Celine Dion cancels Vegas shows

Celine Dion, who returned to Las Vegas’ Caesars Palace a year ago for a three-year engagement, has been ordered by her doctor to rest her voice for six to eight weeks due to a virus that has caused an inflammation of her vocal cords. Officials had already cancelled shows through to March 3rd, but following the diagnosis from her doctor on Monday, more shows were cancelled. The Canadian chanteuse will resume performances June 9. Celine said in a statement: “I tried to sing at my sound check last week, and I had no control of my voice whatsoever. We thought that after a few days’ rest I would improve, but it wasn’t getting any better.” Celine returned to the Colosseum — which was built for her in 2003 at Caesars Palace — after performing a five-year run there. She then completed a world tour and gave birth to twin boys in 2010 before returning to Las Vegas, where tickets for the show sell for up to $250 each.

    If she’s busy putting on shows in Vegas who’s looking after her little kids? That hardly seems fair to them

    In observance of Lent and of Whitneys passing…Celine is taking on a 40 day drug cleanse. Nothing but pipes and pills to get her set straight again.

    Trevor, what is it about your obsession with crack pipes? How about making a comment with some form of substance for a change.

    When a woman is credited with single-handedly reviving a city’s economy I’d say not quite everyone is tired of her. I’m not a fan of her music and never have been but I do know you can be a good mother and still hold a job. She works a few hours a day, likely far less than the average working mother. Idoubt she even drinks nevermind does drugs of any kind. She takes care of her family and herself and she earns her money. Good for her!!

    She’s too high strung, arrogant and eccentric for me. I don’t like her personality one bit. Some of her music is nice. Love the way she sings O Holy Night. I wonder if that old man she’s married to still runs around on her. That old perv has been eyeballing her since she was 10 yrs old. He got her into singing and then when she hit it big he married her so the money wouldn’t get away on him. Maybe something like a pimp?

    I’m delighted to inform you that this silhouette (and actually, the polka dot pattern also) is back. It is a wonderful event, organized annually by the Aydin Dogan Foundation, a foundation that funds a lot of initiatives to help different parts of Turkish culture, mostly through education efforts.
