    Céline vs. Britney: A Side-by-Side Album Comparison

    By Mark Adams

    Spears’ "Glory" and Dion’s French-language record, "Encore Un Soir," drop August 26, and that coincidence deserves a comparison.

    R.I.P. Pawn Shop Live, Celine’s Hiatus, and Other Strip Odds and Ends

    By Steve Bornfeld

    Iron your leisure suit—the Australian Bee Gees show has been extended through 2018 at Excalibur. In conveying such news, one should never squander the chance to say that this tribute show is stayin’ alive. Or that it’s got a night fever that just won’t break. Or that I made a couple of jokes that got the whole world cryin’. … I’ll stop now.

    Celine Dion Cancels All Shows

    By Jason Scavone

    Celine Dion, who already had canceled all her shows since July 29 because of an inflammation in her throat, has now scuttled all shows through March 22, 2015–and her upcoming tour of Asia.

    Attention Nia Sanchez and Other Celebs: Seeking Fame Brings Scrutiny

    By Jason Scavone

    It kind of goes without saying, but being a celebrity, or achieving celebrity-like status, however fleeting, opens you up to a lot more scrutiny. Brilliant, right? It’s so stupidly obvious it’s basically dumb to even bring it up. Except. It might be obvious to all of the rest of us, but the exact people to whom it’s the least obvious are the ones who seem to seek the spotlight.

    Celine Feels Airport Guy’s Pain

    By Jason Scavone

    Oh sure. No one wanted to believe us when we tried warning everyone that the Canadian Mafia was a real thing. But here's incontrovertible proof.

    Advantages of a Holly-jolly Vegas

    By Steve Bornfeld

    Give the showgirl her shout-out. Look around: Holly Madison appears to be everywhere every hour of the day and night, seeming to singlehandedly carry Vegas goodwill on her surgically inflated, Lloyd’s-of-London-insured D cups. (We’ll skip jokes about her being the Breast of Las Vegas. … Oops.)

    Frozen nipples all in a day’s work for Ron Artest

    By Jason Scavone

    “Eccentric” and “crazy” don’t really do Ron Artest justice. “Artestian” is the only adjective that fits anymore. At his best, the L.A. Laker comes off like the Wu-Tang Clan’s Ol’ Dirty Bastard—a willful buffoon whose country-dumb act is an attention-grabbing smokescreen for cleverness. At his worst, he seems like a multiple-concussion victim raised on a steady diet of lead paint chips.

    The Power of Love

    By Cindi Reed

    The world of Celine Dion is divided into two opposing groups: those who love her, and those who love somebody who loves her. I fall into the second group: I love Las Vegas, and Las Vegas loves tourists who love Celine. If you reduce that equation to the lowest common denominator, it predicts that pretty much everybody will end up seeing Celine’s new show at Caesars Palace, whether they want to or not.

    To Document a Diva

    Editor’s note: In honor of Celine Dion’s announcement that she’ll return to Caesars Palace in March 2011, we asked our contributing critic for a non-local’s perspective on her new film, which is playing here in limited release. Presented as a “performance” rather than a documentary of her 2008-09 “Taking Chances” world tour, Celine: Through the Eyes of the World is an insult to your intelligence on many levels. Television writer/director-turned-glorified-editor Stéphane Laporte spastically splices together performances of the same song from various concerts in diverse global locations such as Cape Town and Dubai.
