It’s ‘Adele Dazeem’ all over again! Justin Bieber totally showed his ignorance of stage/screen legend Bette Midler when he mangled her name in his ‘Billboard’ interview, referring to her as ‘Britt Midler’. Bette’s tweet was the best response ever!
Justin Bieber, 21, basically made a fool of himself in a Nov. 5 interview with Billboard magazine by proving he’s unaware of Bette Middler (“this Britt Meddler…I don’t even know who that is, honestly”). Now, Bette has responded via Twitter and showed us once again why she’s an American treasure.
“@justinbieber Britt Meddler! I don’t know who that is either! But damn that b*tch!” Bette tweeted on Nov. 5. Bette, this is why we love you so.
For those of you who missed it, nude pics of Justin surfaced in Oct. and in a totally weird move, his dad Jeremy tweeted: “@justinbieber what do you feed that thing. #proud daddy”. Bette was among the grossed-out public and tweeted: “The biggest dick in this situation is the dad who abandoned his son.” In his Billboard interview, Justin then referred to her as “Britt Middler” and defended his dad: “I wanted to immediately say ‘Who is this lady?’, but then I’m just fueling this negativity. I do feel the photo was an invasion of my privacy. I felt super violated. My dad made light of it, but I don’t think that’s sick and twisted. It was funny. Dads are going to be dads.” Oookay, Justin.

Bette is one of the funniest celebs on Twitter. She recently gave a “reason” for the delay of a Hocus Pocus sequel (“Breaking news!! SEQUEL DELAYED!! @Disney having trouble finding a virgin! #HocusPocus”), but all we care about is that a conversation about a sequel is actually being had. More Twitter points for Bette!
HollywoodLifers, did Bette Midler win the internet today?
