Yes, Eminem Sampled Bette Midler’s ‘The Rose’ On His New Album (Audio Embedded In Article) – What Do You Think?

Eminem’s ‘Revival’: A Track-by-Track Guide

Eminem, the best-selling rapper of all time, returned at midnight with Revival, his first album in four years. The new LP sprawls across 19 tracks, touching on rock, gospel, pop and, of course, hard-bitten hip-hop. Eminem veers from sassy to self-deprecating, dependent to dismissive, murderous to politically conscious, uncontrollably lusty to borderline repentant, sometimes all within the same song. He raps over skeletal, golden-age beats courtesy of Rick Rubin and stirring piano ballads from longtime collaborator Alex da Kid; he teams up with locally known artists like Phresher as well as global stars like Beyoncé, Pink and Alicia Keys. Across it all, Eminem remains intent on convincing listeners that he’s still at the top of his game: “Will I ever fall off/That day’ll never come.” Here’s a guide to understanding the album’s producers, songwriters, guests and key themes.

BetteBack February 26, 1998: Bette Midler Presents At The 1998 Grammy Awards

The Boston Globe

Kelsey Grammer presided over last night’s Grammy Awards ceremony like a nervous substitute teacher. Wearing a broad white collar that threatened to swallow his head, he stiffy milked jokes out of his scant knowledge of today’s music, wrapping his mouth around phrases like “jiggy wit it” and “Wu-Tang Clan.” The live telecast’s returns from commercials were consistently ill-timed, and at one point we caught Grammer asking someone, “Do I look OK?” Read More

Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson and Bette Midler might not seem like they have much in common, but the two performers have quite the “budding” friendship. Hoping to give back to the Jamaica, Queens neighborhood where he grew up, the famous rapper has joined forces with Midler’s New York Restoration Project (NYRP) to breathe new life into what’s now known as the 50 Cent Garden.

Bette Midler On That Old Feeling:

Bette Midler On That Old Feeling: “Leslie Dixon wrote this for me. We both wanted to do something big and broad, and I’m thrilled with it. I love those kinds of characters, the fight scenes are great, the love scenes are great, and there’s a little bit of music in it and all this romance. It seems like the right thing at the right time, and I’m really proud of it.” (New York Daily News, 1997)

Bette Midler On Movies: “I would have liked to have made a really great picture. The last picture that really told me something about the human condition was maybe `The Godfather’, ” she says. I also liked `The Birdcage’, it was sweet.”
