Liza on Love and David Gest

Liza Minnelli is heading back to Broadway for the first time in 10 years and in a promotional interview lets slip what it was like to be married, briefly, to her former producer David Gest. “I don’t remember those shows well, because it was so complicated,” she said. I wasn’t in charge of anything. I was being shoved around a lot. … I didn’t have much say,” she told Charles Isherwood of the New York Times. “I don’t have somebody telling me, ‘Be quiet.’ None of that in my life anymore. It’s just so wonderful to not be tied down for the first time.” As for her state of mind, “I have never felt better in my life. I feel free. I feel happy. I feel completely solid. Calmer and more focused. I understand how intelligent I am.”
