Streisand is one of the best-selling female artists of all time. Ever.
She's the current record holder for being the only act with No. 1 albums in each of the last six decades. Her most recent record, Encore: Movie Partners Sing Broadway, which she released in August, debuted at No. 1 (her eleventh), beating out Britney Spears and Flordia Georgia Line.
The legend is in the midst of a tour of sold-out stadium shows, in support of her album, as well as penning an autobiography, and she's opening up to W Magazine about it which you can read here. It includes her definition of what a strong woman is:
"Strong women are, simply, women with opinions. And they have always been treated with suspicion. Look at Hillary Clinton. And, sadly, the strong women usually don't get the guy at the end of the film. The last movie I directed was The Mirror Has Two Faces, and one of the reasons I took the job was because she got the guy at the end. I thought, Hmm, I've been alone too long. I think I'll do this movie, and then, in real life, I also got the guy at the end! I wound up getting married. In a sense, I believe you can manifest your reality."
You may recall Lady Gaga recently penned an essay for Harper's Bazaar about what it means to be a strong woman in 2016. Babs, paving the way since the start.
