Transcript for Bette Midler featured in Variety magazine's 'Power of Women' issue
I know. Never hard to listen to Lara do "Pop news." You nailed it. Good morning to you and to you. We begin with Bette midler who earned the cover of "Variety's" power issue. She's been a sure bet in Hollywood for five decades now. Midler had a production company long before Reese Witherspoon was born paving the way for women in the industry to have more control of their careers. At pun point she was the highest paid actress in the biz but she says she's always considered equality her biggest goal. You can read more of her interview in the new issue of "Variety." It's a great read. Very exciting. She's so honest. She talks about the oscars and what she wore this year. It's a must read. It's very funny. Also in "Pop news" this morning, they may not be the new kid in town any more but the eagles are still selling out shows. This time should be no different. The iconic rock band has just announced they'll perform their classic 1976 album "Hotel California," the album in its entirety for the first time ever. The show is called an evening with the eagles, two nights only at the mgm hotel in Las Vegas. Don Henley, Joe Walsh Timothy B. Schmitt and Vince gill will round out the band. Did you know "Hotel California" is the third largest selling album of all time. Hits like "Life in the fast lane," "New kid in town" and this one, "Hotel California." The two-day moral mans of this once in a lifetime show takes place in September. After that the band will likely take it easy. Ba-dum-dum. I saw what you did there. Yeah. Finally, robin Roberts, a new way to fight off bug bites that doesn't involve spray chemicals. Why me? You liked my joke. So that means I go with you. Whoever is the nicest I then talk to. All right, so this is a new way to fight off bug bites without chemicals, it's a type of electronic music called dubstep like this song by skrillex. ������ wait for it. Oh, yes, it's slow. Can you dig? This is real -- this is not an April fools' joke. It's called "Scary monsters and nice sprites" and cited in the study. High and low frequencies and disrupts the brain function of the little blood suckers delaying attacks, even disrupting their mating. I can agree with that. Not firsthand, I'm just thinking. We reached out actually to skrillex to see what he thought of the news about how his music which I can't stop hearing is stopping mcs in their tracks. Listen up. I thought it was a crazy April fools' joke at first. My friends were texting me and I didn't even believe them. My dad even texted me so come to find out it's true. It's kind of crazy, funny, sorry, mosquitoes. Sorry, mosquitoes. Researchers believe that this could provide new avenues for music-based protection from bites and more importantly mosquito-borne diseases so have this on repeat at your next barbecue. Sounds fun. Sounds like a good time. How long will you be staying
