 While Franklin had praise for  Adele and Alicia Keys, she got decidedly frosty when the subject of Taylor Swift came up.

Aretha made sure to remain diplomatic, never resorting to taking a cheap shot at anyone.

When asked her feelings about Adele she called her a “good singer,” she referred to Alicia Keys as a “young performer, good writer, producer.”

 The highest praise came for the late, great Whitney Houston, with Aretha saying: “Whitney was a talent. Definitely a talent. She had a gift.”

When asked about the current princess of pop Taylor Swift, Aretha chose not to comment on her singing, opting for fashion instead: ”OK… great gowns, beautiful gowns.”

 Nicki Minaj received the harshest blow, though, with Aretha simply refusing to answer: “I’m going to pass on that one.”
