London: Singer Celine Dion says that she is a shoe addict and owns "about 3,000" pairs of different footwear.

The 43-year-old admits she can't resist adding more pairs to her footwear range when she goes out shopping.

"If you have, let's say, 600 pairs of shoes, you're considered a freak? I have about 3,000 pairs. Look, some people do drugs, and I buy shoes," a website quoted Dion as saying.
