Have you ever wondered what goes on in the minds of your favorite R&B divas? If your answer is yes, than you’ll want to check out Patti LaHelle’s “Got 2B Real: A Diva Variety Show” featuring the likes of Mariah Carey, Beyonce, Patti Labelle, Mary J. Blige, and Aretha Franklin to name a few. The web series, now in its second season, is a YouTube sensation and cleverly uses parody to delve into the inner-workings of our favorite diva’s thoughts.
As the writer, editor and performer of the series Patti LaHelle uses lip-dubbing over real life footage. Just imagine hearing Aretha Franklin and Dionne Warwick verbally dissing one another. The use of quick one liners and “snaps” are the basis for LaHelle’s story lines which result in some pretty funny banter between the R&B stars.
In this episode called “Crispy Business” Mary J. Blige is the target of the divas criticism. Her controversial choice to sing about loving crispy chicken for a Burger King commercial does not sit well with the ladies. As a result, they let her have it. Rest assured Mary is not the only victim as all the ladies get a taste of their own “diva” medicine.
