Bette Midler Dishes Her Divalicious Thoughts On Pop-Stars Like Miley Cyrus On Katie Couric's Talk Show!

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!!

Kristin Chenoweth Might Say "Hello" To Hello Dolly!

kristen chenoweth bridow

Shut the backstage door!

It's been recently reported that Kristin Chenoweth is in discussions to play Dolly Levi in a multimillion dollar Broadway revival of Hello Dolly! Wicked!

Apparently, the role has been offered in the past to Queen Latifah, and Bette Midler, who turned it down because she didn't want to do a grueling 8 performances a week!

However, it looks like the Popular singer seems to be the most popular candidate for the job, as Kristin has made it crystal clear that she'd like to do Dolly sometime in the next decade.

Well, it looks like that dream might come 8 years early, as the revival is expected to happen within the next 2 years!

We're so excited at the prospect of Elphaba being the alpha babe in Hello Dolly!, and changing the titular role for good!

Warning: Get your tissues ready!

Bette Midler has always been about providing inspiration to many, but her music and spirit especially hit home for one very sick girl.

28-year-old Anna Greenberg, who was a mega-fan of Bette, died last month after battling a rare form of cancer.

Days before Anna's passing, Mizz Midler called the girl in the hospital and sang Wind Beneath My Wings, which was one of Anna's last requests.

In the video, Bette professed:
