Aretha Franklin Gets Out Of A Parking Ticket Through The Power Of Song!

aretha franklin sings her way out of parking ticket

Not fair! That NEVER works for us! Ha!

Aretha Franklin was out to dinner at Neely's Barbecue Parlor in NYC on Monday, when a parking enforcement officer started to write her a parking ticket for being illegally parked.

The Queen of Soul did some seriously quick thinking, and she started singing to the officer in an effort to get out of the ticket…and it worked!

Instead of writing her a ticket, the officer had Aretha write HER an autograph!

Way to beat the system, Aretha! We would have LOVED to have been there for that!

Have U ever gotten out of a ticket in a creative way?

    I'd love to be the officer that says 'yes, I gave Aretha Franklin a ticket because she was ILLEGALLY parked". Nice job enforcing the peace, people aren't supposed to park there for a reason obviously.

    I just blew the meter maid.

    It's bad enough that celebrities are above the law..But actually supporting it takes it to a whole new level..

    Too funny and creative, singing for her supper. : )
    Hey, if an officer has a fit of actual empathy and decides to protect and serve,
    that's just fine by me. More of them could do this; as we the people pay their salaries.

    another bitch gets special treatment…the officer should be fired and franklin arrested for bribery…
    enough of the special privileges when everyone else has to follow the rules or get fucked…
    glad u wrote this cuz now its out and karma says she'll get justice soon.

    wtf??!??! so someone who can AFFORD THE ticket which is probably less than $50 can get out of it?! thats ridiculous - if i was a celeb, i would take the ticket and pay it and suck it up. seriously

    Re: GoLeafs13 – Really? I did a verbal song and dance once after being stopped, and got asked out for pizza, said no, and no ticket. I was nice; he was nice.
