'Big Freedia' Deleted Scene: Wilberto and Reid Get Heated Over Freedia's Setlist
Perform "oldies but goodies" or deliver fresh, new beats at Big Freedia's live shows? This week's Big Freedia Bounces Back deleted scene finds Freedia's manager, Reid, and show director/choreographer, Wilberto, at odds over the Queen Diva's setlist for her Alabama show.
Sitting down at Gasa Gasa in New Orleans' Freret District, the two argue back and forth over how to best improve Freedia's "bread and butter." Reid suggests ditching predictable songs like "N.O. Bounce" and "Explode," while Wilberto vehemently opposes getting rid of classics.
"You can't keep playing the same songs! I'm right. That's it," Reid concludes. "Berto obviously sucks at life."
