Aretha Franklin says "the side effects were rough" from her treatment for an undisclosed condition. The 71-year-old singer sat at a piano Wednesday inside a Westin hotel in the Detroit suburb of Southfield. She sang Etta James' "At Last" and told reporters she's "glad to be back in it" -- a reference to her music.
