Todrick Hall On People Who’ve Stood The Test Of Time

Out Smart Magazine
HOUSTON PRIDE HEADLINER TODRICK HALL: ‘BE YOURSELF AND BE TRUTHFUL’
Posted On 18 Jun 2018
By Gregg Shapiro

If you put out great work, people will listen to it. They will respond and purchase it. In this world, where everyone gets a trophy just for participating, you sometimes forget that real talent will shine through, and it will always win. People can come and go with their hits about big booties or popping bottles in the club. But the people who have truly stood the test of time are Bette Midler and Barbra Streisand and Celine Dion and Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston and Aretha Franklin. People who have an undeniable, God-given gift and a different perspective to show. Now that I know that, and have proven that to myself accidentally, while the cameras were watching me, I’m so charged up and ignited and ready to enter the next chapter of my life. I know that if I work hard and put out something great, that it can be successful, whereas before I didn’t necessarily believe that was the truth. Read More

Alice Cooper On Bette Midler 1973

Sounds Magazine
January 27, 1973
Author Unknown

Bette Midler, Alice Cooper, 2011, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

Bette and Alice in 2011

“I think there are going to be a lot of groups coming up now who are going to be doing like Hollywood publicity stunts. I like the idea of that because I think it brings a lot more theatre into the rock business and I think the next five years is going to be the time when stars will be born – personality stars.

“I mean, have you seen Bette Midler? She puts on such an incredible show; she`s as good as Barbra Streisand. I hope she doesn`t mind being compared to Barbra Streisand, but she really is that good on stage.

“And I think we`re going to see a lot more glamour in the rock business – real glamour like you used to get in Hollywood in the 30s when all the stars created their own, very individual images. It seems like the doldrums period we went through in the rock business for a while is over now.”

God, This Is So Frustating & I Can’t Understand In The Morning LOL – The Triple Crown of Acting. That’s when a performer manages the Emmy, Oscar, and Tony for acting. To date only 24* actors have accomplished this

The Film Experience
List-Mania: Glenda Jackson & Lots of Triple-Crown Acting Trivia
Tuesday, June 12, 20
By Nathaniel R.

Bette Midler, Barbra Hershey, Beaches, Lounges

Since I’m on record as being annoyed that all anyone cares about is the EGOT it’s time to celebrate our preferred obsession: The Triple Crown of Acting. That’s when a performer manages the Emmy, Oscar, and Tony for acting. To date only 24* actors have accomplished this, with Glenda Jackson being the most recent recipient as of this past Sunday night at the Tony Awards. Triple Crowns have become much more commonplace in the 21st century since actors move much more fluidly through the three mediums than they did in before the turn of the century. TV has totally lost its stigma for movie stars and Broadway is more welcome to very short runs freeing major stars up to continue with their movie and TV careers without as much scheduling trauma. A TRUCKLOAD OF TRIVIA AFTER THE JUMP… Read More

TOP 10: LOOKING FOR OSCAR GLORY AFTER 1991 (Bette Makes The List Twice)

Awards Circiut
TOP 10: LOOKING FOR OSCAR GLORY AFTER 1991
By Sam Coffey – Apr 4, 20180

ACCA 1991As voting continues in ACCA 1991, Awards Circuit celebrates the many great films of 1991, perhaps one of the most historic years in Oscar history.  A number of talented performers, directors, writers, and craftsmen were nominated (or won!) for their great achievements but have somehow not found their way back to the Dolby Theatre.  Mercifully, some actors who remained on this barren list for ages eventually found Oscar glory again, with Robert De Niro landing his first nomination since “Cape Fear” with “Silver Linings Playbook” and Laura Dern doing the same in 2014 with “Wild” following up her first nomination for “Rambling Rose.”  Unfortunately, too many winners and nominees from 1991 have passed away, failing to get back to Oscar since this year, including Jessica TandyJack Palance, cinematographer Adrian Biddle, and shockingly Jonathan Demme.

The Oscar for best original song is a garbage category – Bette Midler Proves It In One Segment

The Washington Post
The Oscar for best original song is a garbage category
By Dan Zak
March 2 at 1:42 PM

CLOCKWISE FROM TOP LEFT: Phil Collins grasps his Oscar in 2000; Robin Williams performs “Blame Canada” the same year; Mariah Carey, left, and Whitney Houston perform “When You Believe” in 1999; and, from left, Peter Allen, Christopher Cross, Burt Bacharach and Carole Bayer Sager claim their shared prize in 1982. (Hector Mata/AFP/Getty Images; Timothy A. Clary/AFP/Getty Images; Clary/AFP/Getty Images; ABC/Getty Images)

Remember when Ann Reinking lip-synced — and danced to — “Against All Odds,” the No. 1 hit by Phil Collins from the movie of the same name, at the Academy Awards in 1985? No?

It was nearly five minutes of theatrical fog, odd lunges and wide-eyed emoting, and Collins had to watch the slow-motion oddity from his seat. The academy wanted a “variety” of entertainers to perform the nominees for best original song, so it didn’t enlist the English rocker, then at the peak of his career.

Andrew Lloyd Webber Explains His Juiciest Memoir Stories: Bette Midler, Barbra Streisand, Patti Lupone, Princess Di

Billboard
Andrew Lloyd Webber Explains His Juiciest Memoir Stories, From Princess Diana’s Splits to Barbra Streisand Walking Out on ‘Cats’
3/2/2018 by Mickey Rapkin

Kirsten Ulve
Famed composer Andrew Lloyd Webber’s memoir, Unmasked, hits stores March 6, and it’s a doorstop at 528 pages. It’s also brutally honest, with the man who created Evita and Cats recounting his days at Oxford (he basically got kicked out) through to the opening night of The Phantom of the Opera. The 69-year-old explains some key takeaways from the tome.

Princess Diana Did The Splits Backstage At Cats

At a performance of Cats, Princess Diana and Prince Charles went backstage after the show to say hello to Lloyd Webber, and he ended up getting more than he expected. “I think Charles said, ‘I can’t believe how these dancers do these sorts of things,’ and [Diana] said, ‘Well, it goes this way…’ and she did the splits. A little bit of the royal personage, more than you normally would have seen, was revealed.” Read More
