Soul legend Patti LaBelle, 73, posed for photos outside the Good Morning America studios in New York City where she promoted the 2nd season of Patti LaBelle's Place on the Cooking Channel.

An emotional Patti dedicated her hit song "You Are My Friend" to her dear friend, Aretha Franklin, during a concert at the Dell Music Center on Thursday. Franklin's life was celebrated by 23 musical acts in a star-studded funeral in Detroit over the weekend. Patti was not among them.

Pop singer Justin Bieber enjoyed a morning out with his fiancée Hailey Baldwin and friends. Justin and Hailey looked smitten as they held hands while walking down the street with friends before heading back to their hotel.


Rapper Nipsey Hussle, 33, and his longtime girlfriend Lauren London, also 33, enjoyed a date Night at Catch LA in West Hollywood on Friday. The on-again, off-again couple share a 1-year-old son, Kross Asghedom, and Lauren has a 8-year-old boy, Cameron Carter, with rapper Lil Wayne.

    Justin that mustache Issa NO

  • MoniquetheGeek

    I like that coat Patti!

    I think Nipsey and Lauren are husband and wife. It's something about Nipsey...he's just so sexy! And Lauren's fine. They make a beautiful couple.

  • Karen Brady

    I didn't know Patti has a cooking show, and that coat is probably what Gary wit da Tea would call: "On the high end you say Watermelon and on the low end you say beautiful pink". Nice color Patticake! Justin looks filthy per usual. Lauren my cutie looks yummy!

  • Karen Brady

    Thought it was just me.... YES HE IS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Love them together.

  • Karen Brady

    with a touch of pork flavoring..... Log out Trace. Just log on out. Come back in another post sis. Too early in the week for this kind of mess.

  • the guest

    Nipsey and Lauren are a beautiful couple.

    Justin and Hailey are proud unapologetic blissfully happy super rich white trash.


    MY NANA Patti!! Doesn't she look like she smells like peach cobbler and LOVE!!

    Justine and Hailey........

    Nip and New New still doesn't still well with me......TBH, I've looked at Ms. London differently from the day I found out she had a baby with Weezy!

  • Karen Brady

    Nipsey and Lauren are a beautiful couple. Agreed.

  • Karen Brady

    I know ppl break/make up on a dime but didn't Lauren and Nipsey put out a 'statement' just weeks ago about splitting? I'm sure he has a nice package (*clears throat*) so do your thang New-New.. I ain't mad one bit.

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    One thing about that older generation is that they took care of themselves. Patti, Angela Bassett, Gladys, all look good. The younger generation is looking a little rough. We should learn more from our elders.

  • Vegas1989

    Where did Hailey get those high waisted ash jeans? I had a pair of these in the 8th grade....LOL

  • Ni Ni

    I love me some gary wit da tea.


    Pattie looks damn good baby......

  • bemetoo

    pattie is one of the last of a dying breed

  • Karen Brady

    I have a few pair.. that cut is called 'boyfriend'. It's nice sometimes not to have to wear the typical booty/thigh/gut/everything all squeezed up jean. :-).

  • Karen Brady

    Okay!!! He stay having us keep somebody in our prayers. This morning it was Serena for her catsuit chile. LOLLLLL

  • dru and neil

    Patti is looking good, slimming down, I guess folks saw Gladys and followed suit. Justin and his fiancé are really trying to bring back 90s fashion. Don’t know much about Nipsey Hustle, don’t even know if I’ve ever heard any of his music at all. Lauren London.

  • Dee

    Patty cooking with those long nails made we turn the channel ?

  • CoTToNCaNDie SWeeTAsGolD

    I just spit fruit all over my keyboard!!!! The pork flavoring just DID IT. I'm on tha floor!!!! And you are done, no more comments from you today!!! lmaooooffffff!!!!!

  • MJF

    Lauren London is effortlessly beautiful. Nip is lucky!

  • dru and neil

    They seem to be the go to jeans for Issa on Insecure as well.

  • Karen Brady

    *chuckles* I hear you.

  • ramosyo

    Those 2 kids sucked the life out of Lauren’s tits? Nipsey look like an old man dried up and his chains needs a cleaning fr!

  • iWasteTime

    Patti and Lauren look good!
    I love me some Patti ...

  • Karen Brady

    Yep! They sure do.

  • justlooking

    Nobody was going to be checking for Patti at the Funeral, so she had to shine somewhere else...But no before the Queen. NOPE

  • justlooking

    iono nderstand that....HONEY....does she scrub them after each use of the powder room.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Mr. Hussle and Ms. London are maybe could be married I read over the weekend.

  • Karen Brady


  • iWasteTime

    I believe it.
    They both have been wearing rings.
    I think the last time she posted them, rings showed ...

  • WhoYouTalkingAbout

    Ms LaBelle said she is NOT dead LOL

  • Rayne

    I saw a meme over the weekend it had Patti bringing a pie to the Aretha’s funeral. With the caption ?? DONT bring those dry ass pies over here??

  • justlooking

    Yeah, I saw that....said they go married last month. Congrats either way. I like them both.

  • FukkFolks2018

    They wearing matching rings in pic above they zoomed in on. She is notoriously private. We wont know until she is ready to tell us. If so and if true I am SOOO happy for them.

  • Kimocha

    Patti, Gladys and even Diana Ross definitely know how to turn the cheek because as far as I know Aretha has NEVER cared much for ANY of these ladies.... but they all seemed to ignore her hateful comments and actions over the decades and still respected her and never said anything negative back about her.... But from my understanding Aretha didn't like NOBODY.... and let them ALL KNOW IT too.....

  • Rayne

    Ctfu!! ???

  • iWasteTime

    I am too!! I like them both!

  • FukkFolks2018

    My FAVE Re Gif. That one and when she is putting down that pocketbook and mosey'n on to the festivites.

  • KcoolMuziq

    Lauren London(Whom I worked in her movie"This Christmas")husband Nipsey well deserved slap this year before The BET Awards was a comical site to see.

  • stav

    Justin's relationship couldn't be more fake, every pic looks like they called the Paps to take it. Why is every moment captured on camera?

  • Floriduhh Evans

    Does anyone know what started Patti and Aretha’s beef?

  • Ni Ni

    I keep missing him when i get in the car lately. If i don't hear his voice, i keep it moving for the most part.

  • justlooking

    I said what I said.

    Grabs soap to warsh out your mouth

  • justlooking
  • FukkFolks2018

    All other ones are traceable. Except that one. I think dick. Still my vote

  • SandraRose

    You know it was over a man. ?

  • cherrypie

    And aint liked each other since lol

  • dru and neil

    Looks cute on her, I like her wardrobe on the show.

  • Kimocha

    Because Patti could sing and that was a threat to Aretha.... any damn body that could sing.... From Patti, Gladys, Whitney, Barbara Striesand, even Roberta Flack... smdh

  • FukkFolks2018

    I think with Dennis Edwards who was with Aretha or Otis Williams who was engaged to Patti. Only male link I could ever find.

  • Karen Brady

    *sniggles* New-New said her man like it and that's all that matters!

  • Rayne

    Lol ?

  • Rayne

    Lmfao ????

  • Karen Brady

    Yeah her stylist is on point.

  • Karen Brady

    LOL... I hear you.

  • Logan Roberts

    Patti has always been so well put together & Lauren will always be a cutie.

  • Judge Mental Will

    Hailey and Justin look old in the face.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920


  • Chicagowise

    Patti and Aretha weren't friends. Patti was friendly and cordial with Aretha. In return, Aretha acted like constipated witch.

  • SayWhatNow?

    Really?? I don't know what this says about me but I likey! Minus the chains....

  • SayWhatNow?

    Yes I'm over here licking my lips that boy is FINE!

  • Mirella

    Patti, you look amazing! And I'm happy to see Bieber looking relaxed.

  • Li-Wright

    There's a video of Patti online where she says she talked to Aretha's sister in law and Aretha wanted her to sing at the funeral. I'll try to find it. Anyway, we don't know their relationship. Nobody knows but those two.
    Okay here it is:

  • Gloria

    Because they are celebrities

  • Shira Harding-James

    I’m weak!

  • Alicia.Ashe

    Them tits sure are saggy Lauren, hate those shoes Patti, is it true for awhile Nipsey was still sleeping with his first babymomma and Lauren???

  • Roderick2011

    No, no we wore those acid washed jeans in the 80's because I graduated high school in 1990.

  • Victorious82

    I read a biography on her last week and this is true. Aretha didn’t like any women singers and couldn’t keep stay constant friends with anyone male or female. She fell in and out with everyone in her life.

  • GrapeCrush

    She took issue when Natalie Cole first hit the scene too. People were calling her the new queen of soul and Aretha wasn’t having it, lol!









  • Jussjess25

    Lauren is playing the rider chick.. until his skinny ass decides to marry her one day smh

  • Malcom Flex

    MISS PATTI LABELLE is another black living legend I got nathan but LOVE. Go ahead, ma!!!

  • missmiami305

    Lauren’s babydaddy is a reflection of how she views herself.

  • FukkFolks2018

    She got big dick energy then. And most likely a big ego

  • imright

  • Alextra Ballard

    And that's not a good look...smh

  • Alextra Ballard

    Yess Ms. Labelle looks well!

  • Alextra Ballard

  • Alextra Ballard

    Scrollin byke up!

  • Dahl

    Patty Patty looks great!!! For some reason, I’m glad to see Lauren and Nipsey together again. She has an obvious type and he fits it, so good for her. Don’t care about the pasty story in between...

  • missmiami305

    He looks dirty. Nothing about him is attractive. He looks like the streets.

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    Justin Beiber looks like A Gary Busey Nick Nolte offspring.. His fiance looks like Florence Jean Castlebary!

  • Soon2BWife

    I used to think Lauren was so pretty. Her baby daddies tainted her. Justin and his soon 2 b look like pre-meth addicts.

  • che’lint

    ? I think so too.?

  • Soon2BWife

    Baby daddies, don’t forget that walking drug receptical calling himself weezy f. Baby

  • Soon2BWife

    Your grandmother walking to the front of the room to say the departing prayer from the 3 day family reunion. She has on her traveling suit.

  • Kimocha

    They called her the Lady Of Soul... (not the Queen) but Aretha even got mad at that... It was like Natalie said... She didn't call herself that.... the media did...smh

  • Li-Wright

    There was no beef between Patti and Aretha. Did Patti write that in her autobiography? I don't remember reading that. If you know"sisters", like me and my sister, we never speak to each other and we're both in our 60s+. We have argued and avoided each other throughout life, but we still love each other. If anything happened to her, I would be there.

  • Li-Wright

    You don't know that! Where did you read that! What's your source?

  • Kim’s Original Face

    Lauren and Nipsey are cute.

    Come on auntie Patti

  • Kimocha

    I read celebrity biographies and I read Patti's, Gladys's, Natalie's and even read Aretha's where she is actually hating on people in her own damn book! She was insecure and petty... Period!

  • Michelle

    What’s wrong with “saggy” titties?? They notnsagging they’re REAL. The only women who have 2 kids and breast don’t sag is women with implants or women with small breast. Grow tf up

  • nellboogie

    Especially, when Nat hit it big with "This will be..." which was a song originally written for Aretha that she passed on...

  • Kimocha

    Yep!.... Natalie killed that song!

  • Yoni7

    He does.....and throw Jim Carey in there somewhere.

  • Yoni7

    me and my sister, we never speak to each other and we're both in our 60s+.
    +1 My sister and I haven't spoken since maybe 2007-08....and we're both in our 40's. I pray SHE finds healing.

    What's yalls "beef" about? Who's the oldest?

  • Yoni7

    Says who?

  • Joi Williams

    Nipsey is about that Money! Google The Marathon.
    Bad Boy turned Business Exec! I love him and Lauren together.
    Nothing like a hood nigga turned Legit!!

  • Bdot

    Kross Asghedom

    Whatchu say?

  • FukkFolks2018

    Im still listening to that and the new one Victory Lap. He is everything. fave West coast artist right now.

  • Miss Thang

    She was deeply insecure, but I give her a pass because I think she was very deeply sensitive and had a horrible childhood. She was very strong to deal with the things she went through in life.

  • Miss Thang

    except Smokey Robinson. He's the only friend she kept for a lifetime.

  • cheechee1x1

    I read Gladys's, Natalie's, Pattie's and Aretha's autobiographies and Aretha was the one giving other diva the cold shoulder. Aretha was very petty in her treatment of other woman with real talent. The Queen was human. Imagine that!!! In later years Pattie and Aretha buried the hatchet and became friends.

  • Li-Wright

    This so-called BEEF with Patti by Aretha....reminds me of Britney Spears and so-called beef with Christina....and Lil Kim beef with other female rappers. A lot of times it's nothing more than the record comp's or the publicist trying to start stuff to get pr. I'm sure later in life whatever happened between Patti and Aretha was cleaned up when they reached their 40s 50s and 60s. I've seen all 3 on Oprah's show and appearing together on other shows together. So whatever happened in their 20s between them was over with by the time they reached their 40s.

  • Alicia.Ashe

    Everything is wrong with them, you smell like mayonnaise go take a bath.

  • Allihave2say

    Has anyone ever seen Ms. Patti's real hair?
    Justin looks like a heroin addict.

  • Allihave2say

    All the money and opportunity and Justin went from fresh clean cut cute kid to white trash with wealth. I do think the media played a huge role in his demise calling him a lesbian and other derogatory comments, along with being abused in the music industry. Maybe it's better make your coins off Youtube than full blown industry.

  • Allihave2say

    So far we haven't seen him kissing any man….
