Why is Bette Midler hating on Dubai?
A-list star declares that 'nothing could get me to go #Dubai' in a tweet
Hey!!! What's up Bette? Why wouldn't you want to come to lovely Dubai? Why are you being so negative about our lovely Emirate?
We were a little surprised when singer, songwriter, actress, comedian, film producer and all-round superstar, Bette Midler, took a pop at our beloved Dubai. In, what seemed like a random tweet, on Sunday, she declared: "Nothing would ever get me to go to #Dubai. NOTHING."
What's brought on this rather rude comment? We would love you to explain yourself...as would many many others it would seem. Bette's comment received a fair bit of interest, with hundreds of retweets, favourites and replies...including many asking her: why?
Of course, there were many who agreed with her (probably the ones who don't have a passport) but an equal amount sticking up for our great Emirate. We think it's only right that we join them in convincing Bette that she should visit. Drop her a tweet @BetteMidler and tell her why she should in fact be #LovinDubai.
Don't forget to include our @lovidubai handle so we can retweet our favourites.
Here's some of the responses so far...
