Last week was a sad day for music as we lost the great Aretha Franklin. With the MTV VMAs on the way you knew they had to act fast in order to plan a proper tribute to the Queen of Soul. They selected Madonna to honor her, and after the "tribute" it left many people scratching their heads wondering what they just watched.
What we all saw was Madonna talking an awful lot about herself and not that much about Aretha Franklin. It wasn't much of a tribute to the late singer and twitter let her know it as she was almost immediately trending on twitter.
does Madonna know Madonna didn’t die— Katie Nolan (@katienolan) August 21, 2018
Im sorry, I love Madonna...but her telling a 5 minute story about herself was not the right time to honor Aretha Franklin. Wow..... So shocked. #vmas— Isis King (@MsIsisKing) August 21, 2018
Aretha Franklin's Tribute at the #VMAs:— Nia Langley✨ (@theNiaLangley) August 21, 2018
1. Madonna talks about herself, at length, with Aretha as a footnote.
2. "Respect" is played at the very end.
3. A photo of Aretha with "1942-2018."
Bro, what? Disrespectful.
