Aretha Franklin Not Happy With Beyonce Calling Tina Turner ‘The Queen’

The Associated Press reports , who owns the title of the Queen of Soul, is slamming over the former Destiny’s Child star’s intro to Tina Turner at Sunday’s Grammy Awards, where she called Turner, not Franklin, “the queen.” Franklin said in a statement, “I am not sure of whose toes I may have stepped on or whose ego I may have bruised between the Grammy writers and Beyonce. However, I dismissed it as a cheap shot for controversy.”

Beyonce had said in introducing Turner: “There is one legend who has the essence of all of those things: the glamour, the soul, the passion, the strength, the talent. Ladies and gentlemen. Stand on your feet and give it up for the queen.”
