Ariana Grande has decided to take the high road after legendary singer Bette Midler slammed her yesterday.
The young singer decided to take to her Twitter account and voice her disappointment about Bette’s words: “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.”
She also posted a photo of Bette in her heyday with the caption: “all love here.”
The news of Ariana’s tweets comes not long after Joni Mitchell blasted Taylor Swift’s proposed role as her in the movie, Girls Like Us.
Thankfully, the younger women seem to have a stronger sense of female solidarity and are not being lowered to making bad comments in retaliation.
Legends like Bette and Joni, and even Aretha Franklin – who made a dig at Taylor recently – were probably heroes to Ariana and Taylor when they were kids. What a way to have your dreams dashed, eh?
