Beyonce's Dad Has Fightin' Words for Aretha

Beyonce's dad and manager, Mathew Knowles, isn't about to let Miss Aretha Franklin go off on his daughter.

When asked about the B's introduction of Tina Turner at the Grammys, specifically referring to her as "the queen" -- which made Aretha mad -- Papa Knowles fired back at the Aretha's comments.

"As a manager I am not taking something this ridiculous to Beyonce. Beyonce referred to Tina Turner as a 'queen,'" he told CelebTV.com. "Not queen of gospel, queen of soul, queen of blues, Queen of England. I consider my wife a queen and sometimes call her that.  Does Aretha have a problem with that?"

That's actually pretty funny, Mat. What's not going to be amusing is when Aretha shows up at the Knowles house to settle the score. I'm pretty sure she can take Mathew. And his wife. And his daughters. And their pets.
