Well, is she lying? It's the truth. Even Cher makes fun of herself about being old. And she also says she's an amazing performer, so it wasn't like she was putting her down:
[quote]She is very, very old, so the crowd is going to be old. (Gets up and walks away in mock shock). I’ve seen Cher perform and she is amazing. Hmm, the theatre itself is formal when you come in. It’s not like you can rouse the crowd with Do You Believe In Life After Love; it’s all gentle claps and hums. You really have to understand that it brings that mood.
There's a saying that applies: There's many a good tune played on an old fiddle.
Cher may be old, but Celine is ugly as sin! Did anyone else watch this horror film called Mama? I thought the title character looked like Celine's long lost sis!
Many years ago on Usenet, somebody posted in alt.showbiz.gossip that Celine likes to pick her nose and eat it.
[quote]so the crowd is going to be old.
Yes, as opposed the young teeny bopper crowd that goes to a Celine concert?
If there is anyone under 40 at a Celine concert it's because the parents couldn't find a baby sitter.
Interviewer: Miley Cyrus, Britney Spears and Sky Ferreira have all stripped for recent album covers and editorials. Were you ever tempted?
Celine: I’m too gorgeous for doing that.
Reading the article, I can't get over Dion's stanning for Adele. Just so boring and pathetic.
Try not to get too offended at her attempts to be humorous.
I thought the cunt was retiring after her Caesar's Palace gig to be with her darling Rene and their web toed mutant chillen.
R10 you mean pedo husband (remember he met her as a young child and "waited until she was 18").
A Celine-Adele duet would be the fucking most 1-note (neither has much range), boring, over-singing mess ever.
Dion has/had a very rangey voice. Are you talking about emotional range?
Celine Dion does always come across as so fucking boring in every single interview she gives.
Have you guys not seen that youtube comp of Dion acting "eccentric"? I've no doubt that could be tiresome to be around, but I wouldn't use the word boring.
The interviewer was the one who brought it up. Celine responded as a joke:
Interviewer: [bold]Cher mentioned recently on a talk show that the crowds in Vegas during her residency were “very, very old, often sedated and didn’t seem into the music.” Now that your residency is almost over, can you say how you honestly felt about it?[/bold]
Celine: [italic]She is very, very old, so the crowd is going to be old. (Gets up and walks away in mock shock). I’ve seen Cher perform and she is amazing. Hmm, the theatre itself is formal when you come in. It’s not like you can rouse the crowd with Do You Believe In Life After Love; it’s all gentle claps and hums. You really have to understand that it brings that mood.[/italic]
I believe she was trying to make a joke. Her attempts at humour are very very lame, either because she's just not an amusing person, or her grasp of the subtleties of english is weak. I don't believe she intended to diss Cher.
R15 the exact quote is
"She is very, very old, so the crowd is going to be old."
Celine wants everyone in racist Quebec to follow Catholicism.
Celine has not be relevant in years.
The cunt is right.
R19 Celine has hundreds of millions of dollars. But I'm sure she's crying because she's not as popular as Katy Perry or whatever other mouth breathing whore is number one this week.
Celine was just kidding, jeez!
R22 read R17
I think she was joking, and defending the old crowd that was labelled as "old" first, by Cher.
R24 she wasn't 'joking'
Celine is very friendly with Cher and has been for years. It was a joke.
I highly doubt Cher and Celine are friends. Celine strikes me as too concervative and Republican for Cher.
However, Cher did give an interview a few years ago that Celine's voice was the purest instrument in the biz.
Girls! Girls! You're both decrepit old hags.
R27 - Sonny was a conservative Republican.
lol. r28 sums it up nicely.
I got your back, Celine.
I've always loved Cher and hated Celine so fuck her. She's an over-singing, breastbone beating, horse-faced, married to her molester, shitty song choosing, anorexic freak.
OP, you pot stirring cunt. You should get a job writing headlines for the Daily Mail.
This interview finally made sense of the woman. She has a really goofy childish sense of humor.
You bitches talk about Celine not understanding thr subtleties of English, can you not recognize sarcasm when you read it? Just like stupid old fags to make something out of nothing.
I forgive Celine being the victim of child molestation and then marrying the molester can be traumatizing. Believe me I know.
Celine wasn't trying to make a joke. She thought Cher insulted her audiences(Vegas audiences) so she hit back at Cher.
This heffa has no respect for women older than herself. I'll never forget back at the VH1 1998 Divas Live show when she tried singing over me when I successfully sang over everyone else at the end of "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman". I eventually wore her down and put her in her place, but I shouldn't have had to do that-bitch shoulda known I was going to close the show.
I find Quebrcois people to be the stupidest of Canadians.
And Celine Dion is 45. Which is OLD for the business she's in. I look forward to watching her get older, her crowd along with her. I doubt she holds up as well as Cher, in audience numbers, either - of any age.
I thought CD's marriage was a mutual bearding situation snd that she was a lesbian.
she started dating/being molested by her husband when she was like 13

Relax, Celine was joking on Cher.
R34 those are Celine's own words. How is that misleading when that is what she said?
Read the interviewer's question, dumb-dumb at R46. Geez, people. Context is fundamental.
No matter R47
Celine said Cher was old. End of story.
At least Celine will go down in history as being one of the greatest voices of her time.
Cher will be remembered as a tabloid act. She won an Oscar, sure, but then again, so the Mo'nique.
Cher's a joke and her old, sad fanboys are even funnier.
Cher is only one award away from being EGOT
[quote]The exact quote is
[quote]"She is very, very old, so the crowd is going to be old."
Actually, it's "She eez vereh, vereh old, so ze crowd, eet eez going to be old too, eh?"
Celine only has herself to blame for calling Cher old. Those are her own words, she needs to own up to them.
She doesn't leave fingerprints any longer!
To me, Celine has been a mid-50s aging diva with a unearned superiority complex for the past 20 years.
I love it. There's constant shit-talk on this site about guys over 30 being too old. Yet our panties are in a twist about someone calling Cher "old"? What the hell would you be calling her if she posted here?
