Barbra to Grace the Cover of Elle Magazine

Barbra will be on the cover of Elle Magazine’s new “Women in Hollywood 2011” edition. You can pick up your copy on newsstands beginning October 17th. A must have for every Barbra fan’s home library.

Comentarios for this News article

This is one of the best masterpieces of Musical songs ever written. Problem its is not sung by the best performing Artists. Barbara is the Artist with a great deep voice with emotion. I have listened to 3 versions of this song and I still think the song is so good it deserves the Best: Barbara.

I just wrote Elle online, and here's my message:

I have been to Barnes & Noble, Rasputin, grocery stores, and even SFO, but all I could find were Elle magazine copies with Jennifer Aniston on the cover. What is this about? Other magazines have had various covers and made the set of covers available at every newstand. In appreciation, some readers would buy the whole set. I am a Barbra memorabilia collector, but I refuse to even read the article inside your magazine unless on the cover is Ms. Streisand. I refuse to buy your magazine. You cannot have even a penny of mine, because you are guilty of false advertising. Shame on you!

Oh Barbra,

You are so gorgeous, you really inspire me. I love you so much! Please I reaaly would like to know if you'll do a concert again. It's my big dream, see you once in my life.

I love you!

I have been searching for this issue ( Ms. Streisand on cover ) for the past week and have even had friends/family looking in San Francisco and L.A. to no avail...where can this issue be found? I am one of those fans who would very much so love to have this in my collection! I have been an admirer of Ms. Streisand for fourty years having discovered her at age nine singing "People". Any information regarding this issue will be greatly appreciated. Just for the record...I have also researched elle.com as well and could not locate any additional insights. The Elle interview ( on film ) of Ms. Streisand was absolutely wonderful and I loved the elegant antique dress worn from the film "Funny Girl". Thank you Ms. Streisand !

That is very disappointing to hear that only the "subscribers" can get the Barbra cover.

Just goes to show the state of things. AGAIN, the media is trying to tell me WHAT I WANT, AND WHAT I WANT/ AND OUGHT TO SEE! I WANT TO SEE BARBRA! I KNOW WHAT I WANT. AND I DON'T NEED THEM TELLING ME THAT.

Just like that documentary on OWN last night about women, beauty, models, etc- with Gloria Steinem, Jane Fonda, and all those other powerhouse women like Ursela Burns (CEO of Xerox), etc. How it's all about trying to make women look like they are 12 years old in tv and films, and cover shoots etc. They ignore the real fact of the matter that they look beautiful at whatever age they are, and that they have a real brain in their heads.

Barbra SHOULD have been the MAIN cover- she is the ICON, not Jen, or any of those other women (and I like Jen), but Barbra was, and is, and will always be, the powerhouse, with looks, intelligence, fashion, trendsetter, pathblazer, glass ceiling buster, you get the point.

Hell, Jen wanted to be like Barbra, not Barbra like Jen! Barbra looks beautiful at her age, and women (especially in regards to fashion, etc) need to see what real women look like at certain ages and what they can aspire to become. It's like fine wine, it's like that spaghetti sauce that tastes better the second day because everything had time to get just right, lol. It's an appreciation of everything that we were, and everything we are, and still will become. So Jen gets the cover because her v- neck was down to her navel and the hem up to her crotch? Give me a break. If you seen one boob, you've seen them all. (especially fake ones, at least Barbra's are real! Guess what folks? That's what real ones look like)
It's what's inside the person's blouse that counts- not what's popping out. Like I said, I do like Jen, really I do. lol Older women needed to see Barbra on that cover, middle aged women needed to see Barbra on that cover, housewives needed to see Barbra on that cover, young girls needed to see Barbra on that cover- this could have been a massive paradigm shift for Elle. But they effin blew it.

Unless we as women demand to see these things, we will always be objectified and treated like eye candy on tv or film. One Stanford graduated scholar ( I forgt who it was- but she is very famous), was asked to REMOVE her degree from her resume when she became an actress, as they said it would be intimidating to the agents and producers- she refused to do it. As long as we women allow it- we get what we deserve. Sorry for the rant, I realize it's very Michel Foucault of me. lol

I find it very, very disappointing- I am pretty disgusted with Elle at this point. They made the wrong choice. Very bad decision.

Dearest Barbra,

Wow, what a stunning photograph and released on my fifty-second birthday. Who could ask for anything more?! Well, in fact, this gorgeous image has also made my thirty-two year anniversary of meeting my eternal companion all the more special.

Many who know me are aware that today I have ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease), which is progressing faster than I want it to progress. Yet, I can look over the years and be grateful that Steven and I have your music (and so much more Barbra) to help us enjoy all the good that is left in life for both of us.

Thank you!

Thank you for making life beautiful all of the days of my life, for always being there, and for always being you.

Say good-bye? Never.

As I tell everyone, in all you do in life, remember you are loved and listen carefully to the calling of your heart. Know that I wish you continued strength, I honor your courage, I admire your dignity, and that I hold you in my heart.

Love and be well to you and yours,

ps: oh and lots of sloppy kisses from our newly adopted puppy 'Maisie' ! What a love she is.

So so pretty!!!

I went to buy the magazine Ella and found that Jennifer Ainston is on the cover not Barbra. There is an article about her in side the magazine,it is under the Women in Hollywood. I am I looking at the wrong one?

Where's your cover? Jen's is out. Can't wait!
As usual, Barbra you look beautiful.....hope we see more of you in the coming year(s).
