Remember the Millenium tour from earlier this year? The Star-Studded lineup that raised us millennials was back again. We’re talking Soulja Boy (Draaake? Draaaaaake?!), Lloyd, Sammie, Pretty Ricky, Ying Yang Twins, Ashanti, the bow wow challenge, I mean rapper, and then some.
And then there was Mario…
Among the millennium tour all-stars was the singer Mario. He stole our hearts with ‘Let me love you‘ and never gave them back. Now, we all saw him pull a couple of pretty little ladies on stage to serenade. One of them sat as pretty and high saditty as Whitley Gilberg from ‘A Different World’ (than wherrre ya come from!) the other seized the moment as if she had just learned the meaning of Carpe Diem!
Mario thought What?
The hilarious moment when Mario thought the crowd was screaming for him because she got out of her seat and became part of the show is as funny now, as it was then. He was in shock when he turned around to find a full-fledged burlesque show behind him.
Mario Loved it So Much He Smacked her on the What?
He went from shocked to impressed real quick. Sis did the splits and a stripper-flip and no one was ready – including Whitley over there who sat prissy and pretty in silence. If you ever wanted to see a real live version of Tiffany “New York” Pollards “You should have just sat there and ate your food,” it was definitely the other girl we’re calling ‘Whitely’ who Mario pulled up on stage along with this firecracker of a woman. Sis knew she couldn’t follow that act and we stan a woman who knows when to hold ’em and when to fold ’em.
Where is Sis Now?
How did she not become part of the show? She was giving back up dancer and the crowd ate it up with a spoon. Where is she now? Is she still out there stealing souls and shows from up under seasoned performers or nah? She did not just steal the moment, she was the moment. She has become a metaphor for living your best life. In the words of the legendary songbird Gladys Knight, “…and when you get the choice, to sit it out or dance, I hope you dance.”
