    The latest diva feud comes to an end.

    Bette Midler almost set off intergenerational diva battle this week when she accused singer Ariana Grande of acting like “a whore."

    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.

    The iconic singer's advice for the twenty-one-year-old superstar? "Trust your talent. You don’t have to make a whore out of yourself to get ahead."

    On Twitter, Ariana stepped out from under the shade Bette cast and stood up for herself.

    To her credit, Bette walked back her original statements on social media.

    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."
