Lady GaGa Dishes The Dirt On Sex, Drugs & Luc Carl
As actress Bette Midler accuses GaGa of copying her wheelchair routine...
Bette Midler accused the eccentric songstress of copying her mermaid-wheelchair routine at a gig in Sydney, Australia last week.
Midler attacked GaGa on Twitter, telling her followers: "I'm not sure Lady GaGa knows that I've performed my mermaid in a wheelchair for millions of people - and many of them are still alive…"
"Dear Lady GaGa 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. (sic)"
She added: "Dear Lady GaGa I've been doing singing mermaid in a wheelchair since 1980 - You can keep the meat dress and the firecracker t**s - mermaid's mine."
Lady G has since responded to Bette's accusations, telling Access Hollywood: "I had no idea that she did that and I'm a huge Bette Midler fan. I didn't know that she'd done [it], but I do now and I think it's great,"
The Edge Of Glory singer concluded: "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."
