Culture, Music: Hey Beyonce, Obama: Etta James was just playin’

  • I didn’t really mean anything. Even as a little child, I’ve always had that comedian kind of attitude. … That’s probably what went into it.
  • Etta James • Regarding a recent outburst where she trashed Beyonce for singing “At Last” during President Barack Obama’s inaugural first dance. She was miffed for not getting picked but really meant no ill will, she says. Sure. • source

Culture: Etta James to Beyonce: Don’t mess with my signature song!

  • That woman he had singing for him … she’s gonna get her %*# whipped. The great Beyonce … I can’t stand Beyonce.
  • Etta James • at a concert last week in Seattle. James is upset that Beyonce sang her signature song, “At Last,” during Barack Obama’s first dance. Beyonce actually portrayed the legendary singer in last year’s “Cadillac Records,” and James had nothing but nice things to say about her back then. James also trashed the president, but we’re guessing she’s just upset at him for this dramabomb. • source
