When it comes to legendary women of soul, the first two names that come to mind are Patti LaBelle and Aretha Franklin. The two ladies have both helped kick open the door for black artists to flourish. However, somewhere with both women striving for success, there was some type of bad blood. How do we know? Well, at a recent concert, Aretha Franklin hit Patti LaBelle with so much shade, Patti thought hell might have actually frozen over.
The two legends were present at the White House’s “Women of Soul” concert over the weekend. Franklin entered the room to a standing ovation. On her way to her seat, Franklin passed LaBelle. LaBelle reached out her hand to the Queen of Soul and that hand was left high and dry. Aretha Franklin looked at Patti’s hand like, “Chile, you know I don’t mess with you.
Don’t try to get cute in front of these cameras.” As Franklin hit LaBelle with the side eye, she brushed past LaBelle and headed to her seat while still enjoying the adulation from the audience.
Since both of the women are almost as known for their shading moments as their voices, we wanted to ask you, who is the queen of shade throwing?
