Let's All Leave Celine's Legs Alone, Okay?

Let's All Leave Celine's Legs Alone, Okay?

I don't know if you heard the recent brouhaha over Celine Dion, but some news folks aren't too happy with her? Why, you ask? Because — horror of horrors — our Quebecoise homegirl has leg hair. And it showed up in photographs during her concert. I know, it's inexcusable.

Look, I'm probably never going to be Celine's biggest fan musically, but when a major metropolitan newspaper starts nitpicking her body hair, you can bet I'm on Team Celine. I'm guessing her fans couldn't care less whether she shaves her legs or not; they're just there to experience her overall nuttiness and music. Beyond that, it's 2008 — shouldn't we be beyond tsk-tsking a grown woman for having a little light peach fuzz on her gams?

Team Celine. While I would never go out w/ my legs hairy, maybe Celine was too busy that night. Whatever...I'm still on her side.

They have absolutely nothing else to dish about, so they're resorting to ridiculing an international singer's leg hairs... pathetic, honestly. WTF moment here!

ha my mom doesn't shave past her knee either! i do but in the winter i shave once every week or two- unless i'm expecting company as someone above put it lol so i'm sure at the end of a week or two my legs look pretty bad but who cares!

My mom told me to never shave past the knee. So when I saw the "controversy" on Perez I thought it might be a generational beauty thing. I used to shave past the knee if I would wear shorts, but honestly this does not bother me at all.

Good for Celine! She looks absolutely gorgeous, so what if she's a little fuzzy. It certainly doesn't detract from her looks or her stage presence, and I highly doubt any of the audience members were going to feel up her legs. How silly.

April's Playboy centerfold has unshaven legs as well. I thought it was refreshing to see. It's like we women have to shave and pluck and wax every inch of ourselves except the hair on our scalps (which we try to make thicker, natch) to be attractive.

Ha, Martini - I used to be one of those obsessive shavers, no matter what, I would shave all the way above the knee! I have gotten so busy though that in the winter I let it go unless I am going out or expecting um, company. ;)

My female relatives from Germany were always on my case for shaving my legs and underarms.They would say"it will grow back as long and thick as a man's beard!!" That has not happened but they still keep saying it !

w.t.f. what kind of people spend their time worrying about this?

WTH? It's just leg hair, and leg hair above the knee at that! Okay, maybe it would look nicer if she shaved or w/e, but seriously... it's NOT that big a deal. People have too much time on their hands.

:ROTFL: this is news! I don't think anyone there complained and why is it a big deal? It is not a matter of hygiene if you don't shave? I see her as a very confident woman who wouldn't care about such things- she is probably laughing at this nonsense-IMO.

Leg hair above the knee can be very very fair- to the point you can barely see it. Mine is, and I don't shave it all off either. I honestly don't see what the big deal is, at all.

Hair legs is not newsworthy, they probably didn't know what to talk about. Paris more relevant then Celine? I'm sorry for me actual talent, someone who is famous to sing, who is the female who sold the most records in the he world is more relevant than someone who is famous for being... I don't even know or cares about what she's famous for. So tired of people thinking that skank is cool.

I know what that is, thats the fuzz you get when you shave your legs but only above the knee because usuallly nobody sees your upper tighs. But seriosuly to condone a woman because she hasn't shaved her legs? What is the world coming to? Like someone said on the nydailynews site, its just hair,"R-Kelly is still out on the streets after ******* on a 14 or15 year old girl lets talk about that!".

I agree, after all these hairs aren't even dark! If it weren't for the lighting, you wouldn't even see them!

It's not newsworthy except for a site like Perez...which is just gossip. But yes, they stuck out straight so maybe she should think about some grooming, it is not for us to say though. It's not peach fuzz after you've removed it once and it decides to grow back wonky. You have to continue to deal with that, then. But it is her personal business. What I don't understand is what chelly said...why did she relate hygiene with Brazilians and why does it matter more if these were Paris Hilton's legs? I'm confuzzled.
