Bette Midler, Of All People, Weighs In On Miley Cyrus “Whipping Out The Girls”

“I think there’s a difference between pushing the envelope sexually and pushing the envelope creatively. I think you can be as creative as you want to be and as inventive as you want to be…you can roll out old ideas and old thoughts and give them a new coat of paint. But the idea of whipping out the girls, I don’t know, there’s a grossness to it that I think is not flattering…to the women themselves.”

Legendary diva Bette Midler is not someone we would have expected to weigh in on Mileygate. But when asked by Katie Couric about her thoughts on the sexualization of young female performers, she killed it. I really like the line about pushing the envelope “creatively” versus “sexually” and how they are not the same thing.  I know Miley Cyrus has Dolly Parton, another legendary diva, as her godmother but Auntie Bette sounds pretty smart, too.
