Is this some kind of joke or maybe a comedy album?
kevex saidWow, finally. The OP isn't trolling us with his bisexuality stories.
Muscles25 saidUrethra couldn't find the pitch -- or the melody -- if her life depended on it. They should dangle some fries in front of her to get her away from that microphone.
Svnw688 saidHahaha, the Aretha Franklin rendition is BUSTED
But the mere fact that she's ARETHA FRANKLIN is enough to make people, myself included, want to listen to it. Aretha Franklin had a smash hit "Respect" in 1967 before Adele was a twinkle in her parents' eyes. Aretha Franklin is 72 years old, of course her voice isn't like a 20 year olds.
And while I love Adele, seriously I do, she'll be a flash in the pan compared to Aretha. In part because of a talent deficiency (Adele's throat is so blown-out she regularly sees her specialist and cancels performances), and because the music industry has changed (more flavors that play and then fizzle, as opposed to the industry or a label backing a star and investing in them like a stock option).
So, hate as much as you want, Aretha is still Aretha. That's pretty good for 72.
xrichx saidI heard it on NPR this morning and I have to agree, it's kinda bad. At the very least, they could have done a different arrangement to match her vocal range and singing style. But it was pretty much a karaoke version of Rolling In The Deep.
I prefer to remember Aretha like this..

I know this bitter queen didn't just bust out a fry joke about a legendary diva. She's more loved than you, more admired than you, likely has more money than you, and has added more joy to the world than you likely ever will.
Yeah, she's totally a fat fuck who's addicted to fries and is utterly talentless. Care to insult any other great music legends (who admittedly passed their prime, but are still awesome in old age)? Elton John's a fat old queen, right? And Diana Ross is a one-trick pony, huh? You probably actually like Miley and Justin Bieber's music.

I remember watching ^that performance with my mom with us both just sitting there and when she flung that wig into the audience, I fucking lost it...I legit felt like I was dying....I was saying "Did she just....I KNOW she didn't just snatch herself"
