Ariana Grande Responds To Bette Midler’s Dragging

She tells The Telegraph:

“It’s terrible! 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. 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.

Whatever strictures there were have fallen apart. And now it’s whatever you feel like doing you can do. I mean, apparently people really like to pretend they’re having sex. They really like to slap each other’s butts. I mean, don’t ask me. It’s beyond me. I’m too old. I don’t know what the end game is going to be. I don’t know where you go from all that sex in your twenties. I don’t know how you sustain it.” Her advice? “trust your talent. You don’t have to make a whore out of yourself to get ahead. You really don’t.”

Ari caught wind of the story and responded on Twitter (two of the Tweets are since deleted):

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




Women should feel free to express themselves however they want - not be labeled a whore for being confident in their own skin.

Team Bette or Team Ariana?
