All we can conscientiously say about Bette Midler is you can have her, but her ten-week Broadway vulgarity grossed 51,700.00 to become the Main Stem’s all time box office champ.

BetteBack June 13, 1975: The Divine Miss “M” scores personal success on Broadway

Mister D: It’s so funny to read these old articles to be reminded of how edgy and out there Miss M was. It seemed like everybody was afraid of her, I remember Linda Ronstadt saying Bette opened the door for women singers to be looser on stage and Ms Ronstadt also claimed that Bette showed you don’t have to stand still at the microphone to sing, Bette was all over the place.

Bette Midler. "It was a remarkable adventure to return to Hawaii," Bette Midler said on the Tonight Show. The Johnny Carson program featuring Miss Midler performing a medley of songs from the 1940s and talking about her career will be shown on KHON, Channel 2, at 10:30 p.m., tomorrow.

Q. — I was told that Bette Midler is going to appear on TV as a regular on a show without singing. Is this possible? — P.B., Bridgeport, Conn.

A. It’s possible, but it’s not about to happen. Bette Midler has not been signed to star in a straight non-musical TV series. However.she is a capable actress and would probably do well playing an offbeat character in a TV series. Bette’s current plans do not involve TV … she is readying Broadway revue in which she will star. Read More

Pink is not shy to admit that she and fellow singer Christina Aguilera have had their problems — so much so that they almost came to blows.

The pop star, 38, told Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live that while the two have made amends since their feud in the early 2000s, their relationship was very rocky.

“We were super young and super new at the whole thing, and I think I’m an alpha, and she’s an alpha,” Pink said of their feud during the “Plead the Fifth” segment. Read More

Michael Kors doesn’t pull punches. When the always-opinionated designer speaks, he’s up-front about his feelings regardless of the subject. At this morning’s Forces of Fashion conference, Kors was at his candid best. While chatting with Vogue’s Virginia Smith about the state of the industry, Kors got real about his business and fashion’s future. Tackling everything from his favorite editorials featuring his designs to the changes necessary to sustain the retail market, the designer moved from the glamorous (muses like Kirsty Hume and Jackie Kennedy) to the serious (how to combat fashion’s lack of inclusivity on the runway), handling each topic with the wit and directness he’s become known for.
