On Singing: “It’s much harder than acting. Recording is just torture.

On Singing: “It’s much harder than acting. Recording is just torture. You obsess over every note and every track and every instrument and it’s like being in a dark – this is why I would never be a director – you are in a dark room for months on end and all you have is takeout food. I just couldn’t stand the process of making records, and I think it showed that I was in despair.” (The Washington Post, 1991) – Bette Midler

Hocus Pocus One Of The Fastest Selling Costumes Of The Year

Reading Eagle
Here’s a look at hot Halloween costumes
By Courtney H. Diener-Stokes

Every year at Halloween, hit movies and attention-getting newsmakers take center stage.

Whether your child is trick-or-treating or you have a party to attend, you will likely invest some time and money into thinking about and then hunting down the perfect costume.According to Tomasina Ruth, the store manager at Spirit Halloween in Wyomissing, the hottest seller for children this year is centered on the two female leads, Mal and Uma, of a recently released movie sequel

” ‘Descendants 2‘ is a new Disney movie, and we are selling out of it as soon as we get it in,” Ruth said. “It’s insane how fast it’s going out of the store. It is selling in our online store, and we can’t keep it in stock. We just got stuff in and it’s already going out.

“Ruth’s daughter has already secured her “Descendants” costume.”My 7-year-old is obsessed,” Ruth said. “I had to get it for her this year.”She said “Paw Patrol” costumes, based on the furry cast of the popular animated series, is another favorite for children.

Ruth said children also are gravitating toward scary costumes.”For some reason kids aren’t afraid of horror stuff anymore,” Ruth said. “They are wearing Chucky, Michael Myers, Freddie (Krueger), and they like the scary clowns and jesters.”

A villain in Batman Universe is another favorite.”Harley Quinn is really popular,” Ruth said.

As for adults, Ruth is seeing that they would rather focus on movies than politics.

“We do have some Trump costumes, and they are selling OK, but not as much as last year,” she said.

Instead, costumes from movies like “Hocus Pocus,” which starred Sarah Jessica Parker and Bette Midler, are in demand, despite its release dating back to 1993.

“Disney finally licensed it for costumes and product, and as soon as we get them in they go out,” Ruth said.

“We have all the characters.”Ruth said

“Rick and Morty” costumes based on the adult animated science-fiction sitcom also is a focus for adults this Halloween.Adults also are drawn to horror costumes.

“Wonder Woman seems to be doing very well,” she said.

“Steampunk also seems to be pretty popular this year.

“Ruth said she is planning to wear a pirate costume to Halloween parties, but has something else in mind for work.

“I’m going as Sarah Sanderson from ‘Hocus Pocus,’ ” Ruth said. “I have loved ‘Hocus Pocus’ for 20 years, and it is the first time we can actually wear it. Sarah Sanderson is my favorite character in the movie.

“Dressing the part of your favorite movie or horror character, regardless of age, doesn’t come cheap. Buying the costume is one thing, but if you want to be property outfitted, that means purchasing additional accessories.

“Customers spend $60 to $100 per costume and accessories,” Ruth said. “We have been selling nonstop since we opened.”

Pink Talks About Fighting Cristina Aguilera And Defending Bette Midler

People
Pink Reveals Christina Aguilera Tried to Punch Her: ‘She Swung at Me in a Club’
BY ALEXIA FERNANDEZ
OCTOBER 20, 2017

Pink is not shy to admit that she and fellow singer Christina Aguilera have had their problems — so much so that they almost came to blows.

The pop star, 38, told Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live that while the two have made amends since their feud in the early 2000s, their relationship was very rocky.

“We were super young and super new at the whole thing, and I think I’m an alpha, and she’s an alpha,” Pink said of their feud during the “Plead the Fifth” segment.

She continued, “I’m used to taking my altercations physical and she’s used to having them verbal. We’re just very different, we’re very different. And we were very young and new.”

“You have to learn — women have to learn how to support each other,” she added. “It’s not taught to each other in the playground.”

When Cohen asked if Pink had attempted to make an argument into a physical fight, the pop star revealed, “Actually, she swung at me in a club. Hilarious!”

“I was like, ‘What’s happening right now? What’s happening?’” she said.

The two signers allegedly clashed when they recorded the track “Lady Marmalade” — reportedly over who would sing the highest notes in the song.

Although they didn’t get along in their youth, Pink insisted she and Aguilera are now fine.

“She’s so talented and deep down I’ve had bad days, too,” she said. “She’s a really sweet person. We made up on The Voice. I mean, it was funny, I laughed. I hadn’t seen her in years and years and years.”

As for how they managed to get over their differences, the “What About Us” singer simply said, “We became moms. We grew up. We hugged it out. It’s that simple. I feel so good about that.”

While she may have made up with Aguilera, the singer is not backing down from comments made against Kim Kardashian West when the reality star posed a nude bathroom selfie last year.

Pink shared a message on Twitter that seemingly took aim at Kardashian West for using her sexuality to get attention instead of her “brains,” “strength,” or “work ethic.”

She told Cohen on Thursday night that she didn’t regret throwing shade at the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star.

“Honestly, she went in on Bette Midler,” Pink said, referring to Kardashians tweet slamming Midler for the Tony Award winner’s criticism over her NSFW selfie.

“If you go in on Bette Midler, you’re probably gonna hear from me,” the pop star added. “You just don’t talk to Bette Midler… about anything.”
