I swear I could not have made this up even if I tried: below is a video clip of Aretha Franklin in concert singing a cover of Mariah Carey's "Touch My Body." Yes, you read that correctly. But before you run to press play below, let's examine briefly why this is all kinds of wrong.
- Aretha possesses one of the best voices any of us or two generations behind us have ever heard. For her to sing this song when, let's face it, Mariah looked foolish for trying to sing a song that is so full of juvenile sexy innuendos, is absolutely ridiculous.
- 'Retha does sound good, but something tells me this is payback for Mariah trying to oversing and overtackify the VH1 Divas special they appeared on together.
- Re-Re has covered Mariah before, and should have stuck to classy Mariah and not slutty, cougar Mariah which is getting more and more loathsome with every passing album.
