aretha franklin whitney houston death


As we all know, Aretha Franklin and Whitney Houston had been close for a loooong time. And after her death, Aretha publicly praised her for her strengths.

But how did she react to the news?? It couldn't have been pretty…

Relaxing in a Charlotte hotel room watching The Descendents when the news came, she explains:

Maybe two minutes after I [turned off the movie], it came across the screen. I jumped up off the side of the bed … I just said, 'Oh my God. That's not good.'


Yikes, we're getting chills just thinking about that scene!!

Aretha, the Queen of Soul, actually JUMPED off the bed. OMG…

We cant even begin to imagine how her her family reacted… our thoughts are with them so much right now!!

    SADSIES?! Again, what is wrong with you. Try adjusting your tone when you're writing about a DEATH. I've been a reader for years but am fed up with your nonsense and will not be returning to this blog.

    Oh brother! All this is over a has been singer of other people's songs. WTF?! If Sweatney Houston was a band, she would be a copy band. She bought songs from talented people.

    I don't really understand this post… it sounds like an understated reaction from Aretha. I can't tell if Perez is being sarcastic about her reaction or honestly thinks Aretha's pathetic commentary and tiny bed jump was actually (somehow?) a big deal?

    "That's not good" Ya think?

    "Thats not good"… You think. I love Aretha Franklin but goodness if they were that close Id expect more. I guess she handles things pretty well though

    So much misinformation EVERYWHERE on the Whitney Houston story….first off, The Descendants is the George Clooney movie that is STILL IN THEATERS so I doubt that Aretha was watching it in a hotel room….and is Aretha her godmother, as has been reported, or not? And the breaking news was that Whitney was dead. Not sick, not taken to a hospital…DEAD. Yes, that's not good….

    Re: radiogaga22 – Maybe she was in shock. That is a pretty common thing when someone dies as well.

    Seriously, I don't even think I could find a single thirteen year old who would say sadsies. Wow.

    "'That's not good." lmao. Yeah, I'm getting chills too. She jumped off the bed because she dropped a drumstick on the floor from the bucket. God you talk like a childish little fruit, can you be any more of a ph..a.gg..o.t?
