Big Freedia remembers the time Patti LaBelle made her fried chicken

The story of how icons Big Freedia and Patti LaBelle first met.

March 19, 2020

A lot of the stories told on The FADER’s Remember That Time series recount the weird, wild, abject, and plain stupid — from the time the Spice Girls peed in Elton John’s pot plant to the night Omar Apollo nearly got robbed. But today’s Remember That Time is something special indeed, and a much-needed moment of lightness this week: Big Freedia telling us about the time Ms. Patti LaBelle — Philly icon, musical god — came to one of her shows, and brought her a batch of homemade fried chicken. Legends, as they say, stan for legends. Watch Big Freedia’s Remember That Time video above, and watch the rest of the series here.
