Enthusiasts of Celine Dion Express Displeasure over Omission from Rolling Stone Compilation

Dion was notably absent from the “200 Best Vocalists of All Time” catalog.

In the past week, the well-respected music publication Rolling Stone unveiled an article listing the “200 Greatest Singers of All Time.” The document showcased numerous eminent figures in an array of musical categories, such as Elton John, Barry White, Freddie Mercury, Billie Eilish, and others. However, vigilant readers noticed a conspicuous gap in the lineup: the renowned vocalist Celine Dion.

Dion’s most fervent supporters, all participants of a social media community known as The Red Heads, were not content. This led fifteen of them to embark on a journey from Montreal, Canada to New York City to register their disapproval of her exclusion from the compilation directly in front of the headquarters of Rolling Stone.

“The validity of the list is seriously in question,” Line Basbous, the founder of Redheads who spearheaded the demonstration, affirmed in a statement shared with Variety. “Our intention was to demonstrate our backing for her and ensure that Rolling Stone acknowledges the fans’ sentiments. The catalog is preposterous. No mention of Madonna, no mention of Celine. It’s evident that their focus is on American singers, and we find this perplexing.”

Supporter Charles Lemay emphasized Dion’s specific importance within Canada, the home country of all the protesters. “In Quebec, it’s unthinkable that she’s not acknowledged in the compilation. She has been a part of all our lives from the very beginning.”

No official remarks have been made by Rolling Stone regarding the issue at the present time.
