RANK: What's The Best Cover Song Of All Time??

| Filed under: Music MinutePrinceDolly PartonPollsWhitney HoustonPlay With Perez

Good cover songs come when an artist takes the original and brings their own style to it.

GREAT covers are when an artist makes it so much their own that people nearly forget the original!

But what is the best cover song of all time??

Can anything beat Whitney Houston slaying her cover of Dolly Parton's I Will Always Love You? Maybe Sinead O'Connor's fragile take on Prince's Nothing Compares 2 U?

(Did you even realize I Love Rock And Roll wasn't a Joan Jett original??)

Vote and let us know what YOU think, Perezcious readers!

Aretha Franklin Still Beefing With Dionne Warwick Via FAX MACHINE Is Just One Example Of Hollywood's Longest Running Feuds!

| Filed under: Celebrity FeudsWhitney HoustonAretha Franklin

no title

Aretha Franklin is still upset with Dionne Warwick, over five years after the latter incorrectly labeled her as Whitney Houston's godmother at the funeral.

To Aretha, who was absent from the sad event due to suffering from swollen feet, this was not R-E-S-P-E-C-T-ful. And she recently said as much to the AP, in a lengthy fax calling the comments "libelous." In a followup phone interview, she said:

"She blatantly lied on me… fully well knowing what she was doing."

Apparently Aretha feels this misinformation was incredibly damaging to her. So much so that the feud continues in person.

When both performed last week at the Tribeca Film Festival in support of the documentary Clive Davis: The Soundtrack Of Our Lives, Dionne tried to bury the hatchet — but it wasn't happening! Aretha recalls:

"She said, 'Give me a hug.' I said, ‘Oh hell no. You couldn't be serious.'

Damn, girl! Of course, this is far from the longest grudge we've heard of…
