Loving this group of honorees! Meryl Streep, one of my greatest guilty pleasures Neil Diamond, Broadway legend Barbara Cook, cellist Yo-Yo Ma, saxophonist Henry Rollins.
Kennedy Center Honors
Awwwww, Meryl's statement:
Going to be a sweet few months for Streep, methinks. The airing of this and release of Iron Lady within a few days of each other ... then the Oscar for the latter a couple of months later.The actress said she is deeply honored by the Kennedy Center's nod and wishes her parents were alive to see it.
"All that education, allowance, tuition, voice lessons, summer jobs, scholarship application deadlines and loving care and discipline — all that they gave me, bore fruit in a way they never dreamed," she said in a statement.
Diamond wrote "Sweet Caroline" for Caroline Kennedy? I never knew that!
