Lea Michele Throwing Barbra Streisand’s 70th Birthday PartyFriday, April 20, 2012
Lea Michele is planning a very special birthday party this weekend, a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. And she’s bringing boyfriend Cory Monteith to the bash!
Lea Michele may love one person even more than her boyfriend Cory Monteith.
“Lea is obsessed with Barbra Streisand,” a friend of Lea’s tells HollywoodLife.com. And this year, Lea’s throwing a very special birthday bash for her idol turning 70.
“She has always celebrated Barbara’s birthday, but this year is extra special because Barbara turns 70,” the sources tells us.
Just like her Glee alter-ego, Lea absolutely adores the singer-actress and she, Cory and friends will celebrate everything Barbra has done over her storied career.
“Basically, Lea and Cory and her friends will watch their favorite Barbra Streisand movies and Lea will of course sing her songs,” the insider says.
And what will Lea be wishing for this April 24, the day of Bab’s birth?
“One of Lea’s biggest dreams is to star in a remake of Funny Girl, which was Barbra’s first movie role,” Lea’s friend reveals to HollywoodLife.com.
I’m sure Lea wouldn’t mind a guest-appearance by the legend herself on Glee. After having Idina Menzel play her mom, Babs would definitely be the icing on the cake for Lea’s Rachel Berry.
“In fact, one of Lea’s other biggest dreams is to have Barbara actually be on Glee where the two could perform the song ‘Evergreen’ together,” the source tells us.
We know they would both look GORGEOUS singing together!
