Celine Dion irks her neighbors by building a backyard swimming pool that matches her persona: Big, brash and somewhat ridiculous. Paging James Cameron ...
Does your modestly sized backyard swimming hole offend water-sensitive neighbors? Well, as always, a certain histrionic French Canadian chanteuse will not be outperformed.
Celine Dion and svengali/husband René Angélil are kicking the summer swimming season off in typically bombastic style with a new 500,000-gallon water park built in the backyard of their $20 million Jupiter Island, Fla., estate. The pool “system” includes two gigantic pools, water slides, and a "lazy river" that propels swimmers around the aquatic Arcadia.
No shocker here, but Dion’s neighbors are none too happy about her new addition. According to reports, filling the massive pool(s) caused an actual drought on tony Jupiter Island — also home to Tiger Woods as you may recall — leading to local water restrictions. After facing steep fines due to her water-hogging, the internationally celebrated caterwauler drilled six wells on her property. Yep, six wells for one Celine-sized backyard swimming pool. And let's not forget the energy needed to heat the pool and keep the pumps running ...
I have to admit that Celine's multimillion dollar take on the slip 'n' slide does look fun — if things ever get rough now that her Vegas run is over will she start charging admission? — but on the environmental egregiousness scale, it looks like Celine has scored another Platinum hit.
Not much worse than what Al Gore is living in. Plus you fill the water park once and filter and chlorinate the water. It''s not like she''s filling it everyday. That being said yeah tacky, tacky, tacky. Not setting a good example. but if I ever got an invite I''m there.
I want that house and pool soooo bad.
Repulsive, ugly woman with a tacky estate to match her tacky music.
You realize how this is likely to play out, don''t you? One of her precious miracle children will end up drowning, triggering her grief publicity tour to promote an album about her loss.
Tacky and extremely ugly, just like Celine!

Never heard of evaporation huh?
Whew. Those neighbors on JI all have pool poles stuck up their asses. Mention water sports and they go into an eco-tizzy.
i''m ready for the apocalypse

Heat the pool on Jupiter Island? It''s more likely that they''ll want to cool the warm water.
But I...am the greatest singer in the world!
Two quick pounds to my chest, Celine.

Yes, she remake "Tears in Heaven".
I''m so glad most French Canadians don''t have anywhere near as much money as her. It would be a lot more of this.
as much money as she
r12= Henry Higgins
just you wait...
omg at school i am doing a poster project on celine dion who the heke doesent love here
Can't stand her, especially when she was bragging about how she has 2,000 pairs of shoes.
She kills me. She is a national treasure. Just not Canada's.
She sings all those American patriotic songs swell. Fill up her pool for Christ sake.
We dutifully look after her castle, should she ever visit.
I thought everyone installed salt-water infinity pools now.
Deport the bitch
Send her back to Canada along with Justin Bieber. Then, shut down the border.
You know, it REALLY takes a lot to make other nouveau-riche Floridians think you're tacky.
[quote]Plus you fill the water park once and filter and chlorinate the water. It's not like she's filling it everyday.
True. And the pumps and filters needed to keep a half million gallons of water crystal clear are powered by rainbows and unicorn poop.
You cunts do realize you're foaming at the mouth over a 3 year-old story, right?
Plus, she gave a cool mil of her own dinero to Katrina relief right after that disaster.
Ah, yes we are proud of Celine when she sings at 9/11 relief concerts and gives generously to Hurricane relief. No one can sing "America the Beautiful" as patriotically inspiring as Ms. Dion. America has made her filthy rich and she sure does support the economy and the peoples.
We were surprised that she was unable to sing at the Vancouver Olympic ceremonies, in her home and native land. She seems to have forgotten the words to Oh Canada, and how to get here.
She is you know cuckoo crazy? None of that sociopath bullshit, just old fashioned nuts. I love her but she is insane. When Whitney Houston died, Celine said on CNN that this is the reason she never leaves her house because she was afraid of all the drugs!!
Celine, can talk about baby poop and the shoes all day long. Americans don't realize that she is more backwoods than Loretta Lynn, but no where near as smart. Ah, Celine. Come home to your castle once this summer and have the slaves carry you and Renee from room to room.
It is rumoured that Celine wants to purchase Downton Abbey for a tear-down. She likes the big lawn.
She's nothing but trash washed over the Canadian border.
Here's my question: WTF is the point of the one at the forefront?
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
The old site will remain around on http://legacy.datalounge.com while things settle down but will go away fairly soon as we consolidate everything to the one "official" site.
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
