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!!
