We have to give kudos to Aretha Franklin for being a superstar for so many years.

But, as always, all good things must come to an end, and in this case it's the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin's music.

However, the singer won't bow down without one last hurrah, and has revealed that she will be creating a final album with Stevie Wonder.

According to The Mirror, Aretha made her announcement in Detroit, USA, today and said: "I must tell you, I am retiring this year.

“This will be my last year. I will be recording, but this will be my last year in concert. This is it.”

“I feel very, very enriched and satisfied with respect to where my career came from, and where it is now.

“I'll be pretty much satisfied, but I'm not going to go anywhere and just sit down and do nothing.

“That wouldn't be good either."

Aretha finished off by saying that she ultimately wants to spend more time with her grandchildren and will be staying close to home to record her new album.

We wish her all the best.



Pippa O’Connor has been modelling full-time for ten years, but in a recent interview she has revealed that she doesn’t want to continue full-time for much longer:

“I don’t think personally that I’d want to be doing it in a few years. I kind of feel like I’ve done it now – 10 years is enough.

“I love doing cool shoots for magazines and stuff so I’d always want to do things like that.

“But as far as doing it full time, like I have done for what seems like forever now, I’d be happy to leave it before anyone doesn’t want me anymore.”

Yikes – is this the harsh reality of modelling? Get out before you get thrown out?

It’s well known that the modelling industry is not easy – Lara Stone recently spoke out about being fired from a job when she revealed she was pregnant, and sports Illustrated model Chrissy Teigen also spoke out about being deemed “too fat” for a major clothing company:

“I showed up on set and they asked me if they could take a photo, and they shoot that photo off to my agency who then calls me as I’m sitting in the make-up chair and they say: ‘You need to leave right now. They just said that you are fat and that you need to have your measurements taken.”

Pippa’s family have been going through some tough times recently, since her husband Brian Ormond was accused of having dodgy dealings and meeting up with former criminal Martin ‘The Viper’ Foley because of an alleged €40,000 debt. Perhaps the stress of this situation has made her want to dedicate more time to family life?

Whatever the reason, we don’t think Pippa has to worry about losing her looks any time soon – she’s fab!
