 “Don’t Lie to Me”

Barbra is Watching Drumpf

One of my of all time, favorite music icons is using her platform to express her feelings about the reality which the ‘squatter in the White House’ has with the truth and with facts.

One awesome voice speaking for many of us!!

Barbra Streisand is always watching Drumpf 

When we spoke, she had just tweeted about him and read it aloud:

“All President Trump cares about is winning.

He said it during his campaign, and he says it now.

But what do we all lose as he wins?”

Streisand, no stranger to politics throughout her career, is releasing her first album of original songs since 2005, called Walls, on November 2.

Late last month, she released the album’s first single, “Don’t Lie to Me,” which is a direct address to the president. And on Tuesday, Streisand released the music video – the first she’s ever directed – complete with images of protests and even a sign somewhere in there that says “Stop Kavanaugh.”

“I’m just so concerned with our country and the world,” she said. “When I say in the song ‘we all lose,’ do we lose our integrity as a nation? Do we lose our reputation in the world? One of the songs talks about a beacon of light, and ‘Lady Liberty’ talked about the danger in the sound of silence, when people don’t speak up, when people don’t vote. And now we have a leader who can’t be trusted. The way he pushed Kavanaugh onto the Supreme Court to protect himself is unconscionable; we have a leader and now a Supreme Court justice who tells lies.”

She added that it’s the young people of this country who are already living out the message of her new album and who have already set the example of what good activism looks like.

“As I say in the booklet of the new album, I’ve been especially moved by the young people in the United States who have found their voice and are demanding to be heard,” she said.

“They’re more interested in building bridges than walls; they are the very definition of hope.

They’re on my mind, and I dedicate this album to them.”

PRINCE …. “One year ago today …. he crossed the ‘Purple Bridge’ …. “!!

ONE YEAR AGO TODAY

I can’t believe how fast time flies.

A year ago we received the news of Prince passing.

He was found in Paisley Park, lifeless.

Many theories were presented, many half truths, many rumors.

No matter the reason, a huge musical giant, an amazing musician, a masterful influence was gone.

He crossed his ‘Purple Bridge”.

And left his many fans behind!

From a Facebook Member, Josie Fletcher … had to share! 
Prince isn’t dead … he just hopped on his “Little Red Corvette” … with his “Raspberry Beret” … drove off through the “Purple Rain“, over “Graffiti Bridge” … under the “Cherry Moon“, partying like it’s “1999” … because this is what happens “When Doves Cry“!!

Prince Rogers Nelson (June 7, 1958 – April 21, 2016) was an American singer-songwriter, actor, multi-instrumentalist, philanthropist, dancer and record producer. He was a musical innovator who was known for his eclectic work, flamboyant stage presence, extravagant dress and makeup, and wide vocal range.

His music integrates a wide variety of styles, including funk, rock, R&B, new wave, soul, psychedelia, and pop. He has sold over 100 million records worldwide, making him one of the best-selling artists of all time.

He won seven Grammy Awards, an American Music Award, a Golden Globe Award and an Academy Award for the film Purple Rain.

He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004, his first year of eligibility. Rolling Stone ranked Prince at number 27 on its list of 100 Greatest Artists, “the most influential artists of the rock & roll era“.

OVER-RATED, OVER-DECORATED,OVER-BERATED

ROUND TWO

Meryl wins also this round!

This is one of my favorite actresses. I grew up with Meryl around.

We are almost the same age.

She’s an American icon.

And she’s standing up for us!

She’s standing up for American values and as an ally of the LGBT community.

Thank you, Meryl.

Rock on!

Meryl Streep Responds to Drumpf Calling Her “Over-rated”

Meryl Streep likes to load her dishwasher. She likes to sit quietly and read. She likes to garden. Most of all, as she told the audience at the Human Rights Campaign Greater New York Gala on Saturday night, February 11, she likes to “stay the fuck home.”

But the actress, who, along with late-night host Seth Meyers, was the recipient of the HRC Ally for Equality Award, left the house to stand in support of her LGBTQ friends in the Drumpf era.

She said all of this during her speech without even mentioning the president’s name.

The legendary actress, who previously delivered a fiery take-down of Drumpf at the Golden Globes (also without saying his name), told attendees at the HRC gala that in the end, the current administration could serve as a valuable wake-up call.

“If we live through this precarious moment . . . if his catastrophic instinct to retaliate doesn’t lead us to nuclear winter, we have much to thank this president for, because he will have woken us up to how fragile freedom really is,”

she said to the crowd gathered at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City.

Streep experienced Drumpf’s famously thin skin after her Globes oration in January when he tweeted that the actress was “over-rated.”

The actress and honoree also had a response for Drumpf’s claim.

“Yes, I am the most overrated, over-decorated, and currently, over-berated actress . . . of my generation,” she joked.

“But that is why you invited me here! Right?”

‘Good Morning’ …. Debbie Reynolds …. a sad way to start the day …. for those left behind …. “!!


gm

~~December 29, 2016~~

THE SAD REALITY

With two more days to go in 2016, we’d thought the passing of beloved ones would have ended.

George Michael, Christmas day. Carrie Fisher, the day after.

And Debbie Reynolds, a day after her daughter’s passing.

Many have expressed how unforgiving 2016 has been.

Here’s one more example.

Strength to all those left behind.

I think we are going to need it.

~Singin’ in the Rain scene that made Debbie Reynolds a star~

Debbie Reynolds — who died December 28 at age 84 — was 19 years-old when her life changed forever.

After cutting her teeth on cabaret performances and winning the Miss Burbank pageant in 1948, Reynolds landed the part of Kathy Selden in Singin’ in the Rain, the 1952 classic that would launch her career. She was to sing and dance opposite Donald O’Connor and Gene Kelly, lauded Hollywood mainstays with decades of performing experience, while she had almost none, and zero dancing experience to speak of.

Debbie Reynolds – who rose to stardom in “Singin’ in the Rain” and quickly became a staple among Hollywood royalty – died Wednesday, December 28, as a result of a stroke, just one day after her daughter Carrie Fisher passed away,  according to her son Todd.

I was a toddler when this movie came out. My love for music, movies eventually lead me to this timeless classic.

I grew up with the presence of Debbie Reynolds in my life.

A huge void has been left behind.
