ARETHA FRANKLIN IS STILL GROPING FOR A LOOK

A friend sent this photo of Aretha Franklin appearing on Oprah’s show and we confess we winced. We love Aretha, but just because she lost a ton of weight doesn’t mean she looks good in EVERYTHING! Her stylist should be fired for letting her go onstage in this shapeless white dress that accentuates all the wrong things. Sleeves would be a welcome addition. But her hair and make up look great.

    I’m cutting Aretha a break. She’s probably happy just to be alive and still have her amazing voice.

    But I agree, sleeves would be good.

    She doesn’t look bad considering she was at death’s door!

    More subtle racism from Janet.

    Some see racism wherever they turn. They are the ones looking for a fre ride on lifes escalator.

    Aretha is unfortunately a used up has been who has been a has been for long. She should just retire. I am happy she didnt die but she looks terrible, she cant sing any more or move and is like a large black buffalo (Janet jackson listen) on stage. She has the uppity black attitude of ‘dont diss me’ and noone would pay much for her to perform because she will cancel. Take what is left of your life and money and retire.

    I agree she needs sleeves. However, she wore things exactly like that when she was at her largest so I guess when she looks in the mirror now, she sees a smaller person and better look nonetheless. I am glad she is much healthier.

    I, too, am glad she is much healthier and will be w/ us longer! But she needs to know and follow this axiom: Every woman’s best friend after age 45 is… sleeves. And yes, this includes me! :)

    racism? Don’t think so.
    Sleeves would work better here… and a different color.

    Like so many stars/famous folks, everybody is afraid to tell her the truth, have you seen Ivana Trump lately, her arms look 1,000 times worse than Aretha’s and yet she is still wearing bikinis.

    I wish Strom and all the anti-Stromites would go vent somewhere else! You freaks are now taking up half of all comments.

    Oh, Aretha! A white designer bath sheet?

    I think not.

    Its true there are far too many comments about things other than the threads. Never a one of them is started by me and I could care less about any other poster’s so called life.

    Well them strom, why don’t you stick to the post subject and stop ragging on your racist ideas because all of the other poster here are swick to death of you.

    As for Aretha, I am SO glad she lost so much weight and is battling whatever is/was wrong with her health.
    As for her choice of perforance outfits, I have NEVER seen her in anything attractive or that looked good on her. Does she even have a stylist? Or a professional dress maker?? Because this piece looks like she was lying naked in bed and someone came to her door so she jumped up and grabbed the top sheet and quickly and unconcernedly wrapped it around her, intending to dress later. She answered the door to recieve her flowers, then proceeded to hair and make-up forgetting the sheet altogether because she was so comfortable. Problem solved.

    Yes it is true that Aretha is wearing a very unflattering piece of cloth and her arms are exposed,which is Not exactly a pretty sight, But at least she is Not showing the full advantage of her cleavage which she is known to do. At the “respectable” age of 69,and having recently lost 85 pounds, Aretha will find time to improve her wardrobe appearance while reconnecting with the audiences who are happy that she is out of the hospital and back on stage. PEACE!!

    Please. Mike Douglass looked like cat vomit Janet said caca.

    Miss Franklin was at deaths door so I think she looks ok. Janet is both racist classist and misogynist what else is new.
