The Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin stopped by the Wall Street Journal last week to discuss her latest album.
While celebrating the disc’s success, the 72-year-old couldn’t help but sound off on a few younger divas in the industry.
When Nicki Minaj’s name was brought up, Franklin didn’t have many nice things to say. She simply replied,
“Hmmm. I’m going to pass on that one.”
But what was much more surprising was her lack of compliments for Taylor Swift
When asked to say a few words about the singer, Franklin replied,
“Great gowns, beautiful gowns.”
Gowns?! Just gowns?! We know, Swifties; She could have said so much more.
When asked about her opinion on Taylor’s impressive 1989 album sales that topped 1.2 million, she replied;
Maybe she could have mentioned her ability to tackle both country and pop music perfectly? We could go on and on.
It also didn’t help that the “RESPECT” singer had much nicer things to say about the two women before Swift.
When asked about Adele and Alicia Keys, Franklin shared “good singer, Young performer, good writer, producer.”
Regardless of one person’s opinion, chances are Swift won’t be too upset with the news. In fact, she’s probably just going to “Shake it Off.”
