Rejoice! Bette Midler is back onstage in New York, opening this week in the title role of the Broadway revival of Hello, Dolly!

Depending on your personal tastes, you may know Midler best from her 14 studio albums, her countless tours, or her colorful movie roles, from 1979’s The Rose (for which she won the first of her three Golden Globes) to this year’s Freak Show. Midler first garnered recognition worldwide for her 1972 album The Divine Miss M, which won her a Grammy for Best New Artist, and she has had more soundtrack credits than acting roles over the years. But her star trajectory can be traced back to an early string of off-off-Broadway productions after she moved to New York from her native Hawaii in 1965. Just a year after performing in roles that were many miles from the Great White Way (figuratively, anyway), Midler landed the role of a lifetime as Tzeitel in the 1967 Broadway production of Fiddler on the Roof, and the rest is history.

New York (AFP) – Lesley Gore, who became a breakthrough teen star with her 1963 hit “It’s My Party” and emerged as an early feminist in pop music, has died at 68.

Her death was announced by her longtime partner, jewelry designer Lois Sasson, who said that Gore died from lung cancer at a New York City hospital.

Gore, born as Lesley Goldstein, was a middle-class teenager when, as legend has it, one of her recordings from a voice lesson in New York found its way to legendary producer Quincy Jones. Read More

Madonna has hit upon a novel way to connect with the potentially lucrative gay market, while continuing her more-is-more approach to social networking. Not content with flooding Twitter and Instagram with hashtag-riddled promos for her new album, she has announced a competition where five fans will win the chance to chat to her on Grindr, the dating app for gay people. This has to be the final frontier when it comes to pop stars embracing the pink pound short of, say, Kylie Minogue morphing into a human firework at Brighton Pride. Read More
