“I became more sure of myself as a person when I took the anti-advertising stand and decided I wouldn’t let them tell me what personality to have. When I decided that I didn’t want to look the way they wanted me to look and decided that I would look exactly the opposite way and do it just the opposite of the way they were telling me to do it. That’s when I took control of my own destiny and that’s when the success started happening.”

Bette Midler‘s face breaks into an incandescent grin as she considers two titles she almost chose for her new album, “Bette of Roses.”

“I toyed with the idea of calling it either ‘Mother* or ‘Mom’ ” she says, cackling mischievously. “I have this thing where people unload to me and tell me their stories, and I give them advice. I’m not sure how many lives I’ve mined, but I can’t seem to stop myself. It’s a very motherly thing to do.” Read More

“It’s best not to be too pompous about yourself. It’s better not to need a limousine for your head. Although people think I’m just ‘divine,’ I have my share of worries. I worry about growing old and losing my shape, my looks, my hair. As an entertainer, that’s my stock and trade. Oh, and I also worry that I don’t dance as well as Michael Jackson.”
