aretha franklin wants to be on broadway

We'd love to see you up on stage, Aretha!

After celebrating her 69th Birthday and getting dangerously close to 70, mortality thoughts have kicked in for Aretha Franklin, and she's developed a Bucket List:

“I’m going to sail the Nile before it’s all over. I would like to see the Pyramids and the Sphinx…I want to do Broadway — on my terms."

“I’m really taking far better care of myself… I feel fabulous…(Designers Marc Jacobs and Oscar de la Renta) are cutting special things just for me.”

All sounds wonderful, Aretha! We'll keep an eye out for your name on the theater marquees!

Would U like to see Aretha Franklin on Broadway?

    There's being a "diva" for the fun of a public persona, then there's being an entitled, selfish individual. Unfortunately, Aretha falls into the latter category. Why is it that someone who happens to be able to sing, act or dance can continually behave like a spoiled child and continue to be loved by the public? Her "only on my terms" Broadway comment furthers my dislike for her.



  2. 2

    Please. She's such a diva she would no-show more than she would perform. She cant handle the grueling daily grind of Broadway. And they better reinforce the stage.



  3. 3

    Possibly the worst live performer I've ever seen.

    I love her to death, but she'd never be able to handle Broadway - she'd probably do only a few shows a week and call in sick the rest of the time. on top of that, her voice isn't what it used to be…

    that tent she's wearing looks fab!

    I have seen Aretha many times, but her performances are so hot and cold that she is not worth the effort of attending. If she feels like doing a good show, she will, but otherwise, she becomes a rip-off artist.
    Her terms should be to please the audience, not all this crap she decides on - i.e. no air conditioning in the theater.
    I also agree that she cannot handle the broadway schedule.
    Give it up girl, and just do performances that you can handle, with the right attitude for your fans.

    Aretha should try Vegas! The buffets are to die for!

    I've seen her perform live and it was probably the worst concert I've ever been too. Also, her sudden and extreme weight loss is obviously due to gastric bypass surgery, but her extreme arrogance (aka The Star Jones Syndrome) won't allow her to be honest with the public about how she lost 100 lbs in 4 months. Diet and exercise my ass! By the way, she still looks like shit!



  9. 9

    Yeah, I'd see her on Broadway, and 42nd, 43rd, and 44th streets all at once.

    She is an obese gorilla with a big fat down syndrome tongue.
    She is a disgusting liar who had a gastric bypass which caused her to lose a lot of fat, but she lies and says she did it naturally. I despise liars.
    She wears fur all the time. Only a vile heartless person does that.
    She's a vile heartless pig.
    She's also an old woman who can't sing anymore.
    Hang up the mic King Kong.

    If Aretha set her mind to it and walked the walk, it would be top drawer.



  12. 12

    Are there any sturdy enough stages in New York to hold that sexy beast up??



  13. 13

    Aretha Franklin is a piimp

    Aretha has lost a great deal of weight and i looking fabulous. If she were to do a run on broadway, it would have to be a very limited run. I do not think she would be up to anything too strenuous. However I will say she still has the best voice out there today. There is no one that can touch her as far as a singer.



  15. 15

    BOHEMOTH!
