So I’m not really getting the big deal everyone is making about Aretha Franklin’s hat. Personally, I think the hat suits her and come on…she’s ARETHA FRANKLIN – she can do whatever she wants.
Also, the comment that Kristi Gustafson from the Times Union made “Tone it down, honey, this is not your day” is completely off base. Really? How does a singer wearing a hat take away from Barack Obama’s big day? Grow up, Kristi. Don’t you think it’s time we stop focusing on such inconsequential things and start focusing on all of the amazing change that Obama will bring to this country?
