Bette Midler has never been one to shy away from speaking her mind, particularly when it comes to the new generation of divas (and diva wannabes).
So when an interviewer asked Bette's opinion on Ariana Grande's "Love Me Harder" video, Ms. Midler let loose as only she can:
"It's terrible!" Bette remarked. "It's always surprising to see someone like Ariana Grande with that silly high voice, slithering around on a couch, looking so ridiculous."
"Sex sells. Sex has always sold, [but] you don't have to make a whore of yourself to get ahead...I don't know where you're gonna go from all that sex in your twenties. I don't know how you sustain it."
Of course, this isn't the first time I female celeb has offered a harsh opinion about Ariana's overtly sexual image.
Back in September, Mayim Bialik slammed Ariana for promoting her album with skimpy attire and suggestive poses.
So is this a case of some older stars ganging up on an up-and-comer, or should Ari really cover up a bit?
We're not sure, but we know we'd feel more comfortable with her videos if she didn't insist on wearing cat ears and looking like she's 12.
