a “where are they now?” moment in my career

I played the liquor aisle at the supermarket this weekend. No lie.

There are artistes who would be repulsed by this situation, but I am not one. It was not a bad gig at all, I swear. I played hard, and a couple friends actually stopped by to watch. It was fun to see them lurking in the aisle – supermarkets aren’t made for gawking.

I gave this little rap: “There are those who say Napster didn’t hurt the rock stars. But don’t believe them. Who am I? Why, I used to be known as… BARBRA STREISAND.”
