Celine Dion ‘unfazed’ by Taylor Swift ‘blanking’ her at the Grammys

An insider close to Celine Dion has spoken out

Singer Celine Dion is allegedly 'unfazed' by the viral Taylor Swift 'snub' moment at the Grammys.

The 2024 Grammys were big for pop sensation Taylor Swift as the star was able to add two more Grammys to her collection.

Many of her fans were elated and praised the star for having Best Pop Vocal Album and Album of the Year awards under her belt now.

However, there was moment before Swift received her latest accolade that rubbed people the wrong way. Even some Swifties couldn’t help but call Swift out.

Take a look:

As a five-time Grammy winner herself, Dion presented the Album of the Year award to the star on stage, but Swift appeared to completely ignore her.

Barely even looking in her direction, Swift took the award out of her hands and continued to celebrate.

Though Swift didn't directly interact with Dion on stage, an image of the pair hugging behind the scenes soon emerged online, showing them seemingly getting along great as they both grinned for the camera.

Social media users didn’t let their love of Swift stop them from criticizing the on stage incident, however.

“Taylor Swift will never EVER live down ignoring Celine Dion at the Grammys,” one user wrote.

“As someone who has defended Taylor, I can’t defend this. No acknowledgement of Celine whatsoever,” another chimed in.

“I’m sure it’s a BIG moment…overwhelming even…but for Taylor Swift to blank Celine Dion & not even acknowledge her when she’s handing you the award was RUDE," added another.

The appearance at the show was a big deal for Dion, who has been living with a diagnosis of stiff-person syndrome, a very rare incurable neurological disorder.

Despite this, an insider spoke to Page Six and said the star would have appreciated if Swift had behaved more like Adele, who praised Dion after she handed her the Grammy for Song of the Year in 2017.

“I don’t think Céline cared and they talked backstage afterwards. But Céline was just gracious and happy to be there,” the insider claimed.

“Of course, the right thing would have been for Taylor to acknowledge her, like Adele did years ago."

“She wanted to show everyone that she’s doing alright,” the insider added of Dion’s surprise appearance. “She has good days and bad days … it’s a painful disease, but it’s not a death sentence.

“She’s clearly capable of doing things and she wanted to show everyone that she’s back. She looked fantastic. The hope is that she will be able to perform.”
