    Opino que nadie tiene derecho a tocarla sin su consentimiento. Ella no quiso ser grosera y le otorgó "el beneficio de la duda" al "pensar" (enfatizo pensar entre comillas) que fue accidental, pero es evidente que ése hombre tan CERDO se aprobechó de su manera tan pacífica y de reaccionar por no hacer el momento aún mas incómodo, pero para mí ésos dedos estaban sabroséandola súper descaradamente y creo que no se vale, lo siguió haciendo a pesar de que ella se movía para cambiar la posición de su mano, ademas él debio darse cuenta enseguida de que no era su cintura lo que tocaba, y me dá mas coraje que no se solidarizó con ella ni un poco, al tratar de disimular el "supuesto accidente" y mas bien gozaba con su incomodidad y con su cuerpo.
    Lo de que si para un funeral la falda era muy corta, pues sí, pero eso no justifica que tenga que sufrir acoso, y muy tontos los hombres que creen que lo merece solo por vestirse como ella quiere, porque solo provocan que cada vez menos mujeres se quieran vestir llamativamente y con la misma frecuencia, ya que tendrán menos oportunidad de "echar un taco de ojo", y entonces las pocas que se atrevan pagarán todas las consecuencia de dicha mentalidad morbosa y machista. Ella sabía que llamaría la atención con ese vestido y en cierta forma a éso fué, ademas de cantar, claro. Pues que la gente mire lo que le dé la gana, pero siempre con respeto o por lo menos mas disimuladamente ¿realmente es mucho pedir? bueno ya vimos que para muchos sí lo es.

    My god she is terrible. Just because her grandkids listen to her crappy music. There were far better artists than this one. Jennifer Hudson owned her tribute. This was just cringe to watch.

    people are just jealous !She can dress how she want is her life and her body....also in the past example in 2009 at Mj's funeral many people was dress white and nobody say nothing....but this is how haters was in 2018 and they still are,they just want to make every super star,singer,actor or normal people to feel bad😐😑

      U must not have been to a black church sweetie because I would have been dragged for that. And it doesn't matter what color the dress was it was still inappropriate. We are honoring the queen of soul. Not her. Idk who she is.

  • Paige54059

    I don't understand why y'all have to rip a person down to make the point that you think someone else should've sang. I think she did a great job, personally. Nothing will ever compare to Aretha Franklin, but to it's really unfair to be ripping on Ariana because you don't like how she sang. Keep in mind she is arguably the most popular singer of today. She's extremely talented, it just might have not been her fit for a song. Nonetheless, I'm sure Aretha Franklin would have been honored to be remembered this way. Honestly, I think the worst part was the microphone and audio quality.

    Can we stop focusing on who could perform it better, the microphone, what happened with Ariana getting assulted, and anything else... this wasn’t a top notch production performance, it was a funeral and a show of respect so if you want a real and high quality Ariana grande performance, go somewhere else

    Ariana has a really good technique and nice clean voice but this is literally nothing compared to Aretha. I'm sure they could've found someone more suitable for this song. There are thousands of amazing singers in the world. Don't get me wrong, not hating on Ariana, I enjoy her performances but I think this just doesn't suit her at all. It seems like her voice isn't strong enough.

    Ariana is not a bad singer but she's better at pop music than soul. That is a fact. They could of did better.

  • I'M GoneWithTheWind! FABULOUS!!

    I prefer Jennifer Hudson to do it instead.. coz she's an Aretha caliber.

    For people hating on Ariana, do you literally have nothing better to do with your life? She was there because she was personally invited by Aretha's family to come and sing and sing that particular song. Maybe she was nervous, maybe she was intimidated...this type of music isn't her genre. She's a popstar, not a soul singer, her voice is very different from the fuller tunes of Aretha, OBVIOUSLY she's not going to sound anywhere near as good Aretha, she wasn't there to upstage Aretha but and ya'll out here hating your tiny-brained heart out. You giving Ariana - who Aretha actually liked - shit for her singing (when you yourself can't probably carry a note) while hiding behind the comfort of your TheXvid profiles are the ones disrespecting Aretha by making this event anything other than what is was about: paying homage to her. and reflecting on her legacy. Shame on you and nobody cares about your opinionated ass, least of all Ariana.
