    Billboard declared Ariana Grande ‘the gay icon of her generation,’ and the internet’s divided.

    Whether you love her music or not, there’s no doubt Grande is a huge supporter of the LGBTI community.

    Her unconditional love for her gay brother matched with her continued fight for equality across the board is truly inspiring.

    But just because she’s straight, does that mean she’s disqualified as a gay icon? Read More

    hqdefault

    Calling Bette Midler a singer is like calling a hot fudge sundae food you’re right, but there is a lot more to it.

    Miss Midler’s dynamic delivery and one-of-a-kind style have made her The Divine Miss M  to thousands of devoted fans. Her records turn to gold, her concerts sell overnight.

    “I guess the extra ingredient is energy,” the flaming redhead explains in her distinctive New York twang.”I was hyperactive as a child, and I still can’t stay put.” Read More

    Q: What’s this about Bette Midler making her film debut as the Virgin Mary?

    A: lt’s a three-year old, jazzed-up home-movie spoof titled “The Divine Mr. J” that emerged from the can only when the Divine Miss M emerged from obscurity. “We turned down a Mike Nichols film, for Heaven’s sake,” says her manager. “Now this piece of (vulgarity deleted) comes out.”

    Bette Midler: Bette Midler (Atlantic)
    April 1974

    41uIWA1z-CL._SS500_

    ALL THIS diverse material – old Broadway show tunes, a Phil Spector classic, a Wardell Gray jazz novelty, soul songs, Dylan – you can almost hear those presenting Bette murmuring, “See how versatile she is?”

    The singer herself doesn’t project that sort of pretension, but her unfortunate misunderstanding of the material, her inability or unwillingness to distinguish between the real and the artificial, the astigmatism that has her seeing camp as humor and pathos as tragedy are all as insidious as the adulation of her adoring audience. Yes, she does lots of different types of songs. But she does nearly all of them wrong. Read More

    December 14, 1973

    41uIWA1z-CL._SS500_

    “Bette Midler” (Atlantic records). The Divine Miss M has come down to earth on this her second album. I found the first side mostly dull as she does slow versions of “Skylark,” “Drinking Again” and ” Surabaya Johnny.” The way she does Bob Dylan’s” I Shall Be Released” seemed in bad taste.

    With fairly good versions of”Lullaby of Broadway” and “Uptown/Da Doo Run Run,” side two is better, but still not equal to the quality of her first album, “The Divine Miss M.” Miss Midler tends to be a bit too theatrical at times and many of those unfortunate moments can be found in this album.

    With her moon and Venus both deposited in Scorpio, Midler is an intense entertainer, comfortable revealing emotion through her characters, while keeping her own sensibilities a private affair.

    Look for a major commitment by the Divine Miss M to an independent film and an Academy Award performance to boot,
