Madonna has been accused of accused her of making the VMA's only tribute to the late Aretha Franklin all about herself.

Madonna ended her tribute by thanking Franklin for the impact that Franklin's music had. "She explained she knew the soul icon's "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman" off by heart, and performed it a capella, helping her career to take off. I could go back to getting robbed, held at gunpoint and being mistaken for a prostitute in my third-floor walkup that was a crack house. The fact remains that without a will, court battles for her assets by creditors or extended family members could ensue. Actually, who everyone?Show some R-E-S-P-E-C-TMadonna gets roasted P.S. why is Travis Scott dressed like a minion?

"She fought a good fight", the singer's nephew Tim Franklin told Radar.

Despite the clarification, many are still furious the only tribute the VMAs seemed to offer Franklin was a brief tale about Madonna by Madonna, though it should come as no surprise. "Odd thing to do, but since you were intending to update the kitchen next year it doesn't make any difference, does it?" But I still think her ill-advised speech was a doozy - even for Madonna! There are plenty of examples of estates - Jimi Hendrix, Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson - escalating in value after the artist passed away.

Madonna presents the award for video of the year at the MTV Video Music Awards at Radio City Music Hall on Monday, Aug. 20, 2018, in NY. "All the love that my fans, that my friends, that everybody shows me is genuine and that's something that God give me that you can't buy, bi**h".

To put it gently - it was a hot mess and left many wondering how she landed the gig of paying tribute to the Queen of Soul in the first place.

A few of the star's die-hard fans managed to shine a ray of light on the situation though, including one who called the tribute a "Great speech!"
