    I wouldn't say they "stole it." The only lyrics that are the same are "don't go chasing waterfalls" and the word "lake". The rest of the lyrics and the sound of the songs are totally different and the message of the songs are obviously not similar.

    Am I the only one who has no clue what "don't go chasing waterfalls" is supposed to mean? They mostly stay put (in the short term at least) so I'm not sure why one would even need to chase them.

    To me she was kind of a singing Joan Rivers - bawdy, loud, hilarious and didn't GAF. That was a long time ago, before Wind Between My Cheeks and the other cheeseball crap she produced in later years.

    I hated Wind Beneath My Wings, Beaches was not my cup of tea. Cheeseball indeed. I dug the bawdy bathhouse persona.

    I love Bette, and have since I was about 10 or so, which is when I discovered she existed. I first saw her in the movie Ruthless People (which was on LOGO last night, and I totally watched it). I remember my mom loving her, because of the movie and the song The Rose. I loved Beaches when it came out, because I was a hormonal 12yo girl, and was all about the BFF thing. I also bought the soundtrack when I was 12, because I thought the song Otto Titsling, was the best thing EVAH (Wind Beneath My Wings sucked balls though).

    To get slightly back on topic. I wish she didn't apologize, because she didn't have anything to apologize for. She didn't call Ariana a whore, just ridiculous (which her shtick IS ridiculous).

    I'm glad she did apologize since she did target just one person. Her points are valid and would have been better received if she talked about the current generation as a whole, rather than targeting one young girl.
