While on tour to promote her latest album, Falling Out Of Love, Aretha Franklin made an unscheduled pit stop at Community North Hospital in Indianapolis to x-ray her toe injured in an accident on Friday.
The Queen of Soul tripped over her Jimmy Choo spiked heels in her hotel suite and felt a sharp pain in her left index toe.
She says it "hurt like heck for a minute, but seemed to subside." However, x-rays a few days later revealed a fracture in the toe!
We're so sorry to hear that, but it sounds like things could have been worse for the music legend who said, "I'm so grateful it wasn't my right piano [pedal] foot."
She still has other problems on her mind though. As she was gearing up for a performance in Virginia on Tuesday night, she joked:
"How am I supposed to match my new Marc Jacobs gown with this wooden blue hospital shoe?"
We're glad that's ALL she's worrying about, especially after her mysterious health scare last year, which required serious surgery!
Good luck at the show, Aretha! We're sure you'll find some way to stylishly rock that wooden blue hospital shoe!
