Driving under the influence is NEVER a good look!
If you mispronounce Barbra Streisand's name, she will PERSONALLY correct you.
So when Siri committed the capital offense, the icon took action! In a recent interview with NPR, the actress admitted she was frustrated that the computerized assistant couldn't quite get her name right.
She laughed and told host Scott Simon:
"She pronounces my name wrong."
You may be wondering how Siri could possibly f*ck that up, but the 74-year-old explained:
"Streisand with a soft S, like sand on the beach. I've been saying this for my whole career."
But was the legendary entertainer just going to allow this gross injustice to continue for all eternity?! Hell, no! In fact, Miz Streisand took her issue straight to the source!
"And so what did I do? I called the head of Apple, Tim Cook, and he delightfully agreed to have Siri change the pronunciation of my name, finally, with the next update on September 30th."
There you have it, Perezcious readers! You want results?! Give Tim a ring! LOLz!
Babs says she'll be "thrilled" if Mr. Cook actually makes the change, and we can't wait to see if this whole thing will be resolved next month!
