Bette Midler To Ariana Grande: "Don't Make A Whore Out Of Yourself To Get Ahead"

Bette Midler has attacked Ariana Grande, claiming the young performer doesn't need to make a "whore" out of herself to make it in the entertainment industry.  

Midler, who is promoting her upcoming album "It's The Girls" featuring tracks from the clean-cut all-female bands of yesteryear like The Chiffons, The Ronettes and The Marvelettes feels young singers like Grande, 21, are depending too much on sex to sell their music.

"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… looking so ridiculous," Midler, 68, explained, noting: "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."

Midler revealed to The Telegraph singers now do "whatever you feel like," pointing out: "Apparently people really like to pretend they're having sex. They really like to slap each other's butts."

"I don't know what the end game is going to be. I don't know where you go from all that sex in your twenties. I don't know how you sustain it," the iconic singer added.

Midler's advice to other women trying to succeed in the music business is "trust your talent. You don't have to make a whore out of yourself to get ahead. You really don't."
