Patti LaBelle Tosses Stripping Fan from Concert: ‘I am Not Nicki Minaj’
During her performance of “Lady Marmalade,” Patti pulled up several members of the audience to the stage to join her in dancing during the song.
However, when a male fan in the group started to unbutton his shirt, Patti warned him, “Don’t you dare, not on my stage.” When he continued his flirtatious behavior, Patti had him tossed.
LaBelle, who is famously known to kick off her shoes into the audience during performances told the man in no uncertain terms that she had no time for his nonsense.
I am 71-years-young. I am not Nicki Minaj or that little, uh, Miley [Cyrus].
At one point, Patti yelled at the man, “Get off my goddamn stage, bitch!” an outburst for which she later apologized to the rest of the audience.
