    Aretha Franklin refuses to discuss what surgery she underwent at the end of last year and she is shooting down rumors that she actually underwent gastric bypass and that's why she dropped 85 lbs!

    "Definitely not – and would not," Franklin, 68, told Access Hollywood in a two-part interview to air today and Tuesday. "I heard that [rumor]. I said, 'That is crazy.'"

    What do you think of Franklin's story? Why is she keeping mum on what type of procedure she had? Some had speculated that it was to treat cancer.
