Patti LaBelle has some words of wisdom for up and coming music stars!
“I hate saying this but…keep your clothes on,” LaBelle said. “That’s all. You know, that talent will show if it’s in, you don’t have to do this and do that to show that.”
“I talk to a lot of young girls too. I’ve been a mentor to so many,” LaBelle continued. “Beyoncé, Mary J [Blige], God so many.”
One person who has definitely learned a lot from LaBelle? Mariah Carey.
“Mariah is my goddaughter. I had to slap her every now and then,” LaBella revealed. “She’s so phenomenal and so good, she doesn’t need to be slapped anymore. That’s my baby.”
Meanwhile, LaBelle also revealed she has a menacing alter-ego named Priscilla. “She’s ugly. She’s very, very bad girl. I don’t like her,” LaBelle dished. “She comes out whenever she has to.”
