- By Bossip Staff Categories: Congratulations, News, Not a Total Betty But a Vast Improvement

Aretha Franklin Grammy Awards

Aretha Franklin made her official come back from Mysterious Illness-ville this weekend.

First she popped up at the Pistons vs. Heat game in the Motor City. Then she appeared on the Grammy Awards last night via satellite to thank J-Hud and ’em for her live tribute.

We told y’all the “mystery illness” was weight loss surgery.

Hopefully, since her Grammy outfit was also one of the looks for a Jet Magazine photo shoot, we’ll know all the details soon.

More before and after pics below.

    I’m a Detroit girl so there is no way I’m throwing shade at the Queen. But it’s still possible that it could have been cancer. My grandmother was the same way she was losing weight and we didn’t know why because she still looked healthy. When she went to the doctor that’s when we found out that it was cancer. Unfortunately it was to late for my grandmother but maybe not for the Queen. Whether it was cancer or weight loss surgery I wish Aretha nothing but the best and she did look great!!!

      to 7Lady…

      That pic is quite old, not like she just recently posed for it. Its already been ridiculed more than enough, so why all the rude/crude
      remarks n-o-w??? She seems
      to finally be trying to shed
      that image, so why not more
      positive reinforcement to offer?

    This beautiful woman deserves LOVE & RESPECT! She is battling Cancer….so get it together BSSP cuz you’re on some straight BS! Cancer will make u drop more than a few pounds-Idiots!!

  • hmmmmmm*hunching shoulders*

    This headline is plain ignorant and disrespectful…if you’ve been following the REAL headlines you’d know that she’s battling cancer.

    i know she was suppose to have pancreatic cancer and the removed a portion of her stomach. but im praying her weight loss is a healthy one.

  • vera

    but she doesnt look too bad.

  • Entoon

    I never understood why Mrs. Aretha had gotten so damn big anyway! to me that was the sign of sickness! she looks great and I pray her health is good! Just so glad she could have a tribute while still alive! Now she’s a LEGEND!!!

  • daahlingnikki

    There were several reports that stated that she didn’t have pancreatic cancer after her trip to the hospital…hence the mystery…but best wishes to her in whatever form of recovery she is going through…

    Don’t be mean.She might have cancer or some other serious illness.We don’t know what life holds for us or our loved ones.

  • *Mrs.Trevino*

    I don*t like her new look. Her head looks small and she still looks sick to me. If she got lypo, she should have gotten a brest reduction too.

  • It's Me

    That is good she dropped the weight. I hope she continues to get well and beat the odds…

  • Amc

    It looks like she had something done. If you check out her neck you will see how shrunken it looks. Thats one of the setbacks of doing that surgery.
