aretha franklin miley cyrus Aretha Franklin advises Miley Cyrus to decide if she's 'a legitimate singer or a novelty'

When it comes to maintaining a career that anyone would be envious of, the “Queen of Soul” Aretha Franklin is a pro.

She has been in the spotlight since she was 15 years old, and when she appeared on “The Talk” on Tuesday (Dec. 10), she had some advice for headline-dominating star Miley Cyrus and her recent antics.

“I think she’s typical of one that’s very young. She’s having fun, she’s doing what she wants to do,” Franklin says. “But I think at some point she will have to sit and decide whether or not she wants to be viewed as what is called a legitimate singer or a novelty.”
