    Is she trying to look like Aunt Jemima with that awful rag on her head?????

  9. 9

    Yeah..that was really bad!

  10. 10

    I didnt really care for her singing, it sounded a bit off.
    But I LOVED her hat! I would never wear it, but its just one of those things i would love to have in my closet…

  11. 11

    She lives here in metro Detroit and people around here talk about sightings of her like they've seen bigfoot!

  12. 12

    had=hat right?
    fucking proof read dunbass!

  13. 13

    Don't you mean "FUG HAT" not "fug had"?

  14. 14

    PEREZ! You are crossing the line with this one. This could have been said 3000 different ways then the way you said it. Shame on you.

  15. 15

    umm had? or hat?

  16. 16

    Re: harrybalsac – what about recipes?

  17. 17

    LOVE me some Aretha but it is well known she will not perform in an air conditioned auditorium, thinking it's not good for her pipes. For her to belt it out in 20 degree weather is actually a rather big deal!

  18. 18


  19. 19

    Didn't I see her on a bottle of maple syrup?

  20. 20

    Fire the stylist & get Ms. Franklin a cordless spaceheater! that poor woman must have been freezing out there… isn't she like almost 70?? wtf… she's legend. No need for disrespect.

  21. 21

    Re: mama of 2 – Letty sneeked back in to see if we where fuckin'again.

  22. 22

    Was that a preview for American Idol tonight!!! The ones that didn't make it.

  23. 23

    gawd when is this SEA HAG gonna retire??…as if they couldnt have gotten someone who would actually sing the song well..That was awful..she just screams anyway….booooooo!!

  24. 24

    Re: harrybalsac – harry are you breaking up with me because of my caveman lover??

  25. 25

    lol I thought it was okay.

  26. 26

    You say…

    "She was as big as an elephant in an overweight black woman suit"

  27. 27

    Re: mama of 2 – It her new song sung to the melody of "Respect"!

  28. Jen2u says – reply to this


    Whats so bad? Okay it is that bad.

  29. 29

    She looked like a present.

  30. 30

    Re: harrybalsac – sneaky letty!
    she can join in if she wants..and alice too!
    sprinkle a little diva and moose and we got ourselves a party!

  31. 31

    she was so off and sounded sooo horrible!!

  32. 32

    Re: mama of 2 – lol…

  33. 33

    I thought it was courageous of her to honor the crew of US Airways Flight 1549 by wearing one of the wings from the plane on her hat.

    I also have heard reports that Ms. Franklin had her own bird strike after this performance…and it involved a flock of birds from Popeye's…

  34. 34

    her singing was ok. . . but her hat alittle out their. I could see someone whose young wearing that, but not someone is her age.

  35. 35

    Re: harrybalsac – lol
    i'm slow today!

  36. 36

    Re: mama of 2 – No I grunt like him when we doin'it too!

    Re: BettyBummer

    ROTFL!!!! hahahaha!!!!

  38. 38

    Poor Aretha, and love you Perez but use some spell check.

  39. 39

    Of course it would have been SO much better with Perezious or some thug gangster singing it, right? When it's your party, invite who you want.

  40. buck says – reply to this


    lets just hope that she was paid a very small portion of the $170 million for the inauguration.

  41. 41

    I can totally see Amy Winehouse in that hat.

  42. 42

    Re: mama of 2 – I am so in. I like honey and/or oil and/or jello. I also like candlelit dinners, moonlit walks on the beach, and dirty talk.

  43. 43

    Love it ! what the hell….can't a lady like her have some fashion fun ?

  44. 44

    Re: _Alice_ – it is a party don't you think?!
    we need a jailbird cow too though!

  45. 45

    she is definitely rusty, and it wasn't a good performance.
    and that hat is hideous!!

  46. 46

    I've heard better pipes on a 69 chevelle.

  47. 47

    PEREZ your typos are starting to get to me!


    She was singing in 25 degree weather with a windchill of 11!!!!

    cmon perez!

    And I liked her hat!

  48. 48

    I cnt stand this old fat biotch….her screaming is horrendous….bitch cant sing who ever said she could

  49. 49

    Re: _Alice_ – you are sooo romantic! ;)

  50. elo says – reply to this


    Picking on Aretha Franklin is low, the woman is more talented and had more than her share of troubles than most of us.

  51. 51

    your going to hell for talkin sidewayz…..go call jenny craig or someone who can deflate your enourmous sized bobble head you have on you shoulderz!!

  52. 52

    omg she was horrible.

  53. 53

    I think she did fine. Whats wrong with it? Shes not the young, vivacious singer she used to be. Jesus, cut her some slack. Shes a legend. I understand the hat is ridiculous, but her singing was just fine to me.

  54. 54

    awww why yall treatinq her like that..i was badd..but shes old now…so leave her the fuck alone

  55. 55

    the tack factor at this shindig is off the charts!!! HAAHAA!!!

  56. 56

    Re: mama of 2 – I'M HERE AND WILLING TO DO AS TOLD!!

  57. Marji says – reply to this


    I HATE her voice!!
    And, for her to FORGET the words like that is SO un-American! Especially being in such a public venue!
    They should have picked someone at least a little more worthy for an Inauguration!

  58. 58


  59. 59

    I couldn't disagree more. I thought she sang beautifully and it was full of emotion.

  60. 60

    Have some respect.

  61. 61

    There is really no way to say it delicately….. WOW!

  62. 62

    i am SO glad you commented on this because i thought she was beyond awful. why would they choose here to sing??

  63. 63

    I thought she was great…especially considering how hard it is to sing in 15 degree weather!

  64. 64

    It was defiantly not her best moment…but it wasn't THAT bad! I'd rather listen to that over and over for a full 24 hours, than listen to that Brooke Hogan shit for 24 seconds!

  65. 65

    Re: LettyB – Later :)

  66. 66

    Oh man, so funny you posted this. when I saw this on tv, I was thinking the same thing. I couldn't understand a fucking word she was singing. I think she forgot the words 1/2 thru and just muttered something. It was very very bad.
    I think everyone on the National Mall knew it as well. And equally bad was that woman who said that poem, elizabeth something. wtf was her poem about? Terrible. Everything else was fine in the inauguration.

  67. 67

    I thought her singing was horrible. Her fashion was A-ok.. loved the hat. Sorry Aretha, I love ya but you just didn't "bring it"

  68. 68

    She looked like a big Christmas present up there…and she was so off tune. It was so funny I was laughing the whole time.

  69. Yokel says – reply to this


    she's has probably earned a little more latitude and a lot more respect than you're giving her

  70. 70

    I was expecting her to sound good…what happened to her voice? They would've been better off with Diana Ross, Barbara Streisand or even Mariah Carey.

  71. 71

    Aretha Franklin is, has and will always be a living legend. She is the original diva, and at 67 years old in near freezing temperatures, she can still sing better than most. Let's not forget that, perez. :) R-E-S-P-E-C-T.

  72. 72

    singing was a little off, but not that bad, we all have heard worse. But that hat..I WANT IT!

  73. 73

    Yeah, she doesn't have the pipes she used to have…I think it's due to breathing issues…she's quite big.

  74. 74

    so this was on today at lunch and i was wondering the whole time… what the hell is on her head?

  75. 75

    It was awful. I expected a much better performance. I think her health (probably caused by her weight) has effected her singing abilities. It sounded like she had a hard time getting the words out.

  76. AyanW says – reply to this


    All of you are fucking racist. She was great, everyone needs to stop hating.

  77. 77

    The hat, her voice..Whao!!!….Oh well, I forgive Aretha, she is old….

    Now, Michelle Obama with that horrible brocade yellow dress and green gloves…What the fuck was that? Glitter at 12 O'clock in the afternoom? Are we in the 70's? ……This dress is uglier that the red and black she wore when Obama won the election….

    A note: Both dresses, the red and black and the hideus today's yellow dress were taylor by cubans….Oh yes!…The red and black-Narciso Rodriguez (He is excellent but I guess he supported McCain and wanted Michelle to look like a nightmare)- And the yellow one is made by a cuban american from New Jersey…Hey Perez, hope you tell your people to stop dressing Michelle, the woman is ugly as she is, she doesn't need more enemies!

  78. 78

    Wow, she doesn't even sound good.

  79. 79


    like i really do i think its gorgoues!

  80. 80

    Very disturbing to watch, a living legend….way past her best. Someone should have stopped her from performing………the outfit…could't care less!

  81. 81

    sorry, Perez… but you just can't say that about Aretha.
    you're just jealous because she's the kind of diva you wish you could be.
    don't be an asshole.

  82. 82

    W O W!!!! I don't mean in a good way. I mean WOW in a bad, terrible, horrible, "bless her heart" kind of way….

  83. 83

    Re: Lillah_98 – I thought the poem was ok (just ok) but the way the writer recited it was distracting to say the least!

  84. 84

    She sucks! Give her a Big Mac! Singing was horrible, off-tone and out-of breath. Because her bow tie cant fit around her pig neck, she wore it as a hat. Vomit!!!

  85. 85

    it was REALLY awful.

  86. 86

    SOOOO not that bad, god it could be so much worse, just think about all the trow away "singers" our generation has created. At least she can sing.

  87. 87

    I think she sounded just fine, but I DID thing that was Amy Winehouse when the big pink "play" button was covering her face. Hat is great though.

  88. 88

    Damn! Who DRESSES this bitch????????

  89. 89

    I meant throw away not trow away!!

  90. 90

    Obama is dragging everybody in from the Clinton administration including Aretha. She only agreed to come if they cooked her a dinner of ham hocks, blackeye peas, collard greens loaded with fatback and some sweet potato pie for dinner.

  91. 91

    Re: AyanW – Ok, who the fuck critized Aretha for being black? Nobody.-Aretha's hat and her voice were horrible….And you think just because she is black people can't critized her? Her critics are not racists, they simple have…GOOD TASTE!

  92. 92

    This fatty apparently cant sing deserve to be sent back to her birth country/jungle. She's too fat to swing on trees. She's got to quit eating McDs.

  93. 93

    i thought it was soulful and moving

  94. 94

    Re: jbazluh – Why would they choose her? It's why they chose 90 percent of the people to perform, or recite, or whatever - because the color of her skin was right. I'm seeing alot of "reverse racism" in this inauguration, and the picking of his posse.

  95. 95

    She and her hat are FAB-U-LOUS. Do not hate on Aretha.

  96. 96

    Re: mama of 2 – Love the avi! LOL!

  97. 97


  98. 98

    Listen, aretha is a woman that deserves RESPECT! Ok she has done WA?YYYmore than you have little fat perez. She is a strong woman and she has contributed more to society than your lazy fatass has, so really just cool it you fag and stop disrespecting ARETHA!!!!

  99. 99

    I personally liked the "My Coun….try" opening. Dangerously close to using the big, bad C word there Aretha!

  100. 100

    LOL That was exactly my thought as I watched it this morning..terrible.
