Looking good, Aretha!

Just in time for her special tribute at Sunday night's Grammys, Aretha Franklin was spotted sitting in the second row with Rev. Jesse Jackson at the Detroit Pistons basketball game in Auburn Hills, Michigan Friday night.

This is one of her first appearances since her surgery last December.

When asked how she was doing, Aretha said she was "feeling really great" and plans to reschedule the shows that she had to cancel due to her surgery.

In fact, looks like her first show will at Radio City Music Hall in May!

That's fantastic news! Glad you're doing well, bb!

    PANCREATIC CANCER IS SURVIVABLE IF IT IS CAUGHT EARLY ENOUGH AND I THINK THE PANCREATIC CANCER THING WAS A RUSE FOR HER HAVING BREAST REDUCTION AND GASTRIC BYPASS SURGERIES. AT LEAST SHE'S NOT A METH HEAD LIKE SOMEONE WE KNOW, RIGHT PEREZ?



  2. 2

    Wow, stomach stapling seems to have done the trick. Shes already 1/3 of the size she was!



  3. 3

    where'd all the comments that were here last night go?



  4. 4

    the cancer thing was all proved to be a rumour

    my vote goes to fat removal/tummy tuck/stomach/reduction/breast reduction

    some combination probably and being mysterious like Star Jones was tends to backfire

    if I'm correct in my assumptions-bottom line is that I am glad that she has finally done something that will save her life–she was morbidly obese

    I kind of liked her more when she was supposedly suffering from pancreatic cancer.

    Why the fuck is she with that piece of shit Jesse Jackson??



  7. 7

    Why does that fucking Rev. Jesse Jackson ONLY sit with celebrities ?!? He's going to go straight to fucking hell when he kicks the bucket !!!

    That fatass bitch didnt have cancer…she had gastric bypass so that her has could finally sit in a damn seat at the game…shes so annoying.



  9. 9

    Oh yeah, she definitely had gastric bypass surgery, or something like it. She looks great! If she did have the surgery, I hope she'll be open about it. If it works, it works.

    Again, she looks AMAZING for her age.

    Love her voice and the songs she has done but I've worked with her and she is a racist bitch and a slob.



  11. 11

    WOW, LOOK AT THAT RACIST BLACK DOUCHE HOVERING OVER ARETHA LIKE A FUCKING VULTURE. NO ONE CAN STAND JACKSON UNLESS THEY A RACIST LIKE HIM. ARETHA, SAY IT AINT SO… DONT LET HIM RUB HIS RACIST BLACK AGENDA OFF YA.
