Wow, someone needs a new attitude. I was put off by her diva performance at Live Aid and never cared about her since. What an ugly video.

She coulda played along , had fun with it, then bitched about it privately in her dressing room. But now she looks like a real douchebag in a youtube video. That's not a good thing....

I thought it was pretty mild....

The guy was on stage and made some crack about her "wanting it more than he did".

She took offence and banished him.

She then talked about respect, that she was embarassed, didn't know what to do next and maybe that he didn't mean or realise what he was saying.

She invited him back, he agreed it was a bad joke, apologised and they hugged.

I'm not absolutely sure what the problem is. She might've shrugged off the comment and not asserted herself. He might've refused to climb down and asserted himself.

It all seemed to work out OK in the end.

part of me wonders if this was all scripted. Notice that the band still kept playing through the whole thing

Patti has a fantastic voice and she's definately up there with the divas, but come on, get over yourself just a little! "Do you know who I am!!!!". I half expected a "I'm Patti LaBelle, bitch!!"
