Jerry Lewis jokes with singer Celine Dion in 2006. (Ethan Miller/GETTY IMAGES)

hey y’all

céline dion found our blog, and she didn’t like it. we just got a letter from céline’s lawyers that the blog has to be shut down.

though this blog is well within the realm of ‘fair use’, i don’t have the money or time to get a lawyer to respond. the dream is over.

thanks for following and being a céline superfan

i’ll always remember u

i’ll never let go

That message, left by the popular Tumblr’s creator, Nick Angiolillo, is all that is left of the once glorious collection of silly pictures of the Canadian singer. Angiolillo isn’t bitter, though. “I don’t really blame Celine — I doubt she even knows any of this is happening,” he told the Canadian Press.

Near, far, wherever you are. I believe that “Ridiculous Pictures of Celine Dion” goes on . . . if only in our hearts. (And at least we still have “Star Jones in Hats.”)
