Barbara Streisand, that Diva of classics such as Hello Dolly and The Way We Were, has sacrificed up to $10 million in fear of Y2k anarcy. According to today’s National Enquirer, Babs is so terrified of the pesky millennium bug problem that she has backed out of a New Year’s Eve concert to barricade herself in her home. The tinseltown megastar forfeited the Big Apple bash fearing riots, losing her multi-million pound wage packet for the night and turning her home into an armed fortress. She told a pal: "Who knows what can happen? The lights could go out, planes could crash, electricity and water supplies could fail, mobs may roam the streets burning and pillaging." And the difference from a normal New York night being…? The 56-year old icon is taking no chances and will have armed guards with automatic rifles and police dogs patrolling the grounds of her house. A source told the US tabloid: "All the bathtubs in her 12 bathrooms will be full of water. She even plans to have the pool filled with fresh water in case the supply is interrupted by computer problems." And Babs said she didn’t care if it made her the laughing stock of Hollywood – she needed more than her fine specimen of a husband, James, to protect her. She reportedly said: "James is a big, strong guy. But I want a whole team of hunks keeping me safe! Don’t we all, Babs.
