Poor Aretha Franklin.

She's old and surly. And all she wants to do is promote her new album "Aretha Franklin Sings the Great Diva Classics."

She was doing a TV interview tour last week, where she was beamed into many morning shows around the country to talk about the new album. Between the satellite delay and a faulty earpiece (apparently), she was having trouble communicating with various TV hosts.

Check out an awkward montage of her responses or, in some cases, complete lack thereof.

Could Somebody Get Aretha Franklin a Working Earpiece?
