DETROIT -- A month after surgery in Detroit for an undisclosed ailment, Aretha Franklin says her health is "superb."
Franklin called in to Wednesday's installment of "The Wendy Williams Show," telling the host she was relaxing at a casino hotel in her hometown and hopes to begin traveling soon, saying she'll be "looking for a fabulous beach." She says she has two more weeks of down time as she continues her recovery.
The legendary singer also vowed to reschedule the concert dates she missed.
Franklin's voice was strong and steady during the interview, and she hinted she was dating someone.
With the exception of written statements and print interviews with Jet magazine, this was one of the first times the 68-year-old Franklin has been heard since the Dec. 2 surgery.
