Since the passing of the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, there has been talk of which artists will/should be asked to perform at her tribute in November at Madison Square Garden.

Jennifer Hudson (JHud, as she is affectionately known by her fans),
Gladys Knight, Stevie Wonder, Earth, Wind and Fire, and somewhere in the Twitter universe, 1990's teen crooner,
Tevin Campbell's name came up. And then THIS happened:

She said WHAT?! Miss me with that mess. I heard all the records scratch and all the nails scrape the chalkboard. I will not tolerate any Tevin Campbell hateration in this dancerie. Now run and tell that.

Tevin Campbell's 1992 song, "Can We Talk" (produced by Babyface), is one of my all-time favorite songs, so when you come for Tevin, you're coming for the wrong one, hun. Even Prince knew Tevin had talent, and booked him for a song on his Graffiti Bridge movie soundtrack in 1990.

If you are not aware of who "Awesome Luvvie" is (and I would not blame you one bit), she is a comedian of sorts. She writes blogs about pop culture. She has a Facebook page. She has a book. Don't get me wrong; the chick is very successful. She even has an alleged tv production deal with Shonda Rhimes.

I actually used to be a huge fan of hers and once contemplated going to her book signing in Seattle a few years back. That was before one day (a couple of years ago), she unfortunately said something so crusty that I was in shock and decided that I couldn't be a fan of hers any longer. It hurt my heart that day when I clicked the "Unfollow" button on Facebook, but I tell you what, I have rarely looked back.

The "unfollowing" episode was so long ago that I honestly don't even remember what it was she had said that rubbed me the wrong way, all I know is that in my book, she has been officially "cancelled".

I have told you all of the above to help you understand my disdain when I saw the Luvvie's tweet. All I could do is roll my eyes and shake my "H".

It seems that I wasn't the only one who saw her tweet and said, "Ain't nobody got time for that."


Many more irate Tweeps had some time today to let Luvvie know that she messed up big time.



She really tried it.
