Aretha Franklin sang at the annual Rockefeller Center tree-lighting ceremony last night. I’m sure I wasn’t the only one who got chills from her appearance—but not because of her singing … oh, no. My skin crawled because the Queen of
Soul Cold wore this:
You may recall that Franklin was voted PETA’s Fugliest Fur Hag in 2008. The hideousness she wore last night suggests that the face of fur wants to lock in first place for the upcoming 2009 vote. Can one of her “people” please explain to her—very slowly so she’s sure to comprehend—that she does not want to be voted the world’s most heinous person again? Pretty please?
