Céline Dion fans riot outside Rolling Stone's office after shocking snub (VIDEOS)

Jan 7 2023, 5:47 pm

Céline Dion megafans drove all night to get to Rolling Stone’s headquarters in New York City to protest the publication’s ghastly snub of the Canadian chanteuse.

Dion was shockingly absent from the recently published Rolling Stone’sGreatest Singers” list, and fans were not having it. This year’s list has 200 entries, including singers from Billie Eilish to Michael Jackson, without so much as a nod towards the Canadian icon.

According to fan pages dedicated to Dion, several fans demonstrated the power of their love for Céline as they made their way to Rolling Stone’s head office to protest outside, demanding respect for Dion playfully.

Blasting music, grooving and laughing, the fans held protest signs with big smiles as they crowded around the entrance to the office building in Midtown Manhattan.

Entertainment news publication Variety reported that close to 15 fans travelled from Montreal to New York City to protest.

TV Line editor Andy Swift shared a video from inside the office showing the friendly riot just outside.

The protest comes just after Dion scrapped her world tour due to health concerns.

Last month, Dion revealed that she was battling a rare, incurable neurological disorder that inhibits normal muscle movement. Due to her diagnosis and treatment, the singer has not been able to catch up with all her concerts.

Dion’s daily life has been impacted by spasms caused by stiff person syndrome, causing difficulties when she walks and not allowing her to use her vocal cords to sing how she used to.

Do you think Céline deserves more respect?
