However, a video of the My Heart Will Go On singer roasting Rolling Stone and music critics over 20 years ago has resurfaced on social media after the list was announced.

Celine Dion Was Snubbed By Rolling Stone In Its List Of ‘200 Greatest Singers Of All Time’

Fans believe an old video trending now on social media has something to do with Rolling Stones’ decision not to consider Celine Dion for its list of ‘200 Greatest Singers Of All Time.’ The news publication released a listicle on January 1, 2023, featuring the greatest singers of all time. While the list ranged from Rosalía to Aretha Franklin, it did not include the 54-year-old singer.

An old video of Dion’s interview with ABC is currently trending on social media, revealing how the singer roasted Rolling Stone and music critics over 20 years ago. A user tweeted the video along with a message, which reads, “Celine Dion roasted Rolling Stone and music critics over 20 years ago. She spoke the truth and did not miss.”

In the video, Dion said,

“Many times, they sent people to criticize the show. People who like heavy rock, but then they send these poor guys to see a romantic show, to see people who are gonna sing a ballad.”

The singer added,

“Of course, I am not gonna like it.”

The journalist asked then,

“Does it hurt?”

Dion replied,

“I am one of the artists who sell most records, and we have sold out shows, so if they say to me this and that, it makes me mad in a way and angry that they think that all of those people who are buying my records and come and see my sold-out shows are stupid and all wrong. Well, you interview all of them. I mean… I can be wrong like this for the rest of my life, and I really like it.”

While Rosalía held the 200th spot, Misfits’ Glenn Danzig held the 199th position. Billie Eilish, Burna Boy, and Kelly Clarkson followed in the 198th, 197th, and 194th positions, respectively. Aside from being the best-selling Canadian recording artist, Dion is also the best-selling French-language artist, but fans got disappointed by this decision.
