I have no idea who's running Barbra Streisand's instagram but I would like to hug them. Is Streisand herself responsible for it? A terrified but grateful intern? It doesn't really matter because any which way, Barbra Streisand's instagram is a perfect living tribute to Barbra Streisand. If you needed a reminder of who had the diva thing down long before Beyonce, look no further than Babs.
In case you've missed it in the month since its launch, Streisand's instagram is mainly filled with other famous people talking about how Barbra Streisand is more famous and more talented than them. And it's great. Who has earned the right to a self-cultivated tribute to themselves, if not the former Fanny Brice? She's got an album to promote, after all, and what better way to do that than to take it upon yourself to remind the world that you've been kicking ass in this business for half a century? Barbra Streisand's instagram is a frothy divatastic wonder and I love every second of it.Take a walk with me, friends, through the history of famous people heaping admiration on Barbra Streisand — as shared by Barbra Streisand. Think of this every time someone subtweet chastises you for retweeting twitter praise. We can all learn from Barbra Streisand, even if none of us can ever be Barbra Streisand.
