily Telegraph she is obsessed with footwear and has admitted to being unable to resist adding to her collection, 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 ever glamorous singer is not gloating too freely though and says she 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.
"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.
This is precisely why I don't count my shoes. Bless her.
