The Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, had to cancel her free Coney Island concerts next week because of “fractured ribs and a pain in the abdomen.”
Our hearts are with her, but it’s obvious that the woman hasn’t become that unglued by this cancellation, seeing as she’s still thinking about the food ops that are being lost as a result of it.
As Aretha said in a press release, “I was very much looking forward to being in Brooklyn and having a foot-long hot dog at Coney Island.
“Hopefully, I will get it before the end of August.”
She also hungrily stated, “I will really miss that nice slice of cake from Congressman Charlie Rangel‘s birthday party and singing ‘Happy Birthday’ to him.”
No regrets there. It’ll probably have a scalpel in it to get him out of prison.
