After Midler told the U.K.’s Telegraph that Grande looks “ridiculous” trying to seem sexy and that “you don’t have to make a whore out of yourself to get ahead,” the pop star had her own comments on Tuesday (Nov. 25). “Bette was always a feminist who stood for women being able to do whatever the F they wanted without judgement!” she tweeted, still noting that it’s “all love” between the two of them.
Well, Midler apparently agrees about the “all love” thing. She tweeted her version of a mea culpa later Tuesday:
Now Grande can safely go back to quoting First Wives Club every day.
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.”
