Hello in There (Bette Midler)
I was once hired by Atlantic Records to photograph Bette Midler doing a radio interview at the studio. I arrived there on time, only to be met with disbelief. No one had told Ms. Midler that a photographer was coming. Her hair was up, and she was in a pink button-down shirt. She had glasses. She was absolutely lovely and gracious about it all, and certainly looked good enough to have her picture taken doing an interview, but she was also very, VERY clear. It was just NOT going to happen. Basically, BETTE MIDLER wasn't there, only the lovely and talented Bette Midler, who said she would absolutely make sure I got paid anyway. And I did. But there are no pictures to go along with this post.
