    After more than a decade of coasting on covers albums, Barbra has decided she's got SOMETHING TO SAY :disco:





    The single is a *touch* on the nose, but if the whole album is self-penned I'm hoping for at least one ode to the whole 'cloning her dead dog' controversy.

    On second listen I've come around to finding the single quite hilariously overwrought.

    "HOW DO YOU SLEEP?
    HOW DO YOU SLEEP?
    HOW DO YOU SLEEEEEEEEEP?"

    Why can’t she just give us the tragic disco epic we all want, nay, NEED?

    Why did Barbara take the cover shot for the album while down a well?

    You know Sheena Easton did 'Sugar Walls' about her minge? Perhaps the musty, dank, clammy crevices are symbolic of Barbra's walls.

    It puts the lotion on its skin; or else it gets the hose again.

    I can’t believe she completely inappropriately references No More Tears in the last chorus. :D

    To promote the album she's doing Carpool Karaoke for some reason.

    The official video of the #resistance is here. I'm sure it's already banned in Russia!!

    Of course she'd insist on doing her own driving. :D (Presumably the passenger seat was not on her good side :hitler:)

    Absolutely love this single - one of the best of the year for me. I only really know Guilty and Woman in Love but I’m up for a whole album of political Don’t Lie To Mes for sure

    I’m sure she will love James shouting her own songs over her voice! *gets nosebleed*

    I'm sure I saw her claim that Trump had made her fat.

    This has surprisingly been a huge flop for her in America. 12-87-OUT. I would've thought with all the publicity she'd get a decent boost. Maybe people just want standards from her these days.

    She must be flabbergasted at that chart run. Probably off cloning a third - or more likely tenth dog to cope, which is what I prefer to believe got her in this mess. The backlash is real.
