It seems that Barbra Streisand lost her cool in a concert in New York...her first in a long time, when a heckler wasn't happy about her making fun of President Bush. At around $240 a ticket, he wanted to hear her sing and not listen to her political views.

He's right, no?

La Diva looked out into the audience and shouted,
'Shut the f...up!'


But!!! and here's the biggie...the audience was so shocked they shut up!!!

Now, I wonder if it will work in other places. Hmmmmm
Mr. President Katzav, sir, did you?
Shut the f...up!

Hey! BinLaden! Come out come out wherever you are!
Shut the f...up!

Nasrallah effendi. We want our kidnapped soldiers NOW!
Shut the f...up!

Shut the f...up!

And just like the magic words...'Pluck your magic twanger, Froggie' for those of you old enough to remember...and 'Hokus Pokus' for those who aren't...all the bad people just shrunk away to nothing.

Shut the f...up! and Iran can't have the bomb.
Shut the f...up! and Muslim women can come out into the sun.
Shut the f...up! and we get the oil and they get the sand.

Ahhhhh, the things that dreams are made of.

Barbra, metukah (sweetie), I don't care if you sleep with Bush or Clinton or anyone else for that matter. It's not my business. If I want to hear about politics I can read my paper, watch TV, or go read the bloggers!

I know you said you were sorry.
So did Mel Gibson.

Four words and you turned a golden idol into a thing of brass. It's one thing if you walk out of the house wearing dirty underwear, and only you know. But another altogether if, God forbid, you are in an accident and all those doctor people see. (Didn't your Bubbie tell you that when you were growing up?)

My Dad,AH always said that a person is born naked and dies naked...all he has left is his good name.

Feh, Barbra, feh. And I thought you were a classy broad. Now we know.

Shabbat shalom...have a great day...stay safe...and thanks for dropping in.

Ohhhh, you're good "Merti", you are really good! I totally agree. If I paid $250 to be entertained, I want to be entertained. I don't want to hear someone elses warped political opinions I can hear for free on the evening news channel of my choice any day of the week. Furthermore, I used to be a fan of Babbs, but no more. She revealed her true colors years ago. Her potty mouth was out of the closet years ago also.

Too bad the "F" word doesn't accomplish the magic you suggested. But the reality is, it simply reveals the character of the one using it. It's is the most disgusting of all words in the universe. Mel Gibson blew it and blamed it on alcohol. Babbs has no excuse. She's just vulgar.
I hope people remember that the next time she does a rediculously expensive concert (so she can donate that money to her favorite political candidate).

Love you kiddo. You bless me with your wonderful talent and insight.

shabbat shalom four letter word just changed her career forever...and she has no one to blame but herself...what was she thinking in the first place???she's rich and famous but that doesn't make her a political mayven...but her dabbling into politics might make her a little less rich and a lawyer friend of mine says 'dummystupidhead'...

I still love her voice, but I have to agree that what she did was just plain rude and out of line.

Loved where you went, though, in your post... I would absolutely LOVE to hear someone from the press during a Bush press conference, yell "Shut the F... up!" How great would that be! ;)

Have a happy Simchat Torah!

In 1925, when he was just two years old, Marcel Marceau's mother told HIM to shut the f- up !

Hi there.

I'm still here.
I just had to go to see man about a horse.
He's soooooo FINE.

But of course!!!!, I have my opinion.
I love B.S's voice
"Funny Girl, Funny Lady, Yentle her C.Ds, I love it love it, love it, love it.
BUT: she made a major boo,boo.
She misrepresented herself.
She lied to the audience who came to hear her sing.
She pulled a fundraiser for a political cause.
If she wants us to hear her political views (Which everybody is familiar with already) she should choose other venues.
She lied to all about her charity as well.
The funds are to support her political candidates.
What if we disagree with her point of view ?
We have to choose between B.S.- the singer, or B.S.-the political activist.

Well Miss Streisand: You are full of B.S.
And Pleeeease don't tell me to Shut the F**k up.


The Bald and the beautiful

That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
Have good yontev, good Shabbos, stay safe and keep out trouble.

Good post. She used to be a favorite until she used her fame for politics. I believe she was one of a few who said she would leave the country if Bush was elected.

From a US perspective, I wish she would just leave. I might even buy her a one-way ticket. But don't head to 'the land'.

Thanks for stopping by.

I don't like Streisand enough to defend her, but it should be noted that the the heckler in the audience chose to interupt a comedy skit which had a Bush impersonator and La Streisand exhanging some dialogue. It was a skit, not a political speech.

That doesn't excuse her use of F*** to tell the guy to shut up, but let's set the record straight. The heckler interrupted her show. Had it been Bush on stage and had a Streisand fan heckled him, the heckler would have been arrested. That happened last month in Colorado when someone had the audacity to criticize Vice President Cheney to his face.

Just for the record.

Shabat shalom, Marallyn.

The audiance was shocked!?! No way!
Barbs true colors have shown for years and years...Back when I was a kid I liked her in Funny Girl. My Mamma's ultra conservative and had been out of pocket for a few days and missed this news. When I relayed it to her she wasn't shocked one bit. Wouldn't it be hysterical if those were the magic words? Oh, and did Bush show his "true colors" when he used the word "sh-t" on stage. OOps don't forget to turn your mic off...Hey Barb...what about freedom of speech...looks like Mr. Hecklar got what he paid for considering the source. barb...honey stick to singin...President Bush...your fabulous!!!! SoJourner I'll go halvsies with you on that one way flight for Barb. And just in case your wondering...yes the F word is yucky...

Thanks for reading. stay safe!

shalom from the USA,midwest.I like your blog.I saw you on my friend Lloyeds blog{cheated are the clouds.}I love the Holy land and have prayed for the peace over there for years.old barb is too into herself to know the truth.if we do not help our friends the jews we would be cursed.because God said "I will bless those who bless you,and curse those who curse you.we ain,t dumb in the USA.but we do need to clean up our act in hollywood and all around.too much evil is alowed in this country.thank God we have a believer in the white house.a man who ain,t afraid to pray to God.there is too many people in this world who think they can kick God out of things.its funny they think they can.God simply laughs at them.people who use that word do it for shock value,and because they aren,t to smart.its a made up word for some thing that God calls beatiful between a man and woman.of course evil minded people and those who don,t know God would use it.babbs has a long way to go.
