Aretha Franklin’s Ridiculous Hat Is Boosting Song’s Business

Okay, I’m all for being original, but this hat worn by Aretha Franklin on Inauguration Day is just silly!  I understand it was custom made for her by Luke Song, a South Korean immigrant who operates the store, Mr. Song’s Millinery.  The grey, felt contraption with the Swarovski encrusted bow, cost the Queen of Soul somewhere around five-hundred bones, but Song is offering a knock off version with a satin ribbon for under $200.00.  When customers said they wanted one for themselves, Mr. Song told them that i t was for the “Queen” only.  Well at least someone has respect for a living legend (Beyonce).   Song claims that requests for the hat have been pouring in since Aretha wore it while performing for the First Family.  Personally, I hate the hat.  It’s frumpy, big, and obnoxious, kind of like her ego.  Anyway, all you church going folk will be seeing this abomination during Sunday services, guaranteed.
