Ariana Grande has responded to comments made by Bette Midler earlier this week in which the entertainer called the pop diva’s sexy image "ridiculous."

"It’s terrible!" Midler told The Telegraph when asked about the "pornification" of pop music. "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."

Grande replied on Twitter with a screenshot of a tweet, which read: "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 also attached a photo of Midler in her trademark mermaid getup and followed up with another tweet, writing, "and I will still quote first wives club every single day of my life lmao."
