“Freak Show,” which could be the first queer-themed movie for young adults to be set in a time that feels like Trump’s America, fell into director Trudie Styler’s lap almost by accident.

Based on James St. James’s novel of the same name, “Freak Show” follows Billy Bloom (Alex Lawther), a quirky teen who describes himself as a “trans-visionary gender obliviator.” Family matters soon force Billy to transfer to a new, more conservative high school, where he’s relentlessly bullied and even attacked for his love of drag and dramatics. With the help of a friendly football jock (Ian Nelson), Billy decides to stand up to his tormenters by campaigning against a popular, Bible-thumping cheerleader (Abigail Breslin) for homecoming queen. (Catch a sneak peek at the movie, which is slated for a 2018 release, in the clip above.) Read More

BetteBack March 28, 1973: Bette Midler – Concert In Review

She calls herself “the last of the truly tacky women…”

Bette Midler may be “tacky” in appearance, but she has created a whale of a “tacky” following since she hit the big time, following her “tubs” days in Manhattan.

The Divine Miss M” played to a near capacity house in Oklahoma City’s Music Hall Sunday evening. Not even Carol Channing drew the thundering ovations given Miss M.

The audience (young and middle aged) gave the orange haired singer standing ovations (the spontaneous variety), during her numbers, at the end of the first portion of the show, and a 10-minute one at the conclusion. Read More

BetteBack April 29, 1972: Is the singer called Bette Midler for real?

Is the singer called Bette Midler for real? I mean, is she young or old, or what? — B.V.

She’s a “now” edition of one of the Andrews Sisters. Weird, but very talented.

Actor Sinbad, star of “First Kid,” on smoking: “I went to walk upstairs to go to the bathroom, and I almost fell over on my butt. I was so sick. I will never touch another cigar in my life.”

Punk-folk singer Ani DiFranco, on the seeds of her look: “I was about 17 and guys were coming to hear me play because I was cute. I thought: Maybe I don’t want to beattractive at all. Maybe I want to shave my head and put on heavy black boots and see who’ll listen to me then.”

Actor Brad Pitt, on growing up in Oklahoma and Missouri:
“When I was growing up, we had only the Top 40 country songs on the radio. They figured that’s all we’d listen to, but if we’d been offered something else, it would have been accepted. It’s a little likea closed society. You can only experience what’s available.” Read More
