Barbra Streisand: Back On Tour! Liza Minnelli: Running For President! (Against Her Will) Comments (0)

Twitter(Image via BarbraStreisand.com)

I have only seen Streisand perform live once, at the opening gala for the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. She had a bad cold, and my (horrid) clips on YouTube were marred by commenters stating she should retire if that was how she sounded these days. Nice.

So I should maybe get my ass to Barclays Center in August: Barbra Streisand has announced new tour dates ahead of a new duets album.

Just to make this post as gay as possible, maybe Barbra would be Liza's veep? Get the below creation here:

Streisand's GYPSY Coming Up Roses After All Comments (0)

Barbra Streisand's movie remake of Gypsy just took one rhythmic step toward becoming a reality. If the project is any good, it'll be a huge triumph—Streisand is 73, so will have to look like the mother of two young children in the early part of the film; some say her singing prime is behind her; some oddly feel like the original film is sacred (really? a movie in which the leading lady had to be dubbed?).

Hey, I say go for it. It can't be worse than The Mirror Has Two Faces, and I saw Streisand live at a mini-concert 10 years ago; in spite of an obvious cold, she sounded marvelous. Then I read the YouTube comments about how she should die and retire, not in that order.

So do it anyway, because nothing will ever please everyone.

Now that Arthur Laurents is pushing up daisies, she'll have a better chance of making a movie that comes up roses with minimal interference.

Are you excited or appalled?

So Glad He Had That Time Together: Bob Deutsch's Celebrity Photos On Display Comments (0)

PhotographyAn early Carol Burnett pic-with

Check out Bob Deutsch's amazing shots of celebrities if you're in his neighborhood in Florida—his stuff was captured when he was a star-crazy gay kid, and he wound up getting posed shots of Streisand, Burnett, Garland and many, many more.

I think you can tell a lot about a photographer from the expression of a subject in a candid photo, and his subjects always glow.

Bob spoke with SFGN of his Marilyn Monroe encounter:

He collected autographs from many of the stars, but it was an encounter with Marilyn Monroe at Madison Square Garden that would send him on a career as a celebrity photographer. Monroe was attending a 1962 salute to President John Kennedy and Deutsch spotted her getting out of her limousine, but she declined to sign his autograph book. That’s when he “went out and got a camera.”

Bob was a staple at Studio 54 as a by-then pro shooter. He remembers:

It was such a great rush to walk past all those people (waiting) in the line to get in. But, I guarantee you, I didn’t have as a good a time as the people who were dancing.

Check out his work, which spans from the early '60s through 1983.

They Had Faces Then ... And Bob Deutsch Photographed Them Comments (0)

My pal Bob Deutsch has taken some truly incredible, intimate images of celebrities in public over the decades, some of which are the only photographs from various moments and days in the lives of top stars. He has incredibly intimate shots of Carol Burnett and Barbra Streisand, mainly because he pursued and photographed them as a true fan, back when they were just starting.

If you're in Fort Lauderdale, don't miss his exhibition—the pictures tell so many stories.
