Bette Midler On The Decadence Trend In The 70’s:

Bette Midler On The Decadence Trend In The 70’s: “Oh everyone is obsessed with decadence at the moment, because decadence is the big thing, right? In two years time it will have blown over completely, and we’ll go onto something else. I’m not worried about my relationship with decadence, simply because I transcend it. I’m at once part of it, and not a part of it. For instance, there are some performers who are right there at the centre of it. Oh, not Jagger – definitely not Jagger. He’s a rare bird – he transcends it just like me, though net necessarily in the same way. I don’t know if I have the capacity to have his sort of career. I’m not sure at this point whether I possess that stamina.” (New Musical Express 1973) Read More

Bette Midler On what she’s given up in marriage: “Well, I’ve given up a lot of independence. You know … I make decisions really– well, I can’t say I make them quickly, but I do make decisions.
