Patti LaBelle Gives Mariah Carey Major Side-Eye After She Dropped ‘F’ Word During Performance

Posted On : April 9, 2019

During a stop on her Caution World Tour Mariah met up with Patti backstage in Patti’s hometown of Philadelphia and the two of them joined voices on an impromptu duet of Mariah’s song ‘With You’. Now, the duet starts off fine with the two legends blending voices and enjoying the vibe. However, there was one part of the song that Patti clearly wasn’t ready for and was left shocked when Mariah dropped the ‘F’ word while singing. And Patti’s reaction is equal parts priceless and hilarious. Mariah posted the clip to Instagram and it has been making people laugh for the past few days (Caution; explicit language)

Carey left her godmother stunned as she continued, “Ooh, I’m in love, it’s true. Yeah, damn, I f**ks with you.” LaBelle immediate gasped and asked Carey, “Oh, you say F with you?” Once Carey confirmed the explicit word’s presence in the song, she joked, “See, she didn’t know I said that! Cut it out!”

The look on Patti’s face resembled that of an Auntie utterly appalled after hearing her niece curse for the first time. It’s a very cool moment between two highly respected legends in the game who clearly have a whole lot of love and respect for one another.
