Remember This Klymaxx Singer? See How She’s STILL Making The Men All Pause

Posted On : October 29, 2016

All we have to say is “Don’t slap me, ’cause I’m not in the mood” and Old School R&B lovers everywhere know exactly who we’re talking about! That would be singer/musician, Bernadette Cooper, the founding member of the 80’s female R&B band, Klymaxx, and their song, “Meeting In The Ladies Room.” Bernadette was the group member with swag on level 100 and who was rockin’ a sexy asymmetric hairdo that hung over right eye. We were wondering what Ms. Cooper’s been doing since her Klymaxx days and at 58 years young, she still has her own way of making ‘the men all pause when she walks into the room’…


Screen Shot 2016-10-29 at 2.05.15 PM In 2015 Bernadette released a new album titled, "Last Diva on Earth Episode 1: Planet Sexy" and she has also performed off and on with her own band. Bernadette recently reminisced about back in the day and talked about everything from the tension between her former Klymaxx sisters and herself, as well as her very good friend, the late Teena Marie... Screen Shot 2016-10-29 at 2.08.03 PM In an interview with Essence, Bernadette also touched on some decades-long tension she's had with one of her fellow Klymaxx members Essence:

"While we are on hiatus one of the members of the group continued to tour with the band’s name. We asked her to stop. Klymaxx was my vision. I created the concept. We did get together and we did tour for awhile. If you’re an original member of the band you can use “Klymaxx Featuring…” But realistically, our time was up. I toured as “Klymaxx Presents Bernadette Cooper, but I’m looking forward to letting go, and moving forward."
