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.
