Looking Back

BetteApt.jpg

Look Back In the early days, Bette Midler was feathering her nest as the Divine Miss M.

Byline: Jeryl Brunner Publication: In Style Issue: August 2003 Vol. 10 No. 9 Publication Date: 08-01-2003 Page: 272 Section: Look Back

1972

“I’ve never really had a home,” Bette Midler confessed after she had moved into this Greenwich Village brownstone. Midler was newly flush after the success of her debut album, The Divine Miss M. But the singer, who went on to snag a Grammy for best new artist the following year, had already found a place to roost: at New York City’s all-male Continental Baths. Her flamboyant costumes–turbans, halter tops, and forties gowns found at thrift shops–lent her diva status among the towel- clad crowd, and her eclectic song repertoire, including the future hits “Do You Want to Dance?” and “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy,” earned her a cult following. “The essence of who I am was created in that hothouse environment,” she later said. “I was able to take chances on that stage that I could never have taken anywhere else.” Not even at home. –Jeryl Brunner Read More

Who Says We Can’t Make A Difference?

From today’s Pop Candy Column in USA Today==Look’s like some of Bootleg Betty readers made a difference and one gets quoted….way to go Albert!!!:-)

“Who’s missing from VH1’s list of the top 200 pop-culture icons?” Top vote getters were the divine Bette Midler and “anyone from Star Wars.”:

If Bette Midler is not an icon and a trailbazing original without compare, then why bother making a list?” —Albert Guerra, Miami, Fla.

Way to go ladies and germs!!!! Read More

Midler Matter Group: Too Much Trouble…

midlermatters.gif

That idea was worse than what i was doing already and seemed like I would be doubling my work.

I apologize to those who went to the trouble to join, but I really did appreciate it. The old system was working; I will just have to set my own limits as to when to answer e-mails and comments…please don’t take it personally…it may take a while to get back with you….

So now, everybody go back to whatever group you feel comfortable with and pray to God above I don’t have another brainstorm like that. If I do please stop me:-) Read More
