Aretha Franklin -- 2 Days, 2 Weaves, 1 Dress

6/15/2010 2:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

After wearing this sparkling copper gown with a dyed-to-match polyester wig to the Tony Awards on Sunday (left), Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin wore it again on Monday -- but this time with a frizzy 'do -- to perform at the Apollo Theater with her pocketbook (right).

She should be the poster woman for "un-happy people". She always looks miserable. She is a very unhappy person, you can just see it in every picture she takes.



I wish her some happiness.

Exactly. At 68, she has earned the right to do whatever she wants. She is the Queen!



As for me, poor crack head Whitney...this is what I'll look like by the end of the year.

Number 1: Ms. Franklin's wearing the same dress, to two appearances, is called "practical". She probably flew to New York, with ONE bag. (I went to Europe, last January, and carried ONE carryon. Nothing to "check", and get lost, by the airline!)



Number 2: Hairpieces are easier to roll-up, and pack, than evening gowns.



Number 3: Ms. Franklin's talents are LEGENDARY! And, for all the people, writing on this blog, who truly ARE "UGLY"...with no skills to speak of...please remember that Aretha Franklin has forgotten more than you, or the sad ho's, who "sing", these days, will know, on your best day! She is timeless. She is ageless. She can still "holla". And, the world agrees that she will always be an extraordinarily gifted individual.



Number 4: What's YOUR "claim-to-fame"?

First of all, Aretha does not fly. She is afraid of flying. So she takes the train or a tour bus to her destinations.



Second of all, the diva CAN do whatever she wants. I still can't believe she stepped in for Pavoratti and sang "Nessa Dorma" at whatever award show it was. Not only does she deserve RESPECT in English, but Italian too!

(...and, what is a "pocketbook"?) If Ms. Franklin was appearing, onstage, and had no one accompanying her...she obviously wouldn't leave her HANDBAG...backstage...at the APOLLO, or any other venue.

I think "Betty White" wore the same black and white outfit on the "View" and "Good Morning America" this week :0)
and why did both show discuss the same topics and received the exact same answers from "Betty White"?

She needs to wear a dress that covers up more. I hope she gets a breast reduction, she would able to find clothes to fit better
