Aretha Franklin left no will

Aretha Franklin left no will

Madonna paid tribute to Aretha Franklin at the 2018 MTV VMAs on August 20, but many fans were left confused after the "Like A Virgin" singer mainly talked about herself. Thank GOD Aretha Franklin existed, because if she didn't, we wouldn't have Madonna!

Just days after the iconic Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, passed away there was no word as to if there would be an official tribute at the MTV Video Music Awards.

The fact that the legendary woman popular for her hit songs like "Respect" and "You make me feel like a Natural Woman" has a special needs son named Clarence who will always need a lot of financial assistance and more makes the lack of will more striking.

It was a pathetic display at Brighton and the travelling Man United supporters were understandably not very happy. I put myself first, that my attitude wasn´t right enough.

Madonna continued to talk about her early-career struggles, like getting robbed, and being "mistaken for a prostitute in her third floor walk-up, that was also a crack house". I did not intend to do a tribute to her! "R-E-S-P-E-C-T. Long live the queen". Also on the roster are The Aretha Franklin Orchestra, the Aretha Franklin Celebration Choir and singers Audrey DuBois Harris and Alice McAllister Tillman.

"I could see that they did not take me seriously".

Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin died without leaving a will, according to reports.

Madonna, however, apparently saw this as an opportunity to try to one-up the video salute, taking to the stage to pay tribute to the singer by revealing how Franklin impacted her personal career.

Madonna was chosen to head up the tribute, though some fans felt as though the 60-year-old "Material Girl" singer made it all about herself. I would now like to present the nominees for the video of the year. I said, 'B****, I'm Madonna.' No, I didn't. This means that her estate worth about $80 million dollar has no incumbent owner.

Over the years they've performed a number of tributes to iconic musicians shortly after their deaths, including one for David Bowie at the Art Gallery of Ontario and Gord Downie at Nathan Phillips Square. It was one of the producers: 'We don't think you are right for this job.' 'Why are you calling me?' He replied, 'We think you have great potential. "All the love that my fans, that my friends, that everybody shows me is genuine and that's something that God give me that you can't buy, bi**h".
