Patty Brard on "Ranking the Stars": once again she disses Luv'!!!

BNN/NPO 3's panel game "Ranking the Stars" (hosted by Paul de Leeuw and featuring Patty Brard as a panelist) drew 499.000 viewers (market share: 8.9%) on July 23rd, 2017. Once again, the former Luv' singer couldn't help dissing her ex-colleagues. She showed a photo of the current line-up of the trio posing with a policeman backstage at a concert at the shopping center "De Els" in Walwijk, NL (see news posted on May 20th, 2017). She made silly jokes about their outfit and Ria Thielsch (who replaced her).

"Marga (Scheide) once trademarked Luv's name because she wanted to protect it. Then I looked at her and I thought: "why don't you go first to the hairdresser?" Patty said making fun of her haircut. "I've only had troubles with these "chicks"," she added (referring to her problems with the girl group). 

It's always the same old song. At first, Patty publicly declares she doesn't want to talk about Luv' anymore but then she criticizes the group who made her the so-called "star" she is today. 

Without Hans van Hemert this Schroevers secretary wouldn't have done a great career in show biz.

Moreover, Patty told Paul de Leeuw that she was never asked to participate in "College Tour". This NTR/NPO 3 program interviews the most high-profile Dutch and international guests. Inspired by town hall meetings during United States elections, the majority of questions are asked by the audience.

Luv' deja vu: Rihanna's outfit in the music video for "Wild Thoughts"

On June 16th, American musician DJ Khaled featuring Barbadian superstar Rihanna and Bryson Tiller released the single entitled "Wild Thoughts" (taken from Khaled's tenth studio album "Grateful"). This mid-tempo Latin-inspired track consists of Latin percussion, acoustic guitar lines and riffs that are heavily sampled from the 1999 hit single "Maria Maria" by American Latin rock band Santana

The song has become one of the biggest hits of this summer. It is a global sensation (#2 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the USA, a Top 5 hit in Europe, #2 in Australia, many gold and platinum certifications around the world....). 

As a Luv' fan, I noticed something special when I first saw Rihanna's short turquoise off-the-shoulder silk chiffon dress (designed by Alberta Ferretti) in the music video. 

Music video for "Wild Thoughts" (already 187 million views on Youtube!!!)

I had a strong sense of déjà vu. The pop star's outfit reminded me of José Hoebee's costume for Luv's Greatest Lover in 1978.
