She's such a swan.

Ariana Grande has responded to Bette Midler's recent, and extremely harsh, criticisms, which basically involved calling her a whore. Seriously, Ariana Grande?

Of course, Ariana being Ariana, managed to respond with as much grace as a swan in swan store eating swan scented liquorice. Or something like that.

"Bette was always a feminist who stood for women being able to do whatever the F they wanted without judgement!... Not sure where that Bette went, but I want that sexy mermaid back!!! Always a fan no matter what, my love."

Then she added.  

Ariana brings up an excellent point. Bette Midler has, in the process of her apparent 'slut-shaming', lied to us (or at least created a pretty glaring double standard) all through the medium of song.

And ALSO dance. Remember this?

 We hate when people do that.

 Bette Midler has now responded to Ariana, and while not really retracting her statement, she did at least praise Ariana's "beautiful voice".
