Aretha Franklin Shades Patti LaBelle


Over the weekend the White House held a Women of Soul concert as part of the "In Performance at the White House" series featuring Aretha Franklin, Patti LaBelle, Jill Scott, Janelle Monae and Ariana Grande.

You would think for just one day Aretha Franklin could contain her distaste for Patti LaBelle...

As Aretha Franklin strolled into the concert hall Patti Labelle reached out to grab Aretha's hand and the side eye and deliberate avoiding of hands Aretha served Ms. Patti was chilly enough to freeze the entire room.

Aretha is the Queen of Soul. She is a living legend and can do whatever she wants! #Detroit

Damn Aretha what is wrong with you? Do you have to be like that? You must watch too much Gotz To Be Real or something. You're taking their shade way too serious. She can't help the person over there is her biggest fan.

If Iooked as sloppy as unkempt as Aretha, Id be pissed too. They re close in age, & Patti is always looking good. Aretha, not so much!

Aretha is too damn old for this nonsense.

I honestly dont like either one of these women and have heard stories about both being crappy divas but wow...Aretha show some class at least ONCE in your life.

I remember I saw her once...somewhere...I cannot remember. Just out and about. Anyhoo she was EATING A CAULDRON OF BLACK EYED PEAS lamenting about how she hates to fly.

I bullshit you not. This big fat long tittied heffa was EATING PEAS in PUBLIC, taking HUGE spoonfuls inside her pie eating mouth.

Just tacky is as tacky toes.

Yall remember when Bey said that Tina Turner was the queen of sould and Aretha got pissed off? LOL

Chile Please... Patti Labelle is FLAWLESS... Aretha Franklin is only 2 years older than her but looks more like 20 yrs older.

Aretha can have several seats cause Patti is QUEEN and has kept it together ALL these years...

Patti tried to keep it cute but you cant take the hood out some people!

Aretha can BOW DOWN or BOW OUT...

LOL...

Come on Hateretha.......its just a show. GOTS2BREAL was just a show. Well maybe that's why Patti s voice is still the manager that little baby jesus was born in and a constant stay in her diaphragm. She's a miracle. The miracle you use to be.

You honestly never know how or where their beef started; and just because one person gets over something doesn't mean the other party is willing to putti in the past. I'm kinda with Aretha on this one, if she doesn't like her she doesn't like her. Why be phony? White house or not. Ms. Patti is quite famous for being nice nasty as well, she's just better at hiding her phony with a smile, Aretha doesn't even care enough to front.

Anonymous said...

it's kinda a shame that the so-called "icons" of this generation....beyonce, rihanna, nicki....will take the place of patti and aretha as the black "divas" once they die, cause there won't be no one else in the mainstream tptb will let shine.

Well I lived there after i finished college and know how disgusting Detroit is. Regardless of how well you and your husband are doing (which is great by the way), Detroit is still a cesspool. Continue to do well and just keep the filth off your porch.

Anonymous said...

Unless the title of the "Queen of Soul" comes with some crown jewels, a gold scepter, a throne, and the right to scream "off with their heads," both these biddies need to clam down because it's not that serious. I met Patti randomly on the street, and she came across as a very nice woman (called me "sweetie"). I'm sure both are prone to diva behavior, but you don't bring that BS into the White House.

Who gives a shit about both of these old, raggedy bitches being icons, legends, queens? Bottom line both are shady ass relics who wouldn't know feminity if it hit them in the face with a bag of fashion fair makeup.

Patti is OVERRATED, period. Her voice is annoying and she makes it a point to try and over sing everyone. I remember she tried that with Cindi Lauper on some music show, lol. MUCH TO MY SURPRISE, CINDI HELD IT DOWN. THAT CHICK CAN SING FOR REAL.

Aretha lost her voice years ago and she hasn't really had a hit in years but for some reason she still thinks her outlandishly tacky behavior is acceptable because she was given some chitlin circuit title of The Queen of R&B. Please.

3:33, back in the day the "black exodus" took many blacks out of the South to places like NYC, Kansas City, Chicago, Cleveland and Detroit because the job opportunities were great. Detroit was a MAJOR employer there because of all of the car factories (this is when america was more build on facotry industry businesses).

Many of these factories have shut down, hence putting thousands of folks out of a job and since this type of job didn't require any diploma, most folks with and without high school diplomas were shit out of luck because there were no other jobs that didn't require degrees paying that much money. So many folks were losing their homes, cars, etc.

Detroit has never recovered from the auto industry going belly up (Flint either) and that is why the city is going to or already has filed bankruptcy.

Detroit and Flint are only two socially and economically strapped cities in the state of Michigan. To judge an entire state based off of two cities is ignorant. I live in Bloomfield Hills, MI and my neighborhood is luxurious. Some of the Pistons, Lions, and Tigers players live within the vicinity of my neighborhood. The problem is that Wayne (Detroit) county and Genessee (Flint) county were dependent solely on the automobile industry as someone said in here earlier. You can't expect a city (Detroit) that has been in ruins for six decades to stand out as a tourist spot like other midwestern and east coast cities. I get so tired of people speaking on things that they haven't witnessed or researched. I can name two cities, at least, for every other state in America that is on the same "level" as Detroit and Flint.

I am from Detroit and don't like Aretha's holier than thou uppity ass, but she is not wrong here. Patty is clearly trying to put herself in the position of receiving more than everyone else "on the line" and Aretha ain't got time for that. She treated everyone equally to stroll down the line, smile and make eye contact with those clapping for her. Patty's arrogant ass reaching out to get a hand touch was clearly out of line! I pray for the blind cause most bitches can't see the truth to save their lives.

I'm gonna give Aretha the benefit of the doubt and say from the very first moment she entered that room she already looked like she didn't want to be there, so maybe she didn't recognize it was Pattie as she was walking through and thought it was a just a fan trying to grab her, like many fans try to do when they see a celebrity.

No need for the benefit of the doubt. Aretha's perch sits firmly under clouds. It's not the first time she's shaded Patti. She has a long history of being nasty towards other artists. Her actions during the VH1 Divas show she performed on was legendary. Aretha is the kind of person that if a light is shinning she expects it to only be on her and can't find an ounce of civility towards anyone who is in the light.

Aretha has shaded a handful of diva's like she's threatened that they are coming for her imaginary throne or something . She's way too old to still be acting like this.

I can't watch the video on my phone but after Beyonce said welcome the Queen at the Grammy's, Aretha's true colors showed. Aretha got mad and released a statement that she was the only queen. Beyonce didn't call her the queen of soul, she said the queen. Which Tina is, the queen of rock and roll. Anyway Tina did an interview which you can google where she spilled the Tea. She said Aretha has always been like that. There you have it. Aretha is just not a nice person *shoulder shrug*

You fools spend your money on Beyonce, Nikki Minaj and the likes of them! I feel sorry for your watered down generation. This woman has the gift of god when she sings. She never showed puss to sell a album or give a lap dance on stage at an awards show. The word is legend and class. Freaking fools.

I love how people have this notion that if a person is talented or a "legend" then they have the right to treat people like crap.

Miss Aretha Franlkin is the "Critically Acclaimed" 1st Lady of Soul, Queen of Soul, Lady Soul, "UNDISPUTED" Queen of Soul, Queen Of The Blues, Best In Jazz 62', Declared the Greatest Female Vocalist If All Time, Declared Greatest Voice PERIOD of the 20th Century, Most influential and Impactful Female Album Of All Time 67'and the Greatest Gospel Album Of All Time 72'! And the list goes ON and ON with Aretha! Patti is NOT on Aretha's level! Patti has always been jealous of Aretha's Crown, Throne and Aretha's Queendomship!

Patti who has been seen on National TV "Runnin' Off At The Mouth as usual about Aretha and Diana making the most outlandish and condensending remarks about Aretha! Aretha and Patti are not Friends! Patti's Fake Kindness and Nice Nastyness just aint go' cut it with the Queen!

As Queen Aretha walks the Red carpet Isle like the Ace#1 Boss Diva that she is HEADLINING the event, everyone applauds the Queen and NOBODY touches Aretha but IMMATURE ASS PATTI! Aretha ignores Patti's RIDICULOUS ASS and Patti begins to grabb on Aretha like a damn OCTOPUS! Patti is hoping that Aretha STOPS and HOLD HER HAND and HUG her ON CAMERA before Aretha goes to the stage! U are mothafuckin ridiculous Patti!

Queen Aretha showed the world that she is way above and beyond the pattiness of Patti Labelle's SCREECHY, SCREAMIN AND NOISY ASS VOICE and Patti's shannanagans! The Mighty Mighty Queen Aretha "Detroit" Franklin FADED Patti's Deep Dish Ass OUT COMPLETELY like only the Queen can! Aretha closes out the show with the President! U lose Patti! U go Queen ReeRee with the Royal Fade Away!

If you know anything about the white house your entrance, is your entrance and Patti obviously know nothing about such traditions.
And if anything, in Aretha's mind she showed a greater lack of respect and culture...further bolstering Aretha's distaste for Patti's behavior and not the person....that wasn't the time for a chit chat or a sista girl greeting... we belong that time has passed!!
