Ariana Grande Responds To Bette Midler's Diss

Earlier this week Bette Midler called out young singers in an interview with the Telegraph. "It’s always surprising to see someone like Ariana Grande with that silly high voice, a very wholesome voice, slithering around on a couch looking so ridiculous," she said. "I mean, it’s silly beyond belief and I don’t know who’s telling her to do it."

Midler suggested that perhaps Grande had people behind her telling her how to act. "I wish they’d stop. But it’s not my business, I’m not her mother. Or her manager," said the veteran singer.

In response, Grande took to Twitter on Tuesday: "Bette was always a feminist who stood for women being able to do whatever the F they wanted without judgement! Not sure where that Bette went but I want that sexy mermaid back!!! always a fan no matter what my love."

And here's what Midler had to say about that:
