Celine Dion criticised for not giving credit

Jul 2 2013, 10:00am CDT | by

Canberra, July 2 (IANS) Australian singer Daniel Merriweather has criticised Celine Dion for not giving him credit for recording his song "Water and a Flame" in her new album.

Canberra, July 2 — Australian singer Daniel Merriweather has criticised Celine Dion for not giving him credit for recording his song "Water and a Flame" in her new album.

Dion unveiled her new track in April, but did not mention Merriweather in the credit list. The song in question is the Australian star's 2009 duet with singer Adele, reports dailystar.co.uk.

Merriweather posted a message on his Facebook page.

He wrote: "It is astounding that Celine Dion tries to pass off lyrics that I wrote as her own. Now, if I had written the song for her, it wouldn't bother me so much, but 'Water and a Flame' is a very personal song, that I wrote right after a break up I was going through and is one of my personal favourite songs on my album 'Love & War'. This song has every ounce of my heartache and pain in it and she pretends as if she wrote it herself."

"Don't get me wrong, I am genuinely flattered that anyone would want to cover one of my songs, but there is an age old etiquette amongst artists that one gives credit where credit is due."

"Thank you Celine Dion for singing my song, but if you had seen even half of what I have seen in my life time, you wouldn't be able to get out of bed in the morning let alone sing, so just be mindful of the fact that songs are a connection to the ether, and an insight to our inner most thoughts and feelings and for some of us it may be all we will ever have," he added.

Celine Dion's Response To The Guy Stuck In The Airport Is Even Better Than His Viral Video! Watch HERE!

When Richard Dunn was trapped in a Las Vegas airport all by himself overnight, he probably thought doing his own Celine Dion music video would be - like making love - just for fun. There's no WAY he thought the Canadian songstress would see it! Or that his delayed flight would lead to a free ticket of a different kind! But when Celine herself responded personally to the hilarious video, the offer she gave him should more than make up for a lost ...

Stranded Passenger Makes Epic Parody Video In Vegas Airport

Jun 11 2014 10:11am CDT | Source: WNKS-FM Kiss 95.1

Flight delays suck! They can really screw up your travel plans. But worse than a delay, a cancelled flight. I’ve only experience a cancellation once and I was close enough to my destination that a limo drove me 2 hours home. Some people aren’t so lucky. Some have to spend the night in the airport…an empty airport. How will you occupy all of this time? I guess you can try and find a comfy little spot to sleep. You c ...

A major uproar broke out this week after Interview Magazine published a picture of Kendall Jenner topless. But let's be honest: this reality star wasn't the first famous female to ditch her shirt for a national magazine spread... or the second... or the third... or the fourth... You get the idea.
