Bette Midler: Just A Working Class Girl Living Out Her Fantasies

Nick Kent, New Musical Express, 17 February 1973

BETTE MIDLER, the Divine Miss Bette Midler, is a star. Ahmet Ertegun, man of wealth and taste, and head of Atlantic Records, believes it; Aaron Russo, entrepreneur and Miss Midler's manager, believes it; the homosexual clientele of the Continental Baths in New York believe it. And, above all, Bette Midler herself believes it.
