Celine Dion booed during Live 8

Superficial / July 5, 2005

Concert co-host Dan Aykroyd had to beg the crowd to stop booing her, taking to the stage and saying, “No, no, no. Be proud of Celine Dion. She’s here to help and entertain us. She’s working hard.”

I didn’t actually get to see this, but the idea of Dan Aykroyd begging people to stop booing Celine Dion is one of the greatest things I can imagine. Just thinking about it makes me pee my pants in delight. Actually I’m just peeing my pants, but I figure any excuse is a good one.
