The line-up for Clive Davis Presents: A Tribute to Aretha Franklin has not been announced.

Madonna chose to use her slot presenting an award at the MTV VMAs in NY last night to pay tribute to the late Aretha Franklin.

"You're all probably wondering why I'm telling you this story", Madonna said towards the end of her speech. 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.

"I love you ty for unbelievable us with your lovely and powerful speech you're incredible", another fan added. She didn't get what she was trying out for, but it led to another job in Paris. But I will say while teaching me about your life, u taught me so much about life and schooled me in mine.

So if Franklin had loaned $1 million to one child and $200 to another child, they would need to be repaid as part of this estate, said Christenson.
