Aretha Franklin not dead, despite Internet reports
Don't believe everything you read on the Internets.
Despite pervasive tweets and random reports, Aretha Franklin is alive and as well as can be expected just a few weeks after surgery and an admission that she is battling pancreatic cancer.
Franklin is "home, alive and recovering," a source close to the singer told the Detroit Free Press.
Perhaps tweeters had Franklin confused with Teena Marie, the Ivory Queen of Soul, who passed away on Sunday at 54.
