Argument over Aretha Franklin leads to Suffolk shooting, witnesses say   As We’re sure you heard, Aretha Franklin died at 9:50 A.M. yesterday morning. Well . . . apparently, two guys in a barbershop in Suffolk, Virginia heard about Aretha’s death right after it happened, and they got into an argument about whether Halle Berry should play her in a movie about her life. The argument got physical . . . and at 10:45 A.M., less than one hour after Aretha died, one of the guys SHOT the other one. We’re not sure who did the shooting . . . the “yes, Halle Berry should play her in a movie” guy or the “no, Halle Berry shouldn’t play her in a movie” guy. The guy who got shot was taken to the hospital in serious condition, and the other guy was arrested. As for the debate . . . back in 2011, Aretha said she wanted Halle to play her in a movie about her life, but Halle said she couldn’t sing well enough.  And when the movie went into development . . . where it’s still stuck . . . Jennifer Hudson got the role.
