Ms. Patti LaBelle wants you to know that at 70-years-young, her life has gotten just about as sweet as one of her famous pies.
In a recent interview with People, Patti spoke about her resurgence as the creator of her desserts.
“Whenever I’d make pies at home, people would just go crazy and would ask for more. So I said, ‘I know this is right, and I think we better do something with this idea. I expected them to do well because the taste is phenomenal, but I didn’t know that it would become what it is.”
The success, Patti says, gave her a rejuvenated spirit.
“I feel better than I did when I was 30 or 40. I’m singing better than I did back in the day. It’s just been wonderful.”
But it’s not just the success that has her feeling like she has a new attitude, it’s also her family, including her 42-year-old son Zuri and her 2-year-old granddaughter Gia, that have made her feel more vibrant.
“She likes to dance and she plays like she’s on stage with the little pretend mic. She’ll hold the mic and sing, ‘Patti, Patti!’ I think she’s making me lighter and happier and feeling like a young girl again.”
And if you’re wondering if Ms. LaBelle is showing any signs of stopping, think again.
“It’s amazing the things that are happening to me after age 70. I’m a hardworking woman and I love it. People keep saying to me, ‘It seems like you’re just getting started, Miss LaBelle.’”
