Barbra Streisand or Cher - Who do gays love more?

Both of them have queer children.

So who do gays love more?

Only decide between these two.

by Anonymousreply 5302/18/2013

Wait... is it still 1975 and no one has told me?

by Anonymousreply 102/18/2013

A lot of gays don't respond to the old-school stylings of Babs.

Besides, Cher is easier to do in drag, so...

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!

by Anonymousreply 602/18/2013

Neither. I prefer Tool, Led Zeppelin, Elvis, The Beatles, Metallica and AC/DC.

Re gay children: Chet's son Chaz is such a misogynist that any lesbian with a reasonable IQ is off her. Utter disappointment there.

by Anonymousreply 802/18/2013

I loathe them equally.

by Anonymousreply 902/18/2013

There was once a time when I would have been included in that poll too!

by Anonymousreply 1002/18/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 1202/18/2013

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).

by Anonymousreply 1302/18/2013

You can't compare. They're both great. Jusst like you can't compare either of them to Liza. They are all national treasures.

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.

by Anonymousreply 1602/18/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 1702/18/2013

Babs gets more respect, but Cher gets the love.

by Anonymousreply 1802/18/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 1902/18/2013

Two great, talented but oh so different ol' broads. Love them both.

[quote] But they are friends, you know.

Where did you hear that?

by Anonymousreply 2102/18/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 2502/18/2013

Actually Babs feels a bit threatened by Cher because she has matched her in the EGOT race.

by Anonymousreply 2602/18/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 2702/18/2013

Aretha Franklin has more talent in her little finger than these two overrated, talentless bitches have in their whole body.

by Anonymousreply 2802/18/2013

Aretha Franklin had, not has.

by Anonymousreply 2902/18/2013

Has, R29, has. Aretha can still sing circles around Cher and Babs.

by Anonymousreply 3002/18/2013

r25, wrong on all counts. Cher dines with Barbra and Jim frequently and recently tweeted 'I love the Brolins!"

by Anonymousreply 3102/18/2013

I have always hated the singing -- and even more, the song choices -- of Aretha Franklin. Unpopular opinion, I know.

by Anonymousreply 3202/18/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 3302/18/2013

Plus R25 it could have been a dinner party where they were both guests. Not knowing the other would be there.

by Anonymousreply 3402/18/2013

I meant R31.

Can't stand Babs, never could. I'm fine with Cher.

by Anonymousreply 3602/18/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 3702/18/2013

Cher appreciates her fans. Barbra doesn't.

The crown goes to Cher

Touched a nerve, huh, R37? Fuck off. Your fantasies are not real.

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!

by Anonymousreply 4102/18/2013

Rock on!

by Anonymousreply 4202/18/2013

So R41 you wouldn't be watching Divas Live on VH1 ?

by Anonymousreply 4302/18/2013

R43, Uh, no! Not a friggin' chance. LOL.

by Anonymousreply 4402/18/2013

R41 what about Tina Turner

She is rock

by Anonymousreply 4502/18/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 4602/18/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 4702/18/2013

Whew! At least there is one diva that gets a pass from R41 !

by Anonymousreply 4802/18/2013

It has to be rock? that's soooooo seventies.

R27 I fucked Freddie Mercury .he was gay icon worth fucking too!

by Anonymousreply 5002/18/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 5102/18/2013

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.
