Fun fact Friday The Ultimate Patti LaBelle "Patti & LaBelle the original Lady Gaga"In 1962, Patti LaBelle and the Bluebelles made their debut performance at the famed Apollo Theater. This girl group eventually evolved into LaBelle, the force behind "Lady Marmalade." Long before Lady Gaga and Madonna came along, Patti, along with Sarah Dash and Nona Hendryx, revolutionized music with their out-of-this-world space suits and over-the-top hairdos. Now, Patti looks back at her fashion risks and the disco anthem that defined an era. They also sang songs about sexuality, political issues as Patti's friend GaGa also does, they both support the gay community and have a huge gay fan base and they also both encourage to just be yourself, black, white, gay, straight doesn't matter we all are human beings. "I love GaGa, it's wonderful to be inspired by artists like her" Patti LaBelle Wendy Williams Show and here they both are in photos and a special spur of the moment performance by them at an event in New York City.
