Serious?

Alright, anyone hear about the whole Barbara Steisand thing? She had a "professional heckler" in the audience (are there such people -- someone PAYS them to heckle celebrities?) who heckled her when she was saying something negative about the Bush Administration. She then told them to shut the #%&* up.
Now, from the instant I saw Funny Girl I have always thought that Barbara Steisand was a classy lady. I don't agree with basically any of her views at this point, but still felt her to classy.
But to use that language, in front of people who came to see you, paying a LOT of money to see you, I think it's shameless. When she is paid to entertain. Do that, and only that.
When she goes on Tim Russert, she can act like a loon all she wants.
But, that's just me.

  1. Totally not a classy thing to do.
    But then, is being a professional heckler a classy job either? Crazy stuff.

  3. interesting. Why can't people in the lime light use there power for good things instead of bashing other people. I don't get it.

    By the way, is that the Joel that I know on the card in your previous post?

  4. I agree with you. I have always loved Barbara. I know that her political views have always been different than mine but I loved the her talent. If I paid top dollar to come hear her sing [because the ticket was for a musical concert]and she went off on her issues I would have been ticked off. I hope people spoke up and said something. They didn't pay to come hear her rant and rave!!
