Bette Midler Songwriter Hall of Fame Lifetime Achievement Award

It’s about time!!

Epic songstress Bette Midler was finally given the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Songwriters Hall of Fame induction ceremony on Thursday night.

Stevie Nicks, another legendary lady who know a little something about selling records, presented the chart-topping multi-Grammy winner with her prestigious award.

From a distance — sorry, we had to — Bette was a little chippy while delivering her acceptance speech.

She said:

"This thing has been going on for 43 years and this is the first time I've been invited? I'm kind of annoyed."

LOLz!! We're positive she was being sarcastic!!

Always a fan of self-deprecation, she then added:

"First I was a tramp, then a visionary. Then I was an icon, then an institution. This is an award for tenacity.. I would also like to thank people who love me unconditionally even when I was at my worst. Which is, unfortunately, a lot."

Lies, Bette!!

You’re eternally FABULOUS!!

Mz. Nicks agrees — she offered nothing but her praise:

“[Bette] takes each song and sings them as if she had written them herself."

U R not too shabby yourself, Stevie!!

    Since Bette is not a song writer,
    how did she end up getting a songwriter award ?
    Bette has built her career on ripping other artist off
    Be it Divine, Sophia Tucker, or Martha Raye

    Re: pusi waters – VERY good point, I suspect that if a writer award was given only to WRITERS, many people would NOT recognize the names. most people i know have NO CLUE who wrote any of the music they like. Of course NO ONE from the POP,HIP-HOP, RAP etc, will EVER win this award. There are no more troubadours any more.

    Lifetime achievement for being mediocre? Her songs have almost as much throw away filler material in them as her face. After all, we all remember such timeless hits as Baby Jane, Fiesta In Rio and The Showgirl Must Go On. I guess the Chocolate Rain guy was unavailable that night.

    Every songwriter that aspired to be in this FOH should just put a gun in their mouth and pull the trigger!
    What a joke the entire POS is.
