Bette Midler On Her Dad:

Bette Midler On Her Dad:”He was one of those poohpooher’s You’ll never amount to a hill of beans Maybe it was reverse psychology, hoping against hope that I would amount to something, but it was pretty painful for a long time. However, I used to fight back a lot. He couldn’t keep me down. I had too much inner belief. That cane from my mother, who always said, “Kid.you’re going to be fine”(Syracuse Herald, February 5, 1989)

BetteBack February 25, 1990: Bette Midler Admits There Are Two People Inside Her

Galveston Daily News
February 25, 1990


Bette Midler admits there are two people inside her.

“One’s a prude, the other loves trash with flash. A duchess mentality and a tramp mentality.”

Bette soon takes up the baton and will star in the film about 1940s bandleader Ina Ray Hutton.

From The Foxy Frenzy: Who doesn’t like a little Bette Midler?

Justin Rose won The Memorial Tournament on Sunday. As he nailed the putt to take home his first victory on U.S. Soil, the great Jim Nantz honored Roses’ performance with a quote from Bette Midler. I wish I could make this stuff up.

Just remember in the winter
far beneath the bitter snows

in the spring
becomes the rose”

BetteBack: The High Priestess Of Pop Culture

New York Times
September 16, 1993
Review/Pop; Midler, Closer to the Mainstream But Still Creating Quite a Splash

Wisecracking, jiggling her flesh and whooping it up in a voice that has never sounded stronger, Bette Midler retook New York on Tuesday evening.

The entertainer made her entrance at Radio City Music Hall, where she is to perform 30 shows through Oct. 23, floating over the stage inside a cardboard cloud. Its fleeces quickly parted to reveal a sun whose golden rays were dimmed by the glare of the star’s ferociously mischievous grin. Read More

BetteBack: Gypsy Treated Like Feature Film

Brassy Bette Midler bowls over TV columnists here when she shows up to plug CBS‘ adaptation of “Gypsy,” set for a December holiday airing.

“This was treated like a feature film,” says the Divine Miss M. “Nothing was skimped on, except my salary.”

Having tackled the bravura role of domineering Mama Rose, Midler remains smitten with the irresistible charm of musicals. She now wants to do “Mame” and “Annie Get Your Gun.” Or, as she puts it: “All those broad parts.” Read More
