The Barbra Streisand Thread.

I had read, like most of you, the silliness of the Janet Jackson posts. The Gaga posts. The Madonna posts. I thought you'd all like something to jog your memory into what becomes a legend.

Ladies and gentlemen, a live performance in her own Malibu backyard as a fund raiser for the Democratic National Party.

May I present....

She's no Julie Budd.

Absolutely spectacular.

She's insane. They are all insane. It's great.

She sings circles around Janet. Always has, always will.

She'll be remembered long after the planet has forgotten about Janet.

Has she ever got her pasty-covered tit out, though?

GOD she is GOOD! Everyone pales into silliness against her.

Unfortunately she just doesnt sound like the OP's youtube vid anymore...those days are gone. I still love her and consider her a miracle and have seen her live and treasure the memory.

Well, to be fair, Streisand's voice is one in a zillion. Comparing her to other singers really isn't appropriate.

I always thought it was a pity that she wanted to be an actress and then a director so much more than she ever wanted to be a singer.

The one valid criticism of her singing came from Truman, of course, he said she turned everything into a three-act opera - which she pretty much did. Still, no one can touch Barbra as a singer. No one.

(I say this as a Janbot admirer - as well as a fan of Whitney's before she smoked her voice.)

Also - Barbra's a strong Democratic Party supporter. She never wavers, even when the Faux Noise thugs gang up on her. It's admirable.

I love the DL gnats like R12. They come in, buzz around, say something ridiculous as if it's profoundly witty and then leave. Usually these gnats add "gramps" to their comments as if it's a withering retort that will cause hundreds of DL'ers to fall over in a dead faint.

As if. The bitch even got her ass handed to her by that high-yella Welsh singer at last year's Oscar telecast.

She's always been overrated as a singer and actress.

Well, Diana/R15, you know all about being an overrated singer.

by Anonymousreply 1710/28/2013

Yeah Diana. At least Barbra can get a table at Spago without a reservation. Can you say the same?

by Anonymousreply 1810/28/2013

R18 Barbra can always get a table at Spago, and so can Diana. It was La Scala that would not seat 'Miss Ross' for lunch.

I know she's too old but I would love her to do Gypsy...

It's not as if she gave up singing for directing. She's been producing plenty of albums over the year, not to mention the multiple concerts.

plus she built a house! And it is color coded!!!!
