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.

As the Los Angeles Times described the occasion (in a story headlined  Barbra Streisand opens the Annual Paley Fest on a high note,)  “Friday’s salute … Read more »

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 »

After putting out an article (on this website) about how fake news gets almost double the tweets than real news, I felt really sad. Why are people so drawn to insults and negativity? Why do fake stories sell more than true ones ? Is it human nature? It was disconcerting to see, in an article about me, how an anecdote about “the boys club” on a set gets turned into a vicious piece of nonsense. I was talking about a … Read more »

Attn. Streisand Foundation Staff & Ms. Streisand.

We are writing to you from The Pet Fund, the largest national nonprofit that pays for veterinary care for those who cannot afford it. After reading media sources report criticism regarding your recent successful dog cloning, we wanted to send our support for your decision for two reasons: first, cloning is an important aspect of cancer research, and second, the response to losing a pet is a process no one has the right … Read more »

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 »

Women are now proving they are powerful when they stick together and are unafraid to speak truth to power… unafraid to stand arm in arm with EVERY American and find a way forward together. Many of us were at the history-making march last year when Donald Trump was inaugurated, and we were hoping against hope that some good would come out of this Administration. Unfortunately, day-by-day, Trump has provided us – – both by his actions and … Read more »

Here’s a terrible fact—

There has not been a single woman who has won the Golden Globe for Best Director since I was fortunate enough to win it for Yentl in 1984…that’s 34 years ago!    Not right!

More women should be directing!

In my humble opinion, I was very disappointed that director Dee Rees and her powerful film Mudbound wasn’t even nominated.

I also would have liked to see director Patty Jenkins and her exciting film Wonder Woman be recognized

Has this new era of secrecy, lies, and deceit in the government and
corporations started to infect our states, our cities, our communities,
our core values and beliefs? We cannot let our politicians and corporate
CEOs get away with lying to us. The president steals such slogans
as “Leave No Child Behind” and then cuts funding for schools

     That question has posed itself recently
as the spiraling miracles of technology devise seemingly infinite
ways in which certain websites can strip away our last shreds of privacy

     In 1984, Barbra Streisand was in the
Middle East and appeared on the Good Morning America show via inter-continental
satellite. A common practice now, that technology was in its early
stages, and Streisand commented at the end of the interview, “If only

With all of the wealth in this country, why do we have schools in

and that there are few civilian casualties.

that might have been avoided.

I wrote these questions in September, 2002, but never put them

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.

The movies: “Yentl,” from 1983; “The Prince of Tides,” from 1991; and “The Mirror Has Two Faces,” from 1996.

The verdict: 

Very good. All three movies garnered multiple Oscar nominations. Ms. Streisand wasn’t nominated for a directing Oscar for “The Prince of Tides,” which received seven nominations in all, an omission that 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 »

Her Sunday night show at Toyota Center was an exercise in perfectionism. Tasteful tea sets sat on tables. Flowers were tastefully arranged. A waitress in a black apron refreshed the tea during intermission.

Streisand herself clicked on an electric candle during the introduction to “Papa, Can You Hear Me?” from “Yentl.”

A large teleprompter hung above the audience halfway across the floor. Every … Read more »
