Earlier this week, Bette Midler called Ariana Grande a "whore." No really, that happened.

The 68-year-old music legend offered some career advice to the 21-year-old pop princess by basically telling her to put some clothes on and stop humping furniture in her music videos.

  • Bette Midler at the Oscars

Not surprisingly, Ari was less than thrilled with Bette's unsolicited pro tips. In fact, sources claimed Ariana is a huge fan of Bette's, and that she was shocked by the insults, as she always saw herself as following in Midler's footsteps. 

Ari is known for her hot temper, and were fans braced for a full-blown War of the Divas. Sadly, when Grande finally responded to Bette's comments on Twitter last night, she took the high road in admirable fashion:

Yesterday, music legend Bette Midler slammed Ariana Grande for her skimpy attire and overtly sexual music videos.

While discussing Ari's public image, Midler even went so far as to say, "You don't need to make a whore of yourself to get ahead."

  • Ariana Grande: No Ponytail!
  • Bette Midler at the Oscars

The OD (Original Diva) certainly went too far in her criticism, but anyone who's seen Ariana's "Love Me Harder" video (So much writhing!) can certainly see how it might not appeal to an old-school songstress in her late 60s.

Of course, when Ms. Midler first hit the music scene nearly fifty years ago, she was just another young dreamer willing to do whatever it took to make her stage show stand out.

This occasionally involved the use of provocative costumes and suggestive lyrics.

So yeah, there's a bit of pot-kettle-black hypocrisy going on, and that fact is reportedly not lost on Ari:

Last week, Ariana Grande released the video for "Love Me Harder," and the Internet responded with a collective "ick."

Sure, Ariana looks good, and at 21, she's free to express herself however she sees fit. 

But the fact remains that between her high-pitched voice, her fondness for furry cat ears, and the fact that she looks like the digits in her age should be reversed, there's something uncomfortable about the sight of Ari getting intimate with various pieces of furniture.

Fortunately, Bette Midler never shies away from speaking truth to divas.

"It's terrible!" Midler said when asked about the video in a recent interview. "It's always surprising to see someone like Ariana Grande with that silly high voice, slithering around on a couch, looking so ridiculous."

Jessie J performed her hit "Bang Bang" at the American Music Awards 2014, with Ariana Grande joining her on the track and several audience members dancing along.

And by dancing, we mean shaking booty in the case of Khloe Kardashian, and Taylor Swift ... doing whatever it is Taylor Swift does. Because obviously. Watch:

The British brunette beauty certainly bang banged into the room in her tight, gold body suit, while Ariana and Nicki Minaj provided the track even more energy.

While Ariana did her thing on stage, Jessie worked the crowd, getting down with Taylor and Khloe, the latter of which gave her bottom a smack in mid-performance.

Ariana's brother and Big Brother star Frankie Grande also caught the cameras' attention, bopping along to the catchy tune as he supported his little sis and cohorts.

Jessie J's peformance was but one of many memorable efforts at the 2014 American Music Awards, a star studded bonanza that also featured the likes of ...

Big Sean is no longer playing coy about his romance with Ariana Grande.

After keeping their relationship private for months, the rapper had no problem showing off his love for her very publicly via two sweet Instagram photos.

"Me n my Ari," he captioned the pics below of the couple kissing ...

Ariana Grande and Big Sean Kissing

The pictures were taken on Tuesday, November 18 when the couple performed on stage together at A Very Grammy Christmas Concert in Los Angeles.

"It's gone from 0 to 60 fast," a source said of the pair's romance.

While they had "chemistry immediately," both were in relationships as recently as this summer, when Ariana broke up with Australian musician Jai Brooks.

Big Sean, even more notably, was engaged to Naya Rivera.

Clearly, this worked out for the best, as Ariana Grande and Big Sean seem beyond happy together and are said to be head over heels in love with each other.

Pop star Ariana Grande's alleged diva ways are the subject of another tabloid report after an old Nickelodeon contract of hers was reportedly obtained.

Ariana Grande: The Diva?

Ariana, who got her big break on the show Victorious, was a diva in training even back before most people knew her name, the new report claims.

Life & Style claims her contract spelled out that her dressing room must be superior to that of all the other stars on the show, except for the "marquee" stars.

Apparently, Victoria Justice was big enough to meet that standard. But the rest of the hacks on that show? Step OFF and bow down to the HBIC!

In response to the frequent Ariana Grande diva rumors, the 21-year-old recently defended herself and implied that she's just a hard worker, stating:

"There’s a big difference between being determined and being a bitch."

You may not recognize Ariana Grande if you bump into her on the street these days. Actually you will, she's the petite girl pulling insane diva antics.

We kid. But she did ditch her signature ponytail in favor of a new, sleek hairstyle at the MTV European Music Awards. Check out how much different she looks!

  • Ariana Grande: No Ponytail!
  • Ariana Grande: No Pony Tail

The breakout star's teenybopper hair has become as synonymous with her as her pop hits, so this came as a bit of a surprise on Sunday's red carpet.

That sexy navy gown with the huge side cutouts and sheer detailing was almost an afterthought, which is saying something. Girl had it going on that night.

Clearly she had no "Problem" in her bid to "Break Free" from her old look.

See what we did there? We are here all day, people. All DAY. 25/8.

Last night's 2014 CMA Awards contained plenty of surprise appearances, but apparently one unexpected cameo did not sit well with country music fans.

Ariana Grande took the stage with Little Big Town to perform her hit "Bang, Bang" and while the audience on hand seemed to enjoy the show, folks watching at home took to the Internet to voice their displeasure.

Here are some sample tweets:

"Ariana Grande doesn't belong at the CMAs (especially in that outfit)"

"Why is Ariana Grande performing at the country music awards if she's not even a country singer? I'm confused."

"Still wildly confused as to why Ariana Grande was performing Bang Bang at the CMAs."

Jessie J and Nicki Minaj? Who needs 'em! Ariana Grande and Little Big Town teamed up for a rendition of "Bang Bang" at the 2014 CMA Awards last night ...

The 2014 CMA Awards featured Little Big Town taking the stage to perform its latest hit song "Day Drinking," before welcoming the Top 40 diva to the stage.

Rocking her signature ponytail, silver two-piece dress and matching heels, the 21-year-old made quite an impression with her looks and her vocal stylings.

The band did its best to reenact Minaj's rapping skills on the hit song.

Just kidding. But it was still a great mix of pop and country for sure.

The country quartet seemed thrilled to welcome their special guest.

When Ariana Grande performed "Love Me Harder" on Saturday Night Live back in September, critics immediately declared it her most mature, compelling performance to date.

Today, Ari dropped a video for the second single off of her My Everything album, and we think it's safe to say the former Nickelodeon star is definitely all grown up:

Yes, Ariana's cat ears have been a source of controversy in the past, but we doubt people will be talking about her choice of headgear after watching this clip.

While the video for Ariana and Iggy Azalea's "Problem" was certainly a departure from Grande's earlier, more kid-friendly fare, "Love Me Harder" is by far the pop star's most grown-up work thus far.
