Aretha Gets No Respect from Her Stylists

12/3/2007 3:49 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin turned up at the Kennedy Center Honors in D.C. on Sunday, wearing the curtains from the White House music room!
Aretha Franklin
Sporting "What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?" makeup, the 65-year-old living legend was draped in an unnatural amount of yellow fabric!

Say a little prayer!

Well, first of all, they should have covered up those arms!

Seriously, tone that down.........cover those arms and dress like a 60+ year old women. Thank God the sylist managed to cover up those HUGE breasts. Who would have ever thought to dress Ms. Franklin in yellow. For goodness sake, she should be in black from head to toe - not dressed like a NY city cab.

Forget being mad at her stylist....someone imprison the cook who keeps feeding her! This is just painful to look at because it's unecessary and a waste of a life that she can't possibly be enjoying at that size.

He's Boring now    

Right on #15. Its just FOOD. Good grief woman find another outlet for your misery, or better yet, go see someone about why you feel the need to fill up beyond Full. You think you're the only one who ever has felt that way? You being rich and famous doesnt give you exemption from that, even if Barry Gordy told you that once.

On the Skinny Side    

She is huge. I haven't seen her in awhile. None the less, I pray for her health because, as many of you have said, obesity leads to other health problems.
