It is no secret that Patti LaBelle is a force to be reckoned with. In fact, her no-nonsense approach is one of the reasons her fans love her.
So it should come as no surprise that when when she noticed a fan dancing in a sexually explicit way and stripping on stage — she shut him down on the spot.
“Hold on. Hold up,” Ms. Patti yelled. “Don’t you dare. Not on my stage. No, thank you.”
When a security guard attempted to jump in to help, she stopped him by saying, “I got this. I got this!” Then, she proceeded to remind everyone who they were dealing with.
“I am 71-years-young. I am not Nicki Minaj or that little Miley,” she continued as the audience cheered on. However, the enthusiastic (and perhaps inebriated) fan showed no remorse for offending the diva and proceeded to twerk as she spoke. That’s when LaBelle lost her cool and let him have it.
“Oh, no! Get off of my Goddarn stage, b*tch!” she yelled as she shoulder bumped him. “And stay off! Put him out of the building! Put him out. How dare you.”
The fan was whisked away in the blink of an eye, and once LaBelle regained her composure, she apologized to those in attendance.
“I’m sorry I didn’t let my security do what he had to do earlier,” she acquiesced. “I need somebody to bring some peace up in here. You know the devil was busy. The devil was here about twenty 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.”
