Is no one aware that the reason this is possible is because  ’culturally approved’ means ‘infinitely digestable’?

Also, is no one affected by the fact that Celine’s performance of this mimics Adele’s exactly, except for the Canadianized pronunciation of certain words? If one white bread pop star with a great voice can perfectly mimic another white bread pop star with a great voice’s white bread hit, exactly what is remarkable about that?
