Only on Sunday, while perusing the aisles of HMV with my Bessie Pamela, I was adamantly expressing my dislike of Barbra Streisand.
Yes I know theatre folk and their musical-loving, gay-icon-worshipping counterparts will gasp at that admission and quickly search around for something blunt and large to throw, but I just don’t like her.
And I don’t get the fascination with her.
Sure the dame can sing, but so can a hell of a lot of other people, who are far more appealing and much easier on the eye.
Pamela was shocked -she loves her as much as I love Judy Garland- and so ensued a tirade of
“You’re a sap”
“Eh you’re a sap”
“No, it is you who is le sap”
“Indeed, sir, you are mistaken, for it is you who is said sap”
And so on…..
But here I see Jennifer Aniston has channelled Babs for Harper’s September Issue and I tip my hat to her, cos there are some great shots!
It’s really good.
And I like it!
Probably because it’s not the actual Streisand….
