Liberace speaks out in lost interview: “I feel that I have a perfect right to spend my money the way I damn please”
Boy, that Liberace was not without opinions.
PBS Digital Studios’ Blank on Blank has released a “lost” interview with the iconic entertainer who was portrayed so well by Michael Douglas in Behind the Candelabra.
In this 1968 interview with KTRH Houston, he talks about the “peacocking” of men’s fashion, hard work, his divine calling and what he’d do if he were president.
“Anyone that dares begrudge what I have today just better get off their duff and do something about it – do something for themselves as well as their country,” he says. “I feel that I have a perfect right to spend my money the way I damn please.”
Well, okay then!
