[Woody’s agent] Sam Cohn called me and said he thought Scenes From a Mall was the best thing he’d ever seen me do and he was sure it would be a big hit, and he sounded genuine. He had no reason to lie. He thought we were fabulous together. And I thought, “Golly, I hope I get to do it again.”‘ (1991, Movieline) – Bette Midler Read More

BetteBack July 20, 1974: What Does It Feel Like to Create Today’s Music?

Kenosha News

2016-08-27_3-59-30

“This isn’t what I want my career to be, but what the fates do to me and what and where my audiences carry me. It’s something that you can’t do by yourself. It has to be in concert-they love you and you love them back; it all comes from that.”

I don’t want to make a movie and I’m not interested in doing a play. I want to work out all the things I have to say within the framework of the music. My show is a show, not an act, and there’s a very subtle difference. An act is not as honest as I’m trying to be. Read More

Bette Midler To Johnny Carson About Only One Parent Coming To See Her Homecoming Show:

Bette Midler To Johnny Carson About Only One Parent Coming To See Her Homecoming Show: “NO, one parent was there. My mother came, but my father, oh, he just said, Oh, I just can’t.â€? He’s read some things about me, you know, and he’s very conservative. He likes Lawrence Welk. He doesn’t like too much cleavage. In fact, every time I went over there to dinner, he made me safety-pin my dress together O God, my mother got a charge, though. She kept screaming, Faaaabulous, faaaabulous . . . I used to have a lot of trouble when I was living there, you know. Cause I was a Jewish girl growing up in a Samoan neighborhood . . . I left . . . and, you know, the old story about I’ll show them . . I really felt that way and I had a lot of anger built up in me from those years…” (Newsweek, 1973) Read More

Nathan Lane felt instant chemistry with Bette Midler on the set of Isn’t She Great, which he shot this summer.

Midler plays Valley Of The Dolls author, Jaqueline Susann and Lane is cast as her husband, Irving Mansfield.

“You know what I call Bette?” Lane said, laughing. Feisty Spice. That’s my nickname for her. I think we were destined to work together.  We had so many laughs and she’s so funny. There were days she would kill me, she was so funny. We were like an old married couple. We were like the battling Bickersons the way we would carry on. She’s wonderful.” Read More

Bette Midler On Radio Demographics:

Bette Midler On Radio Demographics: “I think for the most part radio stinks. All this demographic stuff and all this marketing stuff where they will play only a certain kind of music and you can’t be older than 25 to get on the station is nuts. I think it makes for a very ignorant audience.” (Lakeland Ledger, Oct 4, 1998)
