Ariana Responds To Bette's Shade
Ariana Grande responded to Bette's comments about her performance style.

Perhaps these two can get together for a little rendition of “You Don’t Own Me” sometime in the near future, after all.

If you’re just now getting wind of the mini-shade saga, the divine Miss Bette Midler made headlines following a Telegraph interview by calling out Ariana Grande for her sexy style, concluding “You don’t have to make a whore out of yourself to get ahead.” It was a rough assessment considering Bette’s more daring moments on stage, but it was all love when Miss Grande responded, pointing out on Twitter that Bette “was always a feminist who stood for women being able to do whatever the F they wanted without judgement!” — complete with a photo of Bette as a provocative mermaid, just to drive the point home…and a shout-out to First Wives Club.

Apparently Bette’s taken a good, hard look at herself in the mirror, because she’s just had a change of heart: “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,” she remarked on Twitter, thus closing the chapter on the criticism. And so, that’s that! We like it better when two talented divas get along, anyway — let’s hear it for the girls.

What do you think of Bette’s recent change of heart? Sound off in the comments below.
