New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom wasn’t big enough for dueling divas Bette Midler and Cher on Friday night.

The Divine Miss M dissed a tardy, lip synching Cher as “someone who used to be famous, ” according to witnesses at the Miracle On 34th Street concert.

The latest flare up between the two superstars was sparked by Cher, who, due to sing first, appeared a half hour late. Apparently she had been getting her face retooled by make up artist Kevin Acoin, but Midler’s camp suspected her dramatic entrance was deliberate. Read More

BetteBack September 24, 1998: Bathhouse Betty Review (Hartford Courant)

Hartfort Courant
September 24, 1998|By GREG MORAGO

When America sees Bette Midler perform, it’s usually in stage and TV spectaculars that capitalize on her big, bawdy, naughty audaciousness — or should we say bodaciousness. Flash, trash and slash (the claws always seem just a tad too eagerly positioned), the Divine Miss M often comes off as a jeweled confection, albeit Pop Rocks.

What gets lost in these Vegasy endeavors is Midler’s keen musicality — her deep appreciation of the lyric, her actorly sense of timing, her emotive ways with the ballad and the sublime tenderness she confers on the love song. Read More
