Facing the camera, she said: “Substance abuse and its evil effects have reached catastrophic levels in our community. To effectively impact this plague, the appetite for drugs must be reduced through education. Success requires that we start at the youngest possible age. Programs like SANE in our elementary schools hold the key. Let us not forget that the children of today are the leaders of tomorrow.”

Streisand interviewed by Couric
January 20, 1993
NBC

Covering the Clinton Inaugural festivities, Katie Couric interviewed Barbra Streisand at the Arkansas Ball.

 

Katie: Why did you come by this particular ball?

Streisand: (laughs) Because I think President Clinton is coming here [...] It's not like what I expected. You know, like when you saw President Kennedy and Jacqueline Kennedy? It was in a big hallway. I don't know, it's not what I imagined.

Katie: Why was it so important for you and other people from Hollywood to attend this inauguration?

Streisand: Me and people like me have been very disastified with the government for the last 12 years. I feel that people can really make a difference. So my foundation supported a lot of Get Out The Vote, the women's vote—after all, we're 52 percent of the population and we're not represented in government. And I think people really realize that they can make a difference, that one vote counts, you know? So we felt impowered. And people of color, and Jewish people, and women ... we elected this man! He is of the people. We chose him.

Katie: [...] Were you terrified to sing in front of that many people [at the Inaugural Gala]?

Streisand: I did it the night before for the people who came for free. They just had to bring a bag of groceries for the homeless, which I thought was lovely. Yeah, I haven't sung for 18,000 people since McGovern, 1972. But I must say the people are wonderful. They're yelling out things from the stands, “Barbra, you're like butter,” and it was very nice to feel them, you know? And I just feel so celebratory that we have this new and vibrant, young leadership that this country really needs. I wanted to feel a part of history.

In discussing the new album, Barbra details how and why she met Jim Brolin, their relationship and personal growth together. “He's the yin to my yang, or I'm the yang to his yin (laughs).” Asked about how the press treats her today, Barbra admits candidly and bluntly: “I think they suck. I don't care how they treat me now,” and follows with an explanation of her website's Truth Alert — “We like to set the record straight.” On daily stock market trading, she says enthusiastically, “It's an interesting psychological game...involving patience, instinct, drama...like gambling in a casino only I'm in my bathrobe.”

“People have heard about them. And there's some like ‘Glocca Mora’ on YouTube, I guess. So, you know, I figured why not release them since people know about them?”

 

On why she didn't release the songs in the first place, Streisand said, “I was always more finicky earlier on. If I didn't like one note I didn't release something, but they're pretty good.

 

“Whatever flaws I think they have ... I'm just leaving them there. I'm less demanding now, more forgiving of myself. It's my work and I wanted to share it with the public.”

 

Barbra joked during the call-in, “How 'bout I don't even have a copy? I worked on this album for a long time, I don't even have a copy. Can I buy one?”

 

When Richard Jay-Alexander confessed he bought ten CDs, Barbra said with a laugh, “No! I'm only gonna buy one, Richard.”

 

Finally, before she hung up, Barbra revealed, “Aren't the vaults interesting? They're humongous. All these side passages filled with these things. There's probably a volume 2 to be had, too, because I have enough songs for volume 2, probably three.”
