Look at what PETA had to say about the Queen of fried chicken, I mean...Queen of Soul:
Music lovers may think of you as a “queen,” but to animal lovers, you are a court jester. I’m sorry, Aretha, but your furs make you look like a clown. If you were even a fraction as sensitive to the cruelty you promote through your wardrobe as you are to a blow to your ego, you would know that what I am saying rings true. Why not shed the old-fashioned look that adds pounds to your frame and detracts from your beautiful voice? Won’t you donate your furs to the poor as “queen of compassion,” Mariah Carey, did? You’ll get a tax credit for the donation, and we at PETA will all sing your praises
That was pretty damn harsh!!! LOL.
