Talk about getting all verklempt!
How so? How about a little mutual fandemonium love fest with Lea Michele...
While the living legend and the young Ms. Michele didn't meet at Babs' MusiCares tribute on Friday night, it finally happened yesterday.
"After the Grammys as Ms. Michele stood in line with others waiting for her limousine, a woman approached her to congratulate and thanks her for her accomplished performance at the MusiCares event," a Streisand rep tells us. "It was, of course, Barbra Streisand, and you can read in Ms. Michele's instantaneous tweets her response to the experience and the beginning of a new friendship."
"As if this night at the Grammys wasn't amazing enough...waiting at the valet... Mrs Barbra Streisand came up to me. I can barely breathe," Michele tweeted. "She was so wonderful, kind and beyond nice. I can't believe I just met my idol. I feel so blessed and thankful right now..."
Of course, it was on Friday that Streisand was asked if she'd ever want to appear on Glee and she replied, "Not if I can help it." Since then she's been working hard to show she didn't mean to slight the show, whose stars are obvious fans of the legendary entertainer.
Kristin Chenoweth told us at Clive Davis' pre-Grammy party at the Beverly Hilton Hotel that she could see Streisand in the audience when she and Matthew Morrison performed at MusiCares. "She was smiling when we were singing—the whole time," Chenoweth said.
Morrison, on the other hand, said, "I didn't want to look at her. I couldn't."
Let the Streisand-should-guest-star-on-Glee campaign begin!
"She'd have to play something really good," Morrison said. "Maybe the lunch lady!"
Streisand in a hairnet serving mystery meat and mashed potatoes? Genius!
