• Fluctuating values of the world’s currencies have led singer Bette Midler to ask for payment in gold — an apparent first in the entertainment business. Miss Midler’s London publicity agents said Wednesday that she would be paid in gold bullion for a planned British concert tour this fall. The “Divine Miss M” is believed to be the first major performer to be paid in bullion.
