The next day, the Like A Prayer singer went on Instagram to not only salutes the former Fifth Harmony band member for her triumph( SEE HERE ), but to clarify that her cumbersome addres was NOT meant to be a full-on “tribute” to the late vocalist!

” And really to clarify: I was asked to present video of its first year by MTV! And then they asked me to share any stories I had in my vocation connected to Aretha Franklin! I shared a part of my outing and thanked Aretha for motivating me along the way. I did not intend to do a tribute to her! That would be impossible in 2 minutes with all the sound and tinsel of an award substantiate. I could never do her justice in this context or milieu. Unfortunately most people have short attention spans, and are so speedy to adjudicate. I adoration Aretha! R.E.S.P.E.C.T .”

There you have it!
