Only Babs could call up Apple CEO Tim Cook and right this wrong.

As she gears up for her North American Tour of Encore: Movie Partner Sing Broadway, Barbra Streisand chatted with NPR about a most imperative pronunciation:

"[Siri] pronounces my name wrong. 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."

Such a #BabsMove.
