Céline Dion, who is 55 years old, made a rare appearance at the Grammys after sharing her diagnosis of Stiff Person Syndrome (SPS) over a year ago. This autoimmune disorder has caused her to postpone her highly anticipated tour and stay out of the public eye.
SPS has posed significant challenges for Céline, causing spasms and affecting her ability to walk and use her vocal cords. In a heartfelt Instagram post, Céline shared her ongoing health struggles and announced the rescheduling of her shows to prioritize her well-being. Despite the difficulties, Céline remains committed to eventually returning to the stage.
The lack of understanding and available support for SPS has made it even harder for Céline to deal with her condition. However, her sister, Claudette Dion, expressed confidence in Céline’s resilience and talent, sending positive vibes for her comeback.
At this year’s Grammy awards, Céline Dion presented the Album of the Year award to Taylor Swift for her album “Midnights.” However, Taylor’s acceptance of the award without acknowledging Céline onstage received criticism online.
People took to social media to express their disapproval, calling Taylor “disgusting” and accusing her of disrespect. Some went as far as labeling her behavior as “classless personified” for seemingly ignoring Céline’s presence during the ceremony.
Others speculated that Taylor’s actions might have been guided by considerations related to Céline’s health condition. They suggested that Taylor was told not to touch Céline due to her syndrome, explaining Taylor’s hesitation and eventual interaction backstage.
Despite the controversy, backstage photos show Taylor and Céline together, along with Céline’s son René-Charles, all smiles and seemingly dispelling any tension between them.
Taylor Swift’s win for Album of the Year at the Grammys marks the fourth time she has received this prestigious award, making her the first person to achieve this feat. With such a remarkable achievement, everyone wonders if Taylor can manage to take home a fifth win next year.
