Shady Bette Midler: The Divine Miss M's most legendary tweets

2017-12-01
Bette Midler. Her half-century career has spanned film, television, stage and music. There's every '90s kid's favourite film, Hocus Pocus, and possibly the best weepie chick flick of all time, Beaches. From┬áher infamous early days entertaining the clients in gay saunas as 'Bathhouse Betty', to last year's gorgeous girl group tribute album It's The Girls - which scored the biggest first-week sales of her career - The Divine Miss M's highlights are almost too numerous to list. But instead, we're turn our attention to the diva's more recent, unexpected reinvention: As one of the undisputed queens of Twitter. After so many years in the biz, Midler has earned the right to simply not give a f*ck, and tweets with wild abandon about news and pop culture, happily making powerful enemies as she goes - the most recent of which being one Mrs Kardashian West. You may not always agree with what she says, but you have to admire her chutzpah.
