According to a new interview with the U.K.’s Telegraph, Bette Midler does not think much of Ariana Grande’s AMA’s performance. Not with all the sheer outfits, booty rubbing and a double dose of Ariana Grande performances.

In the interview, Bette Midler said; “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. 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.”

“Apparently people really like to pretend they’re having sex,” she said. “They really like to slap each other’s butts. I mean, don’t ask me. It’s beyond me. I’m too old. I don’t know what the end game is going to be. I don’t know where you go from all that sex in your 20s. I don’t know how you sustain it.”

She capped her diatribe off with this bit of advice: “Trust your talent. You don’t have to make a whore out of yourself to get ahead. You really don’t.”
