BETTE MIDLER is up to her usual  temperamental” star routine. This time she refused to wear a certain wig for Cher‘s new TV show and kept the TV crew waiting more than an hour till she made up her mind to wear the wig and go on with the show. Even a beautiful wig couldn t hide that ugly temperament.

Bette Midler On Putting New Song Material In Shows:

Bette Midler On Putting New Song Material In Shows: “I’m nervous about putting new songs in, even though I have been working on them, I’m never even sure how much people know my old songs! I get a lot of new people because of my films — and I’m never sure how much of the material they know.” (Boston Globe, 1994)

Bette Midler On No Great Parts For Women Over 40: I don’t feel that way. I feel like I can go on forever.

Bette Midler On No Great Parts For Women Over 40: I don’t feel that way. I feel like I can go on forever. People always want to see a funny little old lady, don’t they? And if they don’t, I’ll make them.I still have the Sophie Tucker story to go yet. I don’t have that fear. I also know that that fear is something that they’re all going through. I wonder if they’re just catching it from each other, though. I mean, it’s obvious that Cher can go on forever too if she wants. Her career is longer than God so far. (1991) Read More

BetteBack November 19, 1973: Bette Midler: A Mellowed Outrage

The Boston Globe
November 19, 1973

One attends a Bette Midler concert partly to be seen.

So when this most overground of underground pop stars arrived in Boston for a sold-out two night stand on Wednesday, many in attendance were carefully eyeing each other.

As, such a setting for the happily tacky “Divine Miss M.” The glitter of the Music Hall is a perfect backdrop of tinsel for the frizzy-haired singer who works so hard at projecting the image of a silver-lame schlepper.

Ms. Midler is perfectly willing to let her audience in on the act, and they love her for it. The lobby was filled with fur, dyed hair, six-inch heels and flowers, not to mention an occasional painted face. Read More

BetteBack April 29, 1995: Bette Midler And Robin Williams Adopt Highways In New York

Bette Midler‘s and Robin Williams‘ latest credits appear along New York City highways. The two are shelling out between $500 and $700 per month to adopt two-mile stretches of highway and take care of litter and graffiti removal. Drivers on the Long Island Expressway and Bronx River Parkway pass billboards crediting Midler with keeping the roadside junk-free. Ditto with Williams on a piece of the Grand Central Parkway. But you won’t see either performer getting rid of the trash. The actual cleanup is done by the Adopt A Highway Maintenance Corp. Note: no potshots at the pope Read More

BetteBack September 10, 1993: Midler Is A Whirlwind, Dazzling And Divine, A Giddy Reminder Of What We Were Before We Became What We Are

The Boston Globe (Boston, MA)
Bette Midler: dazzling — and divine
September 10, 1993 | Patricia Smith, Globe Staff

ETD_Friends

It was probably too dangerous to shoot her from a cannon, drop her from the wayward space probe, or team her up with an arena’s worth of tap-dancing bovines. But it’s been 10 long years since Bette Midler has strutted her considerable stuff in concert, so an entrance, dahling, was inevitable. It was no surprise when the dipsy diva ascended from the heavens swathed in accordioned silver lame and whirling in a flimsy throne. Only Miz M could pop in from the cosmos, right into the waiting doo-wops of a bewitching trio of backup singers who somehow managed to be both underdressed and overdressed at the same time. The converted, the curious and the merely fanatic watched in awe as the svelte semi-goddess, purple pantsuited and silver pumped like a housewife on holiday, trilled in tribute to herself and worshipped gleefully at her own sequinned altar. “Bet you didn’t expect me to look quite this fab,” she cooed, flashing insanely white teeth and hefting her hooters for emphasis. She kicked off the proceedings with her ode to her, “I Look Good,” which indeed she did, flinging good-girl blonde ringlets and prancing the stage with sexy staccato steps like Betty Boop in a backbrace. At 47, Midler is a whirlwind, dazzling and divine, a giddy reminder of what we were before we became what we are. Read More

Henley plans to stage a benefit concert for Walden Woods. A target date of early September has been set, with no acts yet announced.

BetteBack March 2, 1987: Bette Midler Steals Hollywood

Time Magazine
Bette Midler Steals Hollywood
Richard Corliss March 2, 1987

10326583_868996393138576_1738823999_n

The lady knows how to make an entrance. On New Year’s Eve, 1972, she was borne onstage at Manhattan’s Lincoln Center in a sedan chair with the drapes closed, one leg peeking through to salute the audience; at midnight she returned in a diaper as Baby 1973. She has emerged from a giant mollusk in a Polynesian bikini; walked on in a cunning knee-length frankfurter costume, mustard streaked down her front; raced across the proscenium in a mermaid’s spangled fin and a motorized wheelchair; wowed crowds with her renowned mammary-balloon ballet. So what can she do for a 1987 encore? Strut into her hit movie, Outrageous Fortune, abuse a defenseless pay phone and insist, “Gimme back my bleepin’ quarta!” Hollywood may be far from Broadway, but for Bette Midler it’s just another opening, another show.
