And basically, I'm only upset cause I feel like I may have let them down in some sort of way."

Well, all of them are marvelous but there's one pint-sized singer who is better than the rest in Aretha Franklin's eyes.
The 72-year-old singer was talking to Hoda Kotb on her satellite radio show, and the topic of people Miz Franklin would like to duet with came up.
And out of all of the new singers she chose… Ariana Grande!
Hear the interview (below) and see a video of Miz Grande covering Aretha too!
After the AH-Mazing Saturday Night Live 40th Anniversary show on Sunday, guests were definitely in a party mood!
So it's only appropriate that following the star-studded event, there was an even more star-studded after-party!
Hosted by MC Jimmy Fallon, the roaring shindig, held at New York's Plaza Hotel, delighted attendees with a plethora of kickass performances!
According to an insider:
The Queen still reigns supreme! Watch Aretha Franklin accept her Icon award at the 2014 Billboard Women In Music!
Such an honor to attend Billboard magazine's "Women In Music" luncheon, Friday in NYC.
Our beloved Taylor Swift was named Woman Of The Year - for the second time!
And some of our other faves were honored as well!
Check out some of our personal photos from the event!
Interviews Perez conducted, some acceptance speeches, performances and more - coming up!
When you're Aretha Franklin, you never have to hold back what you think!
And she doesn't!
The singer sat down with the Wall Street Journal to talk about her new album, Aretha Franklin Sings the Great Diva Classics, and during the 10 minute interview, she was asked what she thought about singers Adele, Alicia Keys, and Whitney Houston, and she had complimentary things to say.
It's possible that Aretha isn't a big fan of the ladies' music, but we didn't know she felt this un-strongly about them!

She's still down with Adele!!
After releasing the audio track of her Rolling in the Deep/Ain't No Mountain High cover this week, Miz Aretha Franklin has been making her late night TV rounds.
She stopped by David Letterman on Monday to perform the jam — but instead of listening to the song, we were totally distracted by one of her stage-mates…
Specifically, the familiar looking woman to the left!
Since we've got extensive diva knowledge, we had a feeling there was a famous face among the soul queen that evening — and it's none other than Whitney Houston's 81-year-old momma Cissy, singing backup!
First off, we're just so happy to see the gospel songstress is out, about and working these days. She looks just wonderful! But still, we couldn't help but notice her disinterest in the performance, which is odd especially since she's been singing backup for Aretha since the mid-1960s.
Maybe she's just not a fan of Adele! But — who doesn't love Adele?!
Ch-ch-check out the song (above) and try and guess Miz Houston's emotions throughout! It's pretty great!

Aretha Franklin is arguably one of the greatest female vocalists of all time…
So when we heard a living friggin' legend would be covering our queen Adele, we couldn't be more thrilled!
Lady Soul decided to take on the pop star's hit Rolling In The Deep — but make it her own, by adding additional riffs and some Ain't No Mountain High Enough lyrics in the end!
Listen to the jam redux (above) then vote on your favorite version of the song (below)!
