NEWS REPORT:Arthea Franklin wants Kathie Lee to show some “RESPECT”
According to thegrio.com the Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin has made it known that she wants to be considered a judge on American Idol. With that being said the media went crazy .The current judges Randy Jackson, Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler are in the midst of a shakeup. Randy maybe replaced by Mariah Carey,and even Jennifer and Tyler are on their way out.
Kathie Lee Gifford of NBC’s Today Kathie Lee & Hoda stated a few days ago…
“If they are looking for a younger demographic, there are a lot of kids out there (who) actually don’t know who Aretha Franklin is. It’s sad, but they don’t,” Gifford said.
Well Ms.Franklin got wind of it and made this statement,
“While I enjoy Kathie Lee and Hoda daily, her assessment is totally wrong! I’ve been to California from Detroit four times this year and Florida. I go wherever I choose to go comfortably on my custom bus.
Further, my audience and fans span the age of 8 to 90! And are multi-ethnic, and I am very well known to young adults, tweens and teens. Their parents play my music and I take care of my business whenever I sign on the dotted line! I’m surprised Kathie Lee did not research my worldwide celebrity audience! She’s usually right on top of things with a great sense of humor, but she’s totally wrong this time. She should research me before she speaks about me. I’m sure she thought she was right; still enjoy Hoda and Kathie Lee! I could enjoy being a judge for a season or two. Let’s kick it up a few notches and have a slammin’, jammin’ season."
I think she would be great at it ….but hey I don’t even know most of her work but I am not afraid to learn .NO ONE should be.
Here is some of her works …
