Yesh, r1, and it sheemsh they forgot to include me!
Barbra Streisand is not a gay icon. Let's put this urban legend to bed alright?
Making me choose is like Sophie's Choice. I can't; I just can't.
Both of these bitches multiplied by a googlplex do not begin to touch me!
Judy Judy JUDY
Neither. I prefer Tool, Led Zeppelin, Elvis, The Beatles, Metallica and AC/DC.
Gay Man Who Has No Use For The Divas
Re gay children:
Chet's son Chaz is such a misogynist that any lesbian with a reasonable IQ is off her. Utter disappointment there.
I loathe them equally.
There was once a time when I would have been included in that poll too!
Apples and oranges. They each are completely different from each other in their musical styles. Cher can rock. Streisand does beautiful ballads but can't rock. They are both very good at what they do. Been a Cher fan since I first heard Baby Don't Go so I guess I'm a little biased. Anyone who bashes either one will never be a friend of mine. Just like anyone who doesn't like animals will be on my shit list as well.
Oh shut up, R11.
Cher seems the nicer one of the two. Whereas I could imagine her being very friendly and funny and witty with an ordinary fan (like me!), I would think Babs would be more likely to act disdainfully (at best).
You can't compare. They're both great. Jusst like you can't compare either of them to Liza. They are all national treasures.
i need a charlie explanation
Streisand, a lot more vocal talent (although admittedly Cher might've been a better actress at her peak) and always cool on political issues. And she's smarter, I can't imagine her twittering her love of Joel Osteen for instance.
Cher was who I towel-wigged and hairbrush-miked to in the 1960s. Barbra was that girl who sang "People" on that album my mother alternated with her Neil Diamond albums.
Babs gets more respect, but Cher gets the love.
There is no question who is more talented. Cher is drag-queen fun and had some truly stellar moments (Moonstruck). Cher is loads of fun in concert. But Streisand is on a level with Sinatra, Fitzgerald and Garland. Talent-wise, Cher doesn't touch her. But they are friends, you know.
Two great, talented but oh so different ol' broads. Love them both.
[quote] But they are friends, you know.
Where did you hear that?
Curious that they're not friends. Similar age, similar careers (acting/singing), sexual minority offspring. They even lived nearby each other at one point, but did not socialize.
My guess is that Babs acted a bit frosty, and Cher- ever the chip on her shoulder- said fuck that bitch.
"But they are friends, you know."
Um, no, they're acquaintances not friends. Like in how are you in passing. They don't hang out, invite each other over or go shopping together.
Actually Babs feels a bit threatened by Cher because she has matched her in the EGOT race.
I much prefer Freddie Mercury to those two cunts. He was far more talented than either. He's my gay icon. Cher, I can deal with. Barbra sucks roadkill. Hate her.
Aretha Franklin has more talent in her little finger than these two overrated, talentless bitches have in their whole body.
Aretha Franklin had, not has.
Has, R29, has. Aretha can still sing circles around Cher and Babs.
r25, wrong on all counts. Cher dines with Barbra and Jim frequently and recently tweeted 'I love the Brolins!"
I have always hated the singing -- and even more, the song choices -- of Aretha Franklin. Unpopular opinion, I know.
R25, I could tweet the same thing, it doesn't make it true. I say she dined with them once at best if at all.
Plus R25 it could have been a dinner party where they were both guests. Not knowing the other would be there.
I meant R31.
R31, I could tweet the same thing, it doesn't make it true. I say she dined with them once at best if at all.
Can't stand Babs, never could. I'm fine with Cher.
r25/29/33/35, you obviously know nothing about it and are talking out of your ass. You ought to shut up before making an even bigger fool out of yourself.
Cher appreciates her fans. Barbra doesn't.
The crown goes to Cher
Touched a nerve, huh, R37? Fuck off. Your fantasies are not real.
Now, now, children.
I can guarantee that no gay who worships Cher, Barbra, Liza, Judy, Bette, etc. is under 60 years of age. Those women were all popular when Christ was in Pampers. Most of the gays I know who are under 50 like rock, classic rock, indie rock, alternative, industrial, etc. I know no gays under 60 who worship those women. I am 32 and I like all types of ROCK MUSIC, not that overblown, overproduced squawking by those ancient, plastic-surgeried, has-been divas. Fuck them all up the ass!
So R41 you wouldn't be watching Divas Live on VH1 ?
R43, Uh, no! Not a friggin' chance. LOL.
R41 what about Tina Turner
She is rock
Cher, Judy, Striesand, Madonna, Minelli. No thanks, old fashioned music and quite tacky. Some did some interesting stuff in the early part of their careers, but mostly it's been lame and dull.
R45, She gets a pass. She did rock in her day. She would get a pass solely for her version of "Proud Mary", which kicked ass. Also "Nutbush City Limits" (always loved that filthy title). She's goes on the cool list.
Whew! At least there is one diva that gets a pass from R41 !
It has to be rock? that's soooooo seventies.
R27 I fucked Freddie Mercury .he was gay icon worth fucking too!
I really couldn't care less about the two of them. Barbra had a beautiful voice in her prime, but I don't worship her. I prefer Diana. And I'm well under 60; my parents aren't even 60.
I've waited on both of them at the makeup counter.
Cher was friendly,funny and easy to work with. Babs was cold and dificult.
Hands down I'd pick Cher as someone I'd rather spend time with.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
