Do Gay Men Love, Dislike or Feel Indifferent About Taylor Swift?
Instinct Staff | November 12, 2017

Gay men have had their share of female icons in their lives over the course of the past fifty years. Names that come to mind include Barbra Streisand, Cher, Madonna, Bette Midler and more. For my generation, the debate for many years was who did we like more: Britney Spears or Christina Aguilera?

Although those are all still legendary names in the music business, the past couple of years has seen the rise of men in the industry dominating the charts after women like Beyonce, Lady Gaga and more were the ones at the top. Taylor Swift, however,has once again become the diva of the moment and catapulted herself back into the pop stratosphere due to the release of her album Reputation, which is already on track to selling well over a million copies in its first week of release.

The other night I caught Sandra Bernhard’s HBO special. Seven months pregnant, at the time of the taping, Bernhard wears a tight transparent dress. She’s ‘out there’ in every way!

This is one major talent. She can act, perform outrageously funny stand up, and sing. And I mean she can really sing. She reminds me of another dazzling triple threat gal, the early Bette Midler, before the Divine One calmed down.

But I sense that Sandra is going to be taking her career a lot more seriously now and doing some calming down herself a bit. Raising another human being is no joke. Her old friend, Madonna, could have told her that. But they’re still kind of on the outs. Read More

Bette Midler On Finding Her Musical Identity Through Ballads:

Bette Midler On Finding Her Musical Identity Through Ballads: “Well, it was a big shock. But it was also a great relief, in a way, because you look for a musical identity, and it was hard for me to find one that sustained. I mean, they always thought of me as a retro, Andrews Sister-type of personality, someone who could swing almost like a swing singer. Not a valid swing singer, like Ella Fitzgerald, but someone who was just an impersonator. It was thrilling, actually, to find that there was something I could do that people related to, and that was also considered musical. I like the idea of being able to move people. Sometimes I’m surprised at how big the ballads are.” (Chicago Sun Times, 1994) Read More

Bette Midler On Singing State Songs In Concert:

Bette Midler On Singing State Songs In Concert: “It gives me a laugh. I really do make an effort to find a Colorado song or a Carolina song, depending on where we are. The band and I always like to see what happens when you sing the state song of wherever you happen to be. Very funny things can happen, especially in the Midwest. It keeps us on our toes and gives the audience a giggle.” (Boston Globe, 1994)

Bette Midler: “Can you sing any song that won the Academy Award in the last few years?”

Bette Midler: “Can you sing any song that won the Academy Award in the last few years?” she demands, bending way forward in her chair. “You can’t, right? I mean, there are so many people doing so many things, I don’t think audiences really have a chance to get to know an artist. They come and go so quickly, don’t ya know. (1987)

Films Back In The 1980’s, Like Beaches, Were Made For Adults, Not Just Teenage Boys

Netflix
By Hadley Freeman

When do you think Hollywood will remake the 1986 movie Soul Man? I’m thinking Christmas would be a good time, because nothing says “warm, fuzzy, festive feeling” better than a movie in which the white lead blacks up because he’s pretending to be African-American in order to bagsie a scholarship to Harvard. OK, sure, it might seem a little perverse reviving a film whose attitude towards race was so bad that it sparked protests 30 years ago. But still: it was made in the 1980s, the decade the American movie industry is currently desperately, mindlessly cannibalising, so the kids are going to love it. Read More

Why Bette Midler Is Her “Fucking Hero” And 16 Other Things About Adele

Rolling Stone
17 Things You Learn Hanging Out With Adele
BY BRIAN HIATT November 30, 2015

When Adele sat for her Rolling Stone cover-story interviews in early October, the world had yet to hear 25. The album and its first single, “Hello,” were weeks away from breaking every available record, from video streams to first-week sales, but Adele wasn’t focused on those possibilities. “I don’t care if 10 people buy the album as long as those, like, 10 people believe me,” she said. “That’s the most important thing to me, is just being believed.” Here’s more from Adele on her life and music.
