Patti Labelle Comes For The ‘Heifers’
Aunt Patti is at it again!
Whatever you do, don’t call Patti Labelle a diva, she might smite you! In a recent interview, Patti sounded off on the term “diva” because she says the term is given to any ole’ heifer who can’t sing and one thing that can not be refuted is Patti’s vocal abilities!
“That word is used so loosely that I don’t even consider myself a diva. I always considered myself a woman who sings her heart out and who gives 120 percent. “Diva” is a word that I wouldn’t wanna call myself because it’s so loosely used. It’s not cute anymore,” she said in an interview with PrideSource. When asked if the word carries a negative connotation, the Grammy-award winning artist, responded “Yeah, because all these little heifers who can’t sing are called divas! It doesn’t mean anything to me and probably to some of the other ladies who have been doing it for as long as I have: Gladys Knight, Aretha Franklin, Dionne Warwick. You know, I’m speaking for me – I don’t know if they like to be called divas – but I know I wouldn’t call them divas, because it’s not in good company.”
