Dee Dee Sharp feels snubbed

Dee Dee Sharp, of "Mashed Potatoes Time" fame, feels like she should have already been inducted into the Rock Hall:
Metro Times: You have so many awards and accolades. Why aren't you in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame?

Sharp: [laughs] That's a good question! I got a Rhythm & Blues award in 2001. But I don't know. I can't answer that. Maybe I'm just not blessed enough; I don't know.

MT: Well, you should be.

Sharp: Well, I appreciate that. But I found that sometimes tooting your own horn just doesn't work. But I really can't answer why I'm not in. I do know that I was the first woman to do a lot of things. I was the first African-American woman to ever be placed on the cover of 16 Magazine. So I don't understand. I have no idea as to why I'm not in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. It's ridiculous as well that I don't have a star on the Walk of Fame in Philadelphia.

Sharp's former husband, Kenny Gamble was inducted in 2008 in the Non-Performer category.

Future Rock Hall currently gives Dee Dee Sharp a 3% chance at future induction.
