Barbra Streisand Reveals Title of Her Trump-Era Inspired Album, Dispute with Weinstein, Future of GYPSY & More!
Living legend Barbra Streisand is already at work on her next album. When asked in a recent interview whether the Trump presidency would inspire new music, she told Variety: "Absolutely. As a matter of fact, I'm doing an album. The next one I'm doing is called "What's on My Mind." I have to express myself in these ways, lyrically and melodically."
Will she channel what's on her mind into a live stage performance? Probably not. "I still have stage fright," she told Variety. "I'm not going to sing live again. Scott Rudin and Barry Diller wanted me to do 'Gypsy' on Broadway and film it. I thought, 'Are you kidding me?'"
Streisand also revealed a recent dispute that she had with infamous producer Harvey Weinstein on the opening night of Finding Neverland in 2015. "I thought he was vulgar. He wanted me to come there on his arm and sing a song on the album. I said, 'No. I can't do that.'"
