Lady Gaga weighs in on the Bette Midler mermaid controversy

HollywoodNews.com: So Lady Gaga performed as a mermaid in a wheelchair in Australia and it didn’t go over well with Bette Midler who, everyone in the world knows, originated this more than 30 years ago.

Everyone but Gaga it seems.

“I had no idea that she did that and I’m a huge Bette Midler fan,” she told Billy Bush this week. “… But I do now and I think it’s great. Obviously I feel connected to women in theater and women from the past…Maybe we’re just cut from the same cloth. I couldn’t hop around in that tail so I just stuck myself in a wheelchair.”

The Divine Miss M decided to publicly scold Gaga via Twitter: “I’m not sure @ladygaga knows that I’ve performed my mermaid in a wheelchair for millions of people — and many of them are still alive…..”

And this tweet: “Dear @ladygaga if you think a mermaid in a wheelchair seems familiar-it’s because it is!You can see it on youtube 24/7-with ME performing it”
