For some reason nowadays the older divas like to come for the rising singers. A few years ago it was Aretha Franklin and Etta James coming for Beyonce. Now we have Bette Midler gunning after Ariana Grande. It’s one thing to throw a little shade, but it reaches another level when you just have no filter.
Recently, Midler had an opportunity to share her thoughts on Ariana Grande and trust she gave it like a shot straight up with no chaser.
“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. I mean it’s silly beyond belief and I don’t know who’s telling her to do it. I wish they’d stop. But it’s not my business, I’m not her mother. Or her manager. Maybe they tell them that’s what you’ve got to do. Sex sells. Sex has always sold.”
Later on she offered up advice to other rising singers
“Trust your talent. You don’t have to make a whore out of yourself to get ahead.”
Who really saw any of this coming? Certainly, not us. Hopefully someday soon these older divas can just mentor these ladies oppose to tearing them down at first glance.
