Legendary singer Aretha Franklin slammed by Beyonce's father

Beyonce Knowles's father has slammed legendary singer Aretha Franklin for her public comments criticising Beyonce's Grammy Awards performance.

Franklin was upset with Beyonce for calling her duet partner Tina Turner 'the queen', reports contactmusic.com. Franklin usually called the queen of soul music said that“I am not sure of whose toes I may have stepped on or whose ego I may have bruised between the Grammy writers and Beyonce, however I dismissed it as a cheap shot for controversy,” Franklin said.

Beyonce's father Matthew said: 'Beyonce referred to Tina as a queen, not queen of gospel, queen of soul, queen of blues, queen of England. I consider my wife a queen and sometimes call her that. Does Aretha have a problem with that?'

Living in a house with my wife (the Queen) and two princesses, I have to agree with Beyonce's father. All great women are queens in their own way -- royalty bequeathed by skill or passion, not just blood.
