Barbra Streisand Cloned Her Dead Dog… Twice
Now that’s love
If you've been wondering what Barbra Streisand has been up to lately, well, she's living her best Black Mirror life. The legendary singer and actor recently told Variety that her two dogs, Miss Violet and Miss Scarlett, are clones of her late dog, Samatha, who died last year. Uh, so there's that.
“They have different personalities,” Streisand said. “I’m waiting for them to get older so I can see if they have her [Samantha’s] brown eyes and seriousness.”
You may have questions regarding this news: How did she do it? How much did the process cost? Where did she do it? What does this mean for all of humanity? While there was no word on how, how much, and where the process went down, she did reveal that she had cells taken from Samantha's mouth and stomach before she died. Casual!
But not all of Streisand's pets are clones. Her third dog, named Miss Fanny after her character in Funny Girl, is a "distant cousin" of Samantha’s, who she adopted from a breeder. And though the process is weird AF, we gotta admit, the puppers are pretty cute.
