(Newser) – The Aretha Franklin-Tina Turner feud has taken another dissonant turn, USA Today reports. Beyoncé referred to Turner as "the queen" at the Grammy Awards—yes, that was 8 months ago—and Turner stirred things up again last week, saying: "There were so many kings and queens there that night. Her ego must be so big to think she was the only one.” The Queen of Soul begs to differ.

“I never figured her to resort to tacky press just to sell a few tickets,” Franklin said. “I really had put her in a different class” Oh, snap!
