Sometimes, being fly hurts.

Aretha Franklin took a little tumble last week…while wearing spiked Jimmy Choo heels. The 69-year-old Queen of Soul was in Dallas to promote her new album “A Woman Falling Out Of Love”, when she stumbled over the dangerous heels in her hotel suite. She experienced a few days of pain and ended up stopping her tour bus at an Indianapolis hospital, where it was revealed that she had a fracture in her left index toe.

Franklin tells People “I’m so grateful it wasn’t my right piano [pedal] foot”. The singer is still planning to perform in Virginia tonight, which presents a problem: “How am I supposed to match my new Marc Jacobs gown with this wooden blue hospital shoe?”

After a health scare last year and a massive weight-loss, we’re just happy to hear that the Queen is healthy enough to perform. And sixty-nine years old wearing spiked Jimmy Choos? Go’n head, Aretha!
