Ariana Grande is taking to Twitter to address Bette Midler's recent comments. The pop star said on Twitter "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."

This is all in response to Bette's comments in a recent interview. She told The Telegraph, "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."
Ariana ended her response with a second tweet saying:
and I will still quote first wives club every single day of my life lmao— Ariana Grande (@ArianaGrande) November 25, 2014
Bette sort of apologized for her comments. She tweeted, "About my screed on @ArianaGrande, all I can say is, 'Spoken like a reformed old w***e! She does have a beautiful voice, on a couch or off.'"
