Barbra Streisand Says Jackie Kennedy Once Offered Edit Her Memoir — But the Singer Never Wrote One

芭芭拉·史翠珊 and iconic former First Lady 杰奎琳·肯尼迪 almost worked together.

在她出现在 吉米法伦主演的今夜秀, 史翠珊, 79, revealed that back in 1984, Kennedy offered to edit the singer’s memoir, should she ever write one — but Streisand never did.

We had tea, and she was just so lovely,” Streisand recalled. 然而, the singer said shewasn’t readyto get serious about writing a book because of her hectic work schedule.

I was always busy doing something else, so I would write in the journals, then go on to something else,” 她解释说.

The former First Lady had worked as an editor at Viking Press and then at Doubleday for the remainder of her life. 在她的职业生涯中, she edited a few celebrity client books including Michael Jackson’s Moonwalk and Diana Vreeland’s Allure.

While Streisand has yet to release a memoir, she said she’s been working on a potential book for several decades.

“在 1999, I really started writing,” 她说. “And then other things, concerts and movies or whatever … 然后在 2008, 一世 真的 started writing.

Streisand teased that the book could be coming as soon asnext year.

The pandemic helped me finish the book, or I’m almost finished,” 她说. “I’ve written 824 页, and I still have the little epilogue to do.

The number of pages has a special significance to the singer, thus leading her to believe her book is complete.

My favorite number — because I was born on the 24th—is 24. This book is now 824 页,” Streisand said.
