Madonna, 60, tried to pay her R-E-S-P-E-C-T to the late Aretha Franklin at the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards on August 20, but it didn't go so well.
Some were quick to note that she also blundered a tribute to Prince at the 2016 Billboard Awards. "Long live the queen". 'You know, by Aretha Franklin.' They looked over at the pianist.
Cher has recalled how Jack Nicholson and director George Miller once branded her as "too old" for Hollywood.

And in the morning, my telephone rang and the man said, 'Hi, Cher, it's George Miller.' I said, 'Hey, George.' He was the director of Witches of Eastwick. I don't know who I was.
Another wondered why MTV didn't ask a black artist to give the tribute instead.
The "Best New Artist" award is an accolade that holds heavy value to artists as it is one of the few awards that are fan-given.
