She's one doughnut short of a gastric explosion that endangers her audience. Her doctor should be given an award for saving lives.

You people are RUDE! I suppose you are all perfect and have no vices? so what, Ms. Franklin is a large woman, when you can belt it out like she can then maybe you can be rude. having met her several times i can also attest to the fact that Ms. Franklin is by far one of the nicest, most giving people I have ever met! So here's to you Ms. Franklin feel better soon. Ross and i are thinking of you! To all you others....go screw yourselves!

She can't be too bad off if she can still do her Thanksgiving program at the local church.

Some people can be so RUDE and SAD instead of making sick comments about Aretha (who inspired & help open doors for many singers of today) You should be wishing her well. Those of you making such SICK comments may weight 900 lbs down the road yourselves. Be careful what you speak. Best Wishes to the Queen of Soul Aretha!!!!

You have obviously never done any work for the farm animal. She is nothing short of a hog. Besides the fact she doesn't pay her bills, she lives in a beautiful mansion on the outside, but the inside is cluttered with filth and garbage. You can take a hog out of the ghetto and even make her rich, but you can't take the ghetto out of the hog! Love your music Aretha, can't stand you though!

I agree with you Kim. It amazes me that so many people have so much hate and lack of self respect, that they need to spread that hatred in a forum. The same people are always sharing hate. I guess the empty lives they lead prompts them to spend all their time in these such forums. Now Jethroe, Tony, and Xanadu, you are the real trash of Detroit! I hope and pray you do some good with your sorry ass lives.

You are obviously one of those democrats that talks out of both sides of your mouth. You are only offended when someone insults you, not when you here your side hurl the insults. EVERYTHING I SAID IS THE ABSOLUTE TRUTH! I would respect Aretha if she wasn't the arrogant, disrespectful, fat hog bitch that she is. I wanted so much to continue my admiration of her, and was thrilled when I was hired to do work for her. I went above and beyond to satisfy every demand of hers, no matter how petty I thought it was. All that effort to only be shafted and disrespected. Hate is not something I spend much time on, but that fat bitch made it easy. Until you know what you are talking about, it might be a good idea for you to keep your mouth shut. It only exposes how ignorant of the facts that you are.

Obskeptic my husband works for her quite frequently and she has never been anything but good to the both us, so dont tell me I dont know what Im talking about. No one has insulted me, they have insulted a woman I have nothing but great respect for. She has done for the music industry than anyone else out there. She has paved the way for women in music. She can sing in 5 octaves. Im sorry Ms. Franklin wasn't pleased with your work however calling her a fat bitch isnt exactly the proper way to handle it. Maybe your work just isnt as good as you seem to think it is!

What bothers me is how people like you worship a celebrity due to a talent which made them millions from "US". Aretha, along with every other celebrity, succeeded in doing something they were gifted with and enjoyed doing so. By chance, they made an impact perhaps due to an extraordinary difference from many others. Regardless, their money came from us.

Big deal she can sing in 5 octaves. So can many other singers. The fact remains, if a person is nice to you but rude to the waiter, they are still a rude person. If Franklin is incapable of being friendly to the people who made her what she is, she doesn't deserve respect, no matter how many times you play that song.

Celebrities put their pants on one leg at a time as we all do. I tire of you celebrity worshiping tools who think these people are Gods when you should be idolizing those who truly deserve our respect such as firemen/women, police officers, nurses and doctors. Police and fire earn pennies compared to celebrities and give back much more.

Bottom line, Aretha Franklin is a rude obnoxious egotistical pig who believes she is above everyone else. She should have much money saved from not paying her bills in order to pay for the custom coffin she'll need when her heart finally gives out.

Government Foe has a lot of hate inside of him. I wonder what took place in his childhood that caused him to be such a hateful person? Was he molested by an uncle or parent? Did he discover he is a homosexual and can't deal with who he really is? I wonder.

Interesting how you reference to sexuality along with your last words of "I wonder". It appears your homosexual tendencies are taking over and emerging with curiosity. Be careful, you can get into big trouble touching the wrong guy.

That was a smart response. Please spread your hate elsewhere. You really should reflect and seek professional help with your childhood abuse.
