I knew that there would be some negative comments about Aretha. Not everyone is into skinny women. Only a dog likes bones. So what if she's heavy. She's never been a skinny women to begin with. Everyone has different body types. Not everyone is the same. Weight gain shows that a person is comfortable with themselves. She could care less what you guys think of her. Apparently her man likes it so who cares what you guys think? If you guys had money like her, you'd probably be a little heavier as well. It's not uncommon for celebs to gain weight. It happens to lots of them. And it usually happens when they are comfortable and happy. But of course the media is always gonna have something to say about their appearance. Hell nobody is perfect. I'd like to see how alot of you will look at age 67. I think she looks good.

I just love her attitude. Her voice is wonderful. She has more soul than 40 teenage boy bloggers. She has class. She is who she is, and if you don't like her, she does not care.
Grade A act, who shaped American music so much.

I wonder how Harvey and the rest of the TMZ gangstas would age when they reach 67. Just the thought of it sends shivers up my spine (ugh)

honesty    

Anyone rude enough to call this wonderful woman names because they do not know who she is, or because of how she looks to them are shallow, pitiful excuses for human beings. I feel so sorry for you, and the many things in your life you will miss because it does not fit into your little universe, you are too lazy to look it up, and you judge people on how they look, instead of who they truly are. So so sad that such a wonderful woman, that has given so much to keep people fed, houses over their heads, moved forward civil rights, and has a voice given to her by God, would have such trash thrown at her. A saint she is not, nor is she perfect, but she is a great human being. How dare anyone insult her, without knowing what she has done, or who she is.
