“It’s best not to be too pompous about yourself…”

“It’s best not to be too pompous about yourself. It’s better not to need a limousine for your head. Although people think I’m just ‘divine,’ I have my share of worries. I worry about growing old and losing my shape, my looks, my hair. As an entertainer, that’s my stock and trade. Oh, and I also worry that I don’t dance as well as Michael Jackson.”

AUSTIN — Donald Trump’s tossing of Univision anchor Jorge Ramos from a news gathering caught the attention of Bette Midler, who saved her surprise for the behavior of the journalists who watched it happen.

“Kinda shocked that the reporters in the room at Trump’s press conference didn’t walk out when he threw Jorge out of the room,” she said on Twitter, pointedly asking where they were hiding their backbones. Read More

BetteBack May 11, 1991: Diverse music fills everydey lives

The uses of music in people’s lives are as diverse as people themselves.

We are constantly bombarded by music, from commercial jingles to elevator music to passing car radios. In addition, most of us keep personal music for a host of different times. I hope that this, my third article on personal favorites, offers some suggestions for each
of those different moods.

Andrew Lloyd Webber — The Premier Collection: This is really nothing more than a greatest hits album with a fancy title.
