Apparently there are so many fans wanting to buy the same hat Aretha Franklin wore to President Obama's inauguration that the Queen of Soul wants a cut of sales.
According to Detroit radio station WWJ, there has been a "flood of orders from around the world" to order the same $179 big-bowed, rhinestone-studded hat created by Detroit milliner Luke Song at his Mr. Song Millinery. "I think that I should be getting big time royalties from him. That's what I think," Franklin said in an interview with WWJ.
But wait! There's more!
Franklin is really blowing her...lid...off over still being billed for any hats Song makes for her. "I was disappointed when I said, 'am I getting all my hats free now?'" she told the radio station. "He said, 'well...uh....' I said, 'oh no you won't!'"
Am I the only one who thinks it ironic that Aretha Franklin's hatmaker is named Song?
