Oh, I don't know - I think Aretha wears it best. I'd probably look a little too anime in it!

I think I remember a conversation amoung people living in my house at the moment that went something like this(I only think because I was mostly asleep at the time):

Aretha looks in mirror.
Wonders (to self) "Is this hat too much?"
Replies (to self) "Oh wait I'm Aretha F**KING Franklin, of couse it isn't!"

LOVE IT. That's pretty much what we thought she said as we watched in the Telephone Bar on the LES...

It's fantastic. It ranks right up there with the most memorable bits of the ceremony.

Dan's mostly asleep memory is actually correct. Also I had some weird pain issues this morning, so I was a bit concerned that even though I stayed up to watch the inauguration, it might get a bit not properly remembered (my memory is...special). And then I realised that no matter what, there was no freaking way I would forget that hat, and chances were high that long in the future it was what was going to stick in my mind anyway...

Somebody made that for her. She has got to have her own milliner. I almost wish I had that job.

YAAAAAAY! I've packed! I've probably forgotten things but I don't care!

Larry King actually asked about the hat in an interview. She says, "Well, I bought it at a little millinery that I frequent out in Detroit." Link here.
