Bette Midler on “Misery”

[Bette Midler on “Misery”] I turned that down because I didn’t want to saw off someone’s foot, even though the role won an Oscar [for Kathy Bates]. It was stupid to say no to those pictures. And while I was unsure about doing this play [on Broadway as Sue Mengers], I felt it was time for me to say yes. – Bette Midler

BetteBack September 1998 – Bathhouse Betty Review (Wikipedia)

Wikipedia
September 1998

51m-Akn2rcL._SS500_

The title of the album, Bathhouse Betty, refers to Midler‘s early career when she performed her cabaret shows at gay bathhouses like the Continental Baths in New York which led to her becoming a gay icon with a loyal LGBT following ever since. When Midler promoted the album she said in an interview “Despite the way things turned out [with the AIDS crisis], I’m still proud of those days [when I got my start singing at the gay bathhouses]. I feel like I was at the forefront of the gay liberation movement, and I hope I did my part to help it move forward. So, I kind of wear the label of ‘Bathhouse Betty’ with pride.”[1] Read More

Bette Midler On Why Bette Midler Started With The Adopt A Highway Program:

Bette Midler On Why Bette Midler Started With The Adopt A Highway Program: “I started with the Adopt A Highway program about seven years ago in California. Then, because my daughter went to school in Coldwater Canyon, which had become a big dumping ground, I began to work with Adopt-A-Canyon, a project that involved going in and hauling out trash. People who steal cars and run chop shops and contractors who do renovations are always looking for places to dump their stuff because they don’t want to pay fees to use dump yards. So, you find old refrigerators, cars, asbestos, all kinds of things on public land. God knows what it does to the animals.” (1996) Read More

BetteBack November 27, 1973: Bette Midler Gets A Standing Ovation

Philadelphia Inquirer
November 27, 1973

2016-09-05_2-10-06

The best assortment of garbage in town . . . make that garBAHGE . . . was assembled at the Academy of Music Sunday night for the first of three concerts by the Divine Miss M.

Maybe you haven’t heard about the Divine One, Bette Midler. By her own definition, she is Trash With Flash.

And she is a superstar, the first genuine superstar to emerge in a generally bland period of pop entertainment which has set in since the beginning of the 70s. Miss M has indeed come a long way since her local debut at the Bijou Cafe a year ago.
But rest assured, success has not spoiled this tacky, darling creature. She has taken the big time by storm with an outrageous showcase of American music spanning the last three or four decades. Strutting her stuff, shakin’ that thing. Just vamping and prancing. Read More

This week’s hero is a divine woman who stands with those making a statement about diversity, and the zero is a woman who continues the to make us all cringe.

HERO -BETTE MILDER

There is no doubt that the 2016 award season is one of the most racially charged award seasons in a long time. People are pissed that there was not an adequate representation of people of color in the nominee list. While it is perfectly understandable that black folks and other people of color are taking the Academy to task, some white actors and actresses feel a certain kind of way about the lack of diversity too.

Although the ultimate purpose of all fashion advertising is to sell clothes, brands use their seasonal campaigns to do more than purely push product. When done right, an ad can convey the essence of a label’s identity, from the type of consumer it’s courting to the general vibe each label is looking to project. Each element of the final image is chosen with the goal of creating a succinct visual representation of the brand’s message: Casting is only one part of the puzzle, but when used effectively, it can speak volumes—a lineup of youthful waifs conveys a different message than the use of a sole, seductive supermodel. But this season, several of fashion’s power players have eschewed models altogether in favor of celebrities with niche appeal. Read More

BetteBack July 15, 1993: Hocus Pocus Review – Spooky And Fun Movie

Anderson Herald Bulletin

Bette Midler, Kathy Najimy and Sarah Jessica Parker … definitely an unusual combination for lead roles in a film, but somehow this manages to work. At least, it works for a fun hour and a half of lightly spooky, Halloween tricks and treats.

The really strange thing about this film is why they chose to release a film so directly tied to the Halloween holiday in July rather than in October. It’s hard to second-guess the studio, but one would think it would have done better business if released during the Halloween season. Read More
