Barbra Streisand Asks Apple to Change Siri's Pronunciation of Her Name

Barbra Streisand isn’t a big fan of how Siri says her name.

In fact, the 72-year-old entertainer actually called up Apple to have them change it to the correct pronunciation.

“She pronounces my name wrong,” Babs told NPR. “Streisand with a soft S, like sand on the beach. I’ve been saying this for my whole career. And so what did I do? I called the head of Apple, Tim Cook, and he delightfully agreed to have Siri change the pronunciation of my name, finally, with the next update on Sep. 30.”

She added, “So let’s see if that happens because I will be thrilled.”
