Bette Midler:

Bette Midler: “I went on Johnny Carson. He asked me what I was doing, and I said, I work in a bathhouse. I sing in a bathhouse. And I think people were stunned, and I think gay people were — they sat up and said, Oh, my God.”— (Midler talking about working in a gay bathhouse early in her career to Larry King CNN November 26, 2003)
