We remember when this skirt was a dress!
Mariah Carey took her bodacious bod to BET's Black Girls Rock event honoring Patti LaBelle in New Jersey on Saturday.
Now, we LURVE it anytime MiMi gives us a glimpse of her seksi skin, but we have to admit we really preferred the full, original version of this outfit. It was much more sophisticated!
Still, though, we give Mariah props for matching her drop earrings to the print of the skirt. Cute!

People pay through the nose to hear Patti LaBelle sing. So how much is that velvet voice worth?
Well, if that voice is saying f–k or c–t around a toddler, it's worth at least a hundred grand!
We told you last year about the lawsuit brought on by Roseanna Monk, whose daughter Genevieve was playing too close to Patti.
According to the lawsuit, the Lady Marmalade singer yelled profanities at both mother and daughter and even had to be held back by security. Monk claimed in court documents that the incident traumatized her daughter.
Well, Patti has thrown in the towel on this one. She has settled out of court for a whopping $100,000! That's one giant effin' swear jar!
Monk says all the money earned in the lawsuit will go to the Hope & Heroes Children’s Cancer Fund. She says:
“This is an opportunity for Patti LaBelle to help a lot of children, and I feel good about that.”
Well, we guess that is something to feel good about. We never condone fighting, but all's well that ends with a charity donation!
Plus, we know patty will think twice the next time she loses her temper. Cuz she might just lose her shirt!

Don Cornelius's passing has affected fans and celebs alike.
Music legends Aretha Franklin and Patti LaBelle echo the condolences of fans of the Soul Train creator.

Catch the opening segment of the show (above) where Perez leads the discussing on the Bieber paternity bullshiz. We break it down for you! Plus, we talk about some other baby drama, this time with Patti Labelle.
What the actual f**k??
Roseanna Monk is not only accusing legendary singer Patti LaBelle of screaming at her 18-month-old baby Genevieve, but she's also accused of throwing a punch at her, the mother.
Her lawyer, Sam Davis, says that when Genevieve was scampering around the lobby of a Riverside Blvd. apartment on the Upper West Side, LaBelle became upset and started yelling.
Wearing oversized shades and a fur coat, like the diva that she is, LaBelle apparently said:
"What are you doing letting your kid run around like that?"
Then, she started "screaming at my client, throwing water from a bottle at the mother's face and the baby's face."
When the mother asked LaBelle, "Are you happy that this is what you have done to this baby?" LaBelle allegedly "tried to take a swing."
Monk would have been satisfied with an apology, but when she read about an incident in Houston where LaBelle's hairdresser and bodyguard were accused of assaulting a West Point cadet (WTF?!?!), she decided to sue. Monk said:
"Violence seems to be part of their road show."
This is craaAAaazy! We love Patti, but violence is NEVER the answer!! Unacceptable!

Are U surprised? We're not surprised! Not when it comes to Cee-Lo Green!

God we love him! LOLz!
