It's all love between these divas.
Looks like Bette Midler and Ariana Grande have buried the hatchet after Bette called Ariana's sexy image "ridiculous." Offering up the best pseudo-apology we could have ever hoped for, Bette, 68, tweeted:
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."— Bette Midler (@BetteMidler) November 26, 2014
The "screed" she references comes to us via The Telegraph. "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," she said in a recent interview. "I mean, it's silly beyond belief and I don't know who's telling her to do it."
Adding insult to insult, Bette continued to offer advice to young women breaking into the entertainment business with: "trust your talent. You don't have to make a whore out of yourself to get ahead."
And because we'll take any excuse to re-visit Bette's sexy mermaid days, there's more on that in the video above. You're welcome.
Bette has been hitting the publicity circuit hard while promoting her latest album, It's the Girls, which features covers of girl group classics. Listen to her take on TLC's "Waterfalls" here.
