Bette Midler Told Ariana Grande Not To Whore Herself

Posted by Photo Boy

Ariana Grande looks like a child, but in reality she’s a grown woman who loves to dress like a prostitute and perform sultry dances to the terrible, terrible music she makes. To lecherous old men, this type of thing is irresistible. To idiotic young girls, it’s a career aspiration. To the dying music industry, it’s a golden goose that lays a million other golden geese a day. So I’m not really sure why Bette Midler, a veteran of the music and entertainment industries, can’t grasp why everyone involved in the creation of an Ariana Grande won’t stop using her butt like an ATM. Via Jezebel:

“It’s terrible! It’s always surprising to see someone like Ariana Grande with that silly high voice, a very wholesome voice, slithering around on a couch,” – here, she does some slithering herself – “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…” Trust your talent,” Midler said of young stars like Grande. “You don’t have to make a whore out of yourself to get ahead. You really don’t.”

By the way, this off-the-cuff remark about the state of the industry happened to come in the interview Bette did with The Telegraph which states in the second paragraph that she’s promoting her first UK tour in 35 years! She’s also got a new album out and if you’re interested in buying tickets to see one of her shows at a venue like The Smoothie King Center in New Orleans, The Pepsi Center in Denver, or The Toyota Center in Houston, check our her website! And remember kids, don’t ever whore yourself out to get ahead unless that involves shitting on someone who’s currently doing it way better than you are without having to pretend it’s not all about moving more units. Yes, I know they’re child butt uni– yeah, I guess I did just sort-of defend Ariana Gran– GODDAMN YOU, MIDLER, YOU WON’T GET AWAY WITH THIS!!
