I’m not a Celine Dion fan.
As a devoted punk/metal/hardcore/decent music fan, what she does simply falls at the exact opposite end of the spectrum of what I look for in music. To say it’s “not my thing” is putting it lightly (and diplomatically). To say that I wrote an essay in college detailing her evil ways would not be a lie.
Having said that, I must give major props to the reigning queen of music revenue. In the past decade, Ms. Dion is the top grossing artist, generating an astounding $747.9 million! Dion pulled in $522.2 million in concert-ticket sales and $225.7 million in album sales in the ten years spanning 2000 – 2009. YIKES.

P.S. – to my friends/clients at Celine Dion’s label Sony – uhhh… Celine Dion rules!!
