TV Host Calls Sheila E Irrelevant For Prince Tribute, Sheila E FIRES BACK
Sheila E. has had it up to HERE! And we can’t say that we blame her either, because the lack of regard that was shown to her as well as other, soul artists, including Chaka Khan, The Time, Larry Graham, and others by “The Talk” TV show’s guest host/ musician, Linda Perry, was a tad bit insensitive when she was discussing the upcoming Madonna ‘Prince tribute’ at the Billboard Music Awards. Sheila E. was not having that though. See how Sheila E. blasted back at Linda Perry after Perry made these statements about her on national television…
LINDA PERRY'S 'IRRELEVANT' COMMENT ABOUT OLD SCHOOL SOUL ARTISTS
Linda Perry (pictured above) said that Sheila E., The Time, Chaka Khan, and we're assuming any other old school soul artists are too irrelevant to pay tribute to Prince at the upcoming Billboard Music Awards and that Madonna should do it:
“In all fairness, Madonna was asked to do this and she was friends with Prince but you also have to think about it’s really the Billboard Awards, they think about who is hot and popular. They’re not gonna call up Chaka Khan and re-put together The Time and Sheila E. because they’re not relevant right now," says Perry.That's not it!>>>
