Thank you, Dr. Collins, for your work to improve human health, including the Human Genome Project and the “All of Us” Precision Medicine Biobank. And thank you all for making me feel so welcome.

NIH is known for its world-renowned trailblazing medical research. The closest thing I have to a medical credential is my role in What’s Up, Doc?

Singer, actress, director & philanthropist to meet health leaders to advance gender equity research and ensure women’s heart disease is a health policy priority

Washington, D.C.  (May 15, 2018) — Barbra Streisand, co-founder of the Women’s Heart Alliance, was in the nation’s capitol today to deliver the prestigious J. Edward Rall Cultural Lecture at the National Institutes of Health and raise awareness about women’s heart health and cardiovascular disease (CVD), which kills more women each year in the U.S. than … Read more »

In an ovation-filled evening, Barbra Streisand received the Paley Media Center’s coveted Icon Tribute Award from that organization’s  CEO and President Maureen Reidy, culminating an evening of laughter and surprising revelations as television’s noted power producer and lifelong Streisand fan, Ryan Murphy, engaged in  a conversation of candor, truth, wit and charm with the star.

To clarity misinformation in a story issued by local Los Angeles television station, KABC, the nature of cloning occasionally results in the birth of a litter rather than a single animal. The cloning procedure in this case resulted in a litter of four beautiful puppies, three of which survived. The KABC story was inaccurate in it’s headline which stated that Ms. Streisand had had beloved Coton de Tuléar, Samantha, cloned twice. The fact is that in using the DNA of … Read more »

I wrote these questions in September, 2002, but never put them
on my website. I think they are still relevant questions and are
worth considering:

1. How many body bags does the military expect to send home to
America?

2. What is the cost of the war in billions of dollars? One advisor
to the president estimates the war would cost up to $200 billion,
but he was quickly replaced by a more conservative successor.

This is a statement from George Bush, Sr. and National Security Advisor
Brent Scowcroft’s co-authored book, A World Transformed, written in 1998
(chapter 19, page 489) that is incredibly relevant right now. Former
President Bush and Scowcroft reflect on why the United States did not
try to remove Saddam Hussein from power at the end of the Gulf War:

Bush’s explanation in his State of the Union speech for why we need to
attack Iraq right now was unconvincing. Here are a couple of questions
that have not been answered:

Where is the link between al Qaeda and Saddam Hussein? Not only has the
Bush administration given us zero evidence of a connection, but many
experts think that a connection is unlikely given the fact that one
society is secular and the other is fundamentalist… There is no reason… Read more »

It has long been understood that the only way to create a fair society
is to give each child an equal chance at success … The Bush administration
understands this rhetoric, and even stole the Children Defense Fund’s
“Leave No Child Behind” motto for last year’s education
bill. However, as the Children Defense Fund’s website points out,
Bush’s policies would more appropriately be entitled, “Leave
No Millionaire Behind.” Bush has done more than any president

While we are all rooting for President Bush to win the War on
Terrorism, it is important that we know the facts about the homeland
and national security debate. The assertion that Democrats are not
committed to homeland and national security is ludicrous and is a
perfect example of the ability of the Republican spin machine to distort
the issues. In fact, a little history is in order:

debating WAR when twenty-five hours were spent filing for a sewage permit.

According to Senator Edward Kennedy, twenty-three days were spent debating the Agriculture Bill.

When I do an interview, I like to be quoted accurately. I also expect the truth to be told, with facts checked.

This is why I’m reluctant to give interviews without having quote approval. In last week’s Variety article, they mistakenly made it sound like I didn’t want to be in Funny Girl! What??? I fought hard for that part! How could they make that mistake? I loved the character of Fanny Brice (they even misspelled her name Franny).… Read more »

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 »

Barbra Streisand gushed more than once that Monday’s concert at downtown Miami’s AmericanAirlines Arena, the closing date of her 13-concert “The Music…The Mem’ries…The Magic! Tour,” was to be her last concert.

She never grandstanded the statement or milked it for melancholy. She said it with what sounded like gratitude — a theme she would return to often during the two-plus-hour, 26-song set. This was the longest show of the tour, which was fitting since … Read more »
