Two can play at this game!
Ariana Grande took to her Twitter today to respond to Bette Midler's Telegraph
interview, in which the music icon dissed the pop diva and called her a "wh*re" among other things, and the young songstress tried to take the high road while pointing out the hypocrisy of Midler's statements.
"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," Grande posted with a photo of Midler in a sexy costume and the caption, "all love here."
In case you missed it, the First Wives Club
star slammed Grande and her fellow pop princesses for using sex to sell music. "It's terrible. It’s always surprising to see someone like Ariana Grande with that silly high voice, a very wholesome voice, slithering around on a couch looking so ridiculous. I mean, it’s silly beyond belief and I don’t know who’s telling her to do it," the 68-year-old sniped to the paper. "I wish they'd stop. I wish they’d stop. 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," she added.
"Whatever structures there were have fallen apart. And now it’s whatever you feel like doing you can do. I mean, apparently people really like to pretend they’re having sex. They really like to slap each other’s butts," she continued, acknowledging that maybe she was out of touch with reality. She did have words of wisdom for this generation of performers, though! "Trust your talent. You don’t have to make a wh*re out of yourself to get ahead. You really don’t."
Your move, Bette!

Kim Kardashian is back in black! Trading her nude and white ensembles in for a darker style, Kimbo donned an all-black outfit when she touched down at LAX after her long flight from Dubai.
We have to take issue with this outfit selection. It might be time to have a sit down with Kim and tell her LEGGINGS ARE NOT PANTS! If she was wearing those cropped leggings to the gym, we'd be fine with it, but not with high heels, a button-down and a trench coat! No -- just no!
Earlier this week, the 34-year-old was in the Middle East (with Khloe's boyfriend French Montana) doing appearances to promote her seventh fragrance Fleur Fatale, which is described as a "beautifully floral and elegant scent."
Amazingly enough -- right after landing, Kim headed straight to Beverly Hills and stopped by famed salon Anastasia for a wax. When a gal needs a wax -- she needs a wax!
Meanwhile, it appears as though Kimmy K is turning the other to the recent rumors claiming that she and Kanye were having some marital problems. Kim's rep told E! that,"there is nothing wrong" and that the latest speculation is "nonsense."
Is Kim wearing black to symbolize the death of Kimye?! We can't wait to find out!

You can't fool us! Justin Bieber may have thought he tricked us, but we could spot that Canadian trouble maker anywhere -- bandana or no bandana! Those dropped-crotch pants were a dead giveaway!
Wearing some serious ruby, gold and diamond bling, the 20-year-old ducked out of a New York City restaurant on Tuesday night in attempt to go low-profile. We aren't sure if masking oneself in something an old-timey bandit of the Old West would wear is exactly how to stay on the DL -- but we are just glad we caught Bieber in his attempted escape.
The Biebs might be to keeping a low profile now that Forbes
magazine just listed the "Boyfriend" singer at the top of its Highest-Earning Celebrities Under 30 list. The mag estimates that the heartbreaker has made an $80 million over a 12-month period, which was mostly earned through his headline-making world tour.
Maybe the money-making JB is wearing a disguise because he doesn't want to get kidnapped? He is rather small and probably easy to snatch!

Is she ready for the club or the treadmill?! From the fancy shades to the leather jacket to the cleavage, Khloe Kardashian looks awfully dressed up for a workout!
On Tuesday afternoon the 30-year-old reality TV starlet hit the gym in Los Angeles, but we have a theory as to why she's busting out. You see, her tank top is pulled down to cover up her crotch, and in the process she ended up bringing the neckline on her shirt below her sports bra. Camel toe is never a sexy look, but boobs are never a problem, so Khloe managed to find a way to keep everyone happy! (And yes, we've used this technique before to hide the toe after a workout -- no shame in that!)
In other Khloe news, she posted some super glam shots on Instagram yesterday after stopping by the studio, but it looks like she received some nasty remarks from the haters. Well, that's not news, but we do find it interesting that she makes time to read all of her comments -- and that she lets it bother her! Earlier today she tweeted, "Why do the ones who always talk sh*t on instagram have their accounts private?" Good question, Khloe. But why worry about them?

We've never seen Jen look so unkept before!
Jennifer Aniston is generating Oscar buzz for her role in the upcoming drama Cake, and we can see why! The actress plays a chronic pain sufferer whose life takes a turn when a friend from her support group, played by Anna Kendrick, commits suicide. The A-lister's character then becomes obsessed with learning about Kendrick's character's life and death.
The clip shows Jen A visiting doctors, picking up pills, and crying in her pain support group, and that's just the beginning of the dark storyline that might help her nab her first Academy Award.
So how did our favorite Friend transform herself from fab to frumpy? "I basically just didn't work out for two-and-a-half months. I stopped working out and I stopped being as careful about my diet as I normally am. I was still healthy, but I'd allow more," she explained during a recent Q&A for the flick.
We can't wait to see this! Cake hits theaters in January 2015.

It certainly looks that way!
Lisa Rinna went for an early morning hike at Coldwater Canyon in L.A. today, and the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills
star's pout was looking noticeably fuller than it was (pictured right) in March 2013! We know the reality star has been candid about enhancing her pucker in the past, but just last year she confessed that she had had a reduction to achieve a more normal appearance.
"Here's the story: 25 years ago, I had my lips injected with silicone. Stupid thing to do at 24. I saw Beaches
. Remember that movie Beaches
? I did it with my best girlfriend, so she and I go and we get our lips done. Fine. I have it like that for my whole career, right? So then cut to a couple of years ago, I have a doctor remove as much as they possibly can because it got to the point where they were yucky. You know, they get hard. It's gross. They are now whatever that was after they took out as much of the silicone as they could," she explained on the Today Show
Whether she did or she didn't, she's going to need a big mouth anyways to be heard over all the other catty ladies on the new RHOBH

And we love it!
Vanessa Hudgens hit the gym on Monday, and as usual, she tried to cover up her pretty face, but why?! She has perfect skin, she's gorgeous, and given that she once sent Zac Efron a snapshot of her hairy snatch, she can't possibly believe that photos steal your soul. At least not sexy selfies, anyway...
The former High School Musical
hottie took a spin class with her sister Stella, and she grabbed a smoothie before zipping off in her car. We'll see V. Hudge next in the sci-fi comedy Kitchen Sink
, but she doesn't seem to have many projects on her plate at the moment. But seeing as she recently had to get a restraining order against a crazed fan from Africa, it seems like she has a lot going on.
A man named Junior Kabongo sent Hudgens dozens of e-mails, and not only were they creepy, but quite graphic. "Hello, I love you and want to marry you," he wrote in one, adding, "God gave me a penis to make you feel like you never did everytime when we'll make love." Eeee!
Kabongo then said he was coming to Los Angeles, and after he was seen driving around on Hudgens' street earlier this month, the 25-year-old starlet went to a judge to seek a restraining order. Kabongo was ordered to stay 100 yards away from the actress and her sister.

Kimmy K isn't afraid to pig out!
Kim Kardashian stripped down to her undies and indulged in frosted cupcakes for the cover of Elle UK's
Confidence issue, and we can't think of someone who loves themselves more than she does, so the choice of her as a cover girl was a natural one! The mag explains how the E! starlet, "has also, through her unerring self-belief, redefined our perception of body beautiful."
The glossy goes on to praise the brunette beauty, pointing to her high self-esteem as the reason every one of her business ventures has been so successful. Kanye West's wifey, according to the article, makes a whopping $3000 an hour, gains approximately 20 social media followers every minute, and has made over $42 million in three months with her Kim Kardashian app.
Anyone that gets famous from making a porno is probably pretty confident in their own skin!
