Ariana Grande's Sexy Act Criticized By Bette Midler

(Radio.com) Ariana Grande can't seem to catch a break. First, The Big Bang Theory's Mayim Bialik slams her for being too sexy and now Bette Midler is calling her sexy act "ridiculous."

In an interview with The Telegraph in the U.K., Midler says it's surprising to see Grande, with her "silly high voice, a very wholesome voice, slithering around on a couch looking so ridiculous." Midler even suggests she finds some better management.

"I mean, it's silly beyond belief and I don't know who's telling her to do it. I wish they'd stop," she tells the paper. "But it's not my business, I'm not her mother. Or her manager. Maybe they tell them that's what you've got to do. Sex sells. Sex has always sold."

Midler also goes on to question the booty obsession pop music seems to have right now. "Apparently people really like to pretend they're having sex," she said. "They really like to slap each other's butts. I mean, don't ask me. It's beyond me. I'm too old. I don't know what the end game is going to be. I don't know where you go from all that sex in your 20s. I don't know how you sustain it."

In the end, she has a simple word of advice for all young female pop stars like Grande: "Trust your talent. You don't have to make a whore out of yourself to get ahead. You really don't."
