Twitter Queen Dionne Warwick wants to unblock your chakras

The latest place to hear Dionne Warwick’s voice — that one-of-a-kind instrument that defined pop sophistication in the mid-1960s — is up a few flights of stairs behind a grimy storefront several blocks from the beach in Venice.

This is the Ohm Zone, a combination recording studio, sound bath and meditation center owned by Warwick’s son Damon Elliott, where the Grammy-winning singer greets visitors in an introductory video full of enveloping tones and high-flown language about the restorative power of certain sonic frequencies.

Part of the booming wellness industry, sound baths are guided meditation experiences that use ambient music to draw practitioners into a state of deep contemplation. And over the past few years, they’ve cropped up in increasing numbers across Los Angeles as celebrities such as Charlize Theron and Adele have extolled their virtues.

But if other joints offer gongs and singing bowls, only the Ohm Zone boasts the serene vocal stylings of the woman who once soothed a weary nation with swanky hits like “I Say a Little Prayer” and “Do You Know the Way to San Jose.”

Fuck the chakras. Looking at that photo, she should be the next James Bond.

Asked if she saw this year’s Franklin biopic, “Respect,” Warwick said she had. And what did she think?

“I didn’t,” she replied frostily. “I knew Aretha from when we were teenagers, and there was a lot missing” from the movie, she said, citing crucial figures who were left out, including Franklin’s longtime musical director, H.B. Barnum; drummer Bernard Purdie; and the Sweet Inspirations, the backing-vocal group (featuring Warwick’s aunt Cissy Houston) that frequently performed and recorded with Franklin.

R4 I know she's ALWAYS done it, but MA'AM. THIS IS 2021. STOP THAT SHIT. It's disgusting. 🚬🚫

R1 and R5, I shall accept the $40 million payday and a piece of the net IF they get someone else to do the intimate scenes.

I don't swing with any Pussy Galore except my own.

Ms. Warwick is getting woke the DL-approved way. Eschewing the SJW world instead for personal enlightenment.

Dionne is 80 years old. Why even bother to quit smoking at that age? Smoke 'em up, Dionne!

I really like her sense of humor, and I hope one of the streamers picks up her documentary. Dionne is hot right now, it would get good ratings.

She's nuts and I love her. Dionne + Burt Bacharach were the pinnacle of 20th century music to me.

The whole skit was funny. Ego Nwodim's impression was delightful.

Dionne is an old school hoodrat. ‘Member when she stole all that dough from the “That’s what friends are for” fundraiser that was intended for helping aids research and victims? Keep smiling and shining you old whore.

The moment I wake up

Before I put on that makeup

I light a little blunt or Kools

Everybody knows Dionne smokes Virginia Slims. Aretha smoked Kools.

I enjoyed his cameo last night so much in the "SNL" Dionne Warwick show skit.
