DETROIT (AP) — Aretha Franklin says she’s lost 85 pounds as part of an ongoing effort to drop weight.
The legendary singer said in a taped interview that aired Wednesday on “The Wendy Williams Show” that she’s been trying to shed pounds ever since looking at pictures of herself and deciding she was “entirely too fat.”
The 68-year-old Franklin underwent surgery for an undisclosed ailment in December. She did not go into detail, but did say a recurring pain in her side last year was her “first inkling that something was not what it should be.“
The second part of the interview was to air today.
