Franklin Avoids Air Conditioning At All Costs

Soul queen ARETHA FRANKLIN has joined MADONNA and ALANIS MORISSETTE in forcing fans to break a sweat at her concerts - because of her gripping fear of air conditioning.
The Respect singer left a legion of celebrity fans including Christie Brinkley and Rosie Perez in a sweat at her New York concert last weekend (beg23Aug08).
According to the New York Post, the singer turned up the heat in the middle of steaming summer, prompted by fears the coolant would destroy her sultry voice.
A source tells the newspaper, "Even Aretha's security was complaining about the heat in the car on the way to the concert."
