Several celebrities were lucky enough to get engaged during the holiday season, but apparently the Queen of Soul has changed her mind.

A statement was released by Aretha Franklin today stating that she and her fiance, William Wilkerson, decided that they were moving a little too fast towards the altar. Aretha said "there were a number of things that had not been thought through thoroughly", and "there will be no wedding at this time."

Aretha and William will not comment on the situation, and there's no word as to whether the engagement has been called off, or if the couple just put their wedding plans on hold.
