for a lot of these people, it's called getting older. we all know that your metabolism slows down as you get older and some of these celebrities probably feel that they would rather spend hours with their families instead of hours at the gym. god forbid if celebrities should look human instead of looking like a wax skeleton.
i'm sure some of the members of the TMZ staff couldn't probably stand to loose a few punds, as well. don't you think?

He's Boring now    

Aretha has all the appearance of Type 2 Diabetes candidate, if she doesnt have it already...and if she does, and continues to remain that large for this long, my goodness, we should be saying our good byes to her soon. Amputation is also a possibility if she doesnt change her living habits. God Bless her but God Help her.

Cant her handlers or family members or even beloved Fans help her?

OMG...... Do you mean these people are actually "NORMAL" like the rest of us? How odd that they could actually gain weight like human people.... say it isn't so?

I admire them more if they are "REAL", in whatever shape that is.

There is no pleasing you people. You make fun of people who use cosmetic surgery and the like to stay looking young and then and you also make fun of people who are growing older naturally.

Aretha looks absolutely disgusting. I also want to know who the bright one that told her that dress looked good on her. She needs to lose weight and do it soon before she dies of a heart attack.

Do you people at TMZ ever have something nice to say about anyone other than yourselves?

I seriously doubt that you can go 24 hours without making a snarky remark about someone.

TMZ knock it off! Aretha's weight has been up and down her entire life and SO WHAT? Our only conversation in regard to what she looks like should be about her health and that is it!!! The previous poster is right....if she does not get help...she is going to die an early death...and that would be really sad! She is a True and Gifted Legend!

Meh. Considering her contributions to music and her accomplishments, who cares what she looks like?! It isn't like she's seeking to do a Playboy nude spread.

The only thing is, she's at a very unhealthy weight.

Aretha, please get healthy. You still have a lot more life to live!

Hey Aretha, look what being a diva all those years got you. Should have used your own legs and got your food yourself instead of having it delivered!

Hell, TMZ! I'll bet if we take a picture from anyone on your staff a few years back and did a "look at me now", the pictures would be similar to the celebs. We're not immune to it, it's going to happen to all of us unless we have a built in cental-lipo-suction unit at home and a diet that consists only of "smelling of peanut butter" and drinking some fluids. Some people age gracefully, some do not. It's life baby!
