Celine Dion fans protested against Rolling Stone for not including the beloved singer on its list of the "200 Greatest Singers of All Time."
Last Friday, a couple dozen of her fans from Montreal, known as The Red Heads, picketed outside the magazine's New York City headquarters. They held signs that read "The Power of Celine," "How Can You Forget Celine?" "Celine is #1," "We Want a Recount" and "Rolling Stone you’ve hit an iceberg" (a reference to her song "My Heart Will Go On" from Titanic).
The fans chanted "Justice for Celine" while her song "That's the Way It Is" played on a portable speaker.
Red Heads president Line Basbous told Variety, "The list is completely illegitimate. We wanted to support her and make sure that Rolling Stone hears the voice of the fans. The list is ridiculous."
One of the protestors was French Canadian broadcaster Julie Snyder who said, "She’s won Oscar, Grammy, American Music Awards. You forgot her! You’re stoned guys!”
Rolling Stone did cover the protest, calling it an "organized stunt."
