NEW YORK (AP) _ Celine Dion wants the rumors about her being anorexic to stop.

``I don’t have an eating problem, and there’s nothing more I can say about that,″ she tells this week’s edition of People magazine.

Dion, who is 5-foot-7 and 115 pounds, said her thin physique comes from her high metabolism.

``I’m lucky,″ she said. ``If I had a problem with my health, I would let my fans know.″

The 30-year-old Canadian singer, who rose to fame with her rendition of the ``Titanic″ movie theme, ``My Heart Will Go On,″ stunned fans by saying she will take a yearlong break to spend time with her husband, beginning next January.

``I can’t wait to do normal things _ like just doing your own groceries, looking for your own tomatoes,″ she said. ``I just can’t wait to get up in the morning and look awful. I’m looking forward to getting bored.″
