Village People Singer

Issuing 'Y.M.C.A.' Ban On Clippers

4/27/2014 4:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0427-the-village-people-clipper-01Young man, there IS need to feel down ... because the cop from Village People says he's BANNING the L.A. Clippers from playing "Y.M.C.A." at home games ... thanks to Donald Sterling. 

Victor Willis -- who reportedly owns the rights to the song -- is furious ... saying, "Sterling, you're banned from playing "Y.M.C.A." or any of my music @LAClippers games.  And I mean it!"

Victor's rep tells us the singer is dead serious about the ban -- and will be sending an official notice to Donald Sterling first thing tomorrow morning.

So, in conclusion ... you can get yourself clean, you can have a good meal, but you CAN'T do whatever you feel.

I brought up my TMZ app and was so happy to see others news..but no - same old crap for 2 days. If you guys take your heads out of your butts and look around, there is other news. And Village People, there's lots of catchy tunes.
