Aretha Franklin on Her Exercise: ‘I Walk Super Stores — Walmart and Kmart’
Where does a music legend go to get a little exercise?
If you’re Aretha Franklin, you think retail.
If you’re thinking Franklin would be recognized by other shoppers, you’re right.
The singer said people often try to come up to her and talk while she’s walking, “but I really don’t like to break my stride when I’m walking so I just change aisles,” she said.
Franklin, a Detroit native who turned 72 years old on March 25, said exercise is a lifestyle change she made after some recent health issues.
Another lifestyle change: overcoming her fear of flying.
“It won’t be too long,” she said of when she’ll travel by airplane again. “I think by the end of the summer.”
