Everything passes and everything changes

“Everything passes and everything changes. My thing is to encourage people to be interested in more than just what they hear on the radio. After all, the older you get, the less you want to have missed out on.” (1991, Chicago Sun Times) – Bette Midler

Midler on Radio’s Limited Sound:“But I have to say I’m not all that crazy about what’s going on in the pop world today.

Midler on Radio’s Limited Sound:“But I have to say I’m not all that crazy about what’s going on in the pop world today. I do try, and I’m very grateful for the ballads. People love to hear me sing them and I love to do them. But the radio only plays a certain sound and that’s too bad because my interest in music is so wide-ranging.” (1991, Chicago Sun Times) – Bette Midler

Midler on Music In General: “There’s nothing I really don’t like,” she said. “I see value in all kinds of popular music.

Midler on Music In General: “There’s nothing I really don’t like,” she said. “I see value in all kinds of popular music. That’s why it surprises me that people throw their music away. Here we are, Americans, and our pop music is a real treasure. Yet the record-buying public, as a whole, has cast the older music aside. And music has diminished. Modern pop has its moments. It’s not all great, but the swing stuff probably wasn’t all great, either. In hindsight, you tend to dig up the gems and focus on them.” (1991, Chicago Sun Times) – Bette Midler Read More

WELL, I may as well come out with this without mincing words; God knows there’s enough mincing associated with the subject as it is. The Bette Midler cult is going to have to camp along without me.

Big deal, of course. Because, right now, Bette Midler has enough fervent – no, rabidly rapturous – fans to fill the Auditorium twice, which is what happened Saturday night, and everybody seemed to get what they wanted.

Bette, that is. Camping it up ad infintium in the 40’s look: slacks and purple midriff tie shirt, an unappetizing mammary flopping out periodically. Bette, posturing and pouting and putting on and putting out the double and triple entendres about the gay, “quaint little crowd.” Bette, crooning in her sequined corset, singing ’40s fluff and ’60s Sangrilas, backed by a trollopy trio and, oh wow, this is Bette Midler so it must be divine and my dear, isn’t it just too, too trash-shy?
