‘@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,’ Middler tweeted on Saturday.
Let it be known, Ms Perry is no scrub (and neither is Bette Midler!)
Just three days after launching their Kickstarter campaign, TLC have not only raised enough money to record their fifth and final album, they’ve exceeded their goal. The group have so far raised over $210,000 in just three days, beating their target of $150,000 in 30 days.
TLC have raised more than enough to record their fifth and final album
The amazing total is thanks in part to some of the band’s famous fans including singer Katy Perry, who, according to TMZ, has donated $5,000 to the campaign. That $5,000 pledge gets Perry a slumber party with the girls where she can “put on her jammies, order some late night snacks and have some #TLCPillowTalk".
In support of her new album 'It's My Girl!', the 68 year-old singer is embarking on a 22-date North American tour next year.
Any fans who thought they would never get a chance to see Bette Midler live will be ecstatic to hear that the 68 year-old singer is embarking on a North American tour for the first time in ten years in May, 2015.

Celebrities flocked to the 2014 God's Love We Deliver Golden Heart Awards at Spring Studios and posed for pictures on the red carpet. Amongst them was Bette Midler, an Academy award nominee, as well as a Grammy, Golden Globe, Emmy and Tony Award winner. Also there was Jenny Slate, a stand-up comedian and actress.
There's nothing we love more than finding out when celebrities are best friends, some of them aren't a secret, others will blow you away. We bet you never knew about Bette Midler and 50 Cent's budding best friendship...
Unlike Jennifer Lawrence and her rather normal best friend, Laura Simpson, celebs often pick other famous people to have as their BFFs. They all probably bump into each other at so many events that it’s difficult not to end up practically joined at the hip. Some of these celebrity BFFs you’ll already know about, some you’ll be totally surprised to hear have even met! The phrase chalk and cheese comes to mind.
Courtney Cox and Jennifer Aniston have been BFFs since their Monica and Rachel days. The pair have seen each other through weddings and divorces, children and various film/TV projects. “We just have fun, we laugh, we’re inseparable and it’s great”, Cox said of Aniston, while her best friend in turn dubbed her “the most dependable and loyal”. Mutual appreciation society, or what? We love it! That's how all best friends should talk about each other in our opinion.

Entertaining and uplifting, this Oscar-winning documentary tells the unknown story of the back-up singers who made classic records so memorable. Packed with lively, engaging people and fantastic music, the film also offers a sharp look at the music industry over the past 60 years in parallel with the fight for civil rights in America.
In the 1950s, background singers were usually white girls who read sheet-music perfectly. But they were quickly replaced with black artists who learned their craft in churches and could improvise harmonies with the lead singers. Suddenly, pop songs were infused with passion and life, as a handful of unknown singers performed backing vocals on virtually every classic hit since then. With their powerhouse voices and larger-than-life personalities, most have also tried to find success as solo artists. Others prefer to stay in the shadows.
For example, even though established stars acknowledge that she has more talent than any of them, Lisa Fischer prefers the quiet life out of the spotlight. Other belters like Merry Clayton, Tata Vega and Claudia Lennear can be heard on hundreds of timeless classics and are known throughout the industry, but never managed to get their solo careers off the ground. Judith Hill is a young artist who does soaring backing work while waiting for her own music to take off. And Darlene Love is the exception who managed both long background and solo careers.

Designer and girlfriend to Mick Jagger, L'Wren Scott has committed suicide.
L'Wren Scott has been found dead in her Manhattan apartment this morning after what is believed to have been a suicide. The 49 year-old fashion designer and girlfriend of The Rolling Stones singer Mick Jagger was found by her assistant who received a text from L'Wren asking them to "come by," according to the NY Post.
Fashion Designer L'Wren Scott Was Found Dead By Her Assistant This Morning.
A spokesperson for New York City Police Department did not confirm that the body found was Scott's but said: "A 49-year-old female was found this morning at 10.05am at 200 11th Avenue. She was unconscious. She was pronounced dead on arrival by the emergency medical services. The investigation is ongoing. We are awaiting medical examiners to determine the cause of death."
This year's show might not be as controversial, but Zadan and Meron are still going all out.
Oscar producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron made a controversial hit out of the Oscars last year, but they might be on thin ice this time. Getting Seth McFarlane to host anything is a risky bet and his antics last year got a lot of people – notably the feminist crowd – pretty riled up. The controversy served its purpose. Last year’s show pulled in 40.3 million US viewers, the largest audience the show has had in three years. Zadan and Meron’s show was a hit with the key 18-49 demographic and the duo were invited back this year.
Ellen might be a safer choice for host, but she is far from boring.
And yet. The choice of Ellen for this year’s host suggests that the producers were at least a little bit intimidated by last year’s backlash. This year’s host, Ellen, while hilarious and ever entertaining, is a much safer option and has proven appeal with the Oscars’ key demo – women.
Bette Midler stars as Sue Mengers in the newest hit Broadway show I'll Eat You Last: A Chat with Sue Mengers.
Bette Midler has made her triumphant return to the floorboards of New York's most famous theatre district, having been away from the stages of Broadway for some thirty years, staring in the John Logan-penned one-woman show I'll Eat You Last. Director Joe Mantello is the man behind Midler's return, which is garnering quite the buzz across New York's most artistic circles, as Midler looks to prove that she's still got it no matter how long its been since she last performed live.
Bette Midler At The Openning Night of I'll Eat You Last
"I AM NOT GETTING UP!" Thats the first thing that bellows from Midler's mouth as she lounges across a couch, swathed in an aqua silk caftan, from the beginning of the play right until the very end. But regardless of the fact that she spends the full hour and twenty minutes worth of the show just maxing out and smoking cigarettes or joints, Bette's interpretation of superagent Sue Mengers never sways as she give an extraordinary virtuoso performance. Perhaps it is down to the similarly bleak background they share, or just a testament to Midler's wonderful acting talent, but Bette really does pull off a show stopping rendition of the first real female power in the movie agency industry.
Praise all round for Bette Midler's portrayal of Hollywood agent Sue Mengers
Bette Midler stars in I’ll Eat You Last: A Chat With Sue Mengers. The play tells the story of the fading glamour of one of 1970s Hollywood’s leading agents. Midler’s new venture opened last night (April 24, 2013) at Broadway’s Booth Theatre and catches up with Mengers in 1981, when her popularity is starting to wane and many of her high profile clients (she looked after Michael Caine, Barbra Streisand and Faye Dunaway to name but a few) have begun to turn their backs on her.
Bette Midler - curtain call on Broadway
A review from USA Today is full of praise for Midler, in this one-woman show and reassures readers that although the play begins with her uttering the line “I’m not getting up” (and she doesn’t , not until the very end), there is enough vivacious action in Midler’s performance to stop it from becoming static. “Under Joe Mantello's pitch-perfect direction, Midler dives into the role with predictable relish,” the review reads. Another, from the Hollywood Reporter, writes that even Mengers herself would most likely have been charmed by Bette’s portrayal of her: “It’s … hard to imagine her not being tickled by the eternally fabulous Bette Midler’s portrayal of her – a fusion of one self-made, larger-than-life persona with another in which the dividing lines all but vanish.”
