YMMV: CÚline Dion
  • Awesome Music: For her English-speaking fans, arguably her power ballads in the early 90s. And when she sang those hits live... hoo boy.
    • "Loved Me Back to Life" could also count.
  • Butt Monkey
    • Like her contemporaries Michael Bolton and Barbra Streisand, Dion is frequently the target of jokes, both in Canada and the U.S., as an example of providing "terrible" music, due mostly for her propensity for ballads and the ubiquity of hits such as "My Heart Will Go On".
    • One example came in the Criminal Minds episode "Memoriam", where the team was investigating Reid's father. When they received his background check, JJ noted, "aside from purchasing Celine Dion tickets, (he's done) nothing questionable."
  • Dethroning Moment of Suck: Her cover of "You Shook Me All Night Long" by ACDC is widely regarded as the most un-metal thing ever.
  • Ear Worm: "My Heart Will Go On and On... and on and on and on and on and on and on and on....
    • Where does my heart beaaaat now...?
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: One year before CÚline gave birth to her first son, a magazine erroneously published a story that said she was pregnant with twins, which angered her. Then she eventually had her first son, ultimately debunking the false story. Fast forward a decade, she finally ended up with twin sons for real.
  • Snark Bait: Her songs tend to be this, but "My Heart Will Go On" takes the cake.
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks: There was once a song by Jean Jacques Goldman called Puisque tu pars, which is basically the tearjerking complaint of a parent who sees their child leave them to experience life in the outside world. Then CÚline decided to sing it in English, with lyrics that have nothing to do with the original's. You might know her version as the infamous Let's Talk About Love.
