Liza Minnelli says everything by saying nothing

By Greg Hernandez

HollywoodNews.com: When I think about why I love Liza Minnelli, it’s because of her strength as a performer in her live stage shows and in films including Cabaret, New York, New York, and The Sterile Cuckoo.

But when I watched Liza being interviewed on Larry King Live last week, I was struck by her ability to say nothing.

I wondered if Larry was off his game at first but soon realized that Liza is a far better performer than she is an interesting or introspective interview.

This new cover story in the new issue of “The Advocate” is further proof, in my opinion.

Some examples include when she was asked about the affinity she and her mother, Judy Garland, had for gay men. Both married at least one gay man. Liza at first said she had to go to the john. Then she said, “I haven’t really thought about it.” And finally she tells the writer she’s glad he said it and brought it out there but: “Honey, I wish I had more to say about it, but I don’t.”

It is perhaps most disappointing that Liza apparently has no idea why the gays are so devoted to her: “I don’t know what gay people see in my music. I really haven’t thought about it. I think they see what everyone else sees in my music.”
