Lady Gaga: “I Didn’t Know About Bette Midler’s Performance.”

Lady Gaga claimed that she didn’t know about Bette Midler‘s performance- the one where she’s dressed as a mermaid while in a wheelchair.

Lady Gaga recently performed a similar performance in Australia, and Bette claimed that Gaga copied her performance.

Here’s what Gaga had to say about that:

“I had no idea that she did that and I’m a huge Bette Midler fan. … It was not a Midler tribute in the beginning … because I didn’t know that she’d done [it], 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. All I’ll say is that I … admire her and find her to be one of the most brilliant and incredible performers, so that’s all I’ll say.”

That’s nice of Gaga to say, but it is a little weird that she happened to wear a mermaid tail in a wheelchair and NOT get it from someone who had done it before.

Mermaid and wheelchair in a performance is just a little random.

But even if she did copy Bette, at least Gaga admits that she admires her.

After all, what performer doesn’t admire Bette Midler?!
