Get this: Justin Bieber claims he doesn’t know who Bette Midler is. Yeah, right
I’ve got no patience for the antics of Justin Bieber as it is but this takes the cake.
The kid has dissed Bette Midler!
Last month, The Divine Miss M, – a superstar before even Bieber’s mother was born – dissed Bieber’s dad when he bragged about how long his kid’s schlong is (nude vacation photos surfaced, blah, blah, blah). Bette tweeted: @justinbieber dad tweeted he’s proud of his son’s penis size. I think the biggest dick in this situation is the dad who abandoned his son.
In an interview with Billboard, Bieber tries to throw shade on an icon who has sold over 30 million records worldwide – and counting.
“This Britt Meddler,” says Justin, “I don’t even know who that is, honestly. I wanted to immediately say ‘Who is this lady?’, but then I’m just fueling this negativity. I do feel the photo was an invasion of my privacy. I felt super violated. My dad made light of it, but I don’t think that’s sick and twisted. It was funny. Dads are going to be dads.”
You know the kid grew up watching Hocus Pocus every Halloween.
And if her Emmys, Grammys, Tony, Golden Globes and two Oscar nominations weren’t enough, there are number one songs (Wind Beneath My Wings, The Rose, From A Distance), big box office hits (First Wives Club, Ruthless People, Big Business), and one month shy of 70, the ability to still sell out arenas as she proved on tour this year.
She is a showbiz legend and he’s a punk. I wonder who will be paying to see Bieber at 70.
To calm down, I’m posting a collection of Bette’s songs. Enjoy!
