Celine Dion is a living legend, just like her colleague and friend Whitney Houston was before she tragically passed away on Saturday at the young age of 48. And Celine truly believes that fame and the introduction of bad influences is what got the best of Whitney, just like it did to stars Amy Winehouse and Michael Jackson

"It's just really unfortunate that drugs, bad people, bad influences took over her dreams, her motherhood," Celine told Good Morning America of Whitney, who has an 18-year-old daughter Bobbi Kristina with her ex-husband Bobby Brown. "When you think about Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe, Amy Winehouse and Michael Jackson . . . To get into drugs like that for whatever reason — because of stress, bad influence, whatever."

Celine says that Whitney was "an amazing inspiration," but took the wrong path following her success and stardom, succumbing to the various temptations involved with "show business." 

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

Whitney famously confessed to using cocaine, marijuana and pills in a 2002 interview with Diane Sawyer. Obviously, Celine feels these things are what ended her legendary career and her promising future as not only a singer, but a mother.
