Madonna Clarifies Strange VMAs Tribute

Madonna on the red carpet at the MTV VMAs.

Yet, in true Madonna fashion, she is in fact getting the last word.

Wilson said he would have helped Franklin manage her holdings in music publishing and copyright issues for estate planning. She had to sing at the audition and she sang Aretha Franklin's "You Make Me Feel". I know the song.

The Madonna Twitter roasting included this from one angry Franklin fan: "Only Madonna would tell her life story while honoring a dead Black Woman lmaooo".

"I would expect that she has a house, probably a financial account of some kind - a brokerage account, stocks, bond, cash", said Kenneth Silver, shareholder at Hertz Schram law firm in MI, in an interview with People. That would be impossible in 2 minutes with all the noise and tinsel of an award show. "And I know she influenced so many people in this house night".

The world was left in in mourning last week following news that the 76-year-old "Queen of Soul" died of pancreatic cancer but as the initial shock settles, attentions now turn to her wealth.




"Aretha Louise Franklin changed the course of my life", she started off saying.

Dressed in a flowing black dress with beaded African jewelry around her neck and head, Madonna's farewell to the Queen of Soul came before she presented the Video of the Year award to singer Camila Cabello.

She called her white son "Dis N*gga" and then SHE got offended. Wouldn't it have been better to talk about how much Franklin's music meant to her?

In addition to her sons' filing, Franklin's niece has asked the court to appoint her as a personal representative of the estate, the Detroit Free Press reported. 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.

But fans have complained the speech was more about herself, rather than Franklin. Perhaps that blame lay exclusively at the feet of MTV.

Kentuckian Chris Stapleton may not be the obvious artist to pay tribute to the late Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin.
