The Queen of Soul died in August at the age of 76.

Aretha brought the world sensational hits like “Do Right Woman — Do Right Man,” “Think,” “Respect” and “Chain of Fools.” At the 2018 VMA awards, the soul singer was honored, though many were left scratching their heads at Madonna’s awkward speech. Madonna claimed, “Aretha Franklin changed my life” but then launched into a long, nonsensical monologue about herself. Many were furious and simply offended and thought the Queen of Soul and her incredible legacy deserved much more respect.
