    When Beyoncé and Tina Turner hit the Grammy stage for their high-octane duet on Sunday, most observers were left in awe. But the woman known as the "Queen of Soul" was left in a state of dismay over Beyoncé's introducing Turner as "the Queen."

    Clearly offended, Aretha Franklin says in a statement, "I am not sure of whose toes I may have stepped on or whose ego I may have bruised between the Grammy writers and Beyoncé, however I dismissed it as a cheap shot for controversy. In addition to that, I thank the Grammys and the voting academy for my 20th Grammy and love to Beyoncé anyway."

    This seems a bit petty, to me.

    One is the Queen of Rock 'n Roll. The other is the Queen of Soul. There is room for more than one queen. :) We love both of them in this household. My husband especially loves Aretha. She has our r-e-s-p-e-c-t!!

    Yeah, DRAMA Queen apparently. To be so upset over something so frivilous is sad.

    For sure. I think Beyonce was just trying to show respect to the elder singer.

    Aretha needs to get over herself. She's done this at least once before at an awards show. She needs to retire or be quiet. I've loved her music for years, but her attitude su*ks.

    Petty for sure. It's not like these "title's" are official anyway.:rolleyes: Aretha should just be glad that she has any relevance at all.
