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."

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."

Lady Gaga's fashion is meant to shock audiences, but one recent getup drew criticism from unexpected places - groups with disabilities, and Bette Midler.

Some handicapped citizens were far from thrilled with a wheelchair-bound mermaid character that Gaga unveiled at last week's monster concert in Sydney.

Also not pleased? Midler, who performed in an almost identical getup three decades ago, while playing her alter-ego character named Delores DeLago.

Midler fired off a series of critical tweets to Gaga, saying, "I've been doing the mermaid in a wheelchair since 1980. You can keep the meat dress."

Gaga, who was born (this way) in 1986, claims she had no idea.

"I had no idea she did that and I'm a huge Bette Midler fan," she explained to Access Hollywood. "Maybe we're just cut from the same cloth. I couldn't hop around in that tail so I just stuck myself in a wheelchair."

Bette Midler is a bit before our time. But comments from the actress/singer make her right up our alley.

The outspoken, truth-telling diva has blasted Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan for their wild ways, calling them "sluts."

Such a Freakin' Mess

The singer/actress admits she enjoyed wild times when she was younger, but she would never have left home without underwear and was appalled to see pictures, such as these Britney crotch shots, of the girls baring all in recent photographs.

"I've been on the other side to these wild and woolly sluts that we are seeing around our lives these days and I've taken the other side," said Mider. "I started my life out as pretty wild, but I have decided, after much growing and living, that its time that we got nicer!"

And more useful, Ashlee Simpson.

Bette ended with a message to these dirty gals: "Get a life, get a grip. I mean someone should sit those ladies down."

Apparently, Al Gore, Bill Clinton and Hilary Clinton are more than willing to.
