Supposedly, her show is cancelled. Maybe this has something to do with it?

Why would anyone want to cough up 900$ to see her anyway. That's redonkulous.

Nov. 20, 2008

Barf out! Gag me with a spoon! Please, someone explain the attraction. Why do people pay money to hear that donkey braying? My idea of torture is to be strapped to a chair and force fed Celine Dion until I confess sins I never committed. Blech.

I agree with you 110% MsGrant. She also looks scary, you would think with all the money she makes from people.... Ahh those Canadians. :)

Nov. 20, 2008

Well fumbler, looks like you're in good company...

Nov. 20, 2008

Response to post #5. Wow that was original. I have never read a comment from you like that before. You Fumbles, really are something special.....

Nov. 21, 2008

Do they really have almonds in Switzerland?

Nov. 21, 2008

What a ridiculous little non-story!

ALL artists have riders specifying their (or their staff's) needs/wants for each venue. The examples provided for both Celine Dion and New Kids on the Block are pretty boring and routine compared to some of the bizarre requests. You use the "Who's the Diva?" headline for THAT? How silly.

Lame story. Oh and the photo is over 5 years old, at least get a more recent stock photo!
