Aretha Franklin Wants Beyonce Knowles to Know Who the 'Queen' Is


Aretha Franklin Wants Beyonce Knowles to Know Who the 'Queen' Is


Aretha Franklin slams Beyonce Knowles for introducing Tina Turner as "the queen" while she thinks the title belongs to her.

Aretha Franklin was intimidated when Beyonce Knowles handed over her "Queen" title to Tina Turner. Knowles made an introduction to Turner who was making a stage comeback at the 50th Annual Grammy Awards by addressing her as "the queen", and Franklin who has long been known as the Queen of Soul is unhappy about that.

In a released statement through her publicist, Franklin stated "I am not sure of whose toes I may have stepped on or whose ego I may have bruised between the Grammy writers and Beyonce. However, I dismissed it as a cheap shot for controversy."

Knowles opened Turner's solo performance by saying "There is one legend who has the essence of all of those things: the glamour, the soul, the passion, the strength, the talent. Ladies and gentlemen. Stand on your feet and give it up for the queen." That night she also joined Turner for a duet.

Despite her slam for the mistaken word, Franklin closed her statement by praising the event. "In addition to that, I thank the Grammys and the voting academy for my 20th Grammy and love to Beyonce anyway," she said.

No representative from Knowles or Recording Academy who owns the Grammy have been available for comment.
