Madonna Slammed By Fans Over ‘Disrespectful’ Aretha Franklin Tribute At MTV VMAs

"This does not sound like a tribute to me", another said.

Aretha Franklin died with no will in place to distribute her fortune, which is believed to be worth millions, according to reports.

Aretha Franklin died last week at the age of 76. I shared part of my journey and thanked Aretha for inspiring me along the way. Her speech however wasn't received well by certain viewers as she was branded self-indulgent.

"I would expect that she has a house, probably a financial account of some kind - a brokerage account, stocks, bond, cash".

Franklin will be entombed at Detroit's Woodlawn Cemetery - alongside her father, Rev. C.L. Franklin, brother Cecil Franklin, sisters Carolyn and Erma Franklin and nephew Thomas Garrett. "I love-L O V E! and there is nothing anyone can say or do that will change that".

Delivering a five minute speech at last night's ceremony in New York, Madonna ended it by giving thanks to Franklin for "empowering all of us". "Then, one day, a French disco sensation was looking for backup singers and dancers for his world tour". "I thought Madonna was supposed to be paying homage to Aretha but all I heard was her paying homage to herself".

Another added: "I think your MIL has the cheek of the devil, muffin!" Fortunately, one of my favorite albums was Lady Soul by Aretha Franklin. We want to bring you to Paris and make you a star.

This is very surprising to many given the fact that Aretha was a well know singer with a lot of reputation to herself, a reputation that presumably comes with a lot of legal aid. I will sing it a cappella.' I could see they didn't take me seriously.

Madonna didn't have sheet music though so she made a decision to sing the song acapella because she knew it "off by heart" anyway - and even though she was "some skinny-ass white girl", she was still able to sing the song no bother. "Just kidding. I wasn't 'Madonna" yet. "I don't know what I said, I don't know what came over me".
