Patti LaBelle Addresses The Questlove SoulFood Feud On The Meredith Vieira Show!
Questlove‘s ongoing soulfood feud (soul-feud?) with soul legend Patti LaBelle AKA Sweet Ol’ Lady Marmalade–immortalized just last month in an OKP original animation by Hectah–has gone viral on the internets. And now it has made it to the slightly less-small screen of network TV, thereby going the opposite of viral. To get specific, Ms. Patti LaBelle addressed the beef (turkey sausage, really) on an interview on The Meredith Vieira Show which aired today, when MV put her on the hot-seat about it–with a clip of our animation!
Though this has not resolved the situation, we do have a renewed round of promises from Ms. LaBelle (“I got you Questlove”) as well as some juicy tidbits about how she not only cooked for Mick Jagger and the Rolling Stones but also took their money at cards, not to mention the time Elton John–then her piano player–stole her tupperware and had to pay her back in diamonds. True story. All that is just a side order to the main dish here, which is clearly: Okayplayer was mentioned on The Meredith Vieira Show! If that was not unlooked-for pop culture propers enough, the sweetest words we heard all day were actually auto-generated in text form by a twitter algorithm: “Patti LaBelle favorited your Tweet.” Watch below for the full segment(s) and stay tuned to OKP TV to discover if our hero will indeed ever get the candied yams he so richly deserves.
