  • Aretha Franklin Is Alive, But She Thanks You For Your Concern Anyways

As we shared with you yesterday, there was a scary rumor going around that Aretha Franklin had passed.

Legendary singer Aretha Franklin did not die, nor does she have pancreatic cancer.

Aretha Franklin was forced to respond to rumors of her own death on Tuesday after an unverified Twitter account announcement of her "passing" went viral. The "Respect" singer's name became a top-trending Twitter top on Tuesday, which usually means one of two things when it concerns a person of a certain age: She's dead, or it's a death hoax.

The friend, whose identity was not revealed, cleared up the rumors to television personality Shaun Robinson, who hosted "Access Hollywood" for 15 years. They spoke to Aretha moments ago and asked me to tell you please don't believe this news that was trending.

The powerhouse vocalist's statement comes shortly after one of her family friends shot down the dubious speculation about Franklin's health. "Have a good day", Robinson added.

However, one can't forget the fact that Franklin is 75 and has been performing since the 1950s.

It's not the first time that Franklin has "survived" such an internet "killing".

Franklin has shut down past questions about her health, including the time some were reporting that she had pancreatic cancer, causing her to be hospitalized near the end of 2010 and requiring her to have surgery.

"I was sitting there reading the newspaper and it was saying someone in my family said that", Franklin said in amazement. I've lost a lot of weight due to side effects of medicine, it affects your weight... She is, however, retiring, as announced earlier this year.

While speaking with Detroit TV station WDIV Local 4 (via Rolling Stone), Franklin said, "I feel very, very enriched and satisfied with respect to where my career came from and where it is now".
