All The Latest Barbra News!


First Clip from "The Guilt Trip" Released!

It's been a long time coming - but finally, here is a short teaser from Barbra's new movie "The Guilt Trip" which opens Christmas Day.

Barbra Sits Down With Katie Couric.

Barbra's interview with Katie Couric aired in the USA and Canada yesterday.

Barbra revealed some VERY exciting tidbits... including the fact that she will duet with son Jason Gould at the Brooklyn concerts next month. Who knew he could sing? She also revealed Jason will be a duet partner on her next album... an album of duets. She threw a few more names into the mix, of who she might like to sing with... Andrea Bocelli... John Legend.. Usher... Keith Urban to name a few. Babyface Edmonds will produce.

Barbra also revealed that she will perform "By The Way" from 'Lazy Afternoon' during the tour... along with some of the more "obscure" songs from her career... and songs that she has never before performed live.

There was a significant portion of the interview dedicated to "Heart Disease" - something Barbra has really thrown her energy into recently. Dr Noel Bairey Merz joined Barbra for part of the interview too. Definitely worth checking out the clips of them both on the Katie website (see link below).

For those of you who missed it, there is a page of video clips from the interview here:
