"I feel great. The doctors say I can do whatever I feel like I am up to do. Of course, that doesn't mean any concerts or anything like that. But I can do things around the house, and today I am just piddling around the house," Aretha Franklin said in a statement. "I am putting Aretha together first," she tells Jet Magazine. "This is Aretha time to do whatever it is that I need to do. But I will talk more later."
