Bette Midler Calls Ariana Grande a Whore, then BacktracksIn November, lady icon Bette Midler gave an interview to the Telegraph where she discussed rising starlet (and Queen of the High Pony Tail) Ariana Grande, saying:
"It's always surprising to see someone like Ariana Grande with that silly high voice, a very wholesome voice, slithering around on a couch looking so ridiculous. I mean, it's silly beyond belief and I don't know who's telling her to do it. I wish they'd stop. I wish they'd stop. But it's not my business, I'm not her mother. Or her manager. Maybe they tell them that's what you've got to do. Sex sells. Sex has always sold. ...Trust your talent. You don't have to make a whore out of yourself to get ahead. You really don't."
Ariana, obviously, was none too pleased. She responded with a tweet that said, "Bette was always a feminist who stood for women being able to do whatever the F they wanted without judgement! not sure where that Bette went but i want that sexy mermaid back!!! always a fan no matter what my love."
Before the throngs of teenage fans could storm Midler's house and demand justice, Bette backtracked on her original statements, tweeting, "About my screed on @arianagrande, all I can say is, "Spoken like a reformed old whore! She does have a beautiful voice, on a couch or off."
Bloodshed was narrowly avoided. For now.
