Bette Midler is back on top with her new stage show in Sin City tonight, and sheâ€™s giving â€œExtraâ€ her most personal interview ever.
True to form, her new review is called â€œThe Showgirl Must Go On,â€ and Bette said sheâ€™s ready to kick up her heels.
â€œItâ€™s the sexiest show Iâ€™ve every done and Iâ€™m really proud of that,â€ she told â€œExtra.â€
Speaking of sexy, the divine Miss M has become another one of entertainmentâ€™s ageless beauties, willingly admitting to having â€œfabulous legs.â€
Has she considered plastic surgery?
â€œDoesnâ€™t everybody consider it?â€ she admitted. â€œWhen it really starts to cave in, I probably will start to give it a real good think.â€
She added, â€œI am really good about my regime. I am really disciplined. I donâ€™t keep strange hours and I donâ€™t drink a lot and I donâ€™t smoke.â€
The diva also has some sobering advice for Britney Spears.
â€œI would try to make her comfortable being herself and being alone without a lot of attention,â€ she said. â€œI would try to get her to calm down and know thereâ€™s a world besides this show business world,â€ adding, â€œThereâ€™s so much more than sheâ€™s letting herself experience.â€
But whoâ€™s to blame?
â€œItâ€™s partially due to young Hollywoodâ€™s upbringing,â€ she said. â€œA lot of these kids [young celebrities] come from parents who are ill to begin with and its no big deal for them to go down that path.â€
But while Bette admits to having her share of fun in her youth, she was able to avoid the fallen path.
â€œThe booze and drugs. Thatâ€™s a lot of fun [but] the next day you feel like a dog,â€ she confessed. â€œI used to feel so lousy that I couldnâ€™t workâ€¦so I never wanted to be so sick that I couldnâ€™t workâ€¦I escaped because I didnâ€™t have an addictive personality.â€
