Ok, first, I was watching "Living it Up with Patti Labelle." That is such a good show, simply because it's all about Patti. The episode last night was her with Mo'Nique at G. Garvin's restaurant. (I also LOVE Mo'Nique! BTW). Mo'Nique was talking about how she saw Patti at some show when she was like 17 (I turned the channel on a little late and missed some of it) and Patti allowed a fan to come up on stage and get a hug. Mo'Nique was saying how impressed she was and how she loves Patti. Patti, wonderful woman that she is, was so touched that she had tears! Patti is the freaking WOMAN! She was so encouraging! And she had brought Mo'Nique a gift! Ms. Labelle is IT!
Then, I was watching the tribute to her on UPN. Uh...besides the fact that she had a "pound of Vaseline" on her legs--according to my mother--Patti looks phenomenal to be 60! Wow! And yes, she's REALLY nice. I mean, to allow Ashanti to "sing" onstage with her, what a BIG HEART she must have! LOL! Because c'mon, raise your hand if you HONESTLY think that Ashanti can even STAND on the same stage as Patti Labelle! oh, and MY group, Boyz II Men still sound FANTABULOUS! Uh...my first MAJOR celebrity crush (don't joke me. but y'all know how I am, I don't care anyway!) though: Wanya? Did he gain some marriage weight or is it just me? Wow! But still a cutie! Yeah, about him, though, let's get a different wardrobe. Now I realize that BIIM isn't as in demand as they once were so we see them sort of sporadically (though I don't know why. I STILL love them) but the last 2 or 3 times I've seen him, Wanya has had the same outfit on, basically! Dark jacket, white shirt and jeans with tennis shoes! Boo, what's up with that? Just wanted to get that off my chest! Oh yes and Nelly just seems to get finer and finer! (because I was NOT on him when he first came out! Maybe he's one of those "the older the better" kind of dudes.) But back to the subject at hand, Patti Labelle, now she is hotness personified!
