Just came to my attention today, although it happened a couple of days ago.


Celine Dion brought back memories of the SARS days on the Gold Coast yesterday, appearing in a medical mask when leaving her luxury hotel with husband Rene Angelil and son Rene-Charles.

The French-Canadian warbler has angered fans by postponing her Brisbane concert, due to a throat infection and "irritated sinuses".

What is she so precious about?

Please. A bit over the top, don't you think?

What?

I always wear a medical mask when I go out in public with a sore throat. Doesn't everybody?

Seriously though, I think this takes the 'Diva act' to an all-time ridiculous level.

JJPerhaps. Though she does have a lot more money riding on the status of her throat than most of us.

I think she got some bad advice about the air quality on the Gold Coast. And some bad advice from her publicity people with regards to wearing that silly mask in public.

Wake up, man! She's not wearing the mask to keep your foul Australian air out! She's wearing it to protect others against infection, that's the kind of gal CÚline is.

Personally I wouldn't want her coughing and sneezing her germs all over me, tho' if it happened I'd probably sell them on eBay.

Maybe that's what she's doing, keeping the mask to sell on eBay. I heard she was a bit 'tight' with the money.

I don't think we're talking about the same CÚline Dion, she's a generous charity supporter (http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=celine+dion+charities). Can't someone just have a sore throat once in a while? Damn Australian germs, always looking for a brawl.

Always comes back to how much charity they do. When we all know celebrities get involved with charities to reduce their taxes. They make more money from giving to charities.

Makes you feel good to point the finger at someone else doesn't it? Nothing feels better than judging people you barely know and second guessing why they do what they do.

Sure. Prove me wrong. Do you think any celebrity who gives to charity doesn't write off those donations against their taxes?

I'm just being realistic here.

Besides, everyone knows that a week on the Gold Coast will cure anything!

And that negative rep point was uncalled for IMO. You know who you are (not James81). Am I not entitled to an opinion? Outa here.

Please let's not get personal, otherwise I'll move this thread to Politics & Current Events forum. If the unpleasantness continues there I'll make sure the thread never gets closed, ever. You have been warned.

I think the negative rep point was more than called for, JJ. And I didn't get any pleasure out of giving it either.

I just think it's unfair to burden us ordinary members with the responsibility of protecting Celia. I'm a long outstanding fan of hers. The so-called Mod in charge here should at least have given you a time-out. And you should have been man enough to stay here till you got it -get it?

Who cares if they write off for taxes? How much money have YOU donated to charity lately? And why WOULDN'T you write it off for taxes? Why give the government more money than you have to?

Then again you're probably just hamming this up for an April Fool's gag. lol

Really? Wearing a mask is a "diva" act? That's... interesting. People have the consideration to do it all over Asia to avoid spreading germs to others. Those darn Chinese divas.

And if your entire career depended on your throat, I'd say you'd protect it, too. It's a bit like a writer breaking his... brain.

Slow news day, I guess.

I'm just glad Celene is finally out of Vegas. Now she can spread herself about the globe like a fungus.

The Killers rock!

Forgive me, for I have gone down a path one should never take. I have learnt a valuable lesson.

Next year it's Orlando for sure.
