Um, did you girls read the article? Like seriously, I'm so not liking her anymore. How can she say that after everything Celine Dion is going through AND PUBLICLY?!?

Sorry, I normally lurk & don't post but this is close to my heart & my home was here for a LONG TIME so this really ticks me off.

I completely agree with you! I couldn't believe she took that stance on it. It makes me wonder because I thought it was really strange that at her age she just "happened to get pregnant with twins." I don't know, maybe I'm bitter.... lol.

She had some help, either fertility drugs or IUI. She didn't just pop out twins after trying for so long. It does make me like her less, not that I liked her much before she opened her mouth and said way too much for her own good. Makes me mad too.

I think she used some sort of fertility help.. she just has enough money to hide it... As her song says don't be fooled by the rocks that shes got she's just an arrogant ignorant bit** from the block!!! lol I didn't like her to begin with so my feels are even worse..

She's fooling herself if she thinks no one knows she had help.

I knew you girls would understand. It just baffles me that after Celine is on the cover of People, openly discussing her fight w/ infertility, that this loud mouth, arrogant, SOB would actually have the balls to make her opinion nationally known. Does she not have any brains? Oh, wait. I spose not. Look at her life. And, yeah. We all know she had a little help. Just a little. How ever that help came whether it was in the form of a pill or an IUI, it was still help & still "messing w/ God's plan".

I've never liked her music or her acting....I'd definitely say she is in denial, ignorant or both.

I think ignorant is an uderstatement....I don't know who she is trying to impress or FOOL by saying she wouldn't mess with IVF...but I have NO DOUBT that she sought some sort of Medical Assistance in order to conceive her twins. It's just a shame that she's TOO ASHAMED to embrace the path she took and INSPIRE other women....instead she makes them feel like they are doing something "wrong" by "messing with" natural conception.......shame on her

Exactly. She was in our shoes. She had MA in order to get the twins & she has the balls to say otherwise. Hmft. I'm PO'ed.

hmmm sounds to me like she didnt care too much to have children anyway since she repeatedly said if it happens good and if not then thats good too! ugh! If you REALLY want kids then not having them isn't even an option, so until she knows what it feels like to be deprived of something you feel you cant live without she doesnt have the right to say anything negative about it. Maybe if someone would deprive her of something like shoes or money she would find any means to make it happen! grrr this irritates me...can u tell???

I wish more celebs would be open with their fertility struggles so that it is not such a "taboo" topic. Infertility is nothing to be ashamed of, why act like it is?

I never liked her much to begin with and this just confirmed it for me. She says about believing in God and having faith in Him and not messing with that....Well God gave us all free will and allowed us to have science help those of us who need help with fertility and if he didn't there would be many miracles of God who would not be in this world today.

I agree! And if you believe in God then you believe He has to make conception happen even with MA so God is still involved very much and this is just the method He chose to make this particular miracle. God uses "set backs" and "impossible things" such as infertility in our lives to show the world just how mighty He is in us that even though we had a hard time or was told it would be impossible to conceive that He can make it happen!
