    Bette Midler Apologizes to Ariana Grande for 'Whore' Tweet : People.com

    Bette Midler Apologizes to Ariana Grande for 'Whore' Comment

    Looks like Ariana Grande and Bette Midler have called a Thanksgiving truce.

    Following Midler's interview with the U.K. Telegraph on Monday Ė in which the 68-year-old Divine Miss M chided the 21-year-old pop star for being too sexual and said, "You don't have to make a whore out of yourself to get ahead" Ė she apologized in vintage Midler style.

    "About my screed on @ArianaGrande, all I can say is, 'Spoken like a reformed old whore!'" Midler Tweeted. "She does have a beautiful voice, on a couch or off."

    Midler's mea culpa follows a Twitter blitz from Grande, in which she stated Midler had always been a feminist "who stood for women being able to do whatever the F they wanted without judgment! Not sure where that Bette went but I want that sexy mermaid back," Grande stated alongside a pic she posted of Midler as a mermaid.

    On Tuesday, Grande e-hugged Midler, posting two Tweets.

    "all love here," she Tweeted, followed by, "and I will still quote first wives club every single day of my life lmao."

    I love her even if this is a bit hypocritical. I heard her version of TLC's Waterfall on some late night show. Hated it. HATE HATE HATED it. It was the first time I ever stopped to listen to the lyrics though.

    A*O, you're one of my favorites, but I have to agree to disagree here. Bette can definitely sing. She might not be opera or even Celine Dion (snicker) but Bettech can fuckin' SING.
    And yes, I adore the Divine Miss M, but I'm sure you caught that.

    I loved Bette in Ruthless People, funny, funny movie. And nice apology to, and gracious reply by, Ariana G., other bickering celebs should take note.

    You were never more shocked and offended than by a few 'f' words and some semi dirty Sophie Tucker jokes???

    I sympathize though, it must be hard sitting through a whole concert with that stick up your ass.

    I don't own any Bette Midler albums or movies. But she is a very well-known celeb, so it's relatively easy to keep track of what she's about.

    And this may be the first time that I heard about someone watching a concert and being more offended than their parents. Usually, it's the other way around.

    exactly. there was always an element of comedy, of not taking herself seriously, that gave the sexual elements in her performances a sense of strength and of her being in control, not the sexpot who thinks her fans have to want to fuck her in order for her to be successful.

    and she sang a funny/sad duet with tom waits that, when you listen to it, makes you wish they'd gotten married.

    Y'all know TLC stole Waterfalls from Paul McCartney, though, right?
