I don’t always agree with the popular opinion on things and I’m okay with that.  It is others that sometime have the problem with some f these opinions.  Okay, here goes:  First of all, I love Patti Labelle’s music.  I’ve been a fan of hers for years and have seen her in concert two or three times.  She really knows how to entertain her audience.  One of my favorite Patti songs is : “If Only You Knew”.

Recently, Patti appeared in Vancouver and asked a few of her fans to come up on stage to perform with her.  One of the fans took his performance a bit far when he began to take off his shirt.  Patti admonished him for being disrespectful and in the middle of that, the fan basically mooned Patti.  She rushed across stage and assaulted the fan and called him the word that rhymes with Mitch…..

SHAME ON YOU PATTI!!!  She absolutely had no right to lay her hands on this fan or anyone else AND he should sue her.  Okay, there we go:  He should definitely file a suit against her for humiliating him in front of this huge group of people.  One things for sure; nobody gets to lay their hands on another individual without that persons’ approval.  You watch the video and tell me what you think.  I love her music, but not this act that she pulled here.  Let me know what you think.


Here we go again.  I believe that this is what I’m supposed to post today.  This morning when I checked my inbox these two items appeared.  One was from loyal reader A. Renae (Patti Labelle’s first video – YOU ARE MY FRIEND) and the other was from Bible Gateway with my word for the day.  I think they go together.  Let this be your motivational moment for this day 5/21/2015.

1 Corinthians 1:10 NIV I appeal to you, brothers and sisters, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another in what you say and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly united in mind and thought.

Basically…. STOP TRIPPING!  Far too many people spend too much of their time in other people’s affairs looking for the negative things that they can find.  Another scripture asks the question:  How can you see the dust in someone else’s eye and not see the plank in your own.  This word of the day really motivated me today in so many ways.


aretha and patti
Several people asked me about this story and here’s your final answer. Aretha don’t play when it comes to lies that will damage her brand. So according to reports, she is now suing the satire news site that last week published the malicious story that she had gotten into a knock down drag out fight with Patti in Atlanta.
Aretha told the Detroit news:
“The stories were not presented as satire or humor. It was presented as a serious news story intended to depict me in a slanderous and derogatory way — defamation of character.”
Perhaps Aretha has an uphill battle with this one because the website, News Nerd, has a disclaimer describing the page as
purely satirical and for entertainment purposes only.
