Ariana Grande is firing back at Bette Midler, taking to Twitter to respond to Bette's recent quote dissing Ariana for her sexy image.

In the interview, Bette spoke about young entertainers - specifically calling out Ariana - who use sex appeal to advance their career. She said, "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."

Her advice to young stars was "Trust your talent. You don't have to make a whore out of yourself to get ahead. You really don't."

Ariana tweeted a response to the legendary singer's comments, writing: "All love here," adding, "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."

Ariana added, "And I will still quote First Wives Club every single day of my life lmao."

UPDATE: Bette has responded! The singer tweeted: "About my screed on @ArianaGrande, all I can say is, Spoken like a reformed old whore! She does have a beautiful voice, on a couch or off."
