Does Aretha Franklin have cancer?

Though I'm loath to quote the trash that is the Daily Mail below is an article by them claiming that Aretha Franklin's recent unspecified surgery was in fact to  treat aggressive pancreatic cancer. 

Here's to hoping that this story is one that the Mail has fabricated, or at least exaggerated (something they are famous for)  but whatever the case may be we wish Ms Franklin a speedy recovery and good health.

  1. It's getting to be where you can hardly believe anything that you read anymore, but most people believe anything that they hear or read. For instance, this article called Aretha a Motown singer. Aretha has never been with Motown; EVER. So that says it all. Why would I believe anything else that they print.

  2. Howdy! This blog post couldn't be written much better!

    Looking at this article reminds me of my previous roommate!
    He always kept preaching about this. I'll send this information to him.
    Pretty sure he's going to have a good read. Thanks for sharing!
