Village People Singer

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

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.

That was great! I've never seen that video before. I have been a Village People fan since they first began recording, even though people constantly made fun of me for liking them. lol So I'm especially glad that this song has endured.

Btw, I always heard that the Village People were gay. Now one of them is supposedly married. Huh??? lol
