    Aretha Franklin has fallen and she can't perform! The soul diva canceled what would have been her first ever concerts in Brooklyn after breaking two ribs in a fall at her home, her rep said on Tuesday.

    The Queen of Soul suffered fractured ribs and has endured abdominal pain after Sunday's fall. Her doctors have advised her to undergo tests. She is currently recovering and hopes to make up her missed dates.

    "I was very much looking forward to being in Brooklyn and having a foot long hot dog at Coney Island," Franklin said in a statement to Detroit News. "Hopefully, I will get it before the end of August."
