Midler on Music In General

Midler on Music In General: “There’s nothing I really don’t like,” she said. “I see value in all kinds of popular music. That’s why it surprises me that people throw their music away. Here we are, Americans, and our pop music is a real treasure. Yet the record-buying public, as a whole, has cast the older music aside. And music has diminished. Modern pop has its moments. It’s not all great, but the swing stuff probably wasn’t all great, either. In hindsight, you tend to dig up the gems and focus on them.” (1991, Chicago Sun Times) – Bette Midler Read More

Do Gay Men Love, Dislike or Feel Indifferent About Taylor Swift?

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.

Bette Midler On Pop Music: “In the early days of rock and roll everybody was real.

Bette Midler On Pop Music: “In the early days of rock and roll everybody was real. But the bigger the business got, when the corporations swallowed up all the record companies, they all got scared. There’s no rough edges on pop music anymore…and there’s no soul.” (Boca Raton, March 13, 1983)

Bette Midler On Pop Music: “You know what makes me the craziest?

Bette Midler On Pop Music: “You know what makes me the craziest? It’s the homogenization in the record industry today. There are no surprises. They’re giving us a flat presentation and calling that entertainment.” (Boca Raton, March 13, 1983) – Bette Midler

Well, whatever strictures there were have fallen apart.

[on what she perceives as the ‘pornification’ of pop music] Well, whatever strictures there were have fallen apart. And now it’s whatever you feel like doing you can do. I mean, apparently people really like to pretend they’re having sex. They really like to slap each other’s butts. [My advice?] Trust your talent. You don’t have to make a whore of yourself to get ahead. You really don’t. – Bette Midler

BetteBack Review November 29, 1991: For The Boys – Washington Post

Washington Post
November 29, 1991

But these days, any movie that actually strives for something besides box-office bucks should be commended. At once sentimental and cynical, “For the Boys” has heart and guts, all the period polish $30 million can buy and a Movie Star-scale performance by Bette Midler, who has been trying to bring this moving story to the screen for years.
