So, Etta James is pissed off at Beyoncè for singing her song "At Last" at President Barack Obama's inaugural ball last month. And clearly she's not a fan or supporter of Obama, anyway.
Why? We have no clue. Maybe Etta forgot her meds.
Beyoncè played the role of Etta in the film "Cadillac Records" and from all accounts, Etta was happy with the film and her portrayal.
But, her rant at a recent concert proved different: She goes off on the president and, more so, Beyoncè by threatening to "whoop" her ass and wonders what gives her the right to sing "At Last" at the ball.
You know, your President, the one with the big ears -- he ain’t my President -- had that woman singing for him at his Inauguration. She’s going to get her ass whooped... 'How dare Beyoncè sing my song that I been singing forever. Now I’m going to sing it for y’all….”
This is clearly Etta feeling left out -- She wasn't invited to the historic inauguration and Beyoncè was. Beyoncè was asked to sing - twice! - at said historic inauguration and Etta wasn't.
Listen to the tirade:
Sit down, old woman!
