Aretha Franklin Returns To The Stage And Starts A New Diet

After months of scary reports coming out and uncertainty in the music legend’s health, Aretha Franklin is back “150%” and ready to recharge her life.

Aretha is already working on a new album, but most importantly, she’s focusing on getting her health back on track.

"I want to not only maintain the weight I am at now, but better it, by one dress size," said Aretha.

Franklin has cut out some home-cooking favorites from her diet, such as chitterlings, pigs' feet and ham hocks.

Said Aretha:

"They're off my diet. They just really don't fit with Whole Foods. I had it for enough years that I don't miss it. You can't continue to eat things that are not good for you."

Franklin admits that it’s tough to stick to her healthy lifestyle but that she’s making it work:

"When you come off (a high-energy concert), a carrot or some celery just isn't going to work. I've gotta do a fresh fruit thing … and come up with some tasty and satisfying recipes that are going to work for me after concerts."

The world is better now that she’s back on track!

Aretha Franklin: ‘I Never Had Cancer’

When a life is in danger and the exact reason why is unknown, rumors can start flying.

That’s exactly what happened with Aretha Frankin, who was reported to have pancreatic cancer by “a family insider.” It turns out that “family insider” was wrong.

Said Aretha on the rumors:

"Well, there was just so many wild things out there and just so many things being said that weren't true. I just felt I needed to address it a little."

After a few procedures, doctors were able to figure out what was wrong with her, but she wants to keep it under wraps, so we may never know.

The most important thing is that Aretha is alright. Our Queen of Soul will live to sing another day!!
