Happy Birthday Barbra

A colloquialism I created and often use “Pulling A Streisand”: being exclusive with your time, energy, social circle and affairs, because you’ve already cemented your legendary status, à la Streisand. “She needs to pull a Streisand, she doesn’t need them.” Social media distorts reality, sometimes icons forget there’s levels to this shit. Ignore the numbers, the work speaks for itself. You know how many of the greats I don’t follow? I don’t need to, they’re woven into the tapestry of culture, they have nothing to prove. If instagram disappeared they’d still be relevant. We’re mostly here for aesthetics, duh. What’s your favorite Barbra Streisand piece? Via: Harper’s Bazaar
