The absence of the Quebec singer in the ranking published by RollingStone is debated. His fans expressed their displeasure in front of the offices of the magazine in New York.
Celine Dion fans demonstrated on Friday in front of the magazine’s offices RollingStone in New York to criticize the absence of the Quebec singer from the ranking of the “200 best singers of all time”.
“Justice for Celine”, sang these baptized fans The Redheads.
Published on January 1 by the famous magazine, this ranking caused controversy because of its daring choices: Michael Jackson absent from the Top 50, Taylor Swift ranked higher than Christina Aguilera and Barbra Streisand and Celine Dion simply forgotten.
“This list has no legitimacy,” said Line Basbous, founder of The Redheads and organizer of the protest. “We want to support [à Céline Dion] and make sure that RollingStone hear the fans. This list is ridiculous.”
“In Quebec, the fact that she is not mentioned in the list does not make any sense. She has been in our lives from the beginning,” another protester added to variety.
Actress Yvette Nicole Brown, star of the series Communityhas already been indignant at the absence of the Quebec singer on Twitter: “They relegated THE Michael Jackson to 86th place?! And Celine Dion does not appear AT ALL?! Frankly, Rolling Stone.”
The Top 10, on the other hand, seems to satisfy readers: we find Otis Redding, Beyonce, Ray Charles, Mariah Carey, whitney houston and, in the first place, Aretha Franklin.
