Bette Midler: Young Female Pop Stars Are GrossBy: Tobias Roth - November 1, 2013
Being the veteran performer that Bette Midler is, she is entitled to judge the young talent, and recently came out calling those young stars like Miley Cyrus gross.
Just as most people these days, she simply feels that the young pop stars could use a lesson in class, and learn how to act like adults.
Midler is also known by her informal stage nickname The Divine Miss M, and has had a very successful career as both an singer-songwriter and an actress.
Perhaps her most well-known film gig was the Halloween kids favorite Hocus Pocus. She is truly a superstar at what she does, and throughout her career has been nominated for two Academy Awards, won three Grammy Awards, four Golden Globes, three Emmys, and one Tony Award.
After 20 years, the film is a classic Halloween selection for many people to watch around the holiday, and the actress even opened up about the film recently, saying that it is one of her favorites.
In Bette Midler’s recent attack of the young pop star generation, she has urged young pop stars to show some class as they continue to test their boundaires of creativity and sexiness. She also added that they are continuing to risk demeaning all women, while carrying on with their “gross” stunts.
Of course, when thinking of these gross stunts, the incident at the VMA’s with Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke certainly comes to mind. Midler also refers to the new song from Britney Spears, titled “Work B**ch,” in which she dances around in a bikini, cracking a whip at a woman on the floor.
Her revealing interview about the young pop stars took place with Katie Couric on her show Katie yesterday, on Halloween. While some of the performers claim to simply be pushing boundaries and not doing anything wrong, Bette Midler clearly states that “there’s a difference between pushing the envelope sexually and pushing the envelope creatively.”
Bette Midler also went on to say that the sexual-boundary pushing is not flattering to the women themselves. The young stars like Miley Cyrus and Lady Gaga are certainly not putting themselves in a good light, and most people do not want to see them showing off the majority of their body while on stage either.
