I Am Unexpectedly Fond of Barry Manilow.

by Isabel

From Barry Manilow’s website, re: his choice not to be interviewed by anti-choice Elizabeth Hasselback on The View:

Hey guys,

I wanted to let you know that I will no longer be on The View tomorrow as scheduled. I had made a request that I be interviewed by Joy, Barbara or Whoopi, but not Elisabeth Hasselback. Unfortunately, the show was not willing to accommodate this simple request so I bowed out.

It’s really too bad because I’ve always been a big supporter of the show, but I cannot compromise my beliefs. The good news is that I will be on a whole slew of other shows promoting the new album so I hope you can catch me on those.


Awww, I never knew that he was pro-choice!

Hat tip, Ann, Feministing.

One thought on “I Am Unexpectedly Fond of Barry Manilow.

  1. It should be noted that he’s appeared twice on “The View” in the past – both times with Hasselback present.

    So if he’s got an ethical problem to sharing a stage with the avowed right-winger (and I certainly can’t say I blame him ::lol:: ) then it is one that has developed quite recently – the last time he was on “The View” was less than a year ago.
