Patti LaBelle’s career is taking a Freak-ish turn. The Grammy winning music legend will appear in four episodes of "American Horror Story: Freak Show", playing the mother of Gabourey Sidibe’s character, TVLine has confirmed.

According to an insider, LaBelle’s alter ego — who I’m told does not sing — is a local townsperson who begins to unravel the murderous secrets of Twisty the clown killer.
