Patti LaBelle: 'I had to relieve myself in a bucket during outdoor gig'

6/17/2014

Soul legend Patti Labelle once had to pee in a bucket during a concert when she was caught short onstage in the middle of a song. The Lady Marmalade hitmaker was performing outdoors and realised there was no time to dash offstage to relieve herself and so asked an assistant to find an alternative in a hurry. LaBelle tells Access Hollywood Live, "I had to go to the ladies room and they didn’t have one close, it was an outdoor gig. "My friend Norma, who had been doing my hair for 40 years, brought me a bucket to the side where the dressing areas were. I used a bucket! Nobody knew. They thought I was going back to change clothes. "She covered me (and) everybody stood around with their backs turned. "(I) kept the song going after that, honey! I kept singing, the band was playing and Patti was doing her thing."
