I Asked People Who They Would Cast For A New Version Of "Lady Marmalade" And The Results Were Amazing

Who would you pick?

Posted on

Everyone knows the "Lady Marmalade" cover of Patti Labelle's classic from Moulin Rouge is ICONIC and basically the official national anthem of thots everywhere. Mya, Xtina, Lil Kim, and Pink did what? They did THAT.

But my favorite thing as a homo to do is start drama! And I did just that the other day when I tweeted this little challenge out. And let me tell you, the gays DELIVERED with their responses.

You can find out all you need to know about a gay man by asking who he'd pick for a 2018 version of "Lady Marmalade"

The most popular choice so far: Plucking arguably the four biggest names possible, and running with it.

@sbstryker Beyoncé, Nicki, Britney and Rihanna

Although...some people (including me!) think Bey might just blow the other girlies out of the water!

@sbstryker Everybody who is picking Beyoncé for this is disrespectful. The Queen is too great for this role.

This version has EVERYTHING. Beyoncé. Gaga. Céline Dion who can serve us FRENCH vocals. A DRAG QUEEN (RuPaul)?! Sign me up.

There were plenty of straightforward choices...

@sbstryker Nicki minaj Jessie J Rhianna Lady Gaga

...and I noticed Ariana Grande was probably the most popular choice.

Here's a slightly more oddball choice that I think would work magnificently:

@sbstryker BUT if we go for the girls who aren’t “icons” in that way... Ariana Cardi Charli XCX MIA Co-produced by SOPHIE and Grimes

Or we could just pick Little Mix, the no-assembly-required choice, and call it a day?

@sbstryker we all ready have the 2018 lady marmalade

Love this old school interpretation...

@sbstryker Cher, Cyndi Lauper, Debbie Harry, & Dolly Parton. I know, weird mix & it would never happen but I can dream can’t I?

...and this one (Etta would have to be a hologram, plus the OG singer Patti for extra points)...

@sbstryker Etta James, Aretha Franklin, Tina Turner, Patti Labelle...

...and this throwback, too!

@sbstryker Madonna, Janet, Mariah, and Missy

Kind of here for this extra queer version:

@sbstryker Beth Ditto Lady Gaga Perfume Genius Lorde

And yeah...some people didn't want to mess with a good thing:

@sbstryker What is wrong with you people? Lil' Kim Christina Aquilera Mya P!nk

I mean...they have a point.

@sbstryker Leave the classic alone. There will never be a perfect combination like that ever again, ever. The 4 el… https://t.co/ZsUn1vHrzi

For the record...here is who I would pick.

Mine would be: Dua Lipa Ariana Grande Maren Morris Cardi B https://t.co/d9PtKl8aa3
