Harper’s Bazaar interview


Streisand gives an interview to Harper’s Bazaar Magazine about writing her own autobiography in the future.

I think it’s almost time. These books about me are so stupid. When someone sends me one of them, if I have time, I look at the first page and I can tell whether or not the writer did his research. A minor detail tells a lot. Did he even visit the street I lived on? If he did, he wouldn’t write that I used to take the BMT into the city when it was the IRT. It’s silly, and yet all these fabricated and sloppy stories become your bio. I’m interested in the truth, and unauthorized biographies are not. Yes, I would like to correct those errors someday.

O Magazine interview


Streisand gives an interview to Winfrey for O Magazine about her childhood and teaching her mother how to smoke at age 10.

Very early. I was kind of a wild child, like an animal. I could never sit still at a table not that my family ever sat down and ate a meal together. I used to stand over the stove and eat out of a pot. There was no mealtime. I have no idea when my brother and sister ate, because I came in whenever I wanted. I also taught my mother how to smoke when I was 10.

O Magazine Interview


Streisand talks about her concert tour schedule:

I haven’t really performed much. In my entire career, I’ve played in a handful of cities in the United States and only three outside of America. Performers like Neil Diamond, U2, and Madonna tour every two years and sing in hundreds of cities all over the world. My friend Diana Krall told me she used to tour 300 out of 365 days a year. I’ve worked so little, which is why the idea of retirement is ridiculous.
