    Well it wasn't like she can control what people say. Besides the fact she didn't sue the author of that book about C.L. Franklin and exposing his dark secrets speaks volumes. Doubt she'd care anymore...

    "I Will Survive" is as much her hit as it is Gloria's. Plus she did release it as a single and a very iconic video with RuPaul in it. She made it her own for almost 20 years, why not? Lol

    ^^ Actually if you google C.L. Franklin, supremester, a lot of dirt has been exposed on him.

    Interesting lol

    I only said Fred, Jr. because he's standing far away from Rita lol but you could be right since both Fred, Jr. and T-Boy were lighter skinned than this.

    I feel that Aretha is at the stage in her life that she's kinda over it. At 72 years old, I think you begin developing this "forget this, let them know, I'm gonna die anyway" attitude. In recent...

    I think if your mother leaves the family when you're barely 6, dies before you turn 10, you have a child at 12, you have a promiscuous father who also impregnated a preteen, your husband is an...

    Yeah. Whoever made the most cash for the label were usually the ones promoted, which is why the Supremes towered over everyone else and why Marvin, Stevie, the Temptations, Miracles and Four Tops...

    First I heard of Marvin being delivered tapes of Brenda for him to study phrasing. Judging from what Motown associates have said about Marvin, he had the phrasing down pat but Diana was a diamond in...

    Yeah from the articles I gather, she never really had negative thoughts about Diana. Just that she was "competition". Same thing with Barbra. But it seems it was more personal with the others (Mavis,...

  22. David Ritz reveals Aretha Franklin looked at Gladys and Diana as "rivals" in bio

    I just go ahead and just get this out of the way: Aretha felt Diana and Gladys were her competition for her "Queen of Soul" throne, according to David Ritz, which just confirms what they have said...
