Aretha Franklin really wants Halle Berry to portray her in her biopic. After Berry said she couldn't do the role justice because she can't sing, Franklin responded in a letter written to Wendy Williams and read on her show,
"Many actors have portrayed vocalists by lip-synching to the artist's original recordings," Franklin wrote in the letter.
Berry told Ryan Seacrest before the globes: "Someone should tell Aretha that I can't do her justice."
Maybe Franklin should take a hint. Sounds like Berry's trying to let her down nicely.
