Madonna's Aretha Franklin Tribute at VMAs - Response to Controversy

She continued, "Fortunately one of my favorite albums was "Lady Soul" by Aretha Franklin".

Lopez went on to describe Rodriguez as her "twin soul" and said her life is "sweeter and better" with the former baseball star in it. She led me to where I am today and I know she influenced so many people in this house tonight. "Love live the queen".

Before she presented the Video of the Year award to Camila Cabelo, Madonna, who turned 60 on the day of Franklin's death, spoke about how Franklin impacted her career.

"I grew up on MTV and this is really like a tremendous honor for me", said J.Lo.

The 33rd annual MTV Video Music Awards were held at Radio City Music Hall in New York City.

Hart's outburst was one of several political moments during the Monday night award show, which took on several topics directed at the Trump administration. "I did not intend to do a tribute to her!" She ultimately told a lengthy story about the audition that jump-started her career, which was only tangentially related to Franklin, whose song she sang for the audition in question.
