Aretha Franklin Looks Corny

4/29/2009 1:36 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Looking like your aunt from Massapequa, Long Island getting ready to board the Greyhound to Atlantic City, Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin -- and her toe growth -- checked out of a NYC hotel on Tuesday.

You all are pathetic. I love Aretha..she probrably doesnt pay attention to TMZ therefore, she couldnt give a f*. Shes living the life of luxury. As you get older, you tend to experience stuff like this... Leave Aretha alone and get on CB's ass.

Aretha is the Queen of Soul and has done more in her career than most people have, so leave her alone. So she gets a corn/bunion/thingy on her foot. Gross TMZ...do we really need to know this?

Well they must have changed it to read corn, because that is what mine reads, corny is what it says and indeed that is what is on her foot a corn, my mom had them when she was alive. Aretha does look like she's lost some weight good for her. As for you fat haters - too bad she can't sit on ya (haha)! And for you Ebay person poster, I suppose you think you're doing people a public service announcement hmm? Whatever! Sure you said let's pray for her, rather I'd like to comment on you commenting on how she hasn't taken care of herself over the years, basically how she's blowed up with her weight gain. Obviously she's put on alot of weight over the years and it's no secret extra weight (and obesity) leads to other medical issues. How the fahuck ever, it is HER life, you got that, who are you to think she owes you, me, her fans anything more than what she has already given us? HOW SELFISH AND HOGGISH OF YOU!!!! If she chooses to eat the wrong foods, not exercise or whatever, that is her choice, her right, not yours, not mine, ONLY HERS. So butt the hell out. It infuriates me when people think they can take away another person's choices. We do not live in a communist society. And as bad as obesity is in our country, you, or you or the next you have no right to infringe on someones personal choice. Now if a person is suffering from dementia, or some other form of disease where they can no longer make a capable, valid, safe decision on their own, than someone needs to be appointed to act on their behalf -- but sure as hell not when it comes to someone being fat.

I take back my previous comments. This woman is definitely a HOGG! You'd think at least she would dress a little better, rather than looking like a refugee from the Good will Thrift Store. How many chins can we count here? ? ?

#61 - yes, that "outfit" sure looks "luxurious". I just love to see a woman who takes care of herself.....wonder if her size 40 bloomers have holes in 'em.....

He's just another Idiot    

I don't like her screeching voice (she hurts my ears) or her pathetic face and body. With all of her money, you would think she would go to a Gym and buy nicer clothes. I did get a big laugh at her silly hat, though, when she performed in Washington DC.
