Everyone knows the “Lady Marmalade” cover of Patti Labelle’s classic from Moulin Rouge is ICONIC and basically the official national anthem of thots everywhere. Mya, Xtina, Lil Kim, and Pink did what? They did THAT.
Anyway, as a homosexual, some of my favorite things in life include arguing which Jonas brother is the hottest, watching Barefoot Contessa reruns, and causing national weather disasters.
But my favorite thing as a homo to do is start drama! And I did just that the other day when I tweeted this little challenge out. And let me tell you, the gays DELIVERED with their responses.
The most popular choice so far: Plucking arguably the four biggest names possible, and running with it.
Although…some people (including me!) think Bey might just blow the other girlies out of the water!
This version has EVERYTHING. Beyoncé. Gaga. Céline Dion who can serve us FRENCH vocals. A DRAG QUEEN (RuPaul)?! Sign me up.
There were plenty of straightforward choices…
…and I noticed Ariana Grande was probably the most popular choice.
Here’s a slightly more oddball choice that I think would work magnificently:
Or we could just pick Little Mix, the no-assembly-required choice, and call it a day?
Love this old school interpretation…
…and this one (Etta would have to be a hologram, plus the OG singer Patti for extra points)…
…and this throwback, too!
Kind of here for this extra queer version:
And yeah…some people didn’t want to mess with a good thing:
I mean…they have a point.
For the record…here is who I would pick.
OK, now your turn. Who would YOU dream-cast in a 2018 version of “Lady Marmalade”?
