The Grammy Award winning American singer Patti Labelle revealed she once had to relieve herself in a bucket during an outdoor gig.
Namely, the soul legend really had to go to the ladies room in a middle of a song, but she realized there was no time to leave the stage and hit the toilet.
The Lady Marmalade hitmaker saw that she had to think of an alternative, so she told her assistant to come up with something really fast!
And the funny part is that no one knew what she was up to – everyone thought she had gone backstage to change outfits.
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.”
