Old Diva Beef:
We All know that “Queen of Soul” Aretha Franklin was very displeased after Beyonce called Tina Turner “The Queen” in a tribute on the Grammy Awards. Well now, Aretha is fuming over remarks made by Tina her “arch nemesis”.
Tina, who is currently on tour commented in a very recent interveiw:
”She’s the queen of soul, and I’m the queen of rock ‘n’ roll. There were so many kings and queens there that night. Her ego must be so big to think she was the only one.”
[laughing] “That’s how queens are!”
Well “Queen Franklin” did not find it funny.
“clearly was talking about herself” [in terms of ego].
“I never figured her to resort to tacky press just to sell a few tickets,” says Franklin, who adds she has never met Turner. “I really had put her in a different class — higher than that. No one has been more gracious … to their peers than I have, and I am confident and secure enough to do so, unlike some others.”
Tina reportedly isn’t talking about it anymore…
