The Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, has cancelled two upcoming free concerts in New York City after the singer fractured her ribs and complained of abdominal pain after suffering a fall.
Lady Soul’s spokeswoman, Gwendolyn Quinn issued a statement explaining the reasons for the cancellation:
“Due to fractured ribs and pain in the abdomen, it was necessary for Ms. Franklin to cancel and reschedule the two concerts,” said the statement from spokeswoman Gwendolyn Quinn. Franklin’s doctors have advised her to come in for tests immediately, the statement said.
“I was very much looking forward to being in Brooklyn and having a foot-long hot dog at Coney Island,” Franklin said in the statement. “Hopefully I will get it before the end of August.”
Franklin, 68, also noted, “I will really miss that nice slice of cake from Congressman Charlie Rangel’s birthday party and singing ‘Happy Birthday’ to him.”
Aretha Franklin is dangerously obese. She should not be promoting Snickers bars and her first thoughts when falling should not be cake and hot dogs. OurHealth is frustrated. When are we going to learn and get real about OUR HEALTH?
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children. - Hosea 4:6
