Celine Slams Las Vegas Audiences

Superstar CELINE DION has hit out at audiences at her Las Vegas shows - insisting they are not 'real fans' and often fall asleep while she sings.

The Canadian is contracted to perform 200 shows a year at Sin City's Caesar's Palace, but she admits she is disillusioned by the experience of performing to jet-lagged gamblers.

She snipes, "When I started here, I told myself, 'I'm not gonna expect anything'. That only leaves you open to disappointment.

"People come here for four days, they eat too much, drink too many free drinks, they get sick from all that, they are jet-lagged sometimes so they just sit in the seat and sleep.

"As an entertainer, you have to be prepared for everything when it comes to the audience here. When you tour, people come there specifically that night to see you.

"They bought their tickets months and months ago. Here, they walk up to the box office an hour before the show. It's a very different kind of audience."
