This article originally appeared in the June 1995 issue of OUT.

It’s the sort of daydream around which Jill Sobule might fashion one of her whimsical songs: she was hanging around her house in Los Angeles, in her pajamas, when a talent scout who had acquired her demo tape purely by accident called to invite her to perform at the Atlantic Records office the next day. Two days later, he called again—from an airplane— to tell Sobule she was as good as signed. All this as a result of “demos that my previous manager, who dropped me, said were ‘Terrible! You’re never gonna get anywhere!’” Read More

Bette Midler On The Seventies:

Bette Midler On The Seventies: “The Seventies is a time for re-evaluation. Everybody is coming out of the fabulous Sixties and they’re just exhausted. Most people are sad and they don’t know why.” (The National Observer, March 3, 1973)

Sitcomland is quickly becoming the high-rent district of Hollywood. Mary Tyler Moore and Sally Field already have gigs set for the upcoming year; now Bette Midler seems ready to jump into the fray.

Plans are coming together for the Divine Miss M‘s series, which would be produced by Bonnie and Terry Turner, the folks behind “3rd Rock From the Sun.”

No network has come forth to sign Midler’s project up, but CBS could have the inside track: Midler is producing a sitcom for them based on her backup group, The Harlettes Read More

Bette Midler On Her Try Outs For Fiddler:

Bette Midler On Her Try Outs For Fiddler: “First they said I was too Jewish, then they said I’m not Jewish enough. This went on for eight months, finally, I got the role. But the whole experience represented my introduction to the true Broadway system. From then on, it was a series of rude awakenings. What I had thought it was gonna be like – legitimate theater – turned out to be nothing of the sort. I mean, the superficiality, the trappings were the same, but the bone and marrow . . . it was cheap, dirty, full of politicking. At the end of my second year with the show, I knew I had to get out.” (Modern Hi-Fi & Stereo Guide, June 1973) Read More

Kathy Griffin Gives The “Legends Pass” Sometimes

Times Ledger
Look out Queens Kathy Griffin is coming
By Dennis Lynch

When I wondered about Griffin’s feelings about the very judgy treatment she got from a rather prudish Bette Midler during one of her TV shows, set in Vegas, she shrugged.

“That’s just because the legends are moody. They’re up! They’re down! They do it all! I just learned there’s a category of my friends –– Cher, Liza, Bette, Fonda –– the legends,” Griffin said. They get a legend pass, so when I’m lucky enough to be in their presence, that’s just the deal!” Read More

BetteBack April 25, 1995: Old message, new bottle

‘WAKE up, it’s a beautiful morning.” The happy message is sung in a sweet, a cappella Beach Boys harmony. Then, in kick the drums and brass.

Wake up, it’s a beautiful morning in 1966. But then again, it isn’t.

It’s 1995, a year in which the horrors just keep coming, from Tel Aviv to Tokyo to Oklahoma City. And, oddly enough, the Boo Radleys‘ wildly derivative and determinedly retro Wake Up (NMC) may turn out to be one of the year’s definitive albums, providing good times around the world. Read More
