Barbra Streisand admitted she’s a huge fan of Beyonce and “The Crown”, as she dished on all of her favourite things while chatting with Ellen DeGeneres on Tuesday.
The 75-year-old, who has been busy promoting her Netflix special “The Music…The Mem’ries…The Magic!”, said, when asked about her favourite shows: “‘Breaking Bad’. ‘The Crown’ was great. I just haven’t had time, but over this holiday I’m taking time to binge-watch.”
Never one to hold her tongue, DeGeneres even asked the superstar what her favourite swear word was, to which Streisand seemingly mouthed “F***!”
Streisand also spoke about being incredibly shy, with DeGeneres, 59, quizzing her: “It’s not what you love to do [performing]. You just happen to be brilliantly talented so you’re in front of people all the time. Why did you want to do the Netflix special?”
The Oscar-winning star replied, “I think it’s good to document the work, since it takes about three months to prepare a show, why not document it? Even if I didn’t release it.
“What’s wonderful is, I don’t enjoy performing, okay? I always have a bit of stage fright and it’s not a comfortable feeling. So, this is great because Netflix, for $10 a month, the whole family could see any show, and I don’t have to perform it.”
Streisand was also asked about whether her extreme shyness means she’s ready to retire. However, the hitmaker insisted that this isn’t necessarily the case.
“I’m not retiring because I still want to direct movies. That’s what I love and I still like to make records.”
