Aretha Franklin: Kim Kardashian shouldn't take Kanye West's baby on tour

It's been reported that Kim Kardashian plans to join her man, Kanye West, on tour to promote his new album. The album, which has no name yet, is scheduled to hit stores June 18. Girlfriends going on tour is nothing new for the music world, but there's one big difference with Kardashian.

Kim is very pregnant at the moment, with her baby due in around two months. If she's jumping on the road with Kanye in the Summer, that means she'll be toting a newborn along with her. Is that the best idea, though? Not according to the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin.

A photographer caught up with Franklin and asked if she'd take a baby on tour. "I wouldn't," she says, "I can't speak for anyone else, but I wouldn't." Whether Kim will heed Aretha's words of wisdom remains to be seen.

At 71 years old, Franklin is still making music. She's working with Clive Davis once again and is reportedly collaborating with producers Babyface and Danger Mouse on a new album.
