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 January 28, 2000: DIVINE MISS M MERELY OK IN SHALLOW `ISN’T SHE GREAT’

Daily News (Los Angeles, CA)
January 28, 2000

7102

Truman Capote once famously said that Jacqueline Susann‘s best-selling trashy novel, “Valley of the Dolls,” was not writing, so much as it was typing. Deep down, Susann probably didn’t mind, since the mention by Capote confirmed her celebrity. And fame was Susann’s be-all, end-all, a heady rush better than any of the salacious sex that filled her three carnal-corn potboilers.

Undoubtedly, Susann would have been pleased that someone saw fit to make a movie of her life, even if it as shallow as “Isn’t She Great.” The intermittently funny film is a camp lover’s dream, full of fantastic Pucci outfits and the perverse spectacle of a paisley-clad John Cleese saying the grooviest things as Susann’s publisher.

Bette Midler On Trashiness In Show Biz:

Bette Midler On Trashiness In Show Biz: “Hey, wait a minute. I should talk, right? Who am I to throw stones.? I practically invented trashiness. You get to the point where you say, ‘The line has been definitely crossed now’. But I never meant to cross that line” (Toledo Blade, Oct 8, 1999)
