Bette Midler Praises Ariana Grande for Calling Out Grammys
By Wendy Michaels
February 9, 2019
Ariana Grande will not be performing at this year’s Grammys — but not for the reason the show’s producer, Ken Ehrlich, told the media. The pop singer was quick to take to Twitter to shed some light on the reality of the situation and she’s getting plenty of fan support, as well as praise from the legendary Bette Midler.
Grande explains why Grammys producer was ‘lying’
According to Ehrlich, he said they had conversations with Grande about performing at the 2019 Grammys, as he explained to The Associated Press that she ultimately “felt it was too late for her to pull something together.” He added, “And it’s too bad. She’s a great artist.” ...

XXL Mag Bette Midler Is Pissed at Kanye West By C. Vernon Coleman II February 15, 2016 3:21 PM Though there are debates as to whether Kanye West actually got Taylor Swiftâ€™s permission before penning the misogynous line about the pop star on his new album The Life of Pablo, one thing that is not up for debate is how singer/actress Bette Midler feels about the whole situation. On the line in question, West references his infamous interruption of Swiftâ€™s acceptance speech at the 2009 MTV Music Awards, rapping on the track â€œFamous,â€ â€œI feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why? I made that bitch famous.â€ Midler, famous for her roles in the films The First Wives Club and The Stepford Wives, and her hit 1988 remake of â€œWind Beneath My Wings,â€ recently took to Twitter to blast the Chicago rap artist for having the gall publish that line. â€œKanye called Taylor Swift a bitch but said itâ€™s a term of endearment. Well then, let me be the first to say, congrats on your album, bitch!,â€ she posted. Well then. The line has been the source of much confusion since it was revealed a few days ago. West says he reached out to Swift to get her permission to run the line. But, according to Swiftâ€™s team, they warned West about â€œreleasing a song with such a strong misogynistic message.â€ The statement also claims Swift was â€œnever made aware of the lyric, â€˜I made that bitch famous.â€™â€ Kanye, however is sticking with his story that the line was given a pass recently taking to Twitter to explain himself. â€œFirst thing is Iâ€™m an artist as and as an artist I will express how I feel with no censorship,â€ he posted. â€œ2nd thing I asked my wife for her blessing and she was cool with it. 3rd thing I called Taylor and had a hour long convo with her about the line and she thought it was funny and gave her blessings.â€ (Kanye shrug) =&0=&

Madison The Latest: Midler, McGraw among stars honoring Glenn Frey January 19, 2016 NEW YORK (AP) â€” The latest on the death of Glenn Frey, a co-founder of the rock band the Eagles (all times local): 8:30 p.m. Bette Midler, Tim McGraw and Steve Martin are among the celebrities paying tribute to Eagles co-founder Glenn Frey. Frey died Monday in New York at age 67. Midler posted on Twitter that Frey’s songs perfectly captured the days of 1970s Los Angeles. Country star McGraw tweets that Frey’s music was “personally inspirational” and he leaves a timeless legacy. Martin went online to recall Frey as a friend from the early days, adding, “We loved you.” Actor Rob Lowe tweeted the soundtrack of his life was created by Frey. Lowe says he’s devastated at the loss of “one of the nicest men” he ever met. ___ 6:10 p.m. Eagles member Don Henley says bandmate Glenn Frey was like a brother to him. Frey died Monday in New York. Henley says they were family and experienced some dysfunction but the bond they forged 45 years ago was never broken, even during the 14 years the Eagles were dissolved. Frey and Henley became one of history’s most successful songwriting teams with such hits as “Hotel California” and “Life in the Fast Lane.” Henley says Frey “started it all” and was “the spark plug, the man with the plan.” He says Frey had “an encyclopedic knowledge of popular music and a work ethic that wouldn’t quit.” ___ 5:30 p.m. Glenn Frey, who co-founded the Eagles and with Don Henley became one of history’s most successful songwriting teams with such hits as “Hotel California” and “Life in the Fast Lane,” has died. Frey was 67 and had been battling multiple ailments. He died Monday. The band’s website says he died in New York. Guitarist Frey and drummer Henley formed the Eagles in Los Angeles in the early 1970s, along with guitarist Bernie Leadon and bassist Randy Meisner. They would become a top act over the next decade, embodying the melodic California sound. An Eagles greatest hits collection from the mid-1970s and “Hotel California” are among the best-selling albums in history. Frey was born in Detroit and was raised in the suburbs. His solo hits include “The Heat Is On” and “Smuggler’s Blues.”

Earn The Necklace Anna Kendrick Says She Would Die for Bette Midlerâ€”Hereâ€™s Whyâ€¦ By: Jackie Bonaventura – December 24, 2015 At age 70, Bette Midler is still going strong. Personally, our favorite memory from her career is her cameo on The Simpsons back in 1993 when she voiced herself. But all these years later, weâ€™re still learning things about her. For instance, sheâ€™s apparently a whiz in the kitchenâ€”well, sort of. And her latest recipe has gained her a new superfan: Pitch Perfect star Anna Kendrick! On Twitter, Bette Midler posted a holiday recipe for eggnog that anyone can do, provided theyâ€™re 21 and older. She wrote, â€œHappy holidays to all: Here is my recipe for dairy-free, sugar-free, vegan eggnog: Bourbon.â€ Now thatâ€™s festive! The post was both liked and retweeted over 10, 000 times; guess a lot of people prefer Midlerâ€™s take on traditional eggnog. And one of the people who liked Midlerâ€™s tweet was none other than fellow celebrity Anna Kendrick. The starlet made her opinion of the â€œrecipeâ€ clear with only four words: â€œIâ€™d die for you.â€ Clearly, someone is planning to spend their holidays in the kitchen! Assuming, you know, thatâ€™s where the liquor cabinet is.\ Kendrickâ€™s response received even more likes than the original tweet, at over 15,000. And fans of both stars definitely appreciated the pairâ€™s interaction. â€œTwo of my favourite legends coming together over booze. Itâ€™s a Christmas miracle!â€ wrote one elated fan. A lot of people added that they, in turn, would die for Anna Kendrick; while the dedication is easy to appreciate, letâ€™s hope that none of them follow through on that. After all, itâ€™s not very much in the Christmas spirit! And if youâ€™re not particular about what you put in your â€œeggnog,â€ one person suggested that scotch is a good sub if you donâ€™t have bourbon.â€ We hope Bette Midler, Anna Kendrick, and all of you enjoy your holiday meals and treats, just be sure to drink your eggnog responsibly. Merry Christmas!

1. When she reviewed 50 Shades of Grey:50 Shades of Grey? Pretty tame. If Christian were a real sadist, he would’ve made her watch while he went through her Google search history!
2. When she got us excited for The Monthly Show with Bette Midler:Hm. The Daily Show w/Bette Midler has a nice ring to it. Except for the “daily” part. I’d prefer The Monthly (Unless I’m On Vacation) Show.
3. When she compared her workout routine to BDSM:Getting back in shape for my upcoming tour is killing me! After a workout, I’m like 50 Shades of Grey – in pain, in bed, and unable to move.
4. Or when she let us know how she really likes to exercise:Working hard to get back in shape for upcoming tour; just bought heavier martini glasses to build upper body strength. It’s worked before!
5. When she totally understood what the holidays are all about:Happy Passover! Such a great tradition of getting together with friends and family and arguing about current events you sort of understand.
6. When she was as intrigued by a live-action Winnie the Pooh as we all are:Disney is making a live-action “Winnie the Pooh” movie! I’d love to see that casting call, “Portly, hairy, must be willing to go pantsless.”
7. When she considered entering the 2016 presidential race: ...
