    Bette vs. Adriana? PUHleeeeeeesssse! Bette was original. Bette IS an original. Adrianna? Who?

    I’m team Ariana all the way. She responded with grace and respect. Bette just comes off as a mean, jealous old lady.

  • b324

    …no she doesn’t. She sounds like most of us who don’t understand the constant need for women to act like sluts just to make it.

  • Bob

    Ariana should be honored that Bette uttered her name

  • yitz

    or maybe she can just dress however she wants to!

  • Janey Danes

    Truth hurts Ariana.

  • MiraWildeW

    One of the best passive-aggressive replies: post a picture of a practically naked Bette, then smile and say you didn’t mind her comments. Beautiful work from Ariana’s PR team.

  • PlayNice

    Obviously, I’m on Bette’s side – she’s a true woman, an artist, an icon in her own right. But why did she feel the need to diss Ariana like that? There’s no reason for it.

  • mm366

    OR, she can dress the way she knows will detract from those weak vocals by steering the attention onto her T & A like every other nasal Auto-tuned vocally deficient so-called singer peer she has out there.

    Bette was right in her comments.

    Ariana DOES present herself as this child with the ponytails and high schoolgirl voice on the red carpet and in interviews. But then when she gets on stage, despite having WAY MORE talent than most of her counterparts, she is in these outfits that make her appear to be the 21 year old woman she is.

    It’s disturbing that her team and even herself doesn’t stand up for her TALENT and would rather go the ‘sex sells’ route. She looks like a baby hooker and she doesn’t have the mature look on her yet.

  • Soniaintown

    Arianna won this one. But I want to add something, you cannot expect to be yourself without other people’s judgments. People judge, so do you. The thing is to be whatever F you want to be with NO FEAR of people’s judgments.

    Oh, slut-shaming!

  • b324

    Sorry, but there is a difference to me in being sexy and being sexual and being feminine and a woman and incorporating it into your brand. And then there is this need as the years go on for women to just be slutty and act like strippers and show off as much skin and breasts and ass and vagina with no care to your brand or to keep it actually sexy. Raunchy isn’t pretty and it seems like that is what passes these days. Writhing on a couch isn’t talent, which is why Bette wins because of that comment.

    THAT is not slut shaming.

  • Маргарита Бабовникова

    “women to just be slutty and act like strippers and show off as much skin and breasts and ass and vagina”

    it’s woman body, it her business what to do with it.
    if any man will show skin and breast no one will call him whore. maybe crazy and attention seeker. but never slut.

    it’s common sense, misogyny lives in your brain and can’t be removed without your mental work.

  • b324

    No men will never be called whores or sluts because women are always treated as subhuman compared to men.

    And again, you aren’t getting it. She wants to be a singer, so why not let the voice get you to where you want to go. This need to be overly sexual is pathetic. It’s a pathetic culture. And again, there is a difference between owning your sexuality and then being like a stripper and showing as much T&A to make music. I could care less if a woman wants to be a stripper, a prostitute, a ceo or a stay at home mom, it’s her prerogative. If she wants to be a virgin till marriage or sleep with a new man every night, her body, her choice. But there comes a time when we, as women, need to stop lowering ourselves to the sexual level of showing off our bodies and skin because that’s what we think needs to happen to make it in this world.

    And GTFO with misogyny lives in my head. STFD with that bull.
