After performing onstage dressed as a mermaid and riding in a wheelchair, Lady Gaga received a gentleÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â reminder from Bette Midler that she had done it first.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â After getting no response, she issued a less gentle reminder.
On Midler’s TwitterÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â page. the entertainer first said “I’m not sure @ladygaga knows that I’ve performed my mermaid in a wheelchair for millions of people — and many of them still alive.” A harmless acknowledgement with a sense of humor. Midler even brought back the character in her recent concert tour. (then, below that, the Gaga video)
Anyhoo… while imitation is the sincerest form of flattery…Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â when the tweet was met with no response from Gaga, Midler gave it another try..
MidlerÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â and Gaga might have reconciled… again judging from the Twitter activity. MidlerÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â recently tweeted, “@ladygaga let’s drink this over at the Emmys in September. Fabulous mermaids can coexist!”
