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!

* Food did this? I doubt it.

** Drug abuse and menapuse, perhaps?


*** I hope that she doesn't read TMZ because you people are immature and cruel.

Say what you want, but there is nothing in this world like Aretha's voice. It is magical.

I would expect her to pay for two or maybe three seats on an airplane. I hope she's made her arrangements with Forest Lawn because at her age and weight, that little heart of hers is not going to be to dependable in the near future. She must love her In and Out Burgers!

not rocket science Britney    

This dress is not something that could be bought off-the-rack on clearance on one particularly bad day. Someone intentionally designed that for her, drafted a pattern, selected the fabric, fitted, and sewed this monstrosity. Since an incredible amount of work was put into this, it could not be a mistake and could only be deliberate. Although Aretha has no excuse to letting this happen to her.

Yes, her stylist should be fired. There was no excuse for this dress. There are plenty of plus size celebrities that have dresses on that look so much better than this. Queen Latifah and Jennifer Hudson to name just two.

I can't blame it on the stylists. Is it even possible to make a garment that would look nice on Aunt Ree Ree? She's gotta weigh 350, at least.

She used to wear couch fabric dresses in the 80s-90s. She's now moved onto curtains.
