With all these in my mind and after what Celine offered us the past years (SA, LMBTL, USF, concerts in Francophone countries and a revamped show in Vegas) I got the impression of a singer with positive and negative traits. What I never doubted is that she is still passionate about recording songs and singing live. In her current show and latest Francophone tour she gave us more live singing that she had given us since the days of TCOML tour. Of course my opinion is also built on the fact that she had been recording/releasing/promoting music as well as performing in a neck-cracking pace from 1981 to 2009. I try to never - never - forget that.
All this was to explain where I'm coming from and how my opinions are shaped. Pretty much the intro of my last comment.
I will not lie that I am not in shock over the comments I read here. Celine is making a business move, there is no denying that. But I fail to see how this affects her artistry, since she is still doing what she is supposed to do: she is giving concerts, she releasing new French music this year and she is working on a new English album too. Had she abandoned these and focused on releasing clothes, accessories and perfumes, then I would most certainly see her lack of interest. However, I try to keep it real and treat an announcement for what it is: AN ANNOUNCEMENT.
Few days ago, after a draining argument with Javito and after the inexplicable way mods responded to this (locking threads and preventing members from posting goes against the freedom of speech as long as the members' discussion/argument is related to the topic), I decided to take a break, possibly a permanent one. Reading the comments here today is the last proof that this forum is not for me anymore. There is way too much negativity, constant complains coming from people who obviously have many issues to deal with in their own lives. Because I see no other reason why someone would sign in here on a daily basis to complain. It is their right to believe what they believe and express themselves, I'm not arguing that, I'm not trying to change that, all I'm saying is that I've had enough.
Enough with the reductive remarks towards Celine, enough with taking things out of context to validate your personal taste, enough with people who consider complaining is a life standard.
Turns out the LuisMa way is the wise one...
