Celine Dion‘s coronary heart would possibly go on, however her followers are having a tough time getting previous this snub by Rolling Stone … which left her off their checklist of G.O.A.T. crooners.
The journal posted a refreshed 200 Greatest Singers of All Time — and their roster is fairly in depth … spanning many years of music, and even roping in some acts which are elevating eyebrows (like Ozzy Osbourne, for instance). Still, it is a well-rounded mashup of expertise.
While some no-brainers made the minimize — Aretha, Whitney, Adele, Michael, Mariah, Freddie, and many others. — there’s one one who’s noticeably lacking completely … Ms. Titanic herself.
There are different names that have been excluded, that are drawing some outrage, however none fairly measure as much as Celine not being included. Fact is … she is much and away one of the completed and impactful singers in fashionable historical past, commercially and critically.

Plus, seven of her albums have bought at the least 10 million copies worldwide — a benchmark solely a handful of solo feminine artists have achieved. Several of her information have been licensed gold, platinum and diamond — and he or she’s obtained a number of #1 hits from a charts perspective.
Even by Rolling Stone’s personal customary on what warrants a terrific “singer” — the place they contemplate the full breadth of their work and showmanship, moderately than deal with uncooked vocal expertise — Celine checks all of the containers after which some. She needs to be on there someplace.
Celine herself does not appear to thoughts. She hasn’t responded to the slight, however moderately … is busy celebrating her storied profession. Still, as some have famous — somebody screwed the pooch right here.
