Celine Dion cancels concert over hurt feelings
Celine Dion cancelled a concert in Halifax because local radio and newspaper reports continually insulted her, the singer's husband and manager Rene Angelil said Tuesday.Can we get her to cry on Larry King again? Take a kayak!
"When an artist comes to a place to entertain, the artist hopes people are happy," Angelil said by phone. "I couldn't understand that negative reaction."
He quoted a letter sent to the Halifax-based Daily News by a fan, upset at the press coverage.
"'This past week, I listened as call after call came into the local radio station that we didn't want Celine Dion to come to Halifax. What the hell is wrong with Haligonians?,'" he quoted.
