Oh boy! Kandi Burruss, like the rest of the world, was not impressed by Madonna’s very odd tribute to the late Aretha Franklin.
The Queen of Pop hit the stage at the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards which took place in New York City where she told a very long story about how she sang “Natural Woman” at her first audition which led to the opportunity of a lifetime.
She concluded by: “There is a connection! Because none of this would have happened, could have happened without our Lady of Soul. She led me to where I am today. And I know she influenced so many people in this house tonight. I want to thank you, Aretha, for empowering all of us. R-E-S-P-E-C-T.”
Kandi asked why on earth did she make the story about her instead of focusing on Aretha who had an impressive career. Fans agreed with Kandi.
One person said: “Wait…. that speech was supposed to be about Aretha?? Omgg I was so confused she said her name like once and continued on her “back when I was a kid” speech… Whewwwwwww Chile da confusion.What in the entire Fck & don’t get me wrong I love me some Madonna but she straight from Morocco in African Arabic jewels on national tv talking about crack houses with Aretha Franklin picture behind her and this was a tribute & she talked about herself ?! Ok y’all my vote is 60 is getting to her and MTV you’re cancelled bring back REAL WORLD Vegas with the original cast, ROAD RULES with the RV & SPRING BREAK performances in Cancun okurrrrrrr ?!”

Another commenter told The Real Housewives of Atlanta star: “Jesus Kandi madonna was paying her respects to Aretha Franklin. You so worried about everything else, are you still in denial that Todd is not making you look stupid. Oh ok, worry about that.MTV should have just had a video tribute with her greatest hits, interviews, and friends talking about Aretha. That was a HORRIBLE & DISRESPECTFUL “tribute.”
A third follower claimed: “Sis was doing a full tribute to herself. I’m sitting here waiting for her to mention how all of that tied in with Aretha. Why they always calling Madonna to do everything? She messed up that Prince tribute in 2016 that we still furious about, now they had her talking about Aretha in 2018? Don’t call her to do anything for any other Black singers!!!”
What are your thoughts on the lengthy speech?
