The Queen Of Soul Disses Queen Latifah!

| Filed under: Film FlickersJennifer HudsonHalle BerryWendy Williams

Check out this interview from The Wendy Williams Show where the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, disses Queen Latifah.

Aretha, still as sassy as ever, IMMEDIATELY rejects Wendy Williams' suggestion for Queen Latifah to play her in an big screen adaptation of her life.

She gives no explanation why, but it sounds like she feels pret-ty strongly against that casting choice.

Who IS her first choice?

Halle Berry of course!

It's too bad Halle can't sing. However, Aretha doesn't seem to mind the idea of Jennifer Hudson playing her, which is a casting choice we can definitely get on board with.

Let's hope they pick someone soon because we'd REALLY love to see this movie happen!

Would U see a movie about Aretha Franklin? Who do U think should play her?

    ARETHA… I love you and you are my "Queen of Soul", but don't go dissing my lady Latifa. How many times does this most talented, lovely lady have to prove herself. Jennifer Hudson is a wonderful, beautiful talent, but she's so very young. She just doesn't have the miles to justify the "Queen of Soul". Please rethink your opinion.

    You know what, Aretha? Just because you went and had lipo doesn't mean that you haven't been a fatass for the majority of your life. Don't try to act like only skinny people can play you now. Of course you want to focus on your early part of your career because that's when you were the smallest. But then again, I wouldn't want a gay woman to play my fat ass either. Maybe that's why you object….

    I don't blame Aretha. Qeen Lesbo is a HORRIBLE actress.



  4. 4

    Re: granny j – All of those "people" you mentioned are terrible



  5. 5

    Just cause she said "No", doesn`t mean she "dissed" Queen Latifah. Are you trying to stir things up, Perez? Cause we don`t want that.



  6. 6

    I think Jennifer Hudson is a great choice



  7. 7

    from what i can tell..she doesnt want any "bigger" girls playing her…which i find kind of odd….



  8. 8

    How about Christina Aguilera?



  9. 9

    What a fucking BITCH!!! You need a bigger woman to play you because before your gastric bypass you have been a FATASS for the last 200 years of your life. Latifa can sing…Hallie Berry cant even act.



  10. 10

    HAHAHAHAH ROTFL!!! ARETHA IS DEFINITELY FROM DETROIT!!!! HAHAHAHA Detroit girls keeps it real… lol Cannot wait to see the whole interview … This is gonna be the highlight of my boring night.. XO



  11. 11

    I dont think its just the fact that she said no.. DID YOU SEE HER FACE WITH DISGUST when she said NO HAHHAAHAH!!!



  12. 12

    Perez, you shit stirring, shit stabber! All she said was 'no'.



  13. 13

    Funny people say Latifah and Berry can't act…I would like to see you all act in a movie..but nonetheless Arethra is delusional to believe that Berry could play her in a movie, she is not a stick therefore a stick-figure like Berry is not very authentic. Take a long look in the mirror lady!



  14. 14

    Halle Berry? is she Serious? Come on. That's a stretch if ever there was one. Halle wouldn't put on the fat suit. Geez. Jennifer can sing but she just lost all that weight, isn't going to want to do that- plus she's too young. Queen Latifah is right for it, but I can't imagine her wanting to do it after that rejection. Maybe Aretha has a problem with the lezzies. I think it needs to be some unknown gal.



  15. 15

    Ok, I know that this is bitchy, but Aretha has never been a particularly good-looking woman. Uber-talented - absolutely… but apparantly delusional as well. Both Latifa and Jennifer Hudson are more physically beautiful than her on her BEST day. Get real.



  16. 16

    How pathetic; it's like Urethra has already died (she sure looks dead)….



  17. 17

    How about Gabourey Sidibe, she could very easily gain an extra 100lbs to look just as disgusting as Urethra does IN REAL LIFE!



  18. 18

    Aretha is a delusional bitch. Halle Berry??? really??? Aretha was and is soooo fucking ugly. Inside and out. She should be lucky they get a semi good looking actress to play her part. An ugly actress would still be better than her



  19. 19

    I don't get why people are saying that Jennifer Hudson is too young to play her. I would assume that the biopic deals quite a bit with Aretha when she was young. It's easier to age a young person than to make a 40-something look 20-something. My first two thoughts when I heard that she wanted Halle Berry were that 1. Halle is too old, and 2. Halle is too skinny/pretty. Jennifer is skinny now, but I think she could pull off the "fat suit" better than Halle. Truth is, though, that Jennifer has a better voice than Aretha.

    jhud!



  21. 21

    halles a lop sweetheart. jennifers the right choice



  22. 22

    halle berry will never ever play you aretha, she is too beautiful and skinny to be you.
    Jennifer Hudson will be the most beautiful person to be you.



  23. 23

    i love Queen Latifa!!! Aretha betta drop those chicken wings because she was on some serious crack if she thought Halle Berry should play her ugly fat ass!!! PLEASE



  24. 24

    For once I'm going to stoop to a nasty comment. Aretha has no idea of what she's looked like for most of her life….Halle Berry could not do the look justice.
    Queen Latifah could bring off the attitude of Aretha because she is a good actress and the right size…well for the earlier part of the movie anyway…..later they'd have to pad her out.
    Some people who are called legends forget that they're still human and that we plebes can be very fickle and may stop calling her the Queen of Soul and start making up some unforgiving names.
    Get back down to earth Aretha!



  25. 25

    uh if you listen she is mid sentence i don't… no. i don't know how that's going to turn out. She didn't put her down.



  26. 26

    None of these women could pull off her ugly…….attitude.



  27. 27

    ARETHA IS LIKE 70 ALREADY. SIT YO FAT ASS IN THE NURSING HOME ALREADY. SHE CANT SING LIKE SHE USED TO EITHER… APPARENTLY HER FUCKED UP ATTITUDE HASNT CHANGED MUCH AT ALL. YEA, SHE THINKS SHE'S A HOT SUPERMODEL IN HER MIND BUT IN REALITY SHE'S JUST A FAT LADY WHO SANG IN CHURCH WHO'S NOW DEVELOPED A BITCHY FUCKED UP ATTITUDE. SHE BE ANGRY GRUMPY OLD LADY WHO SITS IN THE BIG HOUSE ATOP THE HILL SOON ENUFF. SRUSLY, WHENEVER THE BITCH SPEAKS THAT'S A FEW LESS PEOPLE SHOWING UP AT HER FUNERAL. ANGER MANAGEMENT. KEEPIN IT REALZ!!!!



  28. 28

    jennifer hudson has class looks and can sing

    halle has showed a ugly side recently one that will remain shown

    queen latifah is great for low class roles but not for something real like this



  29. 29

    This woman always gives cringeworthy interviews.



  30. 30

    She doesn't want a big 'ol lesbo playing her, period



  31. 31

    I think Fantasia would be perfect.



  32. 32

    Aretha is so delusional! You don't look like Halle Berry biotch! Queen Latifah is much more like you. Deal with it.



  33. 33

    @ this rate Verne Troyer is the PERFECT CHOICE.

    winning!



  34. 34

    I love Aretha, she's awesome…BUT seriously, her saying that Halle Berry should play her is a joke. Shouldn't the person playing her resemble her in some way?

    I think Jennifer Hudson would be a good fit though!



  35. 35

    OMG WHATABITCH!!



  36. 36

    Sorry I don't know her name–never watch the show. But how about the chubby, black girl from Glee?



  37. 37

    Actually Miss Aretha DID DISS Queen Latfah..as a gal wih southern roots I have seen that dismissive look on my elders faces when they heard something that they didnt like or disgusted them. Miss Aretha could've delivered her answer better but then again, she is older and probably feels absolutely no need to pretend otherwise. While, I thought that Queen Latifah's performance is Chicago was awesome, I don't think that she would be a good fit but then neither would Halle Berry. I would love to know why she said Halle Berry !!
