      But then you look at sales and it just doesn't add up like that as she's selling more albums now than any female act that emerged during the 80s or 90s - for e.g. if you combine what Madonna and Mariah sold with their last studio album in the UK and multiply it by a factor of 3 - you're still short of what Céline sold with her last album. You can then apply that same logic to France, Belgium, Switzerland, Canada and probably the Netherlands [though to a lesser extent]. Where Madonna makes up ground and can fall back on is markets like Italy, Germany, Spain - Madonna is just huge in these markets. And neither Madonna or Céline need the US to sell a million albums [well maybe Madonna does - we'll see with her next album]. Céline has just gone multiplatinum in Canada, Diamond in France, platinum in Belgium & Switzerland [probably due multiplatinum in the former] - basically, a million copies of her French album sold.

      Whereas Mariah doesn't have anything like that level of appeal, outside of Christmas. And poor Whitney just never really fully made a comeback before her tragic death.

      I think music has been very kind to Celine in terms of how she's viewed - she's a legend, she's an icon and she's one of the greatest of all-time.
      Thats why I say she's a special or peculiar case, she always sells these huge records but she's like virtually non-existent out there (outside the people that like her). Everyone knows "My heart will go on" of course and I did know more than that about her, but its like if you don't read it you would never imagined she's had that much commercial success. If you go to street and you say she's had more success than Mariah or Beyonce many would be shocked.

      There are cases like tho, for example Enya is quite like that as well, the woman's sales are on par with Britney Spears', yet most people don't even know who she is.

      Of course Celine is miles bigger and known that Enya, but she's like that kind of woman with huge success that nobody see, especially after 1999.

Guess he couldn't deal with the humiliation so he deleted my comment and blocked me
            What a stupid reason to block someone. As if you insulted him.

            • Celine is also a very likeable woman and appeals to fanbases of almost every diva out there. Madonna fans love her, Mariah fans love her, Janet fans love her. That's probably one of the reasons she is really successful.

                  • but I get what you're saying.

                    But since "everybody loves her" that's already one argument for me to not like someone lol Celine really is a lovely person. But personality wise and especially musically not my thing at all.

                      I don't think "everybody loves her" - I just think people respect her for the fact that she doesn't have scandal and just gets on with her life, even when that life is completely shite towards her, as it was in 2016. She's a consummate professional in all that she does and is very clearly a great person - and I think people identify with that, she is as you see her. Some probably don't like that and I sometimes wish she was more aware of who she was. Especially when she does shows like Jimmy Fallon. But she is who she is.

                      I think Mariah fans like her, and I hope Janet fans respect her - if you don't, then it's no bother.

                      • Well in my personal case, I think Celine's long career is indeed admiring, but I've never cared about her, anything that she's done has ever draw my interest, nothing that I've seen from her on TV shows has ever caught my attention, she definately has a great voice but she's never wowed me (in fact, I think she's more of a turn-off for me, she seems quite cheesy to me and does weird gestures on stage), Her music bores me (I really like her "A new day has come" single tho). I think I could never be a fan of her. So I don't know why Spiritboy said everyone and every fanbase loved her.

                        I think she's an amazing person tho, she seems very humble and relatable, and down to earth. But that doesn't mean I will buy her music or anything.
