Goat? Céline's a horse, Shakira is the goat..menime123 wrote:Why is Celine a goat though?
She does have the greatest career tbh. So not surprised they’re using it as a point of study.
More here (in french) http://www.lapresse.ca/arts/musique/201 ... e-dion.phpProfessor in the Department of Communication at the University of Montreal, Line Grenier is the first academic to study the Celine Dion phenomenon as part of her research on fame, and then on aging in popular music.
She discussed the results of her research with La Presse.
"Gradually, critics, even the most virulent, have recognized the length of her career, which is very important, especially in pop. It has also been difficult not to salute her work ethic. The first making-of documentaries appeared and, in the case of Céline, we could measure the degree of success of the Quebec team", says Line Grenier listing the elements that have allowed Céline to rise to the rank of "national hero".
"A magazine like L'actualité that places her in the rank of national hero like Maurice Richard, it does not evacuate all critical discourse that has been worn in the past, but it says it can be seen from another angle."
"She did not leave anyone indifferent. We hated her or loved her, including people who were not interested in her music. This is where the phenomenon took its full extent and put forward a mode of celebrity that was not strictly related to the fact of pop" says the professor.

That’s mimed - she makes a few mistakes in the last minute. But ever since seeing her live this has become one of my all time fav Celine songs.Wayne wrote:
My GOD - she was untouchable as far as vocals go.
Simply, one of the most amazing live vocals you will ever hear - she outdoes even the studio version, which is just ridiculous in itself.
I agree this is live. I’m still convinced the other one - where she’s dressed like she’s popping down Tesco or something - is mimed. Mimed to a pre-recording, but mimed nonetheless.Wayne wrote:That isn't mimed - that's just the VCR/quality.
It's all live.
Another PERFECT performance of The Reason, in its original key (along with BLYM):
Perfection. FIY and LTAL are my favourite Celine eras. They are her equivalent to Music Box/Daydream or Whitney Debut-Bodyguard eras, when she could do anything. The Reason is one of her hardest songs to sing, as after a gruelling belting final chorus, she has to end with an explosive G5 belt. I am always amazed at how she can effortlessly remember to sing the reduced/edited version of this song - it is edited so weirdly that the natural build-up of the song verse and middle 8 is destroyed and I would always be afraid of forgetting which parts were cut and end up singing the wrong lyric....Wayne wrote:
