Ariana Grande Responds to Those Bette Midler Comments…

On Monday, in an interview with the U.K.’s Telegraph, Midler noted, “You don’t have to make a whore out of yourself to get ahead” and “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.”
