Aretha Franklin -- The Queen's Latest Crown

First, the bad: (1) Miss Franklin NEVER has had a sense of style E-V-E-R. (2) She needs to pay more attention to her health..."She betta THINK" about the consequences of her actions" (i.e. eating) (3) she has ZERO charisma on the concert stage.......BUT...... the lady has made some of the most incredible pop music recordings the world has ever known......her intuitive piano playing skills are phenomenal--pure genius-- and her pop/soul/jazz vocal interpretive skills are matchless.

Ree Ree is proof that sometimes what we (the audience)can feel and hear are much more important than what we can see. So all in all I am very glad she has shared her musical talent with us.

Beyonce is a better singer than Aretha. Aretha can't even get through a song anymore without releasing 5 quarts of sweat.

I'm less worried about her hat than I am about her body. Seriously, what does she have under that dress? Foam insulation??

She HARDLY looks like she's walking on her "own power." She has one hand on a potted plant, and the other is being held by some bodyguard. That's not what I call walking unsupported.

She looks like one of those Magic Eye pictures. Seriously, if you stare at her cross-eyed long enough, you will se a picture of a beuatiful tropical island.

What do you mean by 'walking on her own power', like has she been wheel chair bound for awhile? And, if so what happened? The hat is too soon for the season, better for fall with a jacket. She not's walking on her own as guy holding her hand and the flower pot is supporting her too. But, otherwise, who really cares!!
