“Rolling Stone” awards: the author of several Celine songs protests
Celine Dion’s exclusion from a list of the 200 greatest singers of all time from Rolling Stone magazine reacted. Several fans of the diva expressed their displeasure on social media, as did the author of several of her songs, Diane Warren.
“Really? A list of the greatest singers and Céline Dion is not part of it?”, questioned the American, after going there with a statement that was corrosive to say the least.
One more reason these stupid ass lists don't mean shit. Really??? A list of greatest singers @RollingStone and #CelineDion isn't on it??🙄

Um, @RollingStone, you done lost your musical mind. Make haste with a correction–adding Celine to this list–if you want to retain any semblance of legitimacy.
