ARETHA FRANKLIN: AIN’T NOTHING LIKE THE REAL THING

115363PCN_Franklin02cut

Aretha Franklin, 72, (minus the fur coat) is looking the best we’ve seen her in years! She’s lost a lot of weight and her legs look great! Aretha has started work on a new d and she’s collaborating with Andre 3000 and Babyface. We’re told the music will have its Donna Summer moments and Barbra Streisand moments. Andre 3000 has been busy working on his Jimi Hendrix movie.

    She looks good here, like she’s lost a ton of weight. We had tickets to a tribute to her that was being televised for pbs at the Kodak in Hollywood. We were asked to move up front (seat fillers, they do this all the time) and they put us in the front row, which we thought was pretty cool. Then Denzel’s fam came in (late) and they moved us back half a dozen rows, but this turned out to be better becuz we were right next to this raised platform that Aretha sat on. I smiled and waved at her and said “we love you” or something inane like that and she blew me a kiss. Anyway, she was a lot heavier then, this was a few years ago.

    That’s great Georgie! Lucky!!
    I just got thrown out of the YES concert in Victoria for smoking in the restroom.
    In my junior high school yearbook in 1976 I was voted most likely to get thrown out of a YES concert. true
    It happened, in a Roundabout way.
    Maybe I was a little to Close To The Edge.
    Oh well, the big Harbeth speakers at home sound better than live.

    Retha COULD sing but as she ages it is not really anything you want to hear. She is an extremely arrogant BLACK, living on past accomplishments. Move on.

    I dont approve of wearing fur but Miss Franklin is old school and obviously does.

    The weight loss is significant and a major improvement, looks great.

    yeah, I was wondering the same thing…if she sounds good or not…you know old Frank Sinatra just wouldn’t give it up…

    She was so great in “Blues Brothers”, one of the best movies ever made. If you haven’t seen it, do it.

    Treat her like a lady!!
    Dare I admit that I am a lifelong fan of Ms.
    Aretha Franklin. A couple of years ago, Aretha
    was in the hospital, since that scare, she has
    regrouped, and is performing again.
    Congrats to Ms. Aretha on her recent birthday celebration. We all should be so lucky to be a part of the 70′s and than experience that 72nd birthday.
    P.S.
    After all these years, Aretha is Not afraid to wear her fur coats, or to show her (still shapely)legs!!
