Katey Red: That’s my girl! She taught me everything I know, and I wouldn’t be where I am without her.
Katey lived in the Melphopmine projects, and I met her through my friend Addie at a block party. I started as her backup singer. Boy, we had some times together! Life is never boring around her.
Wasn’t it sweet to see my dancer Skip on his shopping spree for his daughter? I love my dancers, ya heard me? We are all a family, and I’m proud that he’s taking care of his daughter. Speaking of Skip, now you know he wants to perform on Broadway — he’ll do it. He’ll be representin’ all of NOLA when he becomes a tap/bounce star. But did you know if I wasn’t a dancer, singer, designer, what I’d be in another life? Not Broadway, but I’d be chef or decorator. We all have more than one talent, use it. Be free and unafraid!
Now have you evuh seen an “ass-friendly” photo shoot before? That’s a real work of art (or as we called that gallery: “Twerk of Art”). It was time we immortalized the rumps in living color. Why weren’t you there? Who wouldn’t want butt tattoos with names splashed across? Only thing I regret is not baring it all myself! And if there was one person alive or dead I could’ve had there (besides Devon), it would’ve been JLo!
I even gave ya a little “churchin'” this time around. Yep, I’m just a grown-up choir boy who’s now 6-feet-plus tall. You may have noticed my “Queen Vera” shirt. Shout out to mom who’s in the heavens. Will never stop missing you, momma!
A performer’s worst nightmare is losing her voice, and you can see it happened in Philly during a sold-out show! But the show must go on. I’ve lost it before; my fans will always rally for me. They love me everywhere I go, and it’s like one big family! That’s the Freedia crowd, baby! None othuh! My voice may go, but my rump don’t ever get tired, and that’s what they come for!
