I don't get why we don't hear her on the radio anymore. She's not that old, and she's genuinely talented.
Why did Celine Dion just disappear from the charts?

She hasn't released much in recent years. She does her Vegas show part of the year which gives her time to raise her kids. Her last English album was in 2007 but she's supposed to release a new one in October - maybe you'll hear her on the radio then.

Her type of music is not hip today. She's Adult Contemporary. She's also too old.

She lost her voice. Her Vegas shows are lip synched.

Her career peaked with the Titanic song, and tapered off rather quickly. Her last top 40 song was in 2002. Her albums still peak high but probably drop off the chart fast with no radio support. She had her run, and I won't miss her. Her voice was overrated, she often sounds terrible live, and being ugly and not too bright doesn't help either.

2. She is too old, there are thousands of younger and prettier singers in the market now.

Her time came and went. She sold over 100 million records in the 90s and made a fortune. She can still pull in the crowds in Vegas and make many more millions without killing herself on tour or worrying about her sales.
The recording industry is dead.

The type of music she makes will always be popular and not "hip" or reliant on trends so I don't see why she can't make another hit record and be on top of the charts again.

I don't think there is any (reasonable) doubt that Celine Dion is an enormously talented singer, and as good as any other diva of the past or present. Still, her style has ALWAYS skewed older. Even when she 19 she was not singing pop music, she was singing 'adult contemporary'.
She rakes in an enormous fortune and will continue to do so for as long as she wants. I'm sure she's not losing sleep over the fact that Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez are higher on this week's pop chart.

People got tired of her cacophonous shrieking while pounding her chest.

God, you people and your stupid theories. The real reason is that she chose to focus on creating and raising a family. After several years of failed attempts, she finally got pregnant with her first child via in-vitro and gave birth to him in early 2001. He's the reason why she chose not to tour anymore and instead settled in one place (Vegas) and a schedule that would allow her to be a full-time mom during the day. Then years later she had twins.
She quit at the top of her game. If I were her (she was only in her early thirties), I would've ridden the wave for as long as I could, but she made family/kids her priority. No doubt her star would've faded eventually as she got older and younger, fresher singers arrived on the scene, but her career didn't stop because of changing times/music. She chose to leave while she was still hot.

Because none of her songs had the phrase "lick ma boo-tay". Styles changed, and pop anthem divas like Whitney and Mariah tried to go all Mary J. Blige and it didn't quite work.

Hey, she makes audiences come to see HER, not the other way around. Just who is having the last laugh really? Like it or not, Celine created the template for the current wave of "Residencies" in Las Vegas. Now every tired singer is making lots of $$$ doing them.

No R31 it isn't because that would mean Celine would change genres and personas for each album and/or single. One day she'd be a belting French Canadienne, the next a rapping sista from Queens. Not even Vadge changes that much.
Celine's success depends on her delivering what fans expect.

No, R38. I don't "gotta love her." Unless by "love her," what you actually mean is "recognize her insipidness." I have to change to another station when she pops up on the radio. So not the "gotta love her" response you were expecting, I'll bet.

Celine stopped singing live about 10 years ago. Her shows are almost all lip-synced now. The last time I heard her sing live was on Oprah, where she sang a cover of Heart's "Alone" and her voice cracked on the high notes.
Barbra, Aretha, Shirley Bassey, Gladys, Diana, Patti sing every note LIVE.

She disappeared because many were questioning her lies of Rene being the father to little Rene. Nobody is spared on the internet and she's smart enough to realize this and quietly disappear. You can't spin your image anymore like you could years ago. Having a funny looking face and being speared by Kathy Griffen sure didn't help. She got tired of reading about her long face shape and creepy relationship with Rene who is not the father of her son. He also has a big gambling habit.

I saw her in Vegas about 6 months ago and the video screens only show her up close maybe 4 times the whole show. I assumed b/c she was lip-syncing. Although, I've been to Mariah concerts and the sync track is noticeably different than the live track, it was barely noticeable for Celine. I imagine she can still sing, but with 3 kids if she can get away without having to do it she will. Kind of surprising since she seems to love the act of singing.
