Bette Midler

So, Bette Midler isn't a fan of the rumoured Hocus Pocus remake and our inner 90's kids are crying uncontrollably.

Last month, we reported that everyone's favourite Halloween movie was getting a reboot – and while we can hardly contain our excitement, it looks like not everyone is too thrilled about the upcoming project.

Speaking to People at the Restoration Project's annual Hulaween party, the actress said:

“I know it’s cheap. It’s going to be cheap!”

Adding: “I’m not sure what they’re going to do with my character. My character is very, very broad and I don’t know who they’re going to find to play that.”

Bette played the role of Winifred Sanderson in the 1993 original, alongside co-stars Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy.

Mick Garris, a writer who worked on the original Disney Channel film previously said that re-casting the story's main characters would be a “big mistake” – but we're not holding our breath.

When asked by reporters have big the pay check would need to be before she would consider reprising the role, Better simply replied, “no!”

Brb – just mourning the loss of our treasured childhood memories. 



Bette Midler just won Halloween.

The actress gave us the ultimate throwback last night when she dressed up as her Hocus Pocus character, Winifred.

The 70-year-old was out to attend the Hulaween Party last night at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City.

Bette recently opened up about the 1993 flick, saying she's baffled as to why it didn't get a spin-off.

“For the life of me, I can’t understand why there’s not a sequel.

“You don’t get to see women doing slapstick too much, and in the movie you can see that we’re having a blast…All the shackles were off…and we were allowed to be as wild as we wanted to be. It was a perfect storm of fun.”

We don't understand either! A sequel NEEDS to be made.



We don't know what the Kardashians did to Bette Midler, but it seems that she has a serious grudge for the family.

Just a month after dissing Kim Kardashians naked seflie, she's now slagging off Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna's relationship.

Taking to Twitter, the singer posted: "Rob Kardashian's engaged to the MOTHER of the child of Kylie Jenner's boyfriend? They'll share a stepchild? Somebody send me a chart!"

The 70-year-old has a good point, though. When Rob and Blac get married the family ties are getting seriously twisted. 


Kim Kardashian sure knows how to get people talking. You might have thought the internet had reached its saturation point for naked photos of Kim after last year's Paper magazine shoot, but apparently not.

The famous mum caused a fair few celeb spats on Twitter this week after casually posting a year-old naked selfie of herself, with nothing but two black stripes covering her modesty (and bypassing Instagram and Twitter's no-nipple rule).

Chloe Moretz and Bette Middler were just two of the stars who hit back at Kim for showing too much skin online – but there were countless others; among them Abigail Breslin, Emily Ratajkowski and Ariel Winter; who spoke out in the KUWTK star's defence. 

As with any celebrity post worth its salt, Kim's selfie has quickly borne a heap of responses/pisstakes online. Here are a few of our favourites, from celebrities and regular joes alike (watch out for the Irish flag):

And this, which doesn't need any introduction:


Well done, internet. well done.



Bette Midler may have been struck with the wrath of an angry Kim Kardashian, but she has been responding to the drama in hilarious ways. 

It all began when Kim decided to post a nude selfie to Instagram and then responded to celebs who went online to criticise her. 

"Kim Kardashian tweeted a nude selfie today. If Kim wants us to see a part of her we've never seen, she's gonna have to swallow the camera," read the tweet by Bette to which Kim took offence. 

The 35-year-old reality star responded by jokingly asking Bette to send nudes before adding: "I really didn't want to bring up how how you sent me a gift awhile back trying to be a fake friend then come at me."

However, the 70-year-old could take it as she replied: "I never tried to fake friend you. Looks like anyone can take a selfie but not everyone can take a joke."

Yas, Bette! 

Fans have been delighting in the sassy responses of the Beaches  actress and were only ecstatic to see that she had uploaded her own version of a naked selfie to Twitter today. 

It may be totally photoshopped but the snap encourages people to put their naked selfies to work and donate to charity when posting one. 

Now that is the way to handle a controversy. 



While Kim Kardashian attempted to once again break the internet with a naked selfie on Instagram yesterday, she has managed to remain headline news by replying to comments from other celebrities about the provocative snap. 

In a rant not dissimilar to those of her famous hubby, she called out Bette Midler and actress Chloe Grace Moretz among others in a pretty cringe-inducing tirade. 

It all began when actress Bette decided to weigh in on the aforementioned pic. 

"Kim Kardashian tweeted a nude selfie today. If Kim wants us to see a part of her we've never seen, she's gonna have to swallow the camera," read a tweet by the 70-year-old yesterday. 

The 35-year-old star responded by jokingly asking the actress to send nudes before adding: "I really didn't want to bring up how how you sent me a gift awhile back trying to be a fake friend then come at me."

She also took a swipe at 19-year-old actress Chloe Grace Moretz, who earlier in the day had tweeted: "I truly hope you realise how important setting goals are for young women, teaching them we have so much more to offer than our bodies." 


Kim began her tirade in true Kanye form by boasting about transferring a million dollars into her bank account. 

See the rest of the rant below: 




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? 



Woah. We don’t know exactly what she did to get her so riled up, but veteran singer Bette Midler has slammed twenty-one-year-old star, Ariana Grande for her “silly high voice” and ridiculous music videos.

The sixty-eight-year-old Grammy- award winner spoke out in a revealing interview with The Telegraph about today’s young performers and it seems the Wind Beneath My Wings singer isn’t all too pleased with the way certain stars are presenting themselves in the media.

Taking aim at Ariana specifically, Bette said: “It’s terrible! It’s always surprising to see someone like Ariana Grande with that silly high voice, slithering around on a couch, looking so ridiculous. I wish they’d stop.”

Bette herself didn’t stop though, going on to say: “Trust your talent. You don’t have to make a who*e of yourself to get ahead. You really don’t.” We can't imagine what the Bang Bang singer will make of these harsh remarks this morning.

Despite having weighed in so heavily on the subject, the Oscar-nominated star then went on to say: “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.”

Is the beginning of the latest bizarre celeb feud?
