There’s a time and a place for everything—as well, a person for everything too.
While R&B Soul Diva Patti LaBelle may be a fan 50 Cent’s In Da Club and of BET Uncut underground rapper Black Jesus’ Tell Me What That Thang Smell Like, that doesn’t mean she necessarily wants to know what YOURS ‘smell-like.’
Much to her horror, while at a show in Vancouver, the outspoken former Dancing With The Stars contestant who moonlights as an actress (American Horror Story) was just about to get mooned stage when some 21st century/social media-bred contraption took it upon her self himself to come undone at the seams.
time out to allow hopefuls to stand onstage to perform with her, somebody hadddddddddd to ‘2015’ the Lady Marmalade singer. Smh.
We’re fans of Ms. LaBelle as is she of OSF. And it’s like we say [about her], Ms. Patti is the youngest 71 year-young woman you’d ever want to meet but still, his moment was a clear case of [what I call] “2015-minded type of people” who know NOTHING outside of all KINDS of inappropriateness all for 15 minutes of fame anyway they can get it.
While Ms. LaBelle may have an affinity for vulgar rap music and all things our generation, one mustn’t forget she is in HER element when she commands that stage and kicks those shoes off to blast off.
Needless to Ms. Patti was QUITE taken aback (and even apologized for what just may fly out of her mouth–considering the scene right in front of her face).
“I need somebody bring some peace up in here. You know the devil was busy. The devil was here about 20 minutes ago. I saw it. I tried to block it. I’m so sorry you heard me say a bad word. I’m a Gemini, and things come out of my mouth sometimes.”
“I am 71 years young. I am not Nicki Minaj or that little Miley,” Ms. LaBelle had to remind the inappropriate fan.
At any rate.
Although Ms. Thing’s lil’ show came to a screeching halt before he got into the full swing of things, check out this two-left shoes of a moment:
That same kind of thing happened at an outdoor summer concert and myself and my girlfriend attended where old school legend Morris Day and the Time invited some fans up and this girl was all OUT of place–twerking and bent over all inappropriately for the song, the artist, the moment-all that. It was so out of left-field!.
He (well…Jerome…lol) threw her white-stained shorts wearing a%% off that stage so quick. Like LaBelle, Morris Day had to remind her that he was a grown man and his stage was a no twerk zone.
It was THEE most high on bath-saltzy, zombieish sh/it I’d ever seen in my life. Ugh. It was just disgusting (and let me make myself clear: on all fours…
At any rate.
In search of a quick 15 minutes, you HAVE know not to misappropriate the person or moment. Other people, stages and places-things like that go over well-but NOT with some artists…no matter HOW youthful they are.
In 2007 while lending her stage to some fans while in Kansas, (beginning around the 00:38 mark) some dude pushed up on her a little too close and when she called him on it, he proclaimed SHE wanted it more than him! LoL. She was APPALLED!
Trying to tread lightly because (as you’ll see on the video) she says understands how people can hurt you with words, but with all the respect, care, and empathy that she could muster: she HAD to take a moment to deal with him and his lil’ comment.
Although this too shall-eth passed, it sure as hell happened. Tap in and see for yourself:
