Rant Of The Day THIS RANT 11/02/98

Rant Of The Day is where I get to mouth off about whatever I feel like for however long I like. Theoretically, I'll update my whinge/opinion piece every weekday; in practice, maybe not so often.

The Celine slag-off continues

When I wrote my recent rant about how crap Celine Dion is, I anticipated I'd probably get a few follow up emails. What I didn't anticipate was that one of them would be from the immortal Frank.

Frank is an old sparring partner of mine, having spent several fruitless months last year trying to convince me that pageants were the kind of healthy activity that every girl should be involved in. (Click here for an example of his approach.) Given that pro-pageant point of view, it's no surprise that he's also a Celine fan. This is what he wrote:

You are just plain wrong about Celine Dion. She has perhaps one of the finest voices we have every heard in popular music. I have seen her on a few talk shows and she is very down to earth. Her talent is appreicated by millions. One thing you can be sure about, she could care less about your opinion.

This leads me inevitably to ask several questions:

But lest Frank think I am alone in my crusade, let me also reproduce an email I received from a fellow Celine-baiter:

I have a problem as my sister LIKES Celine Dion. She also likes Barbara Streisand and loves the duet. We never did get along . . .

Gusworld would welcome suggestions on how to deal with this painful and tragic set of circumstances.
