Singer Bette Midler has told off Lady Gaga for copying her mermaid in a wheelchair routine during a recent performance.
Midler, 65, took to her Twitter page to slam Gaga, 25, for the act and to tell her that there is only one mermaid on wheels – and it’s her.
“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,” Radar Online quoted her as writing.
“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,” she said.
And she completed her war of words with an amusing warning.
“Dear @ladygaga I’ve been doing singing mermaid in a wheelchair since 1980 - You can keep the meat dress and the firecracker t*ts - mermaid’s mine,” she stated.
