Celine Dion Parody Squelched

The bitch can’t take a joke. Have I ever mentioned how much I dislike her?

    Canadian pop diva Celine Dion doesn’t like mockery, or maybe it’s her husband and manager Rene Angelil.

    Angelil sent a notice of claim to a popular Montreal-based radio station, demanding it stop playing a parody of Dion’s song “I’m Alive,” in which the singer is called, among other things, “annoying.”

    The radio station claims it was only trying to be funny, but Angelil didn’t laugh at the joke.

    “They took off her voice and invented vulgar lyrics. It’s unacceptable,” he told reporters on Thursday, stressing that copyright law prevented such unauthorized use of a recording.

    The Dion parody was withdrawn on Thursday.

Yes, “annoying” is such a “vulgar” word. You would think after selling 100 million records that perhaps they wouldn’t be quite so insecure.

    I wonder what Celene Dion would make of this?

    I personally love Celene’s songs and I’m mad about the song I’m alive cus it really makes me alive.

    Speaking of Celine … did anyone catch her outrageous nonsense on Larry King Live? I tell you, I will not support anything the b*(ch is associated with now. I bet that if a band of roving thugs knocked on her door and asked her if they could “touch her bigscreen TV”, she would not let them in. I was born and raised in New Orleans and I was more than a little upset at her innuendos and comments. She sounded totally uneducated and dumb on Larry King Live. She even LOOKED dumb flailing her arms and crying. Sorry, but in my book her stock went down to the dumper. I am outraged about so much associated with the Katrina support, so I won’t go off on a tangent here.

    I can’t even look at her she is so annoying. Comes across as uneducated, etc…..that’s because She is uneducated. And what’s with the rubbing herself, puckering her lips and stareing up at the ceiling. Anyone see the Simpson’s episode where Homer, Apu and Grandpa go up to Canada to get cheaper prescription drugs. A sign at the border says “WELCOME TO CANADA. NOW CELINE DION FREE” BAAAAAAA

    I’m still wondering what the big joke is about Celine Dion. I love her voice and the music she sings. Is it something other than being annoying, or her speech, or her hand movements, or the fact that she doesn’t want the public “to touch her big-screen TV”? I didn’t hear her comments on Katrina – what was it she said? The fact that she may be undereducated does not take away from the fact that the woman can sing, and I really think that’s all she wants to do is sing and entertain. Any comments or answers to my questions would be appreciate. Thanks.

    Check out this Parody of Celine Dions Music Video Prayer. I bet she would hate this way more.

    Look, writer (whose name I read is ‘Eric’), chillax mate. Just ’cause your jealous of her fame doesn’t mean you have the rights to call her a ‘bitch’. I’m a fan of hers and I think it’s cruel of you to comment about her like that. Give her a break, she couldn’t have a kid for about 10 years. Don’t you think 10 years of stressing over being infertile would make her a bit sour of parodies? Think before you write something, mate, ’cause the TRUE reasons of why she didn’t like the parody will kick you in the ass harder than Karma herself (’cause Karma is definitely a woman, only us women know how to balance a man’s life just by kicking him between the legs). So, please don’t go around calling famous celebrities ‘bitches’ and don’t go around saying ‘how they can’t take a joke’, ’cause by your whiny article, it makes me feel that you think of life as a total joke and not something that should be treasured.
