"I'm so lost. I thought Madonna was supposed to be paying homage to Aretha but I all heard was her paying homage to herself". Thank GOD Aretha Franklin existed, because if she didn't, we wouldn't have Madonna!

Fans of Aretha Franklin weren't impressed by Madonna's tribute to the Queen of Soul at Monday night's 2018 MTV Video Music Awards. She even offered auxiliary details about "getting robbed, held at gunpoint, and being mistaken for a prostitute in my third-floor walk-up that was a crack house", which probably didn't need to be included in a tribute about someone else.

Then the criticism came as it seemed to many like her tribute was more like an anecdote about her own career. "Long live the queen".

South Africa hits back at Trump over land seizure tweet
Whites still own most of South Africa's land, more than two decades after the end of apartheid. The South African parliament passed a motion to take back the land.

Gospel singers Marvin Sapp and Vanessa Bell Armstrong will also perform, as well as the Aretha Franklin Choir and the Aretha Franklin Celebration Choir.

"I could see that they did not take me seriously".

It's not known for sure why Franklin died "intestate" (without a will), but it is known that she's leaving a hefty amount of assets behind - her net worth is estimated to be roughly $80 million, according to People, citing celebritynetworth.com.

Weinstein's accuser Asia Argento 'sexually assaulted' 17-yr-old
A month earlier, Argento had made public her allegations of sexual assault against defamed media mogul Harvey Weinstein . Then she kissed him, pushed him back on the bed, removed his trousers and performed oral sex.

Now, why did Madonna take almost 10 minutes to tell a story about herself? I blurted out, "You make me feel".

In an upcoming column, I'll provide some advice on writing a will, but for now I need you to understand why this is one financial move you should make a priority.

"In the morning, my telephone rang and the man said, 'Hi, Cher, it's George Miller.' I said, 'Hey, George.' He was the director of Witches of Eastwick", the 72-year-old explained, according to The Hollywood Reporter. "She led me where I am today..." She was known as the "Queen of Soul" and widely considered one of the best singers, if not the best, of her generation. They said, 'We will call you one day, maybe soon.' Weeks went by. He said she did maintain ownership of her original compositions, which include well-known hits such as "Think" and "Rock Steady". "And just to clarify: I was asked to present video of the year by MTV!".

Google employees speak up against 'censored search engine for China'
As was evidenced when Google employees protested the company's involvement with Project Maven , a project which helped the U.S. Government use A.I.to improve the accuracy of drone strikes, Google's workforce can be steadfast in their demonstrations.
