    Celine Dion Admits She’s Afraid of Hollywood Partying

    Listening to Celine Dion talk about Whitney Houston’s death is not only sad, but it reveals a truth about Hollywood.

    In an interview with Good Morning America, Dion discusses Houston and how she believes drugs took over Houston’s life. Dion sounds upset and confused about why someone who seems to have so much would turn to drugs. Dion also reveals she herself fears show business, and does her job and goes home.

    Check out the following news clip.

    I’m scared of show business, I’m scared of drugs, I’m scared of hanging out, and that’s why I don’t do parties and hanging out, and that’s why I’m not part of show business. We have to be afraid (Celine Dion).

    Is she right? Should celebrities be afraid of show business, parties, and hanging out? The reality is that so many Hollywood stars have died from substance overdoses. Just recently, we’ve lost Michael Jackson, Amy Winehouse, and Heath Ledger, to name a few. I don’t know what parties are like in Hollywood, but evidence from Lindsey Lohan, Paris Hilton, and Demi Moore confirms that drugs are prevalent.

    Dion questions how someone from a great family can still be influenced by the wrong crowd. But the devil is in drugs and everything else that tempts people. The devil puts his hold on all that is good, and once he has a hold on you, it’s very hard to fight him.

    That’s why it’s best to avoid temptation altogether. Stay away from parties that present it, and stay away from people who try to tempt you. Get the job done and get out!

    The righteous chooses his friends carefully: but the way of the wicked leads them astray (Proverbs 12:26).

    Dion attributes Houston’s demise to partying and hanging out with the wrong crowd, but it’s not only Hollywood and show business that present temptation. We are all tempted every day.

    We too should all be careful about the parties we attend and the people we hang out with. I don’t think we should be so afraid that we become hermits, but we should be so afraid that we are constantly cautious.

    We all will be tempted throughout our lives, but only we can choose to fall for the temptation or walk away. God will help us, but we have to choose Him.

    There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it (1 Corinthians 10:13).

    Dion’s honesty about the Hollywood scene is refreshing. She is not afraid to say she’s afraid, and that’s what makes her smart. I think we could all learn from her philosophy.

    We should not be afraid to admit we are afraid. We should be strong enough to remove ourselves from any situation that presents temptation, or better still, avoid them altogether. Dion is a huge star, but she would rather go home after doing her job than hang out with the crowd.

    Dion doesn’t pretend that she is stronger than temptation. Maybe she is, but why even put that to the test? In fact, her strength is shown in her realization of temptation and her decision to not be a part of it. This is something we can take as great advice.

    What do you think about Dion’s philosophy, “do your job and go home”? Have you ever been to a party where temptation was prevalent, or do you think you are too strong of a person to be tempted?
