The Friday Fierceness: Liza With a Z!

Shut up. I love her. I love her spider lashes and her sequined pantsuits and her gay husbands and her Fosse numbers and jazz hands (GOD do I love her jazz hands) and her total unwillingness to take herself seriously and become one of those terminally boring society matrons, so today (and every day) all our fierceness belong to Liza.

Now THAT’S a pant suit

I’m fine, and my hips are fine. My false knee is fine. My false hips are fine. Everything’s cooking.

Is she a Blood or a Crip?

I believe all drunks go to heaven, because they’ve been through hell on Earth.

How to do Halston.

Dream on it. Let your mind take you to places you would like to go, and then think about it and plan it and celebrate the possibilities. And don’t listen to anyone who doesn’t know how to dream.

Life is a Cabaret

Reality is something you rise above.

Yes, but is it short ENOUGH?

What I’m saying is that I tried very hard to give them my reality and my reality is kind of interesting.

    Have you seen her in that 80’s classic Shelly Duvall’s Faerie Tale Theater? She is the princess in ‘The Princess and the Pea’. It ROCKS.

    Yes! I thought I was the only one!

    I’ve always thought she was fab but what cemented her fierceness for me was her role on Arrested Development as Lucille 2. My mind was just blown by how awesome and hilarious she was. I agree–she doesn’t take herself seriously and I think she could teach most of Hollywood a lesson. Great choice!

    How could you not love someone with those eyes. That is one old, beautiful soul in there. Also — three words: sequined halter jumpsuit. Sold!

    I love her! Especially in Cabaret, it’s just fantastic.

    She’s so obviously fierce that I always thought she was badly cast as Sally Bowles. Sally was trying to sleep her way up because she wasn’t actually talented. Whereas everytime Liza walks onto the Cabaret stage it becomes well-nigh impossible to look away…

    Oh how I love sequins! I need a size 18 of every single outfit she is wearing in this post.

    I absolutely love Liza! She looks like she’s having such a wonderful time when she performs. I love when she was on the Muppet Show performing At the Copa.
