liza minnelli carries on!


good evening! of course i can’t resist doing a post about one of my favorite ladies – ms. liza minnelli who performed last night (although she had visa drama upon entering the UK) at london’s coliseum (read a kind review) looking great (heck – what can you really say about a lady who paints her eyebrows on? she does what she can…) at age 62 she’s been through the ringer over the years – battling personal demons including drugs, alcohol, weight, and has already had two hip replacements (not to mention her disastrous 4th marriage to fug david gest – she’s never been lucky in love)


yet she still manages to pull herself together – of course she’s a bit messy these days but you have to give liza plenty of points for effort & her exuberant spirit! i’ve never seen her live – that would be the ultimate even if she isn’t what she used to be (her oscar-winning performance as ‘sally bowles’ (w/ her signature green fingernails) in 1972’s cabaret is ranked my top female performance of all-time) i just love her to pieces – along with her mom judy garland – may she rest in peace (yes i know it’s all so very stereotypical ‘gay’ but i simply cannot pass up liza or judy!)


i found an old clip of liza appearing on the muppet show back in 1979 – singing ‘everything’s coming up roses’ – holy cow – i’d love to see ms. minnelli tackle the role of ‘mama rose’ from gypsy (unfortunately i think that ship has sailed) tomorrow it’s back to the daily grind – i’m so over the three day weekend which wasn’t all that i anticipated – popbytes over & out for tonight…xxoo



PS for the ultimate 80s liza treat – check out don’t drop bombs on itunes!

  • Robert in London

    Saw Liza at the London Coliseum on Monday – she was actually very funny… whilst wiping off sweat with a towel she asked members of the audience if her eyebrows were still on!… and huffing and puffing her way to the mic whilst pulling a chair behind her, she says “Remember how in the past I used to sit on a chair in the second act? …well it’s the first act now!” I’m not a fan or follower but did think she was very funny and sung her classics just as they sound in the films – remarkable!
