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

Bette Midler On The Need For More Characters On Her TV Show:

Bette Midler On The Need For More Characters On Her TV Show: “We need more and funnier characters. I think I want more comic actors around me. I want a bigger ensemble. I want some help in the house. I need a housekeeper. What kind of a star am I? I have no housekeeper. I have no driver. I have no hairdresser. I have no makeup person. I have no (backup singers). I don’t have anybody. I have three people sitting around the table.” (Chicago Sun-Times. January 17, 2001)

Bette Midler On Working In A Collaborative TV Atmosphere:

Bette Midler On Working In A Collaborative TV Atmosphere: “I’ve learned to wait until the other actor’s lips stop moving. That’s the most important thing I’ve learned. I’ve (worked) solo for 30 years and people don’t talk back to me. So I talk and talk and talk. And now all of a sudden I’m in a situation where I’m talking and then I notice that they’re talking and I actually have to listen and wait till they’re done.” (Chicago Sun-Times. January 17, 2001

Bette Midler On Getting A New TV Husband:

Bette Midler On Getting A New TV Husband: “I’m very timid of getting involved with another actor who I’m not sure of, and I’m very timid about working with someone who’s maybe not so much of a comic but more of an actor, if you catch my drift. I want to make sure of what I’m doing this time. . . . The problem with this work is it’s all very collaborative.” (Chicago Sun-Times. January 17, 2001)

She joked half-seriously about having a series of guest stars as her spouse-“Fred Willard, Martin Short . . . Chris Rock”-but CBS honchos say there’s no way that will happen. (Chicago Sun-Times.
