When Barbra Showed Aretha No RESPECT

Only one diva could turn up her nose at the Queen of Soul!

Barbra Streisand mourned Aretha Franklin as a “uniquely brilliant singer” after the diva’s death, and posted a photo of herself backstage at a Marvin Hamlisch tribute concert in 2012. But what Barbra didn’t mention was reports of the legendary snub that happened that evening between the late Queen of Soul and Brooklyn’s own Babs! Aretha had earned her own reputation as a sharp-tongued diva over the decades, but insiders said that Barbra actually managed to leave the R&B legend speechless after Aretha dared to suggest the stage legends team up for a tour. Not only did Barbra bristle at the idea, said a source, the “Yentl” star even turned up her nose and proclaimed that she doesn’t need to tour with anyone!
