            That beef goes back to the 60's When Dionne had back to back million sellers and Aretha couldnt figure out why she wasnt on top of the charts but then she moved to Atlantic and things turned around for her

              RIP Ree Ree. But damn.. Love & Hip Hop got how many shows? And we cant get more of this but in 1 minute snippets? Imagine Dionne, Diana, & Gladys in a reality show. And Shirley Bassey? The shade would be legendary. In a perfect world Sir David Attenborough would narrate

                ...and there you have it folks! I always knew, Aretha believed in her own mind, that she was beyond reproach. And in hindsight, she made way too much of Dionne mentioning her name at Whitney's funeral. I saw that part of the funeral . Dionne thought she was there...and Aretha wasnt. So, whats the problem?. And I believe Gladys when she said, the blowback aint really mean shit to Dionne.

                  Dionne nor her aunt Cissy came to Aretha's funeral. Women are so messy with each other. They've known each other for so long and they allow this stupid shit to divide them.

                              I love them all. Gladys was just being honest lol. I can tell in the interviews Aretha was sensitive... Don't get it twisted though. She IS the Queen!

                                          Gladys wrote some very uncomplimentary things about Aretha in her biography. She claimed that Aretha was repeatedly cool and aloof toward her. Gave examples. She Wrote that she always wanted to be closer to Aretha. Aretha responds by posting a picture of herself with Gladys cheek to cheek at some award show. With the caption, "How close do you want to be? Gladys offers shade every chance she gets about Aretha.

                                            Pop Land exactly! Like no doubt aretha is one of the greatest singers of all time but everyone needs to stop getting so defensive when people give there opinions on her as a person. Aretha clearly she was a bit of a diva, multiple other women from her era have said it.

                                            That twitter thread was _something_ I was laughing while reading it. She had beefs with everybody from Al Green to Luther, Roberta Flack, Whitney, her sisters Carolyn and Erma, Mavis Staples, Gladys, and Patti LaBelle just to name a few.

                                            miss birdsong . I am an old Motown & Soul music fan from Liverpool U.K. & been listening to Glady’s since the sixties .For me when it comes to belting out & delivering soul music ,Glady’s could sing them all off the stage all night long .That includes the great late Aretha Franklin as well .Dont all you Aretha fans all queue up at once to beat me up now .lol .

                                            Maybe because Aretha Franklin was shy and quiet she seemed that way, but wasn't really cold and distant.

                                            See and these folks wanna say they her friend and love Aretha....she heroed Dionne her friend..and threw Aretha under the bus saying she's sensitive.....u would ve to Gladys if mess was brewing that could jeopardize ur relationship to Cissy. But a video is up with her being Ree's friend....this was pure shade.

                                                I may be wrong but my gut feeling is on Aretha Franklin's side. I don't care how long it has been when it comes to letting people know who you are. Rip Queen of Soul

                                                    Why is she putting Aretha on blast, whike elevating her homegirl Dionne? Is it because Aretha Franklin dissed Gladys Knight twice, back in the day and she hasn't gotten over it??? Dionne isnt all that right, it takes TWO wrongs, admitting
                                                    they're wrong to make a right!!! How right was Dionne when she was involved in that witchcraft pschic hotline mess years ago?! I wouldn't believe anything she said!!!

But Aretha’s career in the long run was better because at least Aretha was still able to book shows... Whitney voice was finish because all them damn drugs she was on. I still can’t believe he mentioned Whitney in a Aretha argument.

I wonder did the idiot ever Google the greatest female singer of All time so can see that the rest of them chicks named are irrelevant when it comes to singing. And keep mentioning Whitney, every hit she ever had was someone else song dat she covered. His ass don't know shit

Lol they about to rob her ass in death. The Franklin family is pathetic and I suspect Aretha already knew they were no good which is why she kept them away and out of the spotlight. Go defend Aretha's honor over there and get her money back! #fakefans

                                                          This is old. But they’re human and we didn’t know they dynamics behind their relationship. Aretha is with God now. Nothing else matters
