Patti LaBelle, hailed as "the Grandmother of Soul," is beloved by fans for her incredible voice and no-nonsense attitude. Right up there with Aretha Franklin and Gladys Knight, LaBelle is a legend of R&B and soul. When the talented singer-songwriter made an appearance on The Tyra Banks Show, her sassiness was on full display.
Patti LaBelle is considered by many to have the persona of a tough but loving mother figure, along with being known for her hilarious facial expressions that show exactly how she feels in any given moment. This moment on Tyra Bank's tv show is no different!
A Hilarious Patti LaBelle Moment
In the clip, Tyra Banks is hosting "Hungry Girl" Lisa Lillien on her talk show, who is giving a presentation of her cupcakes. Patti LaBelle picks up one of the cupcakes, saying "this has paper on it," to which the chef responds in a condescending tone, "yea, you can't eat the paper."
As the chef continues to explain the process and ingredients of her cupcakes, which include cake mix and hot cocoa powder, LaBelle rolls her eyes, communicating just how she feels about being shut down so rudely. The audience members erupt into laughter, which the chef attempts to ignore as she continues her cupcake spiel.
Eventually, Tyra Banks brings the attention back to LaBelle, asking "what is Patti sayin over there?" LaBelle finally has her say, exclaiming to the chef "what makes you think I think I could eat the paper, boo?!" The chef laughs and reiterates that you indeed cannot eat the paper, adding "paper bad, cake good."
