Reader feedback: Rapper's paradise only

Movie Review, By Saša Petrášová, April 14 - 20, Vol 9, No 14

Your interpretation of Ms. Streisand's remarks could not have been more "off the mark" than they were. A quick search of statements by Barbra Streisand in the past few months would bring up several articles where she went of record as stating that she saw 8 mile and really related to elements of the story (having grown up poor as a child herself) and found Eminem's own personal story "compelling".

In fact, I am certain that she was elated that Eminem won [the Oscar for best song] and would have preferred to give him the award directly. I would have thought that her obvious "Woo!" after reading his name would have made it obvious that she was happy about the win. Your write up seems a classic case of someone seeing what they want to see and not what really is.
