Bette Midler has reconsidered her churlish comments regarding Ariana Grande and whoredom—as well she should. In a humorous tweet, she veered into self-deprecation and praised the gifted vocalist for her instrument.
In related news, Midler just had the highest-debuting album of her career, and becomes only the second woman to hit the Top 10 in the '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s and '10s—after Barbra Streisand. Midler's feat is of particular note considering the fact that only six of her albums have hit the Top 10, meaning five of those did it in separate decades.
Will either Barbra or Bette log another Top 10 album in the 2020s? We'll see hear!
