When it comes to that little soundbyte Aretha Franklin gave regarding Beyonce introducing Tina Turner as "The Queen" at the Grammys, I largely stayed out of it. Mainly because Aretha Franklin looks like she likes to throw shoes and I'm not going out like that. But Matthew Knowles doesn't disappoint, delivering this missive just in time for a late-morning posting!
"As a manager I am not taking something this ridiculous to Beyonce. Beyonce referred to Tina Turner as a 'queen'. Not queen of gospel, queen of soul, queen of blues, Queen of England. I consider my wife a queen and sometimes call her that. Does Aretha have a problem with that?"
YES. Yes, Aretha has a problem with that! Haven't you been paying attention, Matthew?
