Is that a squirrel attacking your head Aretha? I know it was cold outside but maybe a more appropriate dress for 20 degree weather would have been a better choice!
Oh and thank you for embarrassing the thickettes AGAIN! Everyone else looks normal in the picture but of course you come out looking like a ghetto Eskimo!
I’m done venting….thickettes speak on it.
Oh and does she believe in wearing bras!?
Ok seriously I’m done this time…
Fellow thickette/blogger Afrobella wrote a letter to Aretha. Check it out here

The Queen of Soul’s Hollywood star was vandalized this week. The words “fur-hag” were tagged by a anti-fur protester. Rumor has it the anti-fur organization PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) is behind the bullsh*t.
Now don’t get me wrong,Â I am allÂ for people standing up for what they believe in but sometimes they take things too far! Defacing property with the words fur-hag is childish and solves nothing.Â
Hell they should know by now Aretha is a DIVA she will still rock her furs after this BS and she will probably start rocking them everyday just to piss them off!
It’s funny but I always seeÂ these anti-fur orgsÂ pick on people who they know won’t fight back. I dare them to come at Lil Kim, Diddy or Cam’ron! Ha!
And just in case somebody from PETA or another anti-fur orgÂ comes to my site and emails me about some BS. I DON’T WEAR FUR. I live in Cali so I clearly don’t need one but I still think you take things to damn far.

I think all of our Thickettes represented us in a thicksational way.
I know some are talking about Aretha’s hat but I don’t understand. She’s in her 60′s and it’s like a church hat. I thought it was cute on her.
The Queen was at the Neighborhood Inaugural Ball
Looking good Queen but um……………..
Why are you wearing the same dress you wore on Saturday at the BET Honors!
I’m going to give her a pass this time!
Maybe her luggage got lost………..I hope!
Raven was in DC as well.
Couldn’t see her dress but her make-up was nice.
On a non thickette moment.
Miss Alicia Keys
Looked beautiful and performed her a** off last night. I need that dress in a size 16!

Aretha Franklin has been selected to participate in Barack Obamaâ€™s inaugural swearing-in ceremony on Jan. 20th.
Bravo Pres. Obama that was a very thicksational pick!
We know Aretha will make us proud with her amazing voice.
Let’s hope the clothes she rocks will be thicksational as well!

Aretha Franklin performed at the 85th Annual NYSE Tree Lighting.
I have to admit she is looking better these days.
She also attended the closing bell at the NYSE. This might be a THICKSATIONAL first!

ARETHA HAS RESPONED TO TINA TURNER REMARKS ABOUT HER EGO BEING TOO BIG.
HERE’S THE SCOOP:
Turner, currently on tour, was silent when Franklin dubbed BeyoncÃ©’s remark “a cheap shot for controversy.” Asked to comment in a USA TODAY interview last week, Turner said, “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.” She joked, “That’s how queens are!” (Source)
WELL HERE’S WHAT ARETHA HAS TO SAY:
“I have always appreciated what Tina Turner has to offer and had quietly cheered her on after Ike and her subsequent success. However, with respect to her statement concerning my ego (in saying, ‘Her ego must be so big to think she was the only one â€¦ that’s how queens are’) clearly she was talking about herself as she described herself as the ‘Queen of Rock’ and saying ‘that’s what Queens do’ â€” particularly since she does not have a clue as to who I am in view of the fact that we have never met.
“I never figured her to resort to tacky press just to sell a few tickets. I understand and I know that the concert market is down where ticket sales are concerned. I really had put her in a different class â€” higher than that.
“Finally, no one has been more gracious or complimentary to their peers than I have and I am confident and secure enough to do so, unlike some others. I wish Ms. Turner all the best, as I always have. Perhaps one day we will meet.” (Source)
WHO KNEW THAT TWO WOMEN WHO ARE OLD ENOUGH TO BE MY GRANDMOTHER WOULD BEEF OVER SOMETHING SO STUPID.
