Madonna appeared at MTV's VMAs on Monday to present the award for video of the year and honor Aretha Franklin, who died last week after a battle with pancreatic cancer. Her so-called tribute, however, left viewers pu, with some saying her speech was as much an appreciation of herself as it was to the Queen of Soul.

Madonna was asked to speak about the late Queen of Soul at Monday's award ceremony in New York.

Madonna opened her statement by paying tribute to Franklin, but from there, it evolved into a story about Madonna's journey into the music business, report CNN and the BBC.
