That said, I loved her way before that - she's one of the only unapologetically female Jewish public figures I can think of who's achieved that level of success. Talk about your early role models ....

How do we decide whether we "like" a celebrity or not when we only know them from their own PR or a tabloid spin on their life?She's a great talent. The Voice of Her Generation. No doubt about it.I don't agree 100% with her politics. Ladies and professionals shouldn't tell hecklers to "Eff off!" at their concerts, which she did. I love her Malibu 'compound', although some of her money could have been used for more good than multiple houses filled with stuff.I can't even begin to understand how she and James Brolin became spouses. It's a mystery to me.I neither like nor dislike her. I have sometimes wanted to tell her to shut up. Well, when she wasn't singing.

One of the worst movies ever!WHAT?!?! I LOVE Yentl! I used to watch that movie repeatedly as a child. It's one of those things I'll stay home (or up ridiculously late) to watch if I catch it on the television.Barbra is, in my opinion, one of the best female role models a Jewish woman like myself could have. IMO, of course.
