Everyone's giving out about Madonna's 'disrespectful' Aretha Franklin tribute

Choir! Choir! Choir! sets Aretha Franklin tribute for Thursday

The VMAs scrambled last minute to honour Franklin, and the show's executive producer Jesse Ignatovic told industry publication Variety that they sought to do something "organic" and nothing "too kooky".

Someone in the comments section believes that 'they need to stop giving a white artist the tributes for a black artist because they totally mess it up every single time they never get it right why the hell was she doing the tribute for Aretha Franklin? "She said while on an audition for a backup singing gig with a French disco producer she was asked to sing and chose "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman", one of Franklin's signature tunes.

Madge illuminated the fact that Franklin served as an inspiration to so many burgeoning singers.

However, some viewers at home who were expecting Madonna to speak at length about Aretha were left stunned by her "self-indulgent" speech and quickly flocked to twitter to call out the singer.

Madonna: Great, so this is how I got my career started...

Madonna and MTV have yet to address what the hell they were thinking, but we imagine that an apology statement will be released soon.

"None of this would have happened, could have happened, without our lady of soul". And I know she influenced so many people in this house tonight. I had no training or dreams of ever becoming a singer, but I went for it. "I know the song by heart, I will sing it a cappella, '" she said.

You can check out one of the better parts of the tribute in the tweet below. He replied, "We think you have great potential". Fortunately, one of my favorite albums was Lady Soul by Aretha Franklin. I blurted out, 'You make me feel!' Silence. We want to bring you to Paris and make you a star.

Eventually, Madonna tried to connect the dots of her story and Franklin's unparalleled legacy.

"It wasn't until I had two little angels come into my life, that everything changed.my whole life became clearer in every way", she said of her children.

"So, that was the beginning of my journey as a singer". In this room tonight.

Madonna later announced Camilla Cabello as the victor of Video of the Year award.

One person used a GIF of Franklin to call the tribute "lies, lies and more lies".

"I love you ty for fantastic us with your handsome and powerful speech you're wonderful", another fan added. She stood up in front of millions while wearing traditional Moroccan/Amazigh attire, perpetuating the controversy and inviting accusations of cultural appropriation, as The Hollywood Reporter points out.
