When we heard that the tumblr blog Ridiculous Pictures of Celine Dion had been ordered to shut down by the singer's legal team, we thought that seemed a little...extreme.
Now when you visit Ridiculous Pictures of Céline Dion, there are no ridiculous pictures to be found. Only one post remains: an update letting the blog's followers know that the dream had died.
"Subject: Céline Dion vs. Yourself"
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.

thanks for following and being a céline superfan
i'll always remember u
i'll never let go
