It’s best not to be too pompous about yourself.

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. – Bette Midler

BetteBack February 21, 1975: Bette Midler Takes In “The Ritz”

The Ritz t shirt

Bette Midler saw the raunchy-hit “The Ritz” and howled at hilarious star Rita Moreno, who plays a lOth-rate homo-baths entertainer named Googie Gomez -a ripoff of La Midler. Who has created a big career for herself burlesqueing old time real talent…

Triple for Sally Field.” Read More
