Poor Aretha. I really like her. I wonder if it’s too late for her to do a little exercise. However, she does look a bit slimmer than she was in her last public picture. For her own health, I hope she can continue to just move a little more than normal, to burn off a few calories at a time. Believe me, I’m taking my own advice, too.

Love you Aretha!

#4 Does it matter she's been having a man that loves her for her weight doesn't matter to all men unlike you. Hopefully one day you'll learn the hard way.

She may be the Queen of Soul - but she's another famous person who feels like they don't have to pay their bills. She is ledgendary about stiffing people when it comes time to pay.

We need Aretha around strong and assertive, and I'm concerned about her health. Lose 50 pounds by April 2010 >>> up the calcium, drop the sugars, no big meals. That simple equation works wonders.
