Lead singer of the Village People bans Clippers from using 'YMCA'
Lead singer informs Clippers you can make real your dreams but you've got to know this one thing, you can't use his song.
Victor Willis is the original lead singer of the musical group the Village People. Their song "YMCA" is often played at sporting events, because ... I'm not really sure to be honest with you. It's just one of those things that happens, like the wave, or ironic mustaches. Anyway, he's pretty upset at the alleged racist statements from Donald Sterling and took to Twitter to let the team know he's revoking the rights of the team to use the song.
Billboard reports Willis does in fact own rights to the song as well as many other Village People hits. So, no "Macho Man" for the Clippers, either. TMZ reports that a spokesman for the singer confirmed he's serious and will pursue action if the song is used.
So just to recap. The list of people who have weighed in on this controversy now includes the President of the United States and the lead singer of the Village People.
