I always wondered what Barbra Streisand's house in Malibu looked like. Barbra is suing the California Coastal Records Project for $50,000,000 for taking this picture. If you look closely you can see her stretched out nude next the pool. Then again maybe you don't want to see that. Just kidding.
What invasion of her right to privacy? I would love to be on that jury that takes this case. The coastline project is for research and enforcement purposes not to spy on movie stars' private lives. The California Coastal Records Project, from what I read, is an environmental group that is working to protect the California coastline. Barbra funded the Barbra Streisand Chair for Enivironmental Studies at Princeton. She blasts President Bush almost every day about his environmental policy. Maybe she doesn't want the California coastline near her house to be protected so she can blame President Bush for that too. BTW she does not own that beach in front of her property. The people of California do and there is a sizeable squabble going on in Malibu about providing access to the coastline. The rich, like Streisand, do not want people to be able to walk the beaches near their houses even though it belongs to the people.
Maybe Barbra is upset at the Coastline Project people because she is afraid that someone that has read her wacko request that everyone should be environmentally responsible might see this palace by the sea . I can't find her request. The only reference I can find to it is here. Her website deleted all references to it along with her letters opposing to the war and supporting Saddam Hussein. In response to a reporter's question about her request for enivironmental responsibility she said that the request didn't apply to her. One look at that mansion tells where she really stands on the environment. How many acres of rain forest went into that baby? That house, when the A/C is going full blast, is probably responsible for half the brown outs in California.
Barbra is still my favorite female singer. She is talented. I just have to put all of her political BS out of my mind. It is hard to do. Very hard.
