On 14th September, Soul legend Patti LaBelle performed at some charity event where tickets were going for $200 a piece. The gig took place at the Gem Theater last friday, and a young man who was brought upon stage said something rather lustful and Patti LaBelle went off and cursed his ass the hell out!:
The crazy thing about it is that she harped on and on about it. Didn't even shut him down and keep it moving, she had to dwell on what he said to her which was "I think you want it more than I did" as well as proclaiming that she is not Lil Kim. Her tirade was also uncalled for and over the top. The look on his face said it all. Even though he was CLEARLY joking, I agree that it was in poor taste and he was way out of line. However, she could have handled the situation much better. Instead, she had to humiliate him for a further 3 minutes when she could be getting on with the show, then brought him back up to humiliate him some more. She should be appreciative that someone so young attended her show to see her get her granny on!
