Has taken heat for the shape of her nose over the years such as from ''[[AmericanNewspapers New York Times]]'' critic John Simon, who has been waging war on the singer's nose since the 1970s. To her credit, Ms. Streisand refused to undergo cosmetic surgery early in her career, though admittedly not out of a high moral principle; she once famously credited her unique voice to a deviated septum. "If I ever had my nose fixed, it would ruin my career." Barbra's nose was referenced on ''Series/{{Glee}}'', where Kurt uses it to talk Rachel (who is a fan of Streisand) out of getting a nose job.

->''"I've been called many names like perfectionist, difficult and obsessive. I think it takes obsession, takes searching for the details for any artist to be good."''

She has had an astonishing ''thirty-two albums'' hit the Top Ten, nine of which went Number One, and is the only singer in history to have a Number One album in five consecutive decades, beginning with ''People'' in 1964 and, as of now, ending with ''Love Is The Answer'' in 2009. She has won two [[UsefulNotes/AcademyAward Academy Awards]], ten [[UsefulNotes/GrammyAward Grammys]], four Emmys, an honorary Tony[[note]]which makes her one of only thirteen people to have pulled off an "EGOT" -- winning an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar and a Tony -- though the honorary status of her Tony means that her position in that club is debatable[[/note]]. and a Peabody, was the first woman to win a Golden Globe for Best Director, was a Kennedy Center Honors honoree and won AFI's Lifetime Achievement Award in 2001.

----

!!This singer provides examples of:
* TheMusical: One of her specialties.
* SignatureStyle: She sings ballads with some mid-tempo, in a classic pop style with a heavy dash of New York accent. She plays characters who mix great ambition with great insecurity, who are willing to take great risks to get what they want. Material success comes to these characters more easily than interpersonal success (with others or themselves). It should also be mentioned that she does this very, ''very'' well.
* [[invoked]] StreisandEffect: {{Trope Namer|s}}. She sued a photographer in 2003 to get an image of her cliff-side home, which were taken as part of a project documenting coastal erosion, removed for violating her privacy. This attempt backfired massively, and a picture that barely received attention before the lawsuit came into popular interest. Previous to the lawsuit, the download count for the aforementioned image didn't surpass the single digits. That number grew by magnitudes when the lawsuit came to public attention. Her privacy was quite violated.

Her music is often referenced in media as being [[FanYay favored by gay men]] -- expect any man listening to or asking for a song by her to [[AmbiguouslyGay have their sexuality questioned]].
