Really, son? I mean, really, fam? Like, THAT was the best that MTV could do?! Aretha Franklin, The Queen of Soul, dies and THIS is the best tribute they could give her?! Man, I knew there was a reason my heart told me not to watch the Video Music Awards. All I can say is, after seeing Madonna‘s “homage” to Franklin, I want to beat up every staff member at MTV. Frankly, SOMEBODY needs to catch these hands for that travesty, bruh!
Ok, for those who missed it, the VMAs happened last night. Side note, why the fuck did they have an awards show on a Monday? Shit, after a hard day at work, I’m not trying to come home and watch a long-as-fuck show, son. Needless to say, the timing of this is MAJOR fuckery on MTV’s part. Anyway, since Franklin just passed, the network decided to give her a tribute. Now, out of all of the artists they could’ve possibly gotten for this event, who did MTV call? Madonna. Man, what? What?! Whoooo the fuck asked for that, fam? For starters, I can guarantee that NO ONE in the Black community did.
Now, as expected, Madonna’s tribute was simply tragic. First, she somehow made Franklin’s memorial about herself. Hell, instead of talking about the Queen, Madonna told a story about her early days as a struggling musician. Bruh, no one wanted a retrospective on Madonna’s career. Keeping it a buck, I don’t give a flying fuckity-fuck about her come up, son. This is about Aretha Franklin, brethren! Then, to make matters worse, Madonna decided to yodel “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman.” Listen, I don’t know what key signature Madonna thought she was singing in, but I definitely know it wasn’t the one from Franklin’s song, man.
In the end, EVERYONE should get slapped up for this tomfoolery, fam. Ultimately, the Queen deserved/deserves WAY better than this, bruh! By and by, I’m going to pretend like last night didn’t exist, son. At the end of the day, it’s better for our collective sanity, man. That is all. LC out.
