Barbra is Wrong
“She pronounces my name wrong,” Streisand said Saturday on NPR’s Weekend Edition. “With a soft S, like sand on the beach. I’ve been saying this for my whole career.”
Streisand, who is currently on tour for her new album, Encore: Movie Partners Sing Broadway, said that she took up the issue of her name with Apple CEO Tim Cook himself.
“And so what did I do? I called the head of Apple, Tim Cook, and he delightfully agreed to have Siri change the pronunciation of my name, finally, with the next update on Sept. 30,” said Streisand.
Nope. September 14.
