Celine Dion not on Rolling Stone’s top 200 singers of all-time list. What were they thinking?!

Rolling Stone, the hard-left music magazine, refreshed its 200 Greatest Singers of All Time roster and five-time Grammy winning Canadian singer Celine Dion was nowhere to be found.

When compiling such lists there’s a need to draw eyeballs and inflame passions, and Rolling Stone seemed to anticipate as much in telling readers that it is the “Greatest Singers list, not the Greatest Voices List.”

“Talent is impressive; genius is transcendent. Sure, many of the people here were born with massive pipes, perfect pitch, and boundless range. Others have rougher, stranger, or more delicate instruments,” the magazine explained.

That certainly explains how Ozzy Osbourne, Kurt Cobain, and Axl Rose make the cut, but Celine Dion does not — hell, even Courtney Love made the list at #125.

Aretha Franklin tops the list, with the other Top 20 singers being in order Whitney Houston, Sam Cooke, Billie Holiday, Mariah Carey, Ray Charles, Stevie Wonder, Beyonce, Otis Redding, Al Green, Little Richard, John Lennon, Patsy Cline, Freddie Mercury, Bob Dylan, Prince, Elvis Presley, Celia Cruz, Frank Sinatra, and Marvin Gaye.

In addition to five Grammys, Dion has won six AMAs, seven Billboard Awards, 12 World Music Awards, and 20 JUNO Awards, according to the Daily Mail,

“She also holds a slew of global records that includes best-selling French-language albums in history; best-selling contemporary female artist; first and only female artist to have two of her albums sell over 30 million copies worldwide; World’s best-selling solo artist of the 90s; and second woman in history to sell 50 million albums in Europe, among many others,” the British newspaper reported.

As for Dion, she may have more pressing priorities at the moment.

In an emotional Instagram video, she announced in early December that she was diagnosed with a rare neurological condition known as stiff-person syndrome.

“I’ve been dealing with problems with my health for a long time, and it’s been really difficult for me to face these challenges and to talk about everything that I’ve been going through,” Dion, 54, told fans.

Then again, her fans will speak for her as seen here:
