BetteBack December 23, 1973: Bette Midler makes for good all around listening

Hattiesburg American

Bette Midler‘s flexible and interestingly toned voice would alone have been sufficient to propel her to popularity, but the “divine Miss M” reaches the masses with another device — the use of tasteful music that has an appeal to all, regardless of which side the generation gap you may falL Her music is not new or in any way innovative.

Rather, it seeks to entertain with its own unique character, a slightly tongue-in-cheek aura of nostalgia for the glamour of the female singing stars of the 40’s and the 50’s. Read More

BetteBack October 29, 1998: Bette Midler – She’ll Make You Laugh. She’ll Make You Cry.

Altoona Mirror

PRG991208-PO

In her debut album with Warner Brothers Music Midler gives fans something new to listen to.

She’s all over the place on the 12 tracks – her trademark ballads, rhythm and blues, and even songs that evoke memories of her as The Divine Miss M in the 1970’s with I’m Beautiful.

Nobody can sing a ballad like Midler who shines on My One True Friend, the single from the movie, One True Thing. It comes 11th on the album but is worth the wait for those who haven’t tired of hearing it on the radio. Read More

Warner Bros Records released the soundtrack for Lifetime’s remake of Beaches today on iTunes in advance of the movie’s January 21 debut. Beaches features new takes on songs “Wind Beneath My Wings” and “The Glory of Love” as well as “I Can Hear the Music,” “I’ll Stand by You,” and “Last Time” recorded for the movie.

Making the announcement today at TCA, Lifetime programming chief Liz Gateley kicked off the Beaches Q&A reporting that 55% of the network’s scripted programming directors are female, Hollywood’s behind-the-camera diversity (or lack thereof) being a topic of much discussion these days. Read More

Bette Midler On Her Song Choices:

Bette Midler On Her Song Choices: “I never intended to concentrate on the oldies — in fact, I don’t. 1 sing contemporary numbers as well. But everyone has seized on the way I sing the oldies, so I guess that’s my strength.” (Lowell Sun August 10, 1973)

BetteBack December 21, 1996: There Are Singers. There Are Performers. Then There’s Bette Midler

There are those who sing and those who perform. And there are those, like Bette Midler, who do both so consummately, you’d be hard-pressed to force them into one category.

Midler has long been known for her voice and her acting (“The Rose,””Beaches”), but her rip-roaring romp of a concert at Denver’s McNichols Arena Thursday night reminded the audience of what made her a star in the first place. She puts on a stage show with the kind of gusto that only true entertainers can give. Read More

On The Word ‘Diva’

The Daily Beast
Why Jennifer Lopez Doesn’t Want to Be Called a ‘Diva’
By Tim Teeman
05.20.16

11352294_1498526640473499_1059149093_n

There is a gap between the admiration and celebration accorded to those we may call “divas,” and how those figures might feel about being called “divas.’”

It was once a badge of camp approbation (“She is such a diva”). But Jennifer Lopez—in a fascinating and revealing round-table interview of Hollywood actresses—makes clear the burden of being called a diva. Read More

On The State Of Culture In America:

On The State Of Culture In America: “I’m a true professional. All they (music fans) ever get is this year’s music. There are people who don’t know who Judy Garland is or Maria Callas or Stephen Foster, George Gershwin, or Billie Holiday. And there is nothing in government or the schools to require they know. This should be part of spiritual and cultural education. All that stuff is the root of culture. Basically, you have anarchy without it. That’s what we have in this country now.” (1994) Read More

Bette Midler Set To Debut At #5 On Billboard Charts (Her First #5 Since Beaches) Thanks Andy!

Billboard
Taylor Swift’s ‘1989’ May Sell 400,000 in Second Week
By Keith Caulfield | November 07, 2014 10:07 PM EST

 91hO-bGlyNL._SL1500_

She’ll likely beat the No. 2 album by more than 300,000.

Taylor Swift‘s monster 1989 album is so big, it seems that the music business decided to mostly avoid releasing any albums that would have to compete with its second week on sale. Why? Industry sources suggest 1989 may sell 400,000 copies in its sophomore frame (ending Nov. 9) — and easily give it a second week at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart. (That would also give the album the second-largest sales week of the year, behind only its own debut with 1.287 million, according to Nielsen SoundScan.) Read More
