OT: Aretha feuding with Dionne

Postby face » Wed Apr 26, 2017 12:15 pm

Can you all believe this foolishness? http://www.cbsnews.com/news/aretha-fran ... s-funeral/.

I'm kind of concerned because Aretha is one of my all-time favorites, and it sounds like she may be losing her grip a bit. I also thought that Dionne was the one "diva" of her generation that Aretha actually got along with and respected, but I guess that was a fiction. The timing of this attack also suggests that Aretha may have felt a little jealous after hearing Dionne sing so well at Clive's event, while she herself was suffering from a cold and sounded like it. Who knows. What do you all make of this?

It's sad really, isn't it. I don't know that Dionne was trying to call out Aretha but even if she was it's not nice to drag this out in public. I suspect it was triggered by Dionne approaching Aretha more than anything else.
