Bette Midler is 68, so she may not be able to remember the shit she was doing on stage in the 70s without her medication, but she’s lucid enough to call Ariana Grande a whore I guess.
Midler did an interview with The Telegraph, grousing about the state of the music biz. She’s particularly disgusted with 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.” Midler goes on, “… Looking so ridiculous. I mean it’s silly beyond belief and I don’t know who’s telling her to do it.” And then the punch. In giving advice to aspiring singers, Midler says, “Trust your talent. You don’t have to make a whore out of yourself to get ahead.”
I am so sick of the whoreshaming that goes on in the media. It’s 2014, women should be free to whore lol jk this is just another time when a woman tears another woman down. Get it together, ladies. Also, this post includes pictures of Ariana Grande not whoring.
