Bette Midler Apologizes for Slamming Ariana Grande

Bette Midler apologized recently to Ariana Grande for calling her a “whore”. Bette’s initial comment was:

“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. Trust your talent. You don’t have to make a whore out of yourself to get ahead. You really don’t.”

Ariana responded by saying:

“Bette was always a feminist who stood for women being able to do whatever the F they wanted without judgment! I’m not sure where that Bette went but I want that sexy mermaid back!!! always a fan no matter what my love.”

But Bette apologized saying:

“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 recently appeared on Jimmy Fallon and at the SiriusXM studios. She also met the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge at the Royal Variety performance. Bette’s tour starts May 2015.
