Patti Labelle & Gladys Knight Talk Sh*t in Hilarious #VERZUZ Ad [Watch]

Published: Saturday 12th Sep 2020 by Rashad

‘Midnight Train to Georgia’ star Gladys Knight is pushing full steam ahead in her bid to be crowned winner of her forthcoming #VERZUZ battle against fellow R&B icon/friend Patti Labelle.

The divas set the net ablaze earlier this week when reports surfaced they would be the latest songstresses to spar hit-for-hit on the wildly popular social media platform, hosted by Swizz Beatz and Timbaland (as we reported here).

Ahead of its live showing Sunday (September 13), the legends – renown for throwing down on stage – threw down in the kitchen and sent warning shots to each other in a hilarious ad.

This battle is for the grown folks, kids!  See what we mean inside:

Once Patti Patti said this:


Miss Gladys clapped back with:

We love to see it!

All in good fun, the ads only amplify already seismic anticipation for the showdown which airs live on Instagram Sunday, September 13 at 5PM PT/8PM ET.

    I hope Gladys plays “On and On” and I hope Patti plays “System” by the Labelle.

    Black ppl are conditioned to only have one person of color on top. It has to be Mariah vs Whitney, Beyonce vs Rihanna, etc as the main stream media will only allow one black/person of color on top. It’s sad that black people and ppl of color accept this mindset and perpetuate it. Division has been engrained, smh.

      Oh B**** pleassseeee don’t say it’s black people! Whites do it to!

      Britney vs Christina
      Gaga vs Katy Perry
      Taylor vs Adele
      Ariana vs Selina Gomez
      JLo vs Mariah
      Jennifer Andiston vs Angelina Jolie

      So it’s not just black people. Now eat dirt and die trash.

        😏 Awww, did the truth set off a nerve. Black people have a history of pitting each of use against one another. And not just with music, but every aspect of life as well.

        That being said. I won’t even stoop to the name calling, because you already made it clear what you are with what you spewed. You have a good night.

    • Audreyherbsburn September 12, 2020

      And here you go feeding into it. A lighthearted competition, and here you go with the bs.

    • Nina September 13, 2020

      And yet here you are, with the same dry copy and pasted message.

    • Len75 September 12, 2020

      Ahhhh I went to Patti’s house twice for thanksgiving and that was the place to be. Omg the food was delicious!!!!

    I love them both, but I don’t see this having high ratings like brandy and the lady with rabbit teeth 🐰. This is the wrong platform for these legends

    • Ta September 12, 2020

      The audacity of you coming for Monica, all while stanning for Brandy’s ugly big face ass 🤣🤣🤣

    • Gag September 13, 2020

      Who cares if it hits 10000000 or not it will still have at least 100k

  6. September 12, 2020

    Legends, this is going to be nice.

  7. Fancy BISH September 12, 2020

    No flavor here just a couple of washed grannies.

    • Oh plz September 12, 2020

      Hey Marilyn, H0è…whoops, I mean Clarkson. I thought you were getting all the flavor from that BBC you’re always obsessing over.

      • Fancy BISH September 12, 2020

        SCREAMING 😂 ✅ 💯

    • Black Ja$mine, The REAL Princess Ja$mine Okurrr. September 13, 2020

      Fancy bi and Oh plz we know you are the same person so just stop it now.

  8. Fancy BISH September 12, 2020

    Black excellence! 💯 Two beautiful Queens 👑 with ALL the flavor! ❤️ I will be watching! 🤳🏽

    • Shayla Queen 👑 September 12, 2020

      The term “black excellence” just makes excellence in blacks seem a rare thing to find so I don’t endorse it. All this “woke” craziness that’s alleging to forward the black community is everything that’s damaging it.

      • Fancy BISH September 12, 2020

        Girl, shut up 😂

      • Fancy BISH September 13, 2020

        Shayla Queen you are so right I agree with you 100%

      • Shayla Queen 👑 September 13, 2020

        If black excellence was so common, why would it need pointing out? You don’t have to point it out with any other race. Js.

      • Fancy BISH September 13, 2020

        It’s not exactly black excellence when it’s only black people saying lol

  9. Betsy September 12, 2020

    Isn’t It A Shame by Pattie Labelle. That’s all folks.

    • city girl September 12, 2020

      i’m team gladys but i LOVE that song 😭

    • chilepleaseee September 14, 2020

      She only played one LaBelle song and I’m mad that wasn’t included

  10. Clarkson September 12, 2020

    Midnight Train To Georgia destroys Pattis entire flop catalogue

  11. Rashad September 12, 2020

    I like Patti as a person but not crazy about her oversinging. Glady’s voice was always more beautiful to me and she is the most under appreciated legend from that era. I think she had the second best voice from that generation after Queen Aretha. I’d love to see Miss Ross and Dionne do this too.

    What y’all making??

  13. Magii September 13, 2020
