Bette Midler uses Kim Kardashian selfie to make charity plea
During what will forever be known as the week Kim Kardashian, Bette Midler, Piers Morgan, Chloë Grace Moretz, Pink, and Amber Rose all wound up in the same news cycle, Midler used the kerfuffle over Kardashian’s naked selfie to promote her charity.
Tagging Kardashian directly in a tweet on Wednesday night, Midler wrote, “Put your selfie to work… for a good cause! Donate, RT, I’ll match $$ 2-1!” She included a link to Stages for Success, an organization started by Midler to “modernize outdated and dysfunctional public school auditoriums.”

Earlier this week, after Kardashian posted a naked selfie to Twitter, Midler joked, “Kim Kardashian tweeted a nude selfie today. If Kim wants us to see a part of her we’ve never seen, she’s gonna have to swallow the camera.” Kardashian later called Midler out for trying to be a “fake friend” and asked the actress and singer to “send nudes,” before adding #justkidding.
On Wednesday, before Midler tweeted about the charity, she joked on Twitter, “@KimKardashian wants me to send her my nudes! I’ll send them right over but the lighting’s bad right now since she threw all that shade!”
