The Queen, Aretha Franklin called the TJMS this morning to talk about her doctorate degree from Princeton University, so we can now call her Dr. Franklin. (or Dr. Queen). She’s on tour and traveling throughout the country and she’ll even appear at the Essence Music Festival on July 5th-8th. Click on the audio to find out where she’ll appear next and even find out who impresses her the most in terms of this new generation of pop and r&b acts. Her answer may shock you because it shocked us. She even gives her feelings on Broadway music and plays. Excellent interview with Aretha Franklin on the TJMS.
