Bette Middler Critical of Ariana Grande’s Sexiness

Bette Middler doesn’t understand why Ariana Grande has to make a whorish spectacle of herself. In an interview with The Telegraph, Middler talks about the “pornification of pop music.” Specifically, Ariana Grande and her whorishness. That whore!

“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.”

Those pearls are clutched so tight right now.

“Well whatever strictures there were have fallen apart. And now it’s whatever you feel like doing you can do. I mean, apparently people really like to pretend they’re having sex. They really like to slap each other’s butts.” She slaps her own butt. “I mean, don’t ask me. It’s beyond me. I’m too old. 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.”

Like sex ed has always taught me, butt slapping is a gateway act to crying over your wart-infested genitals hoping your tears are a cure.

If she had any advice for a young woman wanting to break in to showbusiness today, it would be this: “trust your talent. You don’t have to make a whore out of yourself to get ahead. You really don’t.”

Young women wanting to break into showbusiness today, do not listen to Bette Middler. This is a losing strategy. There are only a handful of women right now surviving on talent alone. Taylor Swift and Jennifer Lopez. And Jennifer Lopez only because even when she tries to be sexy, she’s decidedly not.
