“Another day, another outfit change for late diva Aretha Franklin.
The Queen of Soul rocked a fresh outfit for the second day of her public viewing in Detroit on Wednesday – this time opting for a pastel blue frock and matching blue stilettos.
The I Say a Little Prayer songstress still had on her red lipstick and red nails – which went with the red dress she donned Tuesday.
Thousands of more fans lined up outside the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History, where Franklin`s 24-karat-gold-plated casket was wheeled into early in the morning.”
Aretha Franklin, the Queen of Soul, like any diva worth her salt rocked some snazzy outfits in her day, but she became a legend because of her powerful pipes and her commitment to civil rights.
Aretha wasn`t a Lady Gaga or a Miley Cyrus who relied on outrageous outfits as a marketing ploy, and it`s a shame that the clowns who organized her Detroit memorial are changing her outfit every day for her public viewing.
The Queen of Soul was the epitome of class, and these hucksters are turning her memorial into a sideshow.
How about a little respect for the music icon? How about simply dressing Aretha in a Gospel choir robe as a homage to her Gospel roots?
