I'm sorry but she looks awful. What has happened to her. You have to respect yourself before you can get others to respect you. To eat yourself into that condition means you have no good feelings about yourself. I know...I've been there. Thank goodness I did something about it before my heart couldn't take it anymore.

Aretha could wear a garbage bag and she'd still be dazzling. Lay off her. She isn't one of your usual pap whores. She has talent.

Yes indeed Aretha is BIG, but she is BAD as well - she maybe fat but she is a really nice lady. Who gets alot of respect from people like "W", that all yall White folks love sooooo much. She has performed in presence of Kings and Queens and earned their respect as well! I guess everyone who has been so hurtful in their comments is perfect and beautiful! But BEAUTY comes in all shapes, SIZES and colors and I'll bet she will be singin in the Angelic Choir leading Amazing Grace!!!
