The great Etta James is threatening to whip Beyonce’s curvascious backside for singing her song at one of the Inaugural Balls attended by President Obama. Heck, Etta wants to beat her down for even showing up at the event. Etta, rightfully so, believes that Beyonce was not worthy enough to perform at such a historic event.
“You guys know your president, right? You know the one with the big ears? Wait a minute, he ain’t my president, he might be yours, he ain’t my president. You know that woman he had singing for him, singing my song–she’s going to get her ass whipped.”
“The great Beyonce. I can’t stand Beyonce,” she spat. “She has no business up there, singing up there on a big ol’ president day, singing my song that I’ve been singing forever.”
I am going out to buy every Etta James recording I can find today. She is my hero after her slam of Beyonce. I think she said what many of us have thought for a long time. Etta should have been up there like Aretha Franklin was during the Inauguration that morning.
