"Ever since I can remember," Barbra Streisand told a crowd at Lincoln Center on Monday night, "people have been calling me bossy and opinionated." She continued: "Maybe that's because I am. Three cheers for bossy women!"
Hard to believe, but Jay Mohr's tweet rescinding the Second Amendment wasn't enough to clinch victory for gun control advocates in Wednesday's Senate vote on a measure to expand background checks on gun buyers. So Paul McCartney on Wednesday became a late addition to an anti-gun campaign spearheaded by crooner Tony Bennett. That wasn't enough either: Faster than you can say "Hello, Goodbye" the Senate rejected the new background checks late Wednesday afternoon.
They haven't hit the studio yet, but Tony Bennett says he "can't wait" to record his next album with Lady Gaga.

Last week, singer Tony Bennett told Congress the violence in the United States was like that in Germany prior to World War II, when "the Nazis came over, created tragic things and they had to be told off" ("Tony Bennett: Without gun control, U.S. may become 1940s Germany," Web, Wednesday).
