Barbara Streisand Less Than Butter On Concert Demands
As Mike Meyers character Linda Richman used to say on the Saturday Night Live skit Coffee Talk, Barbara Streisand is “like butter.” Indeed, take one look at her carbon footprint while on tour and you’ll see nothing but fat, fat, fatty.
“The diva herself would be ferried around in a limousine accompanied by her entourage in 13 tractor-style trailer trucks, before being whisked to London on her private jet after the two-and-ahalf-hour concert. Waiting for her backstage were five fabric-upholstered furniture suites, 60 tables and 120 bath-sized towels.”
As the site points out, these actions could just be chalked up to those of the rich and famous. Unfortunately, Streisand has aligned her foundation with supporting environmental initiatives — something she wrote about passionately on her website last fall. Here’s an interesting quote from the article,
“The piece acknowledges that while stopping global warming is an overwhelming and daunting task, everyone has the power to make a difference by making simple, conscious decisions in their every day lives.”
Great choices Barbara. I’d hang on to those towels – if only to wipe the pie off your face.
