Bette Midler On Why She Took Off For A Year:

Bette Midler On Why She Took Off For A Year:”Everything happened so fast,” she said. “There was a lot of pushing and shoving, people grabbing at me, grabbing at the show I had worked two years with only two weeks off, appearing in a lot of strange places hotel lobbies, bus stops, shopping centers. Two years after I started I was playing The Palace and there was a lot of heavy breathing. I had no temper left and I was snapping at people, the way I always do when I am tired. So I just took off. I went to Paris.” (Charleston Gazette, January 16, 2016) Read More

At times, fashion can feel like the Gigi Hadid show. That is, when it’s not feeling like the Kendall Jenner show. Thanks to effervescent and relentless use of social media, these two young models have dominated 2016 – so much so that it’s easy to forget they have a combined age of only 42. Yes, Kendall and Gigi are half the age of the average customer who buys the products they are paid millions to endorse. Read More

Bette Midler On Her Paris Vacation:

Bette Midler On Her Paris Vacation: “It’s cutthroat there. If you don’t look just so, they don’t want you on their streets. One of the things I learned is, never go to France unescorted. And try to learn the language, at least the essentials. ‘How much?’ ‘Where’s the John?’ ‘Please don’t touch me.’” (Van Nuys Valley News, July 31, 1975)

BetteBack February 11, 1974: As the World Rocks . . .

Albuquerque Journal
As the World Rocks . . .
February 11, 1974

2016-08-15_3-19-26

Rock music is a uniquely American contribution to the world. Its roots can be traced all the way back to the Negro spiritual, sung by slaves in North America in the late 1700’s and early 1800’s. The spirituals evolved into the blues, from which came rock.

IT WAS A former country-western singer, Bill Haley, who unwittingly started rock’s wide popularity.

His hit, “Rock Around the Clock,” which was a watereddown imitation of the black rhythm and blues style, became a world-wide hit in 1955. Read More

Queen Of Twitter: We’re Taking Bette Midler’s Tweets About Kim Kardashian and Justin Bieber Way Too Seriously

We’re Taking Bette Midler’s Tweets About Kim Kardashian and Justin Bieber Way Too Seriously

Midler’s mastery of the platform comes with some bite, but that’s a good thing.

Maybe the reigning queen of Twitter isn’t some young thing with a reality-TV pedigree or a brand that’s reached the apex of hashtag mastery. Maybe the platform’s greatest artiste is one Bette Midler. The singer, actress, comedian, and wordsmith recently discussed her philosophy about the social platform with People. She said, “I look at it as entertainment. I don’t take it seriously. It’s easier to write a thought in 140 characters than it is to waffle on for acres and acres and acres of words. If it amuses a few people a couple times a day, great. They shouldn’t look for anything more than that.” Read More

What to Expect From the Hocus Pocus Musical Parody

The Unauthorized Musical Parody of Hocus Pocus will cast a spell on Los Angeles beginning tomorrow, but before it takes the stage at Rockwell, Marissa Jaret Winokur spills the beans on what to expect.

First and foremost, “it’s not for kids,” Winokur says, “and I have so many friends who are like, ‘Oh! I’m buying tickets for me and my kids!’ And I [say], ‘Well, you need to be inviting your friends and getting a babysitter’ because it’s [at] a nightclub… It’s a bar. We say, ’f*ck!’” Read More

“Why is it OK to tweet something about National Yoga Day but not about this?” prominent gay activist tells TheWrap

Some gay activists feel slighted by stars who offered their love and support on Twitter after mass killings in Sandy Hook, San Bernardino, Paris and Brussels — but not after the Orlando shooting.

“Silence speaks volumes,” gay advocate Danielle Moodie-Mills, who consulted for GLAAD, told TheWrap. “Why is it OK to tweet something about National Yoga Day but not about this?” Read More

Is 2016 the year of Laverne Cox?

Is 2016 the year of Laverne Cox? New series ensures her place in TV history
BY LARRY CARROLL AT 04:05 PM ON MAY 14, 2016

PicMonkey Collage

Suffice it to say that if Laverne Cox were going to make the rest of Hollywood a sandwich right now, she might want to call it peanut butter and jealousy. Because there are few actors who are hotter right now than the “Orange is the New Black” breakout — who made more news Saturday (May 14) with the revelation that she’ll soon become the first transgender actress to star in a network TV show. Sure, we know it’s only May — but it might just be time to declare 2016 The Year of Laverne Cox. Read More

BetteBack March 1, 1996: Don’t Mess With Bette! Queen Of Trash!

Bette Midler, in jeans and a brown jacket, spoons her black bean soup from a plastic cup and talks rapid-fire about the loves of her life – her daughter, her husband, and her campaign to clean up New York City. I’ve had more glamorous meals with her: She’s been a dinner guest at Gracie Mansion, the mayor’s residence in New York, where my husband and I entertain. Today, the self-described Queen of Trash is holding forth at The Cloisters, a reconstructed medieval monastery (now a museum) inside the 67-acre Fort Tryon Park in upper Manhattan. Her mission: to save this once-beautiful park and others like it from the ravages of illegal garbage dumping and environmental neglect. Read More
