Chicago Notes
2008-08-05 15:22:00
Why do people, more specifically, women, dress up to go shopping? I would think that you would want to dress comfortably and wear clothes that are easy to take on and off in case you would like to try on new clothes at the stores. Is this a Pretty Woman thing (meaning that a "nice" store wouldn?t want your business if you?re not dressed well)? I saw a billboard for Chicago?s True Oldies radio station 94.7, which simply stated Monkees, Stones, Aretha. Now I like the Monkees (I?m sure that you are shocked by this statement based on my recent Neil Diamond posts), but they really don?t belong in the same class as The Rolling Stones or Aretha Franklin. The Oldies station may want to include The Beatles on its next billboards. I ate dinner at an Italian restaurant in my fancy Chicago hotel and noticed something odd. There was a living fly stuck inside the parmesan cheese container on my table. I pointed it out to my waiter who looked confused when I asked him to remove the cheese. ...

Unchallenged Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin doesn't play second fiddle to anyone ? and she's letting Beyoncé and the folks behind Sunday night's Grammy broadcast know it. When Beyoncé took the stage Sunday night to introduce music legend Tina Turner, she not only included Aretha's name in a list of famous female singers who apparently don't measure up to Tina's brilliance, but then she ended her intro by exhorting the crowd to "Give it up for the queen!" ****** Oops. Aretha, who would later perform as part of a presentation of great Gospel acts, released a statement Tuesday expressing her discontent. 'I am not sure of whose toes I may have stepped on or whose ego I may have bruised between the Grammy writers and Beyoncé,'' reads the statement. ''However, I dismissed it as a cheap shot for controversy.'' *******************************-*******************************-********************** HOUSE OF GLITZ: Aretha needs to let that go, It's not that serious..!!
