Patti LaBelle Says Beyoncé and Ariana Grande Call Her Up for Advice
The Godmother of Soul walked the red carpet at the CMT Smashing Glass: A Celebration of the Groundbreaking Women of Music event in Nashville, and she spoke with ET's Rachel Smith about being recognized at the event for her contribution as a groundbreaking female artist.
"It's special! I mean, I'm here with Tanya Tucker and Sheryl Crow and all these wonderful people," LaBelle marveled, adding that it feels good "just knowing that we make a difference."
In fact, LaBelle says she's often called upon to lend an ear or dispense advice.
"They do they call me for information. I'm the OG, I'm 79, and all my little girls like Ledisi and Fantasia and Beyoncé... and Ariana Grande... they all call me," LaBelle said, "for information about things that they're going through, that I've been through."
"So I hope that I can always give information to my babies," the iconic diva added with a smile. "Because that's what I do."
