    Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin may be 69, but she can still rock a pair of Jimmy Choo stilettos. That said, 'Retha did take a tumble in her footware on Friday while out promoting A Woman Falling Out of Love, her new album! According to PEOPLE, Franklin fell in her Dallas hotel suite after catching a toe on one of her spiked heels. It resulted in a fractured extremity. Ouch!

    It "hurt like heck for a minute, but seemed to subside," Franklin said, via a statement issued by her rep. Hurt like heck? I bet it hurt like FUCK!

    I think it's amazing that the Queen of Soul still wears Jimmy Choo heels.
