As the world clamors for details about her health, Aretha Franklin’s cousin is talking to a Michigan newspaper.  Brenda Corbett tells “The Detroit Free Press” that she expects her cousin, music’s “Queen of Soul,” to be released from the hospital this weekend.  The “Free Press” also cites a source who states that Franklin has — as reported in various media outlets — been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.  Corbett hasn’t confirmed the diagnosis, but says, quote, “Aretha is doing better than doctors expected.  She has a long life in front of her and will be back in concert, on stage, late spring or early summer.”
Just last week, Franklin underwent surgery for an undisclosed illness.  Franklin described the surgery as “highly successful” in a statement following the procedure.  The previous month, the legendary singer told the world she was canceling all of her concerts through May 2011 on doctor’s orders.
