What type of insulation to use in the attic when the ceiling is plaster on 1/2" plasterboard?

The ceiling in my home is 1/2" plasterboard nailed to 2x6 rafter on 16" centers with textured plaster finish the corners are coved. Will 16" to 20" of blowin cellulose be too heavy or should I use 6' fiberglass batting?
