London: Singer Celine Dion has blamed showbiz drug culture for Whitney Houston's death and compared her fate to other late stars such as Elvis Presley and Michael Jackson, who had substance abuse problems.

The "My Heart Will Go On" hitmaker has described the singer, who was found dead in the bathtub of Beverly Hilton hotel room on Saturday, as an amazing inspiration, reported a leading daily.

"It's just really unfortunate that drugs, bad people, bad influences took over. It took over her dreams, her love and her motherhood. When you think about Elvis Presley and Marilyn Monroe and Michael Jackson and Amy Winehouse ... time after time we lose people taking pills to perform, taking pills to wake up and taking pills to go to bed," Dion said.

The 43-year-old singer admits she is scared of the drug culture in showbusiness and is too afraid to attend celebrity parties as a result.

"I'm scared of showbusiness, I'm scared of drugs, I'm scared of hanging out, and that's why I don't do parties and hang out," Dion added.
