YMMV / Céline Dion

  • Awesome Moment: Her French albums D'eux and S'il Suffisait D'aimer have yet to be dethroned as top-selling French albums of all times ever since the 90s. Doesn't sound awesome enough? How about that during their heydays, those two albums managed to chart in English-speaking countries, a rarity in the era?
  • 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.
    • If you think a Power Ballad singer can't rock, try her French song J'irai ou tu iras for some headbanging.
  • 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...?
  • Harsher in Hindsight: Her sadder songs now become this given that her husband has died. There's even one time when she sang All By Myself and nearly broke down in tears and almost couldn't finish the song. A similar case happened with her French song Et Je T'aime Encore (And I still love you), which contains lyrics such as Mais ou es-tu? Si loin sans même une adresse (But where are you? So far away without an address).
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: One year before Céline gave birth to her first son, a magazine published a, erroneous story that said she was pregnant with twins, prompting a lawsuit. Then she eventually had her first son, ultimately debunking the false story. Fast forward a decade, she ended up with twin sons for real.
  • Iron Woobie: Mere weeks after her husband's death, she resumed her concerts, trying to be as professional as she has always been even when trying to hold back tears sometimes.
  • Never Live It Down: Her doing a cover of AC/DC's "You Shook Me All Night Long" live made VH-1's list of "40 Least Metal Moments".
  • Snark Bait: Her songs tend to be this, but "My Heart Will Go On" takes the cake.
  • The Woobie: In January 2016, her husband of over 20 years died from cancer. Then, just a few days later, her older brother died from cancer. And the latter's death happened on the former's birthday. Poor woman.
