“When I was a teenager, I wanted to be Barbra Streisand,” says Donna Karan, who was a freshman at Hewlett High School on New York’s Long Island when the singer’s Grammy-winning debut, The Barbra Streisand Album, became a smash hit in 1963. “I cut my hair to look like her, and I listened to … Read more »

The circumstance of climate change and the circumstances of California’s drought being clear, the four lawns (of the six on Barbra Streisand’s and James Brolin’s property) that the couple have allowed to desiccate and brown represent the kind of sacrifice everyone has to make. One of the two lawns maintained even with their drastic cutback in water usage continues to be among the most aerial-photographed on the planet. The one by her pool, the smallest of the six, will continue … Read more »

The recent news on the front page of the New York Times was stark. As thousands of diplomats were gathering in Lima, Peru, to work on an agreement to limit greenhouse gas emissions, scientists and climate policy experts were warning

Larry Kramer does not need me to publicize his beautiful play. It stands on its own. For the last time – I will answer his complaints, which rewrite history.
When I saw the play in 1985 I was very moved and immediately contacted Larry to acquire the rights. After going through several drafts with Larry, I hired another writer to develop a screenplay that was faithful to Larry’s play — but adapting it to make it more cinematic. It was … Read more »

Haahaa…. If my sweet wife and I can ever get out of bed
(somedays it’s noon)… I have long planned to paper our vintage barn’s
outhouse walls, with these excremental egested rag articles that are
void of even a sniff of truth. Of course, she has held me back with
her gift for perfect decor. But I still say my idea is more
authentic,… Haahaa. Right?

I asked my wife if I could borrow her Truth Alert to respond to the latest tabloid nonsense, an outrageous story that I oppose her doing “Gypsy.” These scandal sheet guys only print stuff that is the exact opposite of the truth. I’m already lined up to buy the first ticket for that film. Her youthful beauty will perfectly complement her singing and performance. But the point here is that tabloids only traffic in bad news, bad news that they … Read more »

I was just made aware of a ridiculous story in one of those weekly rags. This is just to say that the story is untrue in every respect, just unmitigated, sloppy, and malicious invention. The madness of the constant inaccuracy of these publications is evidenced by the fact that in this recent story the main photo they use of “Jason” is not even Jason!… Read more »

I’ve endured Larry Kramer’s outbursts in the past, not wishing to dignify them with a response. But at a time when we are all pulling together to achieve such giant steps toward gay equality, it is anguishing to me to have my devotion to this cause so distorted. I think my efforts for the gay community and my immersion in securing its constitutional entitlement and other equitable rights is quite evident and a matter of record.
During the time we … Read more »

I was happy to hear recently that the Loew’s Kings Theater in Brooklyn, New York will be undergoing renovations for a reopening in 2014 . It was one of those beautiful old movie palaces of the past. I was 13 years old when I first started spending many a wonderful afternoon there, partly because it had double features, air conditioning and great ice cream cones.
I’d like to set the record straight on one point. Some articles have said that … Read more »

To clarify the ridiculous assertions relating to Barbra Streisand’s participation in the new “We Are The World,” the recording of which I attended with her, Barbra hit it on her first take, but then asked Patti Austin, who was producing the vocal session, if she could do a few more to see what else she might come up with. Patti thought the first take was perfect, and she thought the fourth one was more perfect. They stopped at “more perfect.” … Read more »

A message from Craig Hall – content manager for Barbra’s official websites.
Dear Barbra fans –
Amongst the many wonderful comments you’ve made on Barbra’s Instagram, Facebook and Twitter pages, a few have asked if she’s really posting these photos and if the captions are really hers.
The answer is simple, or may I say “Simply Streisand!”.
Barbra sends me many photos from her personal archives… some come from the collection of her A&R man Jay Landers, and some are … Read more »

Since 1984, more women than men have died each year from heart disease. Heart disease is now the No. 1 killer of women, causing more deaths than all cancers combined. And yet only 56 percent of American women realize that heart disease is their greatest health threat. To combat this gap in understanding – and the heart disease epidemic itself – Barbra Streisand has co-founded the Women’s Heart Alliance, a collaboration between the Barbra Streisand Women’s … Read more »
