does anybody think the black members of the detroit city council will piss and moan about the fat black lady charging 45 to 50 dollars a ticket, and where she is performing?

remember, they complained about where jay leno was performing his "FREE for the people" shows.

I wouldnt pay a dime to listen to this big chic scream and bellow. Did you hear that she wants royalties for the big ugly hat she wore to Obamas inauguration because so many people " just loved it "? Give it a rest Aretha your time has come and gone just like the house you burned down for profit.

Are you sweet on Runny? You've followed him in several other topics, thus, I'm assuming you may have a thing for him.
