She deals with political issues on her new album 'Walls'.
Barbra Streisand has just released a soaring new single paying tribute to President Donald Trump; it's called 'Don't Lie To Me' and it's a ruthless take down of his political regime. But that's only the tip of the iceberg with her newest album 'Walls', released this Fall.

The piano-led ballad is as unambiguous and unapologetic as Trump himself, but targets him for the blatant lies and deceit that have come from him since taking office with lines like 'Hard to believe the things you say' and 'You change the facts to justify'.

She has two clones from her 14-year-old Coton du Tulear Samantha.
It's not unusual for dog owners to stick with one breed of dog even after their pooch passes away, but Barbra Streisand wanted an exact copy when her Coton du Tulear Samantha died last year. Thus, she decided to have her cloned - twice! Although neither of them have the same personality.

Streisand's 34th studio album 'Partners' comes out on September 17th
Streisand recently sat down with Extra and recalled meeting the original king of rock 'n' roll for the very first time. "It was 1969 in Las Vegas. I think it was called the International Hotel, yep, and Elvis came. It was my opening night, but I was very nervous meeting him. I remember sitting there polishing my nails while he was talking to me. Can you imagine? When I think of it now, I think, 'How could you have been so stupid?'" she said.
She sang a number of songs from her new album with the help of the show's presenter Jimmy Fallon.
Ahead of the release of her 34th studio album Partners, singing legend Barbra Streisand was Jimmy Fallon’s guest on Monday evening’s ‘The Tonight Show’. The entire programme was given over to Streisand as Fallon got the opportunity to duet with her on a number of tracks that appear on the new record.
Barbra Streisand made an ultra-rare chat show appearance to promote Partners, a new album of duets, out Sept 16
Fallon quickly dispensed with his customary monologue at the start of the show, acknowledging that they were a “hot crowd” and finishing off by saying “I know you’re not here for me, you’re here for Barbra”. He then accompanied Streisand on a medley of three tracks from the new album, dressing up as Elvis for ‘Love Me Tender’, ‘The Voice’ judge Blake Shelton for ‘I’d Want It To Be You’ and Michael Bublé for ‘It Had To Be You’.
