Listen, if you think the legendary Patti LaBelle is anything like Nicki Minaj or Miley Cyrus, you’ve got another thing coming, kid! At least that’s what Patti made sure to let one risqué fan know…
During her Vancouver show on September 19, Patti LaBelle, 71, totally shut down a fan she invited onstage who took the opportunity to strip down a little for the “Lady Marmalade” legend. Her bottom line? Do not think that she’s anything like Nicki Minaj, 32, or that Miley Cyrus chick!
Patti was livid when one of the two fans she invited up on stage decided to take off some of his clothes and give her a little dance. She wasn’t the least bit amused with his strip tease, and stopped her number to let him have it in front of the entire audience!
“Don’t you dare; not on my stage. No baby!” Patti told the fan. “Let me say. I got this, I got this. Did I say I was 71 years young? I am not Nicki Minaj or that little Miley.”
She was not having it! Things escalated even further when the fan dared to turn his back on her and pretend he was about to take his pants off, too. Big no-no. “Oh no!” Patti said, pushing him. “Get off my god-darn stage, b—h, and stay off!”
Security immediately escorted him off stage to the cheers and screams of the audience, who applauded Patti for her epic slam! Her references to Nicki and Miley weren’t just random, either. Patti has spoken in the past about how she can’t stand the fact that the two wear skimpy outfits while performing. She let the fan know that she wasn’t going to have anything like that at one of her shows!
