Hats off to Aretha!

Remember that hat Aretha Franklin wore when singing on Obama Day?  Well, she’s thinking hard about whether she can part with it or not — because the Smithsonian has asked to display it in their museum!

Some thought it was ridiculous, but I loved it.  I mean, there are hats and there are hats, but this was a hat, mama!  And to wear a hat like that, you need a premiere event.  So what would be a bigger celebration than the inauguration of our first African-American president, when you are the Queen of Soul, and you are singing to him?


  1. that hat was AMAZING. i kept waiting for her to catch a breeze and sail off over the mall..ala the flying nun… still singing of course…
