I see this is teh model Jordon Sparks is going for, how can she be so damm fat? Jordon Sparks is a kid and getting fatter and fatter, the material for her dress in her new video would build a shelter for the olson twins. Put down the donuts and get on the tracK! Or bette yet just go away you all suck!

All negative comments about Ms. Aretha Franklin are so shameful. People wonder why we aren't like in other countries! Nothing is sacred here!

That is not at all funny--this woman is an amazing legend--I know her. Your site is getting trashy, so I will take it off my favorites.
BTW, she accomlished her career through struggle, suffering, and talent, not through disparaging others at any attempt possbile.
You need to get a soul.

#42-So right!!! I own the 1998 Diva's Live VHS and I fast forward all of her parts. She appears to be an egotistical, self absorbed individual who has no concern or R-E-S-P-E-C-T for any of the other artists that she was singing with. It was obvious to me that she was there because the show had the word Diva in it. Singing over people and taking their parts away live so they couldn't do anything but stand there and look stupid. The end of the show is the best...Celine Dion chews her up and spits her out vocally. Probably because she takes care of herself and her voice and she was ready to blow....Aretha out of the water! Move over Aretha....there's another singer in town.

I think if she wants to eat fries...go ahead, but don't go strutting your stuff like no one can touch you when you can't even sing anymore...Seriously!
