The legendary Darlene Love is claiming she’s been “disrespected” by the New York Stock Exchange. According to the “New York Post,” Love was asked to perform her classic version of ‘Baby Please Come Home” for the NYSE 96th annual Christmas tree lighting this December, but they expected her to work for free.
While she agreed to the performance, she “requested ground transportation to be provided since she lives an hour away in Rockland County,” and the NYSE turned her down, saying they’d try to get her “$500 to cover a portion of her car,” and suggested, “she should do it for exposure.”
“At this stage of my career, I don’t need any more exposure — just respect” she shared. “My time and value is worth more than $500 to hang out at the NYSE for seven hours for free with a bunch of millionaire stock brokers. …This is insulting!”
