Bette Midler on Twitter – Lady Gaga Stole My Act

Lady Gaga made her fair share of enemies last week when she performed in a wheelchair during a concert in Sydney, Australia.

Now she appears to have ticked off Bette Midler as well. Over the weekend, the Divine Miss M sent a number of hostile tweets at Gaga, accusing the ‘Born This Way’ singer of stealing her act.

“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,” she tweeted Friday, referring to an outfit she donned as part of a Las Vegas show.

Midler followed with a series of tweets on Saturday, saying, “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 … Ive been doing singing mermaid in a wheelchair since 1980-You can keep the meat dress and the firecracker.”

So was Midler serious? Maybe not: “Let’s drink this over at the Emmys in September. Fabulous mermaids can coexist!” she tweeted Sunday. Both ladies are nominated for their televised concert specials.
