Tributes pour in for Aretha Franklin

Fox & Trends with Carley Shimkus.

The MTV Video Music Awards plan to honor the legacy of Aretha Franklin — they are just not sure how they will do.

The VMAs will air live Monday. Show executive producer Jesse Ignjatovic tells The Associated Press on Friday that his team is “working on a lot of different options.”

Franklin, who was 76, died Thursday in her home in Detroit of pancreatic cancer.

Ignjatovic says he’s working on finding the right tone and the right artist” to pay tribute to the Queen of Soul.

He adds: “Whether an action or spoken — just something that is organic and done in a way that feels tonally, because it’s Aretha Franklin.”

The VMAs will be held at the Radio City Music Hall in New York.
