I am everything because you despised me!
the fans cried Rolling Stone magazine committed a foul last weekend when it excluded Celine Dion from the magazine’s “200 Greatest Singers of All Time” list.
Roster announced on Twitter and publications was already on the defensive.
“Before you start scrolling (and commenting) please remember that this is not a list of the best voices, but of the best singers,” the tweet said. Genius is transcendent.”
But when the Dion stalwart realized that the Canadian chanteuse wasn’t considered transcendent enough to rate the top 200, he reacted as if he had hit an iceberg, dragging magazines side by side. I was. shit.
“Rolling Stone must exit the music journalism business immediately.” Twitter user mtl_vocalist said:.
Furious @elasticdijon added“The fact that Celine Dion is nowhere in the top 200 is a crime against humanity.”
And user @JamieCollabro said, “With all due respect, this list borders on rebellious, except for Celine Dion, arguably the greatest vocal technician of all time.”
Dion, 54, ranks as one of the best-selling solo artists of all time with over 250 million albums sold.
In addition, her two Las Vegas residencies at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, ‘A New Day’ and ‘Celine’, collectively generated $681 million.
There were other surprises on Rolling Stone’s list. Michael Jackson was No. 86, Kurt Cobain was No. 36, and Taylor Swift was No. 102, well ahead of Barbra Streisand, No. 147. All right, still heavy metal Wailer Ozzy Osbourne did.
Rolling Stone magazine’s top five picks are 1. Aretha Franklin, 2. Whitney Houston, 3. Sam Cooke, 4. Billie Holiday, and 5. Mariah Carey.
Dion was recently forced to cancel a planned tour after revealing he was diagnosed with a rare and incurable disease called stiff person syndrome.
