BetteBack January 16, 1974: Expert Peruses Shoes For Fashion Views

Lebanon Daily News
January 16, 1974

2016-07-19_8-47-46

Kooky Bette Midler, the 5 Ft one rock-roll singer whose ’40s clothes are custom made by Bob DeMora, wears one of her six exaggerated high platform shoes bought “for practically nothing” from thrift shops. She wears the same shoes over and over again.

“That girl emulates the spirit of Mae West,” says Regensburg. She has a large bosom and accentuates her curves by wearing old clothes that whittle her waistline. And those shoes, which are really outrageous, have become part of her sex appeal.” Read More

BetteBack January 15, 1997: Bette Midler Makes Mr. Blackwell’s Best Dressed List

Daily Globe
January 15, 1997

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Cross-dressing basketball bad boy Dennis Rodman led Mr. Blackwell‘s 37th Annual Worst-Dressed Women List, a roll-call of fashion misfits that included Glenn Close, Helen Hunt and Goldie Hawn.

The acid-tongued Blackwell, who was designing dresses for the rich and famous when he originated the list in 1980, annually skewers celebrities in what he says is an effort to encourage fashion consciousness.

This year he included a man, Rodman, for what he said is the basketball star’s bad habit of dressing in drag. Read More

BetteBack September 29, 1973: Every Gay Blade’s Fantasy

San Francisco Chronicle
September 29, 1973

3midlersMsMag

Predictably enough, Bette Midler‘s return to the Berkeley Community Theater on Thursday night was a veritable concatenation of disorder.

Not riots, you understand. The Divine Miss M. would never STAND for unruly behavior amongst her slavering devotees. They are there to love her and pay court, to be sure, but hardly to attract a spotlight that is hers alone.

Still, the evening was not like any other, on stage or off. To begin with, the show started unpardonably late; 8:48 p.m. for an alleged 8 o’clock curtain. Out in the audience, one bushy-haired lad was howling “C’mon everybody, yell ‘We want Bette!’ C’mon! C’mon!!” No one yelled “We want Bette.” The bushy-haired lad looked around. “What is this …?” he cried. “Is everybody Jewish?” Read More

BetteBack August 27, 1973: Superstar Midler – Larger Than Life

Washington Star News
August 27, 1973

15067c4c564e9b264d1867ef44970c7b

Standing on the Merriweather Post Pavilion stage in rehearsal before her concert Saturday night, Bette Midler appeared to be a tiny figure. Only her bright red hair and the power of her singing would indicate that this person in the tight, low cut blouse, blue jeans and platform shoes was anything out of the ordinary. She looked tired.

“Shake your fannies, girls,” she ordered one of her backup trio, the Harlettes, who also were in blue jeans. And when the rehearsal and sound check were over, there was a little hassle with her musicians and road crew about when they were supposed to be back. Midler sounded like a New York yenta, nagging her people to do what she wanted. Read More

On What Bette Midler Would Like Out Of Stardom: “I would like to be loved the way Charlie Chaplin was loved.”

On What Bette Midler Would Like Out Of Stardom: “I would like to be loved the way Charlie Chaplin was loved.” She looks up at the tinfoil portrait of the Little Tramp over her mantel, “I guess that’s what makes you perform. It’s like that constant search for all that affection and attention that you never had when you were young.” (The Toronto Star, February 24, 1973)
