bette midler on katie couric show about miley cyrus

The FABOOSH Bette Midler stopped by Katie Couric's talk show, Katie, to dish on all things diva and she shared her thoughts on the pop stars today.

Katie asked Bette her view on artists like Miley Cyrus and Lady GaGa and their attention seeking ways and Bette's answer was pretty spot on.

She said:

"I think there's a difference between pushing the envelope sexually and pushing the envelope creatively. I think you can be as creative as you want to be and as inventive as you want to be…you can roll out old ideas and old thoughts and give them a new coat of paint. But the idea of whipping out the girls, I don't know, there's a grossness to it that I think is not flattering…to the women themselves."

Seeing as Bette is one of the original divas, we totally see her point!

She's a creative, inventive genius which we're sure most pop-stars today have been inspired by!!!

Bette also went on to dish about how much fun she and Sarah Jessica Parker had while filming Halloween favorite, Hocus Pocus!

Hmmm…We wonder how Mileybird feels about Bette's comments! We hope it doesn't start another feud!!

    Well, while we are on the topic of what is acceptable and what is gross, lets talk about the issue of women their ages wearing bikinis on beaches. I mean, come on. You can give them a new coat of paint but the idea of whipping out the bikinis, I dont know, there's a grossness to it that I think is not flattering to the women themselves.

    This coming from the most UNORIGINAL performer out there
    Remember she started off by calling herself Divine, even though there already was a very talented performer, named Divine
    She than copied the Andrew Sisters routines, along the way taking lots of Sophie Tuckers blue material,
    To top off her plagiarism she stole Martha Ray's idea for her film For the Boys,
    giving a dying Martha no credit, and no $$
    Dreadful, dreadful woman

    Boy, Perez gets some classy commenters doesn't he? Bette Midler is wonderful, funny, talented and she can sing. She made it without ever turning herself into porn scum. She gives back to the public thru charity and she can rock a bikini anytime she wants. She is right on spot about the priority needing to be talent. Any young girl or guy can pimp/prostitute themselves. Sadly, many do and end up dead somewhere.

    Re: Lil Birdie – No no no. No bikini please. Some of us out here are heterosexual males. Older women and bikinis is kinda disgusting. One piece suits are classier on them.

    If god said to me "you can have sex Miley cyrus or Bette Or katey. Thats my gift to you for being so damn high IQ and helping my lower IQ humans think properly", I'd have to choose miley. I prefer my women a little on the wild side. I don't want to marry a prudish woman. Those are the ones that rifle thru your things looking for your porno collection. I want the kind of woman that says "porn. you are into porn? I found these porn mags in your suitcase. well, lets bring another girl in and post threesome videos online". Miley might even bee too good girl for me. I like bad girls who are baaaaad bad bad. They are more fun at night.
