Aretha Franklin cancels more shows

Whatever is ailing Aretha Franklin appears to still be an issue. In addition to the concerts she cancelled in Chicago and Connecticut this week, she has now cleared her calendar for June, postponing two more shows. A rep told the Associated Press Tuesday she would resume performing in July, but offered no other details. Last week, her publicists acknowledged that the Queen of Soul — who has weathered other health scares in recent years — needed treatment for an unspecified ailment. Despite that announcement, she still appeared on the “American Idol” finale, singing via satellite with the top finalists.
