Gladys Knight Calls In

Harvey & Charles SING BACK-UP

2/21/2012 12:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF


What's the greatest Motown song of all time -- tough question ... but we got one of the greatest experts ever to weigh-in ... Gladys Knight.

She's also got two new Pips -- Harvey and Charles sing back-up ... or at least they try. And if that wasn't enough -- Stevie Wonder also calls in and gives us his picks.

Also, are Rihanna and Chris Brown pulling the most irresponsible publicity stunt ever?


(2:00) Harvey is BEYOND excited! One of his all-time favorite singers -- Motown legend Gladys Knight -- is on the phone!
(3:15) Gladys explains the magic of Hitsville USA -- and how music wasn't the same after Motown moved to L.A.
(4:30) Gladys tells a story about Hitsville that she's NEVER told before.
(8:10) Gladys reveals her favorite songs to sing ... and her favorite hits by the other Motown greats.
(14:45) Gladys sings "Midnight Train" ... and Harvey and Charles sing backup!!! Classic.
(17:30) Rihanna and Chris Brown collaborate on two songs together -- most people in the newsroom are disgusted by it.
(34:50) Stevie Wonder is on the phone! Harvey and Charles can't believe it ... and think we're screwing with them.
(37:01) Stevie's turn to reveal his favorite Motown hits.
(40:00) Stevie talks about being a kid at Hitsville -- and how Marvin Gaye showed him how to hold drum sticks.

Congrats Charles and Harvey for interviewing Gladys and Stevie. That must have been awesome. I would have told STevie that asside from his masterpiece Innervisions, Songs In the Key Of Life is one of my fav albums of all time. I would have asked about that, his drumming (which was always great-Stevie's cymbol playing in particular), and was the harmonica playing Boogie On Reggae Woman done in one take? Sure sounds like it-what a music genius legend.

I think ya'll meant that you "bust a nut so she could get off yo". I tax that Rhianna's ass anytime, any day, any way. Chris over hears this and walks up into bobby's face and sais, "Now that yo meal ticket is gone, who be paying for yo crank, bitch? Chris beats Bobby then Bobby shoot Chris dead. Rhianna and Bobby have a hit and call their new song "****s sake, he gone"

Great show guys.. one for the archive if you ask me.

ps.. Cutting out the banter between breaks is not cool. My favorite moments with you guys is the candid stuff. Cutting that out is ruining the show overall. Please take note. Your candid comments ARE what TMZ is about. Don't forget that.
