Celeb Tweets: Aretha Franklin Tribute Edition

The world has lost the Queen of Soul, but we are all better people for having been given the gift of her supreme talent for so many years. Her final performance at the @ejaf fundraiser was powerful. We love you, Aretha. #queenofsoul #arethafranklin #respect #restinpower

Goodbye sweet queen. Rest In Peace We lost the greatest. Ever. This picture is A night I’ll never forget. The queen summoned her court jester to do his Judy Garland impression for her at her 74th bday party. The clown obeyed.

She was an artist like no other, she wrote, she played, and she sang and filled us with the spirit. We both received honorary doctorates from #Berkleecollege she made sure I knew that her sister Erma Franklin was the first one to sing Piece Of My Heart. I was blessed to have met her. #ArethaFranklin #arethafranklin #aretha #queenofsoul

That voice. That soul. That spirit. I was always a fan – aren’t we all? Then, out of the blue, The Queen summoned me to tea last year at the Ritz. She wanted to talk Housewives. I was at her service. She talked about the ladies like they were characters on a Soap Opera and I interspersed questions about her life and career. We swapped numbers and texted about what was happening with the girls in Atlanta. She put me in her phone as “Mr Cohen/Housewives”. It tickled me to no end. LONG LIVE THE QUEEN.
